Lots of changes are afoot at the Chaney Law Firm. Last June, Don Chaney was a solo practitioner focusing his trial practice on personal injury, medical malpractice, and social security disability, all while serving as general counsel to various local and regional businesses. Don's wife, Terri, has been the office manager and bookkeeper since the inception of the firm almost a decade ago. In June, Don's older son Nathan and his daughter-in-law Hilary joined the firm after living in Fayetteville, Arkansas for five years.
Nathan is a registered patent attorney and trial lawyer whose practice involves coming up with conservative yet creative solutions to clients requiring counsel on new product design, technology licensing, infringement prosecution and defense, branding, trade secret protection, and other IP issues. He has extensive federal intellectual property litgation experience, which has brought a unique perspective to the firm's litigation practice. This fall, Nathan was elected Clark County Bar Association President.
Hilary, a former staff attorney for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, has practiced commercial litigation for the last several years. On making the move to our firm, Hilary has decided to focus on social security disability cases.
Then, in September, we learned that Don's younger son Taylor passed the Arkansas bar exam. We are excited for Taylor as he enters the profession.
The Chaney Law Firm has now become a family firm. We look forward to our family being able to help yours!
