Chase Hardy is a Texan through and through.
Ingrained in him is the belief that fortune follows the bold. The courageous that are willing face their oppressor and fight for what’s right. Courage from the client. Courage in the courtroom. Chase always fights to win.
Chase understands that a journey through our judicial system can be intimidating. The fear of the unknown can creep into every crevice of a person’s life. This is why Chase has dedicated his life to understanding the intricate and nuanced workings of the court— and of the law.
