My husband was recently in rear end collision where he was not at fault and I contacted Chad today to see how we should proceed. Chad immediately contacted me and spoke with me at length about my options. Honestly he was warm, friendly, professional and gave me some wonderful recommendations. Although he will not be handling our case, ( I so wish he were ) he still took a great deal of time to offer advice and make a recommendation of a attorney who would be able to. He is the type of attorney that everyone would want handling their case. I would not hesitate to use Chad in the future for any larger cases that may arise that he would be able to take. I will be recommending him to any friends or family that may need a PI attorney. Thankyou Chad, for relieving some of my anxiety and for your time! :)Shannonread more

My 16 yr old son got into a car accident and I was very lost with all the insurance questions and what to do with it. I am so impressed with Chad. He is amazing and very down to earth. He is a genuinely good person who does not take advantage of people or their situation. He is very helpful!! He is honest and has a lot of integrity. I know this because he advised me that it wouldn’t be worth the money to hire him because I would be losing out of more money in the end with the case that I had. He has even entertained other questions that I had with no hesitation. Thank you for all your help and all the work that you do and your good heart. My son and I appreciate you! – Carolineread more

Chad was beyond helpful after I got hit by a car on my motorcycle in Nov. Without him I know I would’ve walked away with bills instead of money in my pocket after the settlement. What’s more, he was trustworthy and genuinely wanted to be sure I made out alright. I expected to have to watch any lawyer I hired with a microscope, but it wasn’t that way at all. Anf unlike other lawyers I spoke with, he actually takes his cut AFTER medical bills have been paid. Not before, assuming they’ll knock off a percentage. I couldn’t recommend him more.read more

Chad always kept us informed with every step with a personal phone call. He was a pleasure to work with and was able to get us more than we expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney for an accident. He said our case was “in his wheelhouse “! And he proved it! Thank you, Chad!

Chad and his staff are wonderful. My husband was in a car accident last year and we are so Happy we found Chad. He is very friendly, down to earth and always was available when needed. The whole process went smoothly and with some patience as these things take we were extremely satisfied with the outcome. Ashley & Ilan Raz.

I got into a serious not at-fault motorcycle accident in the beginning of May. I broke a few bones in my wrist, concussion, etc. I didn’t have health insurance because I had forgot to enroll with my employer this last period. My medical bills were crazy expensive; I had to get surgery on my wrist and had NO health insurance mind you. The guy who hit me had the bare minimum liability coverage, so Chad had very little to work with in my case. He nevertheless took it on, he laid out my options with clarity and precision. He told me exactly what he would do in every scenario, and just overall put me at ease with his excellent communication and calm demeanor. Every time I had a question or concern, I emailed Chad (I try not to bother busy lawyers with tedious phone calls) and his response was always lightning quick. Things took awhile, (patience is key!) as they usually do in these cases but the end result was unbelievably satisfying. Chad got me a pretty good sized settlement, and was able to negotiate my massive hospital bill down! I could not be more grateful to Chad and his staff. Stephanie and Natalie were great. I will most certainly be using them again if ever needed. If you want an attorney who will be up front with you, truthful, caring, and efficient, Chad Stavley is your guy! Thank you Chad, Stephanie, and Natalie!read more

Chad was absolutely awesome and I will recommend him to anyone I know that needs an attorney for personal injury. I will also call him again anytime I need a personal injury attorney. He was honest and kept things real with me. I also felt he actually cared about what I went through. He handled the case quicker then I thought and definitely got me a very fair amount for my case. I could email or call anytime I needed. He also took a friend of mines case which I found out about after I retained him for my case and my friend was very happy as well with his outcome. Thank you so much Chad for all you did with my case.read more

First I want to thank Chad for all he did for me. I would highly recommend Chad to anyone looking for an attorney for a personal injury case. I was involved in a serious car accident December 2017. When the bills started pouring in was when I decided I needed an attorney. So glad Chad was the attorney recommended for me. Met with Chad in February 2018 and he has been representing me since then. He made everything so easy on me. Summer 2018 we filed for a trial that was later scheduled for June 2019. Chad and his staff (Stephanie) always kept me in the loop of what was going on via email and/or phone, and always explained things so I understood what was happening. About 3 weeks before trial date, in May 2019 the defendant(s) asked for mediation. Chad was able to get a settlement for me without going to trial. Such a relief it’s all over and no trial. So thankful for everything that was done for me by Chad and his office. Again, I highly recommend Chad to anyone needing an attorney specializing in personal injury. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Chad if I ever needed his help again. Special thanks to you Chad. Lindaread more

My wife was involved in a traffic accident and sustained a minor injury. The other driver’s insurance company “determined” it was 50% my wife’s fault even after providing them with proof that their insured driver caused the accident. Within two weeks of Chad taking our case, the other insurance company agreed to pay 100% of the damages. Chad’s expertise in dealing with insurance companies is outstanding. Chad definitely got the result we had hoped for in a timely manner. We will be hiring Chad for all of our future legal needs.read more

My wife was injured in a car crash and not at fault. The insurance company was less than responsive and didn’t communicate or negotiate with us at all. I knew Chad from when he was a prosecutor at Multnomah County and so I called him for advice. Chad was amazing. From the initial consultation to the final settlement he was always there to answer questions and keep us informed. Chad was able to negotiate us a settlement that was drastically better than what the insurance company had offered initially. Chad has tremendous ethical and moral character and is well respected in the industry. I would highly recommend him.read more

Chad and his team helped me navigate an uninsured driver/bicycling injury. While I spoke to other attorneys; I felt Chad was the most personable. I also feel that hiring Chad was a wonderful choice because he was able to explain the process, his paralegals reached out regularly to keep me looped in, and the settlement wrapped rather quickly. I’d recommend hiring him to anyone whom wants a trustworthy representative, and a pleasant experience with excellent results.read more

Chad and his staff where great!I worked with Chad for almost three years through a personal injury case. From our first meeting till the very end I knew that he had my best interested in mind. He kept me informed through out the entire process and took the time to explain every step and matter of the case to me and in a way that I could understand as these cases can get confusing and overwhelming. Not only did he handle my case very well but he went above and beyond several times to do things that were not required or expected, to makes things better or easier for me. He is not just a great attorney but also just genuinely a good person. He is an advocate for his clients and empathetic to what one has just gone through during a traumatic injury. You could only benefit by having Chad by your side during a situation like this.read more

Chad took my case after I was in a severe car accident in which an impaired driver with no insurance was at fault. After a year of Chad working on my case, he was able to not only significantly reduce my medical bills, but as a result, was able to get some settlementment money for me. He was always great about staying in contact and I never felt rushed. Chad took the time to explain the case clearly and was even complimented by the D.A. office handling the criminal side of the accident. After everything was settled, he waived his fees, leaving me with a bit more money than I had originally thought.read more

After being rear ended by an impaired driver that left the scene, I contacted Chad Stavley because of his reputation for doing the right thing for the right reasons when he was a Deputy District Attorney with Multnomah County. Not only did he make the personal injury and damage portion of the collision simple, Chad also very quickly understood that I hoped for an outcome that was fair and reasonable for the person that hit me. Because of his prior experience and background, he was able to easily navigate the criminal aspect of this case with a resolution that held the driver accountable in a meaningful way, made me feel as if my input truly mattered, and most importantly, identified and acknowledged community stakeholders affected by impaired drivers.I cannot imagine navigating this sometimes very unpleasant process with another attorney. It is Chad’s integrity and sincere compassion that guided and positively impacted this process for me and everyone else involved. I will recommend Chad Stavley to everyone I know.read more

I have to thank Chad for his time and compassion when working with my Mom and l.When I initially called Chad I was full of fear and anger about the wreck and how my civil case was being handled. My former attorney had just notified me, by mail, that he couldn’t do anything for me, and to come pick up the paperwork.Chad listened and talked with Me. Giving him hope and a path forward. This is what I needed at this very low point in my life.Chad met with Mom and I in person, later emailing us detailed instructions. Which we followed. He provided support and was available when we got stuck and had questions. Chad’s help and support have been invaluable to our family. And has help put closure to this catastrophic event in my life.I high recommend Chad.read more

Chad is the real deal, truly out to help the less powerful and not in it just for a paycheck. Heres proof: I called him because my insurance adjuster was BS’ing me around with medical coverage, telling me I wasn’t eligible. Chad went out of his way to three way call my insurance company with me, talk to the adjuster, and voila! Now i have medical coverage and I can get my back fixed. The best part? He didn’t charge me a dime! He did it out of the kindness of his heart for somebody of lower status. Call it 100% magnanimous. If you’re looking for a personal injury attorney, Mr. Stavley is your guy.read more

MetLife made us a low offer under the uninsured/under-insured coverage of my policy for a personal injury car accident that my son was in. Chad took on the case based only on what he could get beyond the original offer and won an arbitrated settlement equal to double what MetLife had offered us. Insurance companies beware!

I was referred to Chad and he even came out to see me in Eugene from Portland. Our first discussion wasn’t about any legal actions but how I was healing from the accident. Chad actually cares about his clients and will make sure you’re taken cared off. He makes sure he is prepared for his cases and always is in communication with me. He even calls to see how I am doing or if I needed anything. He made my lawsuit really easy to handle. He will give you the best result one can ask for. Very easy and cool to work with.

I was rear-ended back in October of 2014 and the injuries from which temporarily derailed the beginning of my new career. The losses were beyond a financial price tag. My insurance covered all of my medical expenses and the replacement of my car but the driver of the car that hit me was uninsured. Luckily I had the proper coverage but the final PIP settlement offer didn’t come until April and I felt it was in-sufficient. Chad Stavley was recommended to me by lawyers in the family that didn’t deal with this type of thing and he came through like a champ. I could not be more thrilled with the final outcome. I highly recommend calling him with any questions or concerns.read more

After being in an auto accident that injured my wife, we knew we had to hire an attorney to help us with this new, unfamiliar territory. We obtained council from another law firm and had a terrible experience. We were treated like just a number and had a hard time even getting a response to email. We decided to fire that attorney and hire Chad, which turned out to be one of the best decisions we have ever made. Chad gave us faith in lawyers once again with his personal attention and willingness to go the extra mile when it came to our case. Chad would talk to us every time we called and would answer every email that we sent almost immediately. He made my wife feel like she mattered to him, which was truly amazing. He made a bad situation turn into something bearable and gave us that light at the end of the tunnel. We are forever grateful for the services that Chad provided us and would recommend him to anybody that is in need of a personal injury attorney.read more

My name is Martin Lund and I chose Chad Stavley as my attorney after review testimony’s online related to what I had experienced. I was hit on a motorcycle while stopped in a parking lot. Long story short, I suffer from a herniating disc that causes aching and numbing down my left arm. After meeting with Chad, he assisted me in getting my medical treatments moving forwards and worked with doctors clinics to allow me examinations since my PIP insurance had maxed out. Once the case has closed, Chad was able to settle out of court and with a larger than expected settlement.As other reviewers have stated, Chad is very professional and efficient. He did a great job in representing my case and explained what to expect as the case moved forward.If you are needing legal representation for a motor vehicle injury, I highly recommend Chad Stavley.read more

In August of 2012, I sustained injuries in a motor vehicle accident. I immediately began to feel disheartened and frustrating in dealing with the insurance companies (both my own and the other party’s). Even though I was rear-ended, the other party’s insurance company would not accept fault for the accident. I hired Chad Stavley and was immediately put at ease. Not only did he deal with all of the insurance information I did not understand, he also fought for me to be able to receive compensation for my physical injuries as well as my property damage. It felt really great to have an attorney like Chad in my corner; he worked efficiently and quickly, and he also made it as easy for me as possible to deal with an otherwise messy situation. I commend his professionalism as well as making me feel like I was well cared for as his client. I would absolutely recommend Chad Stavley for any person looking for an attorney who will help deal with an accident efficiently, professionally, and thoroughly.read more

I’ve worked with lawyers in the past that are unmotivated and fail to realize how important your case is to your daily life. I can tell you this is not the case with Chad. He is compassionate, responsive and fired up to get the best result. I could not be happier with the outcome in my case.read more

My name is Felix Velazquez, I recommend Chad Stavley for your next or first court case. A little more than a year ago I was accused of Domestic Violence charges. This was my first time dealing with anything that had to do with court related issues. I had no idea what to expect, what I did know was that I was stressed out and confused. I did not know what direction to take and how to approach the situation. Innocent or guilty, you need someone you can trust.A close friend attending a catholic university gave me as contact Chad Stavley. I was skeptical at first if he could help me out because Domestic Violence is not his major focus. He made it easy from the beginning, taking me step by step, in a friendly way. He made himself available when I needed him or had any questions outside of the office.In few words he made my court experience better than I expected. I am happy to say that thanks to Chad, my case has been expunged and dismissed. I recommend someone like Chad because he is down to earth, honest, humble, easy to talk to, gave me a fair price and his availability was exceptional.Thank you Chad for all your hard work,Best Regards,Felix V.read more
