Chance is a true trial lawyer with hands-on experience at every stage of pre-litigation, litigation, trial, and appeals. His dedication to vigorously representing his clients led to his qualification and designation as Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Out of 110,000 lawyers licensed to practice in Texas, less than 7,000 have achieved this designation.
Chance is a trial lawyer who backs up his accolades with record-setting courtroom victories. In 2019 alone, he obtained an eight-figure verdict in a medical malpractice case that was the largest such verdict in Texas that year. In the same year, he also secured two six-figure verdicts in motor vehicle accident trials and one six-figure verdict in an insurance case. Chance is also heavily involved in the Watson Grinding plant explosion that led to the deaths of three individuals in January 2020.
Chance is a member of many professional associations and community groups. Some of his positions have included: serving on the Continuing Legal Education Committee for the Houston Bar Association, serving on the Editorial Board for Houston Lawyer magazine, membership in the Garland R. Walker American Inn of Court, and membership on the Board of Advocates with the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
In addition to his legal accolades and professional involvement, Chance serves the community by volunteering with the American Heart Association, M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), and the University of St. Thomas. Chance is happily married to his fellow lawyer wife, and they are the proud parents of two young children.
