MacLean Law Office, which includes the husband-wife team of Daryl and Andrea MacLean, has been selected as the 2017 Business of the Year by the Delano Area Chamber of Commerce (DACC).
MacLean Law Office, located at 115 Bridge Avenue East in Delano, will be formally recognized at the annual DACC celebration dinner Saturday, March 11 at B’s on the River in Watertown.
Daryl MacLean has been practicing law since 1995. His legal practice includes estate planning, business law, property law, and divorce.
The MacLeans have been loyal supporters of the DACC since they opened their practice in Delano.
“For small-business owners to make the huge level of time commitment that he and his employees do, is huge,” stated one nomination. “It is huge in terms of the percentage of manpower helping at events and the commitment out of the office to support Delano and other local businesses.”
MacLean is involved in many community organizations in Delano, and for many years has served as chair of the DACC Business Development Committee, coordinating the annual Christmas tree lighting event, and the Delano Community Expo.
“As Expo Chair, he has been very instrumental in growing the Expo,” stated one nomination. “This is a huge event for the chamber. He is committed and effective in his efforts.”
He is also a member of the DACC Board of Directors, is the education coordinator for the Delano BNI Network Masters chapter, and was involved with the local Jaycees chapter.
In the past, MacLean has volunteered as a coach for the Rockford High School Mock Trial team and served on the Love In the Name of Christ (LOVE INC) Board, an organization providing resources to neighbors in need in the Delano community.
“I really enjoy being able to work with Daryl and Andrea in their efforts with the DACC and the community as a whole,” said DACC Executive Director Ryan Gueningsman. “Daryl always goes out of his way to make sure everyone’s voice is heard, and he works to move forward with the community events he oversees in the most efficient manner possible. He truly is an asset to our chamber of commerce and to Delano.”
In his work, MacLean has developed a reputation for thorough preparation and meticulous review of every client file. With this attention also comes a personal quality to his relationship with clients.
MacLean is a past president of Twin Cities Christian Legal Aid, an organization that provides legal services to homeless and low income individuals in the Twin Cities.
He and his family attend church at Riverwood Covenant Church in Greenfield.
MacLean is also an Honor Guard member of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christ-centered servant ministry keeping the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.
His passion is reflected in his teaching. He has spoken to classes around the Twin Cities and is a regular contributor to the campus legal studies program at Crown College.
