John Chaix has been working in construction defect litigation for over 25 years. John is a native Californian, having been raised in Menlo Park, California. After attending San Diego State University, John received his J.D. from Western State University School of Law (currently Thomas Jefferson School of Law) in San Diego (1990). He immediately focused his practice on construction defect litigation by working for several law firms, handling their construction defect cases, in San Diego, Orange County and the Inland Empire. This experience solidified his commitment to representing property owners with construction defects to this day.
Encouraged by friends, professional peers and community managers, John opened his firm with offices in Orange County, CA and Phoenix, AZ in 1996. Just as John was one of the first attorneys to exclusively practice in construction defect litigation in California, John was also one of the first law firms in Arizona to exclusively practice in construction defect law and, to this day, is regarded as a founding father in Arizona for this area of practice. With over 25 years of experience in the field of construction defect law and over $100 million in recoveries, John is considered one of the leading defect firms in the Southwest. Because of his hands-on approach, he has the ability to respond to client needs with personal and professional service.
John supports the HOA industry through the volunteer and educational organizations of Community Association Institute, Arizona Association of Community Managers, California Association of Community Managers and The Leadership Center. He maintains his license in both Arizona and California, allowing him to meet the needs of clients in both states. For a full list of John’s affiliations, please click here.
Chaix Law continues to build on their history: a history devoted to protecting the rights of homeowners and their associations with construction defects.
John and his wife, Michelle, and their three children enjoy both California and Arizona with homes and businesses in both states.
