​    Gregory J. McKay

             Attorney at Law

Greg is the eldest son of Jack and Sarah McKay  of Wedowee, Alabama. He attended Auburn University where he obtained a B.A. in Business in 1978.  Subsequently, Greg attended Samford University's Cumberland School of Law where he obtained a Juris Doctorate degree in 1982. Presently, Mr. McKay is admitted to the Alabama Bar and is a member of the Birmingham Bar Association.

With more than 30 years experience, Greg has devoted his career to helping disabled adults and children navigate the legal system to receive benefits . While Greg specializes in all types of disability claims, which include social security and long/short term or ERISA, he is also experienced in other sub specialty areas. 

Greg is married to Kate McKay and is an avid golfer and Auburn fan. The McKay's make their home in Birmingham, Alabama.  Collectively, Greg and Kate have  four  adult children and two rescue dogs.


Kelly is a native of  the Birmingham area. She came to work at McKay Law in December of 2014. Kelly is instrumental in assisting Mr. McKay with the management of  long and short term disability cases. Kelly is also the firm receptionist and a valued member of the McKay Law family.  It is her kind voice on the phone our clients hear most often.

Kelly and her husband make their home in Ashville, Alabama where she has a beautiful farm.  Kelly has a passion for all animals but especially for her horses. She is very involved with equine rescue and horse shows involving young  novice riders.  Additionally, Kelly assists with student riders who seek educational scholarship opportunities through various equine organizations. Kelly is presently serving as the President of the Alabama Quarter Horse Association. Much like the other McKay Law staff, Kelly has a love of dogs and has two corgi's she's especially fond of.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
