The Chivis Law Firm was formed by John Chivis. Mr. Chivis is passionate about fighting for his clients and provides his clients with cutting-edge legal representation using a unique combination of experience and ingenuity. Mr. Chivis' unique approach includes actively listening to client concerns, discussing strategic approaches to every detail of the case, and helping clients deal with the anxiety and stress of handling their legal issues.
Most importantly, Mr. Chivis takes pride in providing the highest level of customer service. Prior to attending law school, Mr. Chivis was a Manager with a Fortune 50 Corporation, overseeing a group of Executive Analysts, and responsible for ensuring that his team provided World-Class customer service. Mr. Chivis was recognized by the CEO of that Fortune 50 company, and the CEO noted “I’ve begun to notice that you are the supervisor for many of the reps that receive complimentary customer letters. I want to thank you for the service that you and your reps are offering our customers. It takes an extraordinary effort to convince a customer to take the time and effort to write a letter of thanks and recognition. Please pass my congratulations and thanks to all of your people”. As an attorney, Mr. Chivis strives to provide that same high level of customer service. Mr. Chivis believes that each client has unique issues, and that each client deserves customized representation, and the ability to speak directly to their attorney, not a receptionist or paralegal.
Mr. Chivis grew up in Carrollton, Texas and then attended The University of Texas at Arlington where he obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration. Following a successful career in Corporate America, Mr. Chivis moved to Houston to attend Law School at Texas Southern University.
After law school, Mr. Chivis was offered a unique and career-changing opportunity with one of Houston’s most prestigious law firms. Mr. Chivis gained invaluable experience working on complex civil trials, fighting for the rights of the insured, against giant insurance companies. Mr. Chivis drafted numerous lawsuits against large Corporate Insurance Companies, helping the firm recover on behalf of the firm's clients.
Mr. Chivis then decided to open his own law office and formed The Chivis Law Firm, PLLC.
