    • I do not recommend Chad Golightly.
    • I hired Chad more than 3 years ago.
    • Chad handled my Personal Injury matter.

    In our case he never contacted the dr.'s and hospital that treated my wife at the time of the accident although he repeatedly promised to do so and LATER CLAIMED HE HAD done so. This negligence resulted in numerous liens and judgements appearing on our credit report that would not have been initiated had normal procedures been followed as promised and ok'd by us which was to give these suppliers a lien on the future settlement. Every one of the suppliers said they normally accept these arrangements and wait to be paid from settlement funds. Ask to see a record of how many cases he has actually taken to trial. No lawyer wants to end up in trial TOO OFTEN but NEVER ?Cold and uncaring . .

    • I hired Chad 1-3 years ago.
    • Chad handled my Personal Injury matter.

    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE experience! People please do your homework! I sure didn't. This is by far the worst lawfirm I have ever crossed paths with. They overpromise and under deliver. I was involved in a multiple car accident. Let me tell you, this lawyer is getting me peanuts for what my case is worth. I feel like this whole experience was a joke. It is taking them a lot longer to resolve my case then what they said. Nobody will bother calling you to update you on your case and when you call nobody ever seems to be available. After 3 voicemails and many calls one week later no one has returned my calls. I finally spoke to someone today which I told about my non returned voicemails and calls and she was so rude gave me the nastiest attitude and said "call you for what???!!!!!!" and went on about saying how they always log their voicemails and that there wasn't any under my file.(REALLY!!) how professional!. 7 months later it is still unclear about when I can put this all behind me. Do your research please!

    • I do not recommend Chad Golightly.
    • I hired Chad 1-3 years ago.
    • Chad handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.

    I was in a car accident on February 25, 2013, I had contacted Mr. Golightly to represent me. It has only been a nightmare. I was told my car would be fixed in a couple of weeks. It took them threw months to get my car fixed. I was giving a rental car for less than a month during those three months, and then had to pay one of the weeks for the car, almost $500, as the other insurance did not want to pay the extra week. It has been about 4 months and I have yet to see that money. It has now been three months and has gotten absolutely no where for the money of personal injuries. Him and including his attorneys have only been rude and unfriendly. They don't care for my case and never seem to know the facts of my case when I talk to them. The last time I spoke with one of his attorneys he gave me the option to look for a new attorney. What attorney does that? Don't waste your time calling him. It is only a bumpy road with lots of potholes and no end to the street.
