The Evolution of Chandler Law
At the start of his career, Stuart associated with a prominent Fresno insurance defense firm where he excelled in civil litigation. In 1985, Stuart decided to change the direction of his career in pursuit of his desire to advocate for Valley residents devastated by a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one.
So, with that goal in mind, Stuart said goodbye to the prominent law firm and the corporate insurance clients and hung his shingle outside a small office in Fresno. It was there he began representing clients victimized by serious motor vehicle collisions, pedestrian accidents and victims of medical malpractice.His expertise soon grew to include helping abused elderly residents receiving negligent care in nursing homes, insurance bad faith claims, and other negligent acts resulting in injury or harm.
Over the last three decades Stuart’s goal has successfully evolved into Chandler Law. A legal team comprised of caring and committed professionals with over 75 years of experience collectively.
