About Marc Chandler
I graduated from Boston College, Summa Cum Laude, in 1988 with a degree in accounting and finance, and from the University if Miami School of Law in 1993. After graduation from law school I began my career in Boston in the field of compensation and benefits, and spent most of my time drafting and amending 401k and pension plans.
After graduation from law school, I also kept in touch with some of my friends from law school including my law partner, John Pape. In addition to discussing our mutual interests such as sports, John and I discussed his move from corporate law to representing people who had been injured in accidents. The more John told me about his personal injury practice, the more intrigued I became. Not only did I like the idea of spending time in court and arguing before a jury, but I liked the idea of representing people because you could actually see the product of your labor.
Finally, in 1995, I decided to follow in John's footsteps. I opened a law office in North Miami Beach and began to represent people who had been injured in accidents. At the beginning of my career as a personal injury attorney, whenever I had a question and I needed competent advice, I called John to discuss the matter. It became clear that John's skills and my skills were complimentary. Some time thereafter, John and I decided to combine our skills and formed the law firm of Pape & Chandler.
Like John, I had always had an interest in motorcycles, but unlike John I didn't ride a motorcycle until 1999; once I began riding I was hooked. Before I began riding we represented a couple of people who had been injured in motorcycle accidents, but I didn't really understand why a person rides. Once I began riding, it was clear why people ride, and I acquired a much better understanding of our clients who rode motorcycles. While riding a motorcycle is not a prerequisite to representing people who have been injured on a motorcycle, it certainly helps in understanding the client, and the dynamics of a motorcycle accident.
