About Chad

Learn Chad’s areas of practice.

Chad advises individual and business clients of their rights prior to and during a lawsuit, with an eye towards the financial impact and risks of litigation.

The Best Lawyer
Was very pleased with the results of my case. Was told up front if Mr Mooney would be able to accept the case or not. I drive truck so a lot of my interaction with him was mobile calls he was very professional and thorough with his advice and work. Was not given a dream he was very direct and up front with what we were fighting against and he went above and beyond what he said or promised he would do.

Professional and smooth
Chad Mooney handled my case professionally and was a delight to work with from start to finish. He made me feel as comfortable as family, helped me keep organized and was detail oriented to the highest degree. I never felt overwhelmed with decisions at any point and while I was busy going back to school in the midst of this Pandemic, I was confident knowing he was handling the busy work and keeping track of insurance, medical expenses records, and providers while I was able to make peace with a pretty frightening experience. Mr. Mooney was sure to keep me in the loop and up to date at every move. I’m grateful for choosing PLDR to help navigate through a challenging time. No one should have to suffer alone as long as we have good folks like this on our side.

Professional, prompt, knowledgeable, attentive
Mr.Mooney was hired to represent our business, and we couldn’t be happier when he did a terrific job helping us sail through it. Upon meeting him and spoke to him I can see how highly he value his work ethnic. Mr.Mooney showing his professionalism through his knowledges and appearances. He can be very understandable but also can be very reasonably aggressive when protected his client’s right.

An Attorney Who Cares and Listens
I am rarely a woman of few words but, my amazing experience with Chad Mooney has left me somewhat speechless. I now know that there are still good lawyers in the world and they are winning even in 2020. I called Chad from Georgia in desperate need of an attorney. He listened with patience and empathy and agreed to take my case. Throughout the whole process he showed integrity, transparency and awesome customer service. I never had to doubt rather or not I was in good hands. Everything Chad said he would do, he did just that and there was never any smoke and mirrors. The settlement outcome exceeded my expectations/ I am assured it was awarded due to Chad's legal expertise and respect for his community, as well as respect for his clients. I can not thank him enough for taking the time to see me as a person and not just another case.

Personal injury case
I normally don’t write reviews but I felt incline to do so, I was in a bad accident about three years ago, which left me in a bad position..dealing with insurance companies can be stressful, anyway hired Mr. Mooney who is patient, strategic, and very knowledgeable about the business practices, in which he was able to secure a 6 digit settlement in my case..I would recommend Mr. Mooney for your personal injury needs or any law related issues and I would most definitely send all my family and friends to Mr. Mooney...

A Happy Client
I was very pleased with the services provided by Mr. Mooney. He was very professional and I actually felt like he truly cared about me and my situation. He took time with me to go over the litigation process and made sure that I understood everything he was explaining to me. Because of the nature of my case, he referred me to another attorney who he thought would better suit my needs. Even when my case was moved to another jurisdiction, he kept in contact with me to see how things were going. I highly recommend Mr. Mooney!!

Real Estate Case
Chad representation was great and I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case. Chad returned phone calls and emails in a timely fashion. I met Chad at a Amherst County Chamber of Commerce event. When it came time to choose a lawyer for my case I remembered how easy it was to talk and communicate with Chad at our first meeting.

My automobile damage.
I hired attornew Chad Mooney to take up my case that involved another driver damaging my vehicle. Mr Mooney took the time to hear the details , and after looking at the situation and pictures and reviewing all the facts , he approached the insurance company while keeping in touch with me as to where he was in the negotiations. After a few months i was notified of the progress and settlement was in sight . Thank you mr Chad Mooney for your understanding and for your firm stand as well as for your kindness.

Auto Accident
I was in an auto accident and received extensive injuries to my back. I consulted with Chad Mooney and he really care about me and my case. During this painful time in my life, I not only hired a lawyer but gained a friend. Chad went above and beyond not only as a lawyer, but as a friend, to make sure I received enough compensation to proceed with my life, even through I will continue to live in chronic pain. Thank you Chad for all you have done to help me! I would highly recommend him and his firm for your legal needs.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
In what was a very anxious and emotional time it was a huge stress reliever to have an attorney like Chad Mooney! From the very start Chad was very empathetic and answered every question and or concern I had. During the process he kept me updated as to how the case was progressing and was always available for questions during that process. With what I can only imagine must be a very hectic schedule with clients and court, Chad's response time to phone calls and or emails was always very prompt. Through the entire process he was very informative , supportive and professional. I would highly recommend Chad Mooney to anyone in need of an attorney!
