About me

I am a lifelong resident of Clark County, growing up in Camas, WA.  I decided that I wanted to be a lawyer in 8th grade, and made that dream a reality after graduating from Willamette University Law School in 2003.


I have extensive experience in criminal litigation as a defense attorney, prosecutor, and Pro Tem Judge.  I have prosecuted cases at one time or another for the cities of Battle Ground, Ridgefield, La Center, Camas, and Washougal.  I have been retained as Defense counsel for clients in all types of felony, misdemeanor, juvenile and traffic cases.  I currently serve as a Pro Tem Judge for the Clark County District Court. I have conducted a number of criminal trials, both as a defense attorney and prosecutor. 


I believe that my clients have a positive experience with me because I am diligent about returning phone calls, I update them regularly about the status of their case, and I genuinely care about them as people.

  • John Lehr Green

    I have known Chad for 11 years, going back to my days as a domestic violence prosecutor. Following our first interaction in court, I immediately recognized that he was a special attorney and worthy of my respect and admiration. Back then as is the case today, Chad has always been known for obtaining only the best results for those who hire him. His personal touch is extraordinarily effective not only with clients but with prosecutors, and judges alike. I unreservedly give Chad my highest recommendation.
