A Founder’s Legacy: Moving Chase’s Culture and Values Forward

When our late president, Lisa Michaels, founded Chase Litigation Services in 1984, she could scarcely imagine what it would grow into. Though during the early years, Chase’s operations were conducted out of the living room of her tiny bungalow in Seal Beach, California, Lisa’s approach was always to provide big-firm reach with small-firm responsiveness and tailored personal service. Over 35 years later, this is the legacy we proudly carry forward in her memory.

When the company’s leadership transitioned from its founder in 2018, to our new CEO, the period that followed was a defining moment in the company’s culture and future. Despite having to move into the role under challenging circumstances, Linda Nelson skillfully stepped in and steered Chase forward.

Then, in the spring of 2020, Linda successfully pivoted to the seismic changes occurring within the legal industry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Chase once again was at the forefront of technological changes and advances to assist our clients in creating the best virtual depositions and other litigation services possible.

While we don’t know what new challenges and changes the legal industry will face, what we can be certain of Lisa Michaels’ legacy of excellence will always be the driving mission of Chase Litigation Services.
