Chad Dudley – CEO/Owner
Born in Southern California and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Chad played competitive tennis on a national level. His skills earned him a scholarship to Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy (now IMG Academy) in Bradenton, Florida, where he graduated high school. He then moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to accept a tennis scholarship at Louisiana State University (LSU).
After earning his undergraduate degree at LSU, he attended LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, where he received his Juris Doctor. From his very first job out of law school, Chad’s focus has remained on protecting the rights of injury victims.
In 2009, Chad founded Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers, a Louisiana-based personal injury law firm, with partners Steven DeBosier and James Peltier. The firm has grown from just a few attorneys and staff members to nearly 50 attorneys and more than 170 employees throughout Louisiana.
Additionally, in 2009, he also founded Vista Consulting, a consulting firm dedicated to helping other plaintiff personal injury law firms run more efficiently. For nearly a decade, Chad worked with almost 100 personal injury law firms, becoming an authority on the topic of law firm management and a frequent speaker at national conferences. In 2017, Chad left Vista Consulting to take on the role of CEO at cj Advertising.
