When you need a winner, he is your guy...
In September of 2014 I suffered a career ending injury at BNSF Railway. The RR choose to not do the right thing even though I continued to have faith in them. I talked to Jeff on a recommendation of a friend after many broken promises by BNSF. I had only done one thing wrong that night, and that was trusting BNSF to accurately train, and prepare a operator to safely work along side me. I talked with Jeff and he helped ease my mind and finally realize that the RR was not conducting themselves i my best interest or livelihood. My injuries physically were were permanent and the PTSD was overwhelming and learning to deal with it was life altering. Jeff worked tirelessly for me and my future well-being. He fought them like David and Goliath and we won. Due to his tireless work and knowledge of law and his belief in me when I sometimes didn't believe in the end. The RR may think they are a gaint, but they have definitely met their Goliath in his knowledge, strategy and ability to try a case. I was almost ready to settle, and am so glad I didn't and chose to go with Jeff. My life is much better, and I can live my new life without worries. Thank you Jeff, I highly recommend him as he is the best...

Railroad Incident
I hired Mr. Chod after I had an incident at a mine here in Wyoming when I worked for the Union Pacific Railroad and he did an excellent job of settling my case. Mr. Chod worked well with myself and the doctors he talked to and other railroad employees.

Wisconsin MOW Railroad Employee Injury
As a former MOW employee for Wisconsin Central Railroad in need of an injury attorney, it has been my experience that good FELA attorneys are hard to find. After having to fire my first attorney due to a very frustrating experience, I found Atty. Chod and from that point on, my experience was nothing short of outstanding. Jeff treated me personally with compassion as if I were his only client and understood completely the seriousness of my injury. He fought a very long and tough battle against a team of very high powered attorneys with due diligence. Jeff’s wealth of knowledge, professionalism and overall personality prevailed and I am now able to live life with my serious disablement knowing that there could not have been a better outcome. And Jeff has kept in touch with me since the closure of my case just to see how I am doing. Honestly, I don’t think I could have found a better attorney. With the confidence that I have in Atty. Jeff Chod’s abilities to triumph in very difficult injury cases, I highly, highly recommend this man, and no one else. He WILL treat you and your case with the utmost of importance! Todd Wausau, WI

Great Lawyer!
Jeff Chod was my lawyer in a suit against MRL in Missoula Montana. He distinguished himself in a very professional manner. His hard work, extensive knowledge and attention to detail enabled me to get a satisfactory settlement. He was easily accessible and quickly attended to all my questions and worries. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone due to his work ethic and willingness to go that extra mile to insure his client gets the best possible results.
