Professional Overview

Linda has always practiced as a trial lawyer, exclusively personal injury claims. As a matter of policy, Chalat Law does not accept a case unless we can commit to pursuing the claim through trial. As a pragmatic matter, many cases resolve during pre-litigation and for those that are filed, very few go to trial. Linda has successfully handled all types of catastrophic injury cases including motor vehicle accidents, ski accidents, premises liability claims, defective product cases and professional malpractice.
