The Chandra Law Firm, LLC
1265 West 6th Street, Suite 400
Cleveland, OH 44113
Chandra completed service in 2005 as Director of Law of the City of Cleveland, a billion-dollar corporation. Chandra led the work of an 82-lawyer department with both criminal and civil divisions. He also sometimes served as the City’s acting mayor.
As Cleveland’s general counsel, Chandra handled legal work in-house and slashed by nearly 90% spending on outside counsel, saving millions; moved vigorously through in-house investigations to clean up internal corruption; restored the department’s reputation; and attracted top performers who helped make it Ohio’s most diverse law firm.
Previously, as federal prosecutor, Chandra successfully prosecuted healthcare fraud and corruption—winning recognition from FBI director Robert Mueller. Before that, Chandra served as a litigator in large firms in both Cleveland and Los Angeles, and served as special presidential counsel at the American Bar Association.
Chandra is a graduate of the Yale Law School, where he was executive editor of the Yale Law & Policy Review. He also graduated with honors and distinction from Stanford University, which awarded him the John Gardner Fellowship to work with Ohio Governor Dick Celeste.
After serving as law director, Chandra served as Distinguished Practitioner in Residence at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, teaching appellate practice and legal ethics. He has served as an ethics and attorneys' fees expert in litigation.
Chandra is admitted to practice law in Ohio, California, and New Mexico (inactive).
Chandra is married to Meena Morey Chandra, program manager with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. They have triplet elementary-school age boys and live in Cleveland.
