Chris Gentry was raised just outside Chattanooga in Soddy Daisy, TN where he graduated from The McCallie School. He then attended the University of Tennessee and obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, minoring in Business Administration. Mr. Gentry briefly left the area to attend Michigan State University College of Law, from which he obtained his Juris Doctor in 2005.
In 2006, Chris returned to his roots and began practicing law at The McMahan Law Firm. He is licensed to practice law in both Tennessee and Georgia, and is admitted to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. He is also a member of the Chattanooga Bar Association, Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association, and National Organization for Social Security Claimant’s Representatives.
Chris handles civil litigation, including motor vehicle accidents, worker’s compensation and premises liability. However, in the past few years, he has handled the majority of The McMahan Law Firm’s Social Security Disability Insurance cases. He represents claimants in hundreds of disability hearings a year in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. Within a single calendar year, Chris’ work results in disabled persons receiving millions of dollars in benefits.
