Steve Chanley has been my attorney for over 10 years. From our initial meeting I felt a great deal of confidence and trust in Steve. While over the years he has advised me on many human resource issues, his most significant work with me was defending my company in a large wage-hour class action suit. He worked closely with me for months and ultimately traveled to San Francisco to represent me. Steve settled the case ethically and professionally.
I have enormous respect for Steve Chanley and I have never doubted his advice or counsel. He listens attentively and gains a clear understanding of every issue we have discussed. Based on his experience and knowledge he is always concise in his practices and his responses to me have always been timely and thorough.
I highly recommend Steve Chanley for legal counsel on employment and human resource matters.

I have worked with Steve since 2002 and I can't say enough good things about him . He represented me in a trade secret case filed in Superior Court against a company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. At the time I did not think there was much hope but Steve successfully opposed every motion the opposing attorney filed in the case. He had the opposing attorney on his heels the whole time and was able to achieve a very favorable outcome.

I am an independent contractor working as the Controller for small business manufacturing company. In this capacity I frequently have human resource issues come my way. It is never pleasant to need legal help but when this company found itself the target of serious employment allegations I was incredibly grateful they hired Steven Chanley to represent them. I was heavily involved in the process and found Mr. Chanley to be extremely knowledgeable in employment law and very personable to work with. (He even has a sense of humor!) The outcome was better than the Company could have hoped for due to Steven's expertise and experience. The Company now engages him ongoing to head off any potential issues it identifies and to strengthen it's policies. It is not an understatement to say that my client Company would have suffered greatly without Mr. Chanley's support and guidance.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have had Steve as opposing counsel a number of times. He is a strong but fair advocate for his employer clients. I have referred a number of employers to Steve and will do so in the future. He is clearly the best employment law attorney in San Luis Obispo County.
