Bob McNally started riding at age 12 when he fixed up a mini-bike with his father. The junkyard frame and 2 horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine set in motion a passion for riding and all things mechanical. Born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan, Bob spent 3 years living in Ohio before moving to Georgia in 1994. Bob attended Kennesaw State University graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Bob worked for 6 years as a technician and service advisor at a Dodge and Jeep dealership while attending high school and college. Trading in four wheels for two, he left the car business to begin work as a service advisor at Killer Creek Harley-Davidson in Roswell, Georgia. Three years later, Bob was promoted to Service Manager. Over the next two and a half years, he supervised the technicians and service staff to ensure quality work when repairing and upgrading customers' Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Bob's first Harley-Davidson was a 2003 FXDP Dyna Defender police motorcycle which he and the fine technicians at Killer Creek fixed up and modified after work and on the weekends. The repairs were finished just in time to ride from Atlanta to Daytona Bike Week in the spring of 2006.
On January 1, 2007, Bob lost one of his best friends, Jack Alexander, to a motorcycle accident. Jack was an experienced rider who was riding his Suzuki GSXR750 late in the afternoon on New Year's Day when a distracted and negligent driver turned left in front of him. Although he was a highly skilled rider and was wearing significant protective riding gear including a full face DOT compliant helmet, Jack did not survive the collision. This sudden and tragic loss was the impetus for Bob to seek a law practice focused on helping injured motorcyclists and their families.
Bob attended Atlanta's John Marshall Law School, graduating with a Doctorate degree in Jurisprudence, and is a Member of the Florida Bar in Good Standing. Bob has worked for Georgia attorney Charles Watwood, the founder of LAWBIKE, assisting him in helping injured motorcyclists to recover millions of dollars in settlements and judgments after their motorcycle accidents. LAWBIKE has now expanded to Florida, with an office in Panama City Beach, centrally located in the panhandle region. Bob consults with prospective clients throughout the state of Florida but focuses on assisting the riders and supporting the motorcycling community in the panhandle area. Bob is licensed to practice law in Florida and Georgia and maintains a residence in Panama City Beach.
