"I specifically went to law school to become a personal injury trial attorney. It is what I love, what I do, and what I am." - Brian Chase.

One of Mr. Chase's proudest moments among many, was the victory he obtained representing a client that was seriously injured in an auto defects case that left her paralyzed.

Brian took on the auto industry and garnered a $24.7 million dollar victory for his client and secured medical care & financial security for the rest of her life. Here's Brian discussing the case with Fox News.
