Chelsea L. Caldwell

Attorney

Chelsea L. Caldwell graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign in 2011, receiving a B.A. in English and Communications. Chelsea went on to receive her J.D. from Valparaiso Law in 2014, graduating with honors. Chelsea has been a licensed member of the Illinois State Bar since 2014 and is also licensed to practice in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

Chelsea gravitated toward personal injury law because she is passionate about helping people in their hour of need. She advocates in and out of court to obtain fair and just compensation for her clients who have been injured due to the negligence of others. Chelsea works closely with her clients to understand their specific circumstances and to build the strongest case possible for each one.

Chelsea joined Kaiser Hafezi Law in 2018 and concentrates her practice on representing injured clients and their families in all types of personal injury cases, including motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, medical malpractice, trucking, wrongful death, and other unique litigation cases. Prior to joining Kaiser Hafezi Law, she was the sole attorney at a local branch of a nationally recognized personal injury firm, where she successfully managed a tremendous caseload.

Chelsea is an experienced and zealous litigator who, in her short career, has already performed well beyond her years. As an attorney at Kaiser Hafezi Law, Chelsea has resolved many claims through pre-litigation settlements, pretrial conferences, arbitrations, and mediations. Chelsea is also an accomplished and successful trial attorney, as she has taken multiple cases to verdict. Throughout her career, she has secured millions of dollars in compensation for her clients and their families.

Chelsea is an active member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, DuPage County Bar Association, and DuPage County Inns of Court, which is an invitation-only group. In 2020, the National Trial Lawyers named Chelsea a Top 40 Under 40 for Civil Plaintiff's Attorneys. Chelsea was also named a SuperLawyers Rising Star for 2021, an honor bestowed on only 2.5 percent of total lawyers under the age of 40.

Outside of the office, Chelsea enjoys musical theater, the performing arts, reading, and spending time with her family and friends.
