Knowledgeable, Professional, Efficient
Mr. Chase's legal expertise and connections in Klamath Falls are apparent upon the initial consultation. As an attorney myself (in a different state and practice area), I felt confident that he would be able to offer me sound legal advice in an efficient manner. Unfortunately, Mr. Chase was conflicted out of my matter, and I was unable to retain him (he helpfully offered referrals). When searching for a family law attorney, I recommend that you contact Mr. Chase for a consultation.

Superb Service
Cole used to be the Attorney General in his area and now it is in shambles since he has left. He is very knowledgeable in his area, and great to work with. He was unfortunately unable to help me gain any ground in my case (due to my circumstances, nothing to do with his efforts), so he graciously offered to refund my non-refundable retainer. Who does that?!? I would recommend him to anyone!

Response from Cole Chase August 6, 2015
Not exactly Tami. I was a deputy DA, and the office has changed a bunch since I've left. There are still great lawyers in the office, but the leadership has changed. The community is lucky to have these dedicated deputies, despite the challenges that they face. I'm glad that you were satisfied with the service, and I'm sorry that I was unable to help you.

Excellent Representation
Mr. Chase represented me in a matter in which I prevailed, because he has an extremely strong ability to show his professional expertise in legal representation with civil and criminal matters which may arise. He has the expertise in changing the outcome of a proceeding, where it would otherwise be difficult for a client to prevail without the effective assistance counsel, but in this case, Mr. Chase is MORE THAN EFFECTIVE. Additionally, his willingness to communicate with his me, and provide the kind of information that was necessary and proper, is of top notch standard. I most appreciate the fact that Mr. Chase is a former prosecuting attorney, so he has (among other things) that absolute knowledge and understanding in getting to the truth of a matter where a particular party might not be so keen on telling the truth. In the future, if necessary, I will have no reservations or second thoughts about contacting Mr. Chase again for any important legal matters which may arise.

A lawyer who cares.
We have worked with Cole Chase for many years. Running an equine rescue was made so much easier with this man on our side. He never failed to be there when we needed him, he is super honest and funny, steps up when the situation gets rocky and most important to us, he can be trusted. We recently had a need for something simple, our wills, and his advice and information made that job easy. Knowing he is there for us makes life a lot more comfortable. Highly recommended by our family.
