When Reputation Matters!
Legal malpractice and other professional liability claims arise when the conduct of a lawyer or other professional falls below the minimum standard of care required by law. We represent clients with valid claims against professionals, and we also represent defendant lawyers whose clients have filed claims against them. Read More.

Mr. Chandler represented me in a matter that has made me learn from certain mistakes I have made in my profession. During the entire representation Mr. Chandler never judged the decisions I had made, listened to all my concerns, and came up with a plan to resolve my problem. Needless to say, he represented me exceptionally well and got the best result possible in my situation. I highly recommend Mr. Chandler.
Chandler Law believed in my legal malpractice case and stood up to a big downtown Atlanta law firm to help my family recover against my former lawyer. We are so grateful for their help!

State Bar Grievance
Douglas, I cannot thank you and your team enough for your excellent work on my behalf. This has been quite a learning experience, and having seen the effort and expertise required to mount a favorable defense on this claim, I am grateful to have had your assistance every step of the way.
Mr. K, Attorney and Former Judge, Atlanta, GA
State Bar Grievance
I sought the advice of Douglas Chandler and Chandler Law after another lawyer filed a bar grievance against me to try to get me to pay money to his client for a real estate closing the lawyer said I had done incorrectly. Douglas listened to me, helped me report the matter to my malpractice carrier to get disciplinary coverage I didn’t even know I had, and responded to the bar complaint aggressively. Later, I was dragged into litigation between the buyer and seller of the property. Although not on my malpractice carrier’s panel of defense lawyers, my carrier hired Chandler Law on my behalf to also litigate the civil claims against me and my firm. Chandler Law aggressively handled our defense, and globally resolved the civil claims and disciplinary case confidentially. When your license to practice law and your professional reputation is on the line, we highly recommend Chandler Law for professional liability and state bar disciplinary defense.
