Biography

Chelsea is an experienced and zealous litigator who, in her short career, has already performed well beyond her years. Prior to joining Kaiser Hafezi Law, she was the sole attorney at a local branch of a nationally recognized personal injury firm where she successfully managed a tremendous caseload and obtained millions of dollars for her clients.

Chelsea gravitated toward personal injury law because she is passionate about helping people in their hour of need. She advocates in and out of court to obtain fair and just compensation for her clients who have been injured due to the negligence of others. Chelsea works closely with her clients to understand their specific circumstances and to build the strongest case possible for each one.

Joining Kaiser Hafezi was a natural move for Chelsea because she demonstrates the firm's core values of compassion, knowledge, and persistence. Hitting the ground running, she immediately secured hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements and a six-figure jury verdict in DuPage County.

She enjoys musical theater, the performing arts, reading, and spending time with her family and friends.
