Chance became an attorney to help people in need. After working for multiple law firms and handling a variety of cases, Chance found his passion working on personal injury cases and fighting for those who deserve compensation.
Chance graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Communication Studies and an emphasis in negotiations. He went on to earn his J.D. from the University of Oregon School of Law near the top of his class. While in law school, Chance honed his negotiation skills. He also excelled in legal writing and worked as a tutor in the school’s top-ranked writing program. He finished his degree by working with Judge Karsten Rasmussen, the Presiding Judge of the Lane County Circuit Court. This experience allowed Chance to obtain a unique insight into how a judge and jury view and handle personal injury cases.
Chance’s studies, volunteer, and work experience prepared him for a career negotiating with insurance companies on behalf of injured clients. And when insurance companies refuse to negotiate fairly, Chance will confidently litigate in both State and Federal Court.
When Chance is not negotiating, he is spending time with his wife Carly, their two children Calvin and Ollie, and their dog Owen. Chance loves to fish, swim in the ocean, boat, and anything else involving water. He loves going to Diamondback games with his family and hopes his son will love the water and sports as much as he does. Chance volunteers frequently for his church and his community and believes that serving others is the best way to perpetuate change.
