Chase Trichell is the third of four boys and was born and raised in Natchitoches, Louisiana. After earning an English—Creative Writing degree from LSU, Chase enrolled at LSU Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor and a Graduate Diploma in Comparative Law. While at LSU Law, Chase was elected by the student body to serve as the Executive Director of Programming for the Student Bar Association.


Chase was trained to be a litigator and revels in the opportunity to take on Big Business. He believes that civil law is about providing a voice to the voiceless. To Chase, his job is unique because he's entrusted to represent everyday people on the same playing field as high-powered corporations. This responsibility is an honor for Chase, who adopts a David v. Goliath mentality in every case.


In fact, Chase won his first trial only eight months into his career and has earned a reputation ever since as a staunch crusader for his clients.

Civil litigation dynamo Trichell Law Firm has added multi-talented attorney Kelsey Balzli Yarbrough to its growing team. Yarbrough brings to the firm five years of communications, branding, and public relations experience within the realm of law practice. She is overjoyed to now take on a more direct role in advocating for clients on the left side of the “v.”


Yarbrough graduated from LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 2018, where she was inducted into the Order of the Barristers, a national honor society recognizing the top ten written and oral advocates in each class. She also served on the board of the law school’s Public Interest Law Society, was a finalist in the nation’s largest moot court competition, and received the Honorable Ginger E. Berrigan award.


After graduating, Yarbrough worked as Director of Communications for Louisiana Association for Justice, the state’s trial lawyer association. While at LAJ, Yarbrough relished working with association members on issues facing the civil justice system during annual legislative sessions. She later joined an Austin-based, nationwide personal injury firm to manage its external relations and advertising. Yarbrough now makes her professional return to Louisiana to help the injured and aggrieved pursue justice through civil litigation.


“This is such a natural and seamless step in my life and career,” Yarbrough said. “Baton Rouge is my home—I feel called to fight for people and families in my community who deserve justice and inspired representation. I am so excited to join one of the most innovative law firms in our state that has a track record of always putting people first.”
