Very Knowledgeable Attorney
Brian Chase was fantastic in handling my auto defect case. It was an airbag that failed to deploy and he spared no money or time in getting the best experts to prove my case. He's a very compassionate lawyer, too!

Legislative Action
It's cases like my automobile accident and serious flaws in the auto industry that motivates Brian Chase. He is an incredible attorney and once hired he is completely devoted. He gets the winning verdict in the individual case, then he gets the laws and regulations changed to protect others!

Premier Attorney

His superior knowledge of both the law and automotive defects combined with his easy-going and charismatic manner make him not only appealing to clients, but also respected and valued by opposing counsel, judges, and all those who work for and with him.
