Chelsea L. James
Chelsea was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania. She attended Louisiana State University, where she received a BA in History and Political Science with a minor in German. Chelsea earned her Juris Doctorate from Florida Coastal School of Law, with certificates in Civil Litigation, Legal Research, Writing, and Drafting, as well as, Government and Public Interest Law. She was a National Moot Court Champion and received numerous awards for advocacy, writing, and pro bono work.
Chelsea developed an interest in personal injury law while working for a Law Firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Chelsea finds personal injury law personally fulfilling and enjoys working with clients. She gets to help clients who come to us after an accident, that are typically confused, concerned, and have no idea what the next step is. Chelsea enjoys being able to assist clients by explaining the process and taking the burden from the client in regard to worrying about their claim. Chelsea’s main goal is for the client to only worry about going to the doctor and focusing on getting better.
When someone undergoes something so drastic like near death experience your mind is everywhere you don't know what to do or where to turn. I was thankful to have my dad suggest that I seek legal help from Schackow & Mercadante. Gerald & Michelle treated me like family they didn't look at me as a dollar sign they displayed acts of genuine compassion and concerns. I'm just blessed beyond belief to even have the pleasure of being a client that they represented. They even took the time and gave me advice after services that will help me throughout my journey in life. To top that off after the paperwork and completion of their job they did not shake my hand and say good luck instead they opened their warm and loving arms and gave me a sincere hug and wish nothing but the best for me!. Now that's the kind of team you would want to receive service from it gets no better than that! I wish I could rate 10 stars instead of 5! Thank You Guys So Much! This Review Doesn't Even Show A Third Of My Appreciation! I Am Forever Grateful!
