Mr. Chamberlain was born and raised in Eugene where he graduated from South Eugene High School in 1999.  A brief desire for sunnier skies landed him in Claremont, California, where he earned his undergraduate degree in psychology.  Studies focusing on the intersection of psychology and the law motivated Mr. Chamberlain to return to Oregon and attend the University of Oregon School of Law.  While attending the U of O, Mr. Chamberlain earned joint degrees in Law and a Masters in Conflict and Dispute Resolution. Mr. Chamberlain focuses his practice on helping people manage landlord/tenant disputes, bankruptcy, estate planning, and elder law issues.
