Law Firm History

Mabry & McClelland History

Six decades ago, our firm was founded when Speer Mabry and Bo Chambers joined together in the practice of law. Originally located in the William Oliver building in downtown Atlanta, the firm moved to Century Center in the early 1970s where it remains today. Throughout the history of the firm, our approach to client representation has remained the same. We work hand in hand with our clients to help them achieve their goals. This approach has allowed us to develop substantial, long-term relationships with our clients. Today, we are still serving some of the same organizations that we represented when the firm was first formed.

After over 60 years of civil litigation practice, Mr. Mabry has retired from Mabry & McClelland, LLP and has relocated to Macon, where he will continue an active mediation and arbitration practice. Mr. Mabry’s litigation experience includes personal injury and property damage claims, general corporate and business transactions, commercial law, products liability, transportation, and insurance coverage. He has served as the Chair of the Dispute Resolution Section of the Atlanta Bar Association and served on active duty and in the U.S. Army Reserves for 30 years, retiring as a Lt. Colonel. Mr. Mabry plans to use the insight and experience as a litigator to assist parties in reaching a resolution of their disputes through mediation and arbitration.


Four of our partners have been together for almost two decades. We enjoy long-term relationships with our clients, some of whom have been clients since the 1960s.
