Mac McClurkin was born in Montgomery, Alabama. As a child, he and his family moved to Savannah, Georgia, where he spent most of his time on the water. He attended Auburn University and majored in both Aviation Professional Flight and Business Administration. While at Auburn, Mac obtained his commercial, instrument, and multi-engine flight ratings, as well as his flight instructor ratings (CFI, CFII, MEI). He then went on to fly as a corporate pilot for Tractor and Equipment Company out of Birmingham.
Initially, law school was not a part of his plan since his ultimate goal was to fly aircrafts. However, the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, was the moment he decided he would take the LSAT with his flight buddy.
He passed the exam and received a full-ride scholarship. Mac completed his law degree at the University of Alabama in 2008. His experience as a professional pilot helped him develop close attention to detail, which is necessary to succeed in complex litigation.
His passion is helping individuals who are going through a difficult time in their lives. He enjoys “seeing the relief on their faces” when he’s able to help them receive financial compensation for any damages they experienced. Mac’s greatest passion is winning for his clients, and he looks forward to fighting for justice on their behalf.
Growing up, Mac learned how to be successful from watching his dad’s strong work ethic. His father’s example has encouraged him to work hard for injured victims. Some of the qualities he admires about Long & Long include the amazing atmosphere, the friendly and engaging staff, and the fact that everyone is hard-working and a team player.
Outside of the law firm, Mac loves playing the guitar and sports, such as basketball and golf, and attending United Methodist Church. Also, he immensely enjoys spending time with his three children: Melania, Francie, and Preston.
