Jim Chalat of Chalat Hatten & Banker represented my husband and me in a personal injury case in which we were the victims of a high speed car crash committed by a drunk driver. We sustained significant injuries that required ICU treatment and surgery. The case was further complicated by the fact that the driver was uninsured. Jim was highly responsive to our needs and experienced in what to expect from the type of injuries we received. He made things as easy as possible for us and even came to our house (pre-Covid) when documents required review. Jim alleviated an enormous weight for us in making sure the myriad of medical providers were paid and he negotiated a fair settlement from our insurance company. We can’t thank Jim enough.
It was wonderful working with Evan Banker while dealing with an unfortunate accident. He made the process easy and explained everything along the way. I was able to understand my case and what to expect with great results. I highly recommend working with Chalat Hatten and Banker.
Chalat Law has been nothing but amazing for me. My husband is currently deployed and I had to go home to Arizona while he is away. Even though I was in a different state they kept in touch, made paperwork simple, and overall exceeded my expectations. Russell Hatten is a phenomenal lawyer and his team was amazing as well. My case was handled in a timely manner and Russell met all of my needs. Would highly recommend them to anyone!

In my first conversation with Russell Hatten, I made a simple request that he advise me as if I were a family member. He and his team did just that; integrity, honesty, responsiveness, thoughtfulness, professionalism, and legal expertise is what I received. I was very satisfied with the experience and the fairness of the settlement. I strongly recommend Russell Hatten and his law firm from every considerable aspect.

Surely no one wants to be involved in a car accident and even fewer people want to deal with insurance companies after the fact. Having Jim, Linda and their office handle the entirety of the process made my life dramatically simpler and less stressful such that I could focus on everything my body needed to heal.
I somehow always felt I received the care and attention that only small intimate office could provide while also receiving the resources and power that only a large office could muster. This gave me the utmost confidence that my case resulted in the best possible outcome for me personally and that my interests were always paramount.
While these situations are often measured by the financial, they are inherently personal and at all times I felt they truly cared and were invested in the best outcome for me. I would not and have not hesitated to refer friends, family or strangers to them as I am certain they would receive the same level of professionalism, care, thoroughness and even occasional humor (well needed at times) to keep things in perspective and get to the finish line.
Times were crazy and confusing after a major head on collision and all six of my family members were broken and hospitalized. After interviewing 3 law firms, I chose the Chalat Hatten & Banker law firm. From the very beginning, Russell and Jim were there and helped me and each of my family members as they were released from the hospital with everything from the hospitals to insurance companies.
It was such a burden lifted off my family and myself that we could concentrate on getting us healed and back to somewhat normal way of life. Any time any of us called or e-mailed any issues, Russell or Jim were on it without any hesitation and got back to us right away with answers and solutions. Without their help our lives would have been so difficult in our time of need. Not only is this firm very professional and knowledgeable they truly care and always treated us with respect and we will always consider them as friends! Gentlemen we all can’t thank you enough!
Obviously, I wish my ski accident and injury had never happened. It had an effect on not only me, but my entire family. I appreciated the personal care and support during my difficult time from Evan Banker and all of the staff at Chalat, Hatten & Banker. They were very helpful each time I called with a question and were always professional and courteous. I live out of state, which sometimes made communications difficult but they always worked it out. Additionally, when I called, Evan always answered my questions personally and took the time to explain the details of the case that I needed to know. He was candid and thorough when he was discussing the circumstances of my case and always ensured that I understood what to expect next. I was always kept well informed.
Evan and his staff took a very difficult time in my life and made it bearable. I’m very glad I chose them to represent me.

I am beyond thankful that Russell Hatten and the Chalat, Hatten & Banker firm took on my personal injury case. Having never been through something like this before, I wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision in hiring a lawyer.
