This case was brought by the personal representative of the estate of a woman who committed suicide in 2014. The woman was a patient of a doctor at OHSU and sought counseling from a Defendant counselor. Plaintiff alleged that at the time of the suicide, both Defendants were aware that the woman had purchased a gun and expressed her intention to commit suicide. Plaintiff alleges Defendants were negligent for failing to take steps to ensure the gun was no longer in the deceased woman’s possession. They allege the doctor and OHSU were negligent for failing to initiate involuntary hospitalization proceedings, failing to put a psychiatric hold on the deceased, failing to discontinue her medication and failing to implement an adequate safety plan. They allege the counselor was negligent for failing to take an adequate mental health history and failing to implement an adequate safety plan. The estate sought $1,500,000 for the beneficiaries.
Defendants both denied any liability and alleged that the deceased herself was negligent for telling her providers she was not suicidal, not giving up the gun and not alerting family members of her plan.
Chad helped our family when my dad and his dog suffered a particularly vicious attack by another dog. From start to finish, Chad was responsive and helped us navigate through a confusing and emotionally difficult period. It's clear that he's not only highly competent as an attorney, but is also a caring and compassionate person. We are forever grateful to him for his guidance and his skill which ultimately brought us the justice we were seeking.

Chad was beyond helpful after I got hit by a car on my motorcycle in Nov. Without HIM, I know I would've walked away with bills instead of money in my pocket after the settlement. What's more, he was trustworthy and genuinely wanted to be sure I made out alright. I expected to have to watch any lawyer I hired with a microscope, but it wasn't that way at all. AnD unlike other lawyers I spoke with, he actually takes his cut AFTER medical bills have been paid. Not before, assuming they'll knock off a percentage. I couldn't recommend him more.

Chad always kept us informed with every step with a personal phone call. He was a pleasure to work with and was able to get us more than we expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney for an accident. He said our case was "in his wheelhouse "! And he proved it! Thank you, Chad!
- Debra Buie
Chad is a great guy to work with, very down to earth and easy to talk to. He worked with me on the wrongful death case of my husband, and I couldn't be happier with his quick responses and approach. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants an attorney that is knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile for his clients.
