Chandra received her bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Spanish at the University of South Carolina, graduating with Honors from the South Carolina Honors College. After college, Chandra returned home to Arizona and began working at one of the valley’s large personal injury firms. Chandra started as a receptionist and quickly transitioned into a paralegal role. This experience gave her hands-on knowledge of how to handle the details and day-to-day aspects of guiding clients through the personal injury claims process. Because she wanted to be able to do more to help her clients, Chandra made the decision to return to law and become an attorney.
Chandra received her Juris Doctorate from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in Tempe, one of the top public law schools in the country. While at Sandra Day, Chandra was a board member of Volunteer Legal Assistance for Artists, participated in several other pro bono organizations, and competed in Moot Court. She was admitted into the State Bar of Arizona in 2012.
After being admitted to practice, Chandra began working at Hasting and Hastings, becoming the managing attorney for the firm’s West Valley office within her first year. During her time with the firm she recovered millions of dollars for her clients. After a successful tenure at Hastings and Hastings, Chandra accepted a position with the Law Offices of Samuel P. Moeller, with a greater concentration on litigation work.
Chandra and Kel have known each other for a number of years, first becoming acquainted while she was working as a paralegal and Kel was an intern with Hastings and Hastings. After they both returned to Hastings and Hastings as attorneys, Kel and Chandra continued to work together, frequently collaborating to create effective case strategy for their respective clients. Chandra joined Vrana Law Firm because she and Kel share the same values when it comes to client representation, they are focused on ensuring every client and every case receives their personal, hands-on attention.
