Brad McLelland grew up in a suburb of Atlanta. He attended Auburn University and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree. From there he was admitted into the University of Alabama School of Law. During law school, Mr. McLelland was able to study abroad as well as an intern for two large insurance defense firms which represented many of the nation’s largest insurers and companies. Mr. McLelland excelled during law school and graduated at the top of his class, magna cum laude.
After graduation, Mr. McLelland decided to move to the Georgia coast to be closer to family. He spent the next several years practicing primarily insurance defense of personal injury claims such as car accidents, slip and fall injuries, dog bites, and workers’ compensation claims. Realizing his heart was not with the insurance companies, he began his own firm with the mission of helping the very same people who were injured in the accidents which he had previously defended. A decade later he partnered with his friend, David Whitworth, to form Whitworth & McLelland. Together, they combined their resources, experience, and talent to offer the best representation of the injured anywhere in the state of Georgia. Mr. Whitworth recently retired from the practice of law and Mr. McLelland resumed his solo practice.
Mr. McLelland is married to a teacher who currently works at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. Together, they enjoy raising their ten-year-old daughter, who thinks she's 16! When they have free time, his family enjoys traveling and relaxing at the beach.
