Mr. McLellan received his juris doctor degree from Tulane University School of Law in 1988 and practiced law with the firm of Chaffe, McCall, Phillips, Toler & Sarpy in their Admiralty section until joining Turnaboat Services, Ltd. in 1991.  At Turnaboat, he directed the company’s pollution spill response program and managed the claims office for the 1993 Tampa Bay oil spill.  This incident was the first major oil spill in the United States handled under the mandates of OPA 90. 

In 1995, Mr. McLellan went to work for GAB Robins Environmental & Marine, Inc. becoming its President in 1997. At GAB, Mr. McLellan directed the company’s claims management and cost auditing operations and, in this capacity, led the company’s response in many major pollution events throughout the United States.  At the end of 2003, Mr. McLellan left GAB to start MR & Associates, LLC. 

At MR, Mr. McLellan continues to focus on properly managing claims and costs relative to pollution events.  In December 2005, Mr. McLellan was retained to adjust all third party claims resulting from the M/V SELENDANG AYU grounding and oil spill off of Unalaska in the Aleutian Islands.  Mr. McLellan is a member of various maritime organizations, the Maritime Lawyers Association, the Association of Average Adjusters, and the Louisiana State Bar.  Mr. McLellan has published articles and given numerous presentations pertinent to third claims management and cost auditing of cleanup expenses relative to pollution events and has been retained as an expert in these fields.
