Real Estate

In his real estate practice, Chad has helped guide clients through foreclosure, short sales, deed in lieu negotiation, boundary line issues, title issues, contracts for deed, purchase agreement non-disclosure, and association liens/violations. There is often quite a bit of overlap with bankruptcy and real estate, so the fact that Chad has extensive experience in both is of great benefit to his clients.

Construction Law 

Chad works with contractors and homeowners embroiled in construction law disputes, often involving mechanic's liens. Placing himself in the shoes of his clients, Chad applies a creative problem-solving approach to efficiently bring resolution to property improvement disputes that can quickly grow very expensive.

One of The Best Decisions I Have Ever Made

"Hiring Chad on a per-hour basis to assist when and where I needed was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Had I tried to 'go it alone' in my arbitration situation (investment case/commodities), I would never have achieved the positive outcome realized plus, I would have been a complete mess the whole time. Thank goodness for super hero lawyers like Chad - he was a champion and hero in my life and I thank the good Lord that he was there when I needed someone. My guardian angel must have led me to this incredibly smart, savvy, caring and fair-minded lawyer. Anyone considering hiring a lawyer to either take control of an arbitration situation, or assist from the sidelines, should look no further than Chad Kelsch. (And I do not say these things lightly.) What a wonderful feeling to have prevailed when the tide was against me. I remain forever grateful for Chad's wise and extremely intelligent counsel. I was a winner, because Chad is a winner."

Completely Alleviated My Anxiety

"Usually legal issues can be very difficult and stressful. The people at the firm were very helpful and extremely professional in handling my case, and thereby completely alleviated my anxiety. I would not hesitate to refer them to anyone who has similar situations."

An Absolutely Awesome Attorney

"We first approached Chad to help us with a dispute with a concrete company. He asked a lot of questions about what was happening, took notes, looked thoroughly through all of our files. He was very clear and honest about what he thought. He gave us two options - a cheaper option where we would represent ourselves and he would coach us through the process, and another option where he would fully represent us. Both were flat rates - fantastic! We chose to have him represent us, and he was an absolutely awesome attorney. He kept on top of everything, great communication, had great ideas, and really made us feel confident and less stressed throughout the process. He kept on fighting for us even after the court case was finished, to make sure that the company took the lien off the property (which they were trying to keep on). And I have to say, his rates are more than fair. In our particular court case, we were able to see what the concrete company was paying for their attorney, and it was more than three times what we paid Chad! He’s a great attorney, and we would definitely retain him again!!"

So Lucky to Have Been Referred

"When we first contacted Chad we felt that we were in a very difficult, complicated and desperate situation. After assessing our situation, he was able to quickly assure us that the current, as well as upcoming difficulties could be handled, he knew just what to do, and we could land on our feet! He was there for us in an incredibly responsive way, and been amazing! We feel so lucky to have been referred to him. If you are in trouble and wish that you had someone that would care for your situation, and help you as if you had an attorney for a family member, give him a call!"

Do Not Hesitate to Consult with Chad Kelsch

"I met Chad through our chamber of commerce and got to know him through mutual referrals. I have never had a potential client that I referred to someone else actually, thank me for the great referral. I refer anyone who comes to me for bankruptcy advice to Chad and I have never been let down. If you ever have any questions about bankruptcy, please do not hesitate to consult with Chad Kelsch first."

Professionalism, Sincerity, and Support

Thank you for your professionalism, sincerity and support while guiding us through the bankruptcy process.  You kind words held us up at some very low moments.

Incredible From Start to Finish

"Chad was incredible from start to finish. He was kind and non-judgmental. It was reassuring to have him with me throughout the process. Thank you so much, Chad for everything you did to help me."

Extremely Happy with the Outcome

"Chad helped us understand the legal boundaries and implications in each step of the process. His attention to detail made a difference in our case. He really made the experience more tolerable. We’re extremely happy with the outcome of our case and recommend Chad to anyone in need of sound legal advice and counsel."
