Chelsie M. Lamie is a former claims adjuster and insurance defense attorney turned personal injury attorney. For the past fifteen years she has exclusively represented the injured. In 2016, with two kids under two, Chelsie opened her own personal injury law firm in Clearwater, Florida. In 2018, she closed her brick-and-mortar office and took her six-person law firm virtual. In early 2019, she moved her family to Mexico. Recently, her family has decided to relocate from Mexico to Spain. Chelsie has been able to run her law practice 100% from abroad since 2019 and plans to continue to do so for decades to come. Chelsie is as passionate about law firm culture and team building as she is about fighting for the rights of injury victims. She has perfected a working interview system that she credits with weeding out ill-fitting potential employees and has mastered retaining her firm’s talent by creating and implementing innovative perks. She is most proud of the culture that she has created within her law firm. On top of running her successful personal injury practice, Chelsie dedicates a few hours each month to coaching other law firm owners on launching and scaling their practices and for those interested, in learning personal injury to add as a practice area. Chelsie’s greatest joy is being a mom to her two young boys. Her hobbies include reading for pleasure, scuba diving, and international travel.
