I initially interviewed 4 Tucson attorneys before making my decision on hiring an attorney to represent me. I needed a defense attorney after being charged with 9 felonies by a grand jury indictment. A few charges were possession of marijuana (12+lbs), marijuana manufacturing & distribution, intent to distribute, 2 weapons charges and child abuse. I immediately made a few phone calls and jumped on AVVO. I was referred to Mr. Chase by a friend who had hired Mr. Chase in a marijuana DUI case.
After I met with the 4 lawyers I had decided to interview and consult with, I went home and wrote out a pros and cons list of each one. I then took a few minutes to analyze what my gut was telling me. In both analyzations, Mr. Chase came out on top.
In the interview he was both thorough and detailed in expressing my options. He explained what his approach would be. He took detailed notes as we talked. He listened to what I was saying and of what I was asking. He answered all of my questions with solid and knowledgeable answers off the top of his brain. I asked all 4 attorneys the same questions. Mr. Chase knew the answers, without having to pause to look it up, which isn't true of the other 3 lawyers.
Mr. Chase was exceptionally timely in all correspondence and communication. He did all of the communicating himself, not somebody else. There was not one unexpected hiccup along the way. Mr. Chase utilized all the resources available to him on my behalf, such as using the courts finances (saving me a substantial chunk of money) to hire an independent investigator (a neutral party and certified by the courts) to conduct several action items that were pertinent to the outcome of the case.
He had an extreme knowledge of the inner workings of the court house and a VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL: He had solid relationships with the Judge and his staff inc. Interns & the Judges Clerk. This proved to be most beneficial about halfway through my case. As far as dealing with the prosecutor, Mr. Chase was keenly astute as to timing of certain issues and when to address those issues.
Mr. Chase always kept me apprised as details and information trickled in. He communicated in terms I could comprehend, not in lawyer-speak. He always gave me a reason as to why he was doing what he was doing and explained the benefit to me. He was very au courant and anticipatory of the next steps to make, quite frequently he was 2 or 3 steps ahead of where we were in negotiations. He was always well prepared and supraliminal of the process and resources that were available. My case took 10 months with about a dozen court appearances before wrapping up.
The bottom line is that I did do a lot of what I was being charged with. It took me a while to accept that fact and come out from under the denial rock. But at the end of the day, the 9 felonies I was charged with (comprised of class 2, class 3, class 4 & class 6 felony charges) had a 3.5 year up to 7 year potential for jail time on most of the charges. To complicate things, I had a prior felony conviction dated 19 years earlier that came in to play that Mr. Chase had to overcome. I ended up pleading guilty to 2 charges (a class 4 &class 6). Mr. Chase got the other 7 dismissed. The 12+lbs he got reduced to

Brian represented my husband and me in an usual ADA suit regarding our service dog, a case other lawyers were reluctant to tackle. Brian was the best---explaining each step, staying calm and focused and caring for us throughout the ordeal. Most importantly, he persisted and won the case. I can highly recommend Brian.

Brian is the best. He took charge & got me the amount that I deserved. He is calm & takes charge. He knows the law & makes it work for his client. Thanks Brian.

I've recommended Mr. Chase as a fellow attorney, but I also have have the opportunity to endorse him as a former client. When my best friend was rear ended by a careless driver, my very first phone call was to Mr. Chase. He gave us clear and simple steps to take in dealing with the driver's insurance company and the claims process and walked us through it all. I highly recommend Mr. Chase as your first call if you or someone you love is injured.

By far Brian is the most competent and compassionate representative for your rights and limits are always protected. I expect he will be an advocate for justice and certainly was beneficial to my personal needs to maintain my reputation was not tainted from making a mistake.

Was between a rock and a hard place with my dui. I'm thankful Brian was there to make sense of it all. He successfully Majority Of My Charges. Very satisfied with his services, will recommend him to any one looking for legal help.

Brian did an excellent job representing my case. He kept me well informed and explained everything to me. Whenever I had a question, he would take the time to make sure it was completely answered. He researched laws that I had no idea even existed. He knew exactly what my rights were and he did not allow the prosecution to take advantage of me. Brian went over all of my options and I received the best possible outcome. Brian will look at every aspect of your case and come up with the best game plan. I know many lawyers tell their clients just to take the plea without even looking at the facts. Brian will truly defend you. The state will press charges against you that can destroy your life, just based on a police officers opinion. You want to make sure you are represented by the best, and speaking from experience, I feel that Brian is hands down one of the best.

I consulted with Brian a few years ago when I was having difficulty dealing with an insurance claim, since he knows a lot about insurance issues as a personal injury lawyer. He gave me all the information necessary for me to handle the matter on my own-- at no charge, since it turned out to be a far simpler matter than expected (that didn't require legal intervention). I recommend him to everyone, and I know several people I have referred have also received the same excellent service. If it's something you can do on your own without shelling out money for a lawyer, he'll tell you.

Brian is hands down one of the best litigators in Tucson and is a rising star in the legal community. I've known him since law school, where I watched him compete in trial advocacy competitions and win at nearly every level. I highly recommend him.
