"Whether it's a misdemeanor or a felony, a criminal charge is a life-changing experience for many. Depending on how a case is handled, a criminal charge may seriously affect the ability to find a good job. On the other hand, a criminal charge may bring about serious jail time. I'm passionate about bringing my client through this stressful time and resolving the case to get the results he or she deserves. If we were all defined by one moment in time of poor judgment, with no hope for redemption, we'd all be in a lot of trouble."
"Letting my clients know that their heavy burden has now become my own - they can relax now."
"I remember on day in college I was accused of stealing gas. On a hot summer afternoon I stopped by a gas station to buy a Gatorade. As I left, a police officer caught up with me down the road and said I was a suspect for stealing gas. Back at the store, a clerk said she saw me pull up to a pump, retrieve $5 worth of gas, and drive off without paying. I pleaded my case but no one would listen. At that moment, I realized that no matter what I said, there was nothing I could say to convince the officer and store clerk that I was innocent of stealing. By this time, several fellow students had observed the commotion and I was humiliated.
Thankfully, video surveillance that day confirmed that I had not stolen gas at all. In fact, it was a person who did not look like me, in a different vehicle, at a time when I was not even there. I learned first-hand that anyone can be wrongfully accused of a crime. I also learned that eye witness testimony is the least credible of all the five senses.
The problem with this scenario is that it happens every day, but most people do not have the benefit of things like video surveillance. Every story has two sides -- both deserve to be told."
"There are some things you can teach, and there are other things you simply can't. I've always found my success to be driven by hard work and the ability to relate to anyone."
Chase and his church have made regular visits to Honduras for different purposes. The attached picture was taken in a small mountain town called San Marcos de Colón, just south of Choluteca, Honduras. Chase and his team were handing out Christmas gifts this particular visit. At the end of the day, Chase has either lived in or visited in most countries all over Cental and South America, and has a heart and genuine understanding for the people who call him "abogado".
