About Chaffin Luhana:

We are a personal injury law firm but not the typical firm you may have seen on television. We believe in value-based advocacy. Our motto is Doing Good by Doing Right. Everyday. In Everything We Do. We have established ourselves as a go-to national and regional law firm. We have grown tremendously and continue to grow. We represent only plaintiffs and never defendants. We have a non-profit foundation that supports our communities and causes, and philanthropy is an integral part of who we are as a firm. Unlike many law firms, we do our own business development, marketing and client screening in-house. So, while we are a law firm and a very compassionate one with strong core values, we do a lot of what most people would consider “business” types of work such as setting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for our team, and meeting monthly, 90 day and annual goals—this is all part of our drive to excel and our growth mindset. In short, we are a different kind of personal injury law firm in so many ways—in fact almost all the ways! Our causes are our clients, and we passionately represent them!

We’re all about working hard and staying humble and compassionate. In the spirit of humblebragging, here are some takeaways:

  • Former state and federal prosecutors.

  • Former state and federal law clerks to judges.

  • Court-appointed leaders to some of the most important national product liability cases.

  • Over 130 years of combined legal experience.

  • Attorneys have recovered over $1 billion for plaintiffs in their careers.

  • Ranks include SuperLawyers and Multi-million Dollar advocates.

  • Social Worker on staff to assist clients.

  • Expanded reach with 3 offices in different states—ranging from NYC to a small town in WV—reflecting our drive but also our caring side.

  • Cases and attorneys regularly featured in the press including on ABC World News, Good Morning America and in many other news outlets!

  • Publish Living Safer and Legal Examiner.

  • Have our own foundation that does a lot of good, by doing right—the Chaffin Luhana Foundation!


If you’re looking for a job that’s boring and easy, you won’t find that here. We put our all into everything we do. Greatness is achieved through hard work, discipline, and sacrifice, and we’re determined to be great.

We’re not crazy; we just believe in our causes, our clients and what we do!

If you'd like to be part of a nationally recognized, collaborative and downright badass team, then we can’t wait to hear from you.
