John made the move to Mobile in October 2005 to join a large Mobile-based law firm where he handled hundreds of insurance defense cases involving automobile accidents, construction disputes, contract disputes, real estate sale disputes, real property disputes, and product liability. He also continued performing appellate work and added landlord/tenant and probate cases to his practice areas.

He is passionate about solutions that center around the health and well-being of any child involved in a case. John knows from experience what it’s like to go through the stress of court as a client. His approach includes keeping the client informed at all times and being available for them when they need him.
John is admitted to practice in both Alabama and Mississippi.

Ron is a 1993 graduate of Auburn University, where he earned a degree in Political Science with minors in English and Religion. He went on to earn a Master of Public Administration from the University of South Alabama in 1996. Finally, Ron completed his academic legal training at the Cumberland School of Law, Samford University, in 2001, where he was awarded the Juris Doctor degree.
Admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2001, Ron went to work for Hall, Booth, Smith & Slover, P.C., in Atlanta and, subsequently in the firm’s Tifton, Georgia office. While at HBSS, P.C., Ron honed his litigation skills, defending medical malpractice and workers compensation claims. Along the way, Ron recognized un-met legal needs in his community and began taking on divorce clients and criminal defendants. Over time, it became clear that helping individuals through adversity was a calling Ron could not ignore.
Having engaged in military service since he first enlisted in the Alabama Army National Guard in 1985, Ron has answered the Nation’s call repeatedly since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He deployed to Afghanistan with the 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne) to Bagram, Afghanistan in 2002-2003. Ron commanded the 128th Medical Company (Ground Ambulance) in Baghdad, Iraq during 2004-2005. Most recently, he deployed with the 226th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade and served as the Command Judge Advocate for the Kabul Base Cluster in Kabul, Afghanistan from May, 2013 to January, 2014. Ron currently holds the rank: Lieutenant Colonel.
Ron and his wife, Julianne, made the decision to make Mobile their home in 2010, while Ron was assigned to work at Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He was admitted to the Alabama Bar in 2011. Coming off this last deployment, Ron recognized the opportunity to live out a dream of earning a living by helping people in need. He made the decision to form The Law Offices of Teague and McBay.
Ron has three children: William, Emile, and Molly. He knows the pain of divorce and the angst of a costly custody dispute. He knows how it feels to be overwhelmed by having to start over. When Ron advises clients, that advice is based on the law, his training and his experience as a husband and father. He understands that you are suffering. Suffer less. Call Ron.
