Attorney Michael R. McCray
Michael McCray is known as a tenacious
advocate and champion for the underdog; one
who fights for the rights of others . . . with a
never say die mentality.  Michael champions
individual and community causes; and
business and real estate development projects
with a sense of righteousness and justice.  
Michael spent his formative years in Pine Bluff,
Arkansas when the city had the dubious
reputation of being ranked the worse city in
America – two years in a row.  From this
environment, Michael developed a strong sense
of social responsibility and a burning desire to
improve the living and working conditions of
people living in communities like his hometown.

Washington, D.C. with the Clinton
Administration and began his community
development career working on the Presidential
Empowerment Initiative.  Also  known as the
Federal Empowerment Zones and Enterprise
Communities (EZ/EC) Initiative where he served
with distinction as community development
specialist and a National Speaker on
community economic development issues and
technology for USDA; McCray toured the country
conducting technology training and speaking
engagements at three White House
Empowerment Zone Conferences and four
Regional Enterprise Community Meetings
across the country.  Other featured speakers at
these events included Vice President Al Gore,
Secretary Andrew Cuomo,Secretary Rodney
Slater and Carol Rasco, Special Assistant to the
President.
