Excellent
Mr. McClurg is a man of his word. If he says he's going to do something, he does it. I am so thankful to have him represent my family in a recent adoption case. Even though he was on vacation during the process, he continued to work & file the necessary paperwork to make sure it was completed in a timely fashion. I would recommend Mr. McClurg to anyone that has legal issues.

proven excellence!
My family and I have hired Mr McClurg over the past 11 years for various issues (domestic, civil, criminal) and have recommended him to many friends. One of his best attributes is his drive to gather all information and understand how it can help your case. He isn't afraid of a challenge and researches all areas to ensure that he has done his absolute best in providing all solutions available to you. He is open and honest with his clients and he has a knack for thinking outside of the box. There is no doubt, anytime I need any legal advice or representation, he is our go to guy!

Mr. McClurg has handled legal matters for me over the years. I recently had an issue with an out of state employer who refused to pay me. He went out of his way to help me when no one else would. I highly recommend him. He is very genuine when it comes to helping his clients.

Chris took over a case on behalf of my grandmother and me and did a phenomenal job. I can't say enough how grateful I am for the hard work he put into it, and he made it look SO easy. He's really good at what he does, very knowledgeable and knows the law. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him to anyone! Fine job, Chris!

Thee BEST Attorney in Georgia!
Chris is undoubtedly an amazing attorney. I was referred to him by another prominent attorney and after my initial conversation with Chris, I knew that he was the attorney that I both wanted and needed. While going through a very unpleasant and stressful divorce and custody, Chris provided me with the comfort and assurance that I sought. He was very much engaged in my case and he and his staff made me feel like family by making themselves readily available to me. If Chris was not available, there was Michelle (his assistant) who gave me the support and encouragement that i needed to get through this tumultuous time in my life . Chris went through great lengths to make sure that things worked out in my favor. It would take more than a paragraph for me to explain the wonders that Chris made for me. I am FOREVER grateful that God placed him in my life during my extreme time of need. I WILL be hiring him again for sure! If you are looking for an aggressive attorney that is willing to go that extra mile for you at affordable rates, I KNOW you will be highly impressed by Christopher McClurg.

Client
Mr. McClurg has been very professional and trustworthy through our unfortunate personal ordeal. He has given us direction, hope and insurance that we can be represented in a manner that is aligned entirely with the law. We are in our 70's and trust is a very-very important thing to us. Chris has certainly left us with this impression.

Aggressive, knowledgeable, and honest
I have known Chris on a personal and professional level for many years. He is very trustworthy and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with him taking my case as well as representing my daughter in the same incident. The case was a family issue that could have went either way and could have ultimately jeopardized my job and life. From our very first conversation regarding the case I felt at ease that he would handle it. He was confident and reassuring and that speaks volumes when having to deal with the court system. I have and would recommend him. We were very pleased with the outcome of out case and with how Chris handled it.

Guardianship
We sought Mr. McClurg's legal advice regarding guardianship of our niece. He was extremely thorough in reviewing our concerns and addressing what solutions were possible. There is no doubt he knew the law extremely well as he advised us quickly on what our possibilities were. He followed up his advice with research on similar cases to present evidence to us on how the case might proceed. He also helped us minimize our legal costs. I definitely recommend Mr. McClurg for guardianship and custody issues.

Confident, trustworthy
I love a professional that makes you feel he knows what he's doing. Mr McClurg came highly recommended, and he did not disappoint. Through almost 2 years of a contract lawsuit, Chris McClurg was on top of things. He prepared and guided me through a deposition that I think was supposed to intimidate me, but with Chris by my side.....did not... The case was eventually settled to my satisfaction. My rating for "keeping me informed" was good/average because they told me things on a need to know/actionable information basis....so I got emails or calls a week or so before the deposition and the court date (enough time to reorganize my schedule, make hotel bookings etc so maybe it was more like 2 weeks) . There were sometimes, months, when I didn't hear anything. That was enough information/updating for me but might be too little for others.

Child custody case
I have know Chris for years and when it came to needing a lawyer, Chris was first on my list. The main thing with Chris is I was sure he would tell me the truth even if it was not what I wanted to hear. Also he has been around the courts in Gwinnett county for a long time. If you are in need of representation call Chris.

Divorce Attorney
So far in spite of a difficult divorce, Chris has truly payed attention to what is important in my case. Even though the opposing party has created a circus, Chris really cares about his clients and his focus is on target. He was recommended to me and has not let me down yet. I will be recommending him to others with no reservation.

My experience with Chris was great!! I first found out about Chris 7 years ago when he was appointed to represent my husband. Ever since I has used Chris as my lawyer. And I will keep using him as long as needed. He even took care of my husbands case in February 2014 and he was successful. I really recommend Christopher McClurg 100%!! I'm also going to go do my will with him too. Thank you Chris for always doing a great job!!

Exceptional experience.
I worked with Chris over the course of several years, with multiple interconnected business issues. At every occasion Chris was extremely competent, thorough, and professional. If you are looking for a business law partner for your company, you found him.

Chris is fantastic and very knowledgeable! Excellent criminal deffense attorney!!!
Chris Mcclurg helped me with a hard case in Gwinnett, but I knew I could have full trust in him. He did an unexceptional job with my case three years ago. He got my DUI charge dismissed, along with minimizing any penalties. He truly is very knowledgeable with the law and system. I am so grateful for all of his help. Honestly, the results from my case were much better than I ever expected and I'm so thankful for that! He has also helped a family member of mine with a tough divorce case, which was very successful. It's hard to find an attorney that will fight to the fullest extent for you, but Chris Mcclurg can and will do that.

great experience!
Personally I felt like Chris was a great guy to work with and felt confident in his abilities to handle my case. He did a phenomenal job! I really felt like he was someone I could talk to, someone who would hear me and totally trustworthy. I really am thankful for him and would most definitely use him again as well as recommended him to anyone who needed a good, smart and knowledgeable attorney. Great guy too!

A fathers advocate ........update
I recently used Chris to help me legitimate and get joint custody of my toddler son. This was not a easy case by any means considering the history between myself and my child’s mother. Chris knew exactly what I wanted and then went out there and was able to get it for me . From the start this case was difficult as I knew it would be but I trusted Chris, followed his direction, and everything turned out better than I expected . I will definitely use him in the future if I ever need another attorney for any reason . The only downfall to Chris is he is a OSU fan which you will see when you visit his office . Oh well not everyone can be perfect.

A great advocate for fathers
I am using Chris presently in a custody case involving my toddler son. As a father it’s hard to find good representation but I have no doubt this case will be resolved in my favor. Chris is a artist in the court room and knows his way around the court room well. He has represented 3 other of my friends and did a great job with them too. not only have I suggested him to others I will continue to do so.

Confident, Just Advocate
Chris McClurg quickly resolved my matter with tenacity and put me at ease in mediation. He clearly knows the law inside and out and I am hoping to retain him in the immediate future for any legal needs I have.

Defense Attorney, Divorse attorney, Civil Attorney he can do it all!
Mr McClurg has handled 3 seperate cases for me or a family member. Every time we came out on top where we belonged. I had no idea how important it was to have someone not only vested in knowledge of the law, but knows the system as well as he does. Most importantly, it is obvious that he is well respected by the judges and opposing lawyers as well. That is something you can't get everywhere.

Relationship: Friend
"I have known Chris personally and professionally for years. He is one of the most fearless and imposing attorneys I know. His intellect is unmatched and he can always seem to find an angle on a case that will cut the feet out from under an opponent. Oppose him at your own risk."

Personal injury Attorney | Oct 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Chris and I have worked together on several cases and he brings to each matter a wealth of experience, keen legal insight, and tireless advocacy for each client. Recently, we handled a personal injury case which settled, without the need for a trial, for $200,000.00, which also meant that our client did not have to go to trial and re-live a horrible experience all over again. As a C.P.A. and a licensed Georgia attorney, as well as previous experience working for a Fortune 500 company, Chris brings his unique education, experience, and practical solutions to each legal matter and for each client. He is always glad to proceed to trial, but realizes that a trial is not always in a client's best interest. Chris has also been lead counsel with me on several other types of cases, such as family law, probate, business, criminal defense, and appellate. In each case, Chris has brought his unique insight and energy to bear for the good of our clients."
