“We hired Steve to negotiate and resolve a contract/labor dispute with a portfolio company. Steve was very responsive, listened well, and provided sound, practical counsel. His ability to de-escalate situations with the opposing party was one of the most valuable aspects of his help. This was a situation that involved several legal parties. Steve was able to work well with both our legal teams and the other company's legal teams. The contracts Steve wrote were concise, efficient, and foresightful. We would not hesitate to hire Steve again if such a need arose for us.”


“I highly recommend Steve Chanley for legal counsel…”

“Steve Chanley has been my attorney for over 10 years. From our initial meeting I felt a great deal of confidence and trust in Steve. While over the years he has advised me on many human resource issues, his most significant work with me was defending my company in a large wage-hour class action suit. He worked closely with me for months and ultimately traveled to San Francisco to represent me. Steve settled the case ethically and professionally. I have enormous respect for Steve Chanley and I have never doubted his advice or counsel. He listens attentively and gains a clear understanding of every issue we have discussed. Based on his experience and knowledge he is always concise in his practices and his responses to me have always been timely and thorough. I highly recommend Steve Chanley for legal counsel on employment and human resource matters.”


“I recommend Steve Chanley”

“I have worked with Steve since 2002 and I can't say enough good things about him . He represented me in a trade secret case filed in Superior Court against a company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. At the time I did not think there was much hope but Steve successfully opposed every motion the opposing attorney filed in the case. He had the opposing attorney on his heels the whole time and was able to achieve a very favorable outcome.”



“I have utilized Steve Chanley's services occasionally over the last 20+ years. His expertise and willingness to assist me have helped me through the anxiety of employee claims. He sees through the bs and guides me to a resolution. He is knowledgable, supportive, and gives advise in a timely way which can keep a situation from escalating. I highly recommend his services if you are in the unfortunate situation to require his expert skills.”


“If you have to hire an attorney…he’s the one!”

“I am an independent contractor working as the Controller for small business manufacturing company. In this capacity I frequently have human resource issues come my way. It is never pleasant to need legal help but when this company found itself the target of serious employment allegations I was incredibly grateful they hired Steven Chanley to represent them. I was heavily involved in the process and found Mr. Chanley to be extremely knowledgeable in employment law and very personable to work with. (He even has a sense of humor!) The outcome was better than the Company could have hoped for due to Steven's expertise and experience. The Company now engages him ongoing to head off any potential issues it identifies and to strengthen it's policies. It is not an understatement to say that my client Company would have suffered greatly without Mr. Chanley's support and guidance.”


“Not Your Typical Attorney!”

“I am the President and co-owner of an Aerospace Corporation. I hired Mr. Chanley to represent the Corporation against a class action claim with the EEOC (total of 9 claims). l was extremely impressed with Mr. Chanley communication ability, responsiveness, attention to detail, competency, and professionalism. From the inception to resolution of my legal cases, Mr. Chanley took the lead in every little detail of the cases (preparation of interview/investigation questioners to meeting out of state with federal investigators). Mr. Chanley kept me always informed and I was extremely pleased with his results. Mr. Chanley is a very intelligent professional attorney. He continues to provide me with great insight on a wide variety of legal matters and has helped guide me in the right direction. I would highly, without hesitation, recommend hiring Mr. Chanley for all your employer legal matters.”
