St. Charles Bankruptcy Attorney
Raymond F. Chandler
My name is Raymond F. Chandler. I am an attorney in St. Peters, Missouri, a suburb of the Greater St. Louis area in St. Charles county. I am currently working with Kell Lampin, LLC doing personal injury cases and managing some of the mass tort projects. I am also a partner at Lampin, Kell, Fagras, Linson, Buehler & Chandler a general practice firm handling bankruptcy, criminal defense, traffic and family law. Between the two firms we cover most all general legal issues.
I grew up in the Kansas City area. I graduated from Rockhurst University in 2000, with a BA in Political Science/Philosophy. While at Rockhurst, I was involved in numerous student groups including the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. After graduating from Rockhurst, and taking a few years to explore career options, the desire to go to law school became too strong to ignore.
In 2002, I started my legal education at the Saint Louis University School of Law. While at SLU Law, I studied numerous areas of law and focused on international legal studies, even taking a summer to study international law in Madrid, Spain. I also interned at both the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the St. Louis County Counselor’s Office. Some of my most rewarding time at SLU was spent with the Jessup International Moot Court team. We eventually advanced far enough to make it to the international finals round in Washington D.C. were I was ranked in the top 50 speakers.
After law school and passing the bar, I started my legal career at the Cole County Prosecuting Attorney’s office in Jefferson City covering cases from traffic tickets to felony possession. After a year spent in the state’s capital, I returned to the St. Louis area, taking a position with the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office handling DWI’s, misdemeanor dockets, and the bad check unit. Eventually I made the decision to go into private practice with (then) Lampin, Kell, Fagras, Linson, Custer & Buehler. Since joining the firm I have handled criminal defense, personal bankruptcy, consumer debt, traffic defense, license issues, and personal injury cases.
As an attorney I feel it is not only my job to zealously advocate for my clients and achieve a maximized result, but also to help guide the client through the complex legal system. I try to take the time to answer a client’s questions about their case so they understand not only the outcome, but also the process and the complexities that their case may face.
