Two of Gwinnett’s Superior Court Judges will retire next year, and the races to replaces them have begun. Earlier this month, Tracey Mason Blasi announced she would seek the position being left behind by Judge Dawson Jackson. Today Chris McClurg announced his intention to seek the same post.
McClurg, 42, served in the United States Army in the 18th Airborne Corps before earning his law degree from Emory Law School. He and his wife Martina have been married for 23 years and have one son, Tyler. The McClurgs live in the Suwanee area.
McClurg is a civil litigator in Lawrenceville with a focus on business and family law. McClurg has appeared in numerous Superior courts in Georgia as well as the Georgia Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.
Chris McClurg plans to campaign for the Superior Court seat being vacated by long-time judge Dawson Jackson by taking his message directly to the voters. “The voters of Gwinnett County deserve a judge who has the legal experience to decide the difficult
cases of divorce, business disputes and felony criminal cases. I have the courtroom experience to serve families and victims of crime in Gwinnett County.”
