    Attorney Profile

    A co-founder of Maho | Prentice, LLP Attorneys at Law, Chad M. Prentice focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, and his experience also extends to the representation of plaintiffs in employment law matters. He represents clients throughout Southern California from the firm’s offices in Santa Barbara.

    Mr. Prentice attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, as an undergraduate, where he majored in law and society and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1990. He then went on to pursue his legal studies at Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law in Malibu, and he obtained a certificate in alternative dispute resolution before graduating with his Juris Doctor in 1994.

    Mr. Prentice’s personal injury clients are people who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties, and the types of cases that he has handled over his career have involved premises liability, truck, motorcycle and car crashes, defective products, auto-pedestrian accidents, elder abuse, assault and dog bites. He has been able to obtain millions of dollars in compensation for his clients through both jury verdicts and negotiated settlements, and he can draw upon his prior experience in representing defendants in these types of matters to better service his current plaintiff client base.

    Fluent in Spanish as well as in English, Mr. Prentice has been admitted to practice before all California state courts as well as before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California since 1994. His professional memberships have included the American Board of Trial Advocates and the Santa Barbara County Bar Association, and his community involvement has encompassed coaching youth sports and serving on the board of directors of a nonprofit organization devoted to helping developmentally disabled youths and adults.
