Stuart R. Chandler – Trial Lawyer
Stuart Chandler is proud to call the Central Valley his home. His roots in the Valley date back to the late 19th century when his great-grandfather, W.F. Chandler, started farming just south of Fresno. To this day Chandler Farms (now owned and operated by Bill and Carol Chandler) flourishes. Chandler Airport has served local aviators for over 70 years on land donated to the City by W.F. Chandler. Stuart lives in Fresno with his wife, son and daughter. He has served on the Boards of several local civic and ministerial associations.
Stuart graduated from Bullard High School in 1972. After that he went on to graduate from Claremont Men’s College (now Claremont McKenna College) with Honors in 1976. He then moved to Salem, Oregon to attend Willamette University College of Law. While in law school he won numerous moot court (appellate advocacy) competitions, including the State competition.
As a law student he worked for the Solicitor General’s Office of the Attorney General for the State of Oregon. Under special student appearance rules he was allowed to argue numerous cases before the Oregon Court of Appeal. To this day he maintains a license to practice law in the State of Oregon.
