Excellent Consultation
Chad came to my attention highly recommended by another prominent attorney and I'm very grateful for it. Chad provided consultation for an employment termination problem and his excellent advice helped me successfully resolve my issue without having to go to litigation. The price of the consultation was very well spent. Although it was just a consultation, Chad took his time to understand my issue and was very responsive to my concerns and time frame. I highly recommend Chad.

A True Servant of the People
Chad took the time to review my case and provided me guidance on how to proceed. I really wish I could’ve used him but my issue happened out of state. The fact that he still took the time to check my evidence and laid a path out for me to follow shows just how much he wants to genuinely help people. I highly recommend that if you have a legal issue to seek him out. Thanks Chad for everything!!

Excellent, professional lawyer
We hired Chad to help with an eviction case and he was simply amazing. Very professional but also a person who was easy to talk to. He helped immensely with the case and we were able to reach a settlement that worked out for us. If it wasn’t for Chad, we would be in a far worse place. I can’t thank him enough for his help. This is the kind of lawyer you want on your side.
