Chaffin & Homan is the firm for underdogs, the trusty slingshot that helped David defeat Goliath. We have never shied away from a case no matter how large or powerful the opposition, because we know how to win. We fight for individuals, and we have a near 40-year track record with a 98% success rate to prove it.

We defeated Exxon for $8 million in the California Supreme Court, we beat the Louisiana State Fire Department when the first African-American fire captain was burned to death, and we recovered $16 million for families of five young men killed in a bicycle tragedy. In 2016, we won a $1,118,800 verdict for our client who fell and badly injured her shoulder on a cruise ship. These are just a few examples of our success. We’ve been consistently winning million-dollar cases since 1979 and we’re still doing it today.
