Chandler, who later served with distinction as Circuit Judge for Union, Webster and Crittenden Counties, as well as Webster County Attorney, and Commonwealth’s Attorney. Jerry and Tommy established a successful practice and represented many injured and disabled clients in Union County.
In 1974 Jerry relocated his practice to Hopkins County and represented the United Mine Workers of America (“UMWA”) and its members in their personal injury, workers’ compensation, black lung and social security disability claims. He developed a successful personal injury practice, which grew into Rhoads & Rhoads in 1976 with the association of his brother, Tom.
