Kelley D. Chaney, RP, CEDS
Kelley Chaney joined Dunn Carney LLP in Portland, Oregon, in 2012 as a complex litigation paralegal; she has more than two decades of experience working in the legal field. Kelley assists attorneys in all aspects of case management, discovery and trial preparation. She has extensive experience in employment law, traumatic brain injury cases, business litigation, insurance defense and personal injury litigation.
Kelley specializes in managing e-discovery by applying innovative ESI strategies. She is one of only a handful of Oregon paralegals with an e-discovery certification through ACEDS. She tackles e-discovery early in the case, starting with developing a targeted defensible plan for identification, preservation, and collection. Kelley’s experience allows her to balance the use of the latest technology with a practical evaluation of cost-effective alternatives tailored for each case.
Active in the pro bono community, Kelley believes that paralegals have a unique set of skills that can benefit the equal access to justice goals of the legal community. Her passion is to continue matching appropriate pro bono and community service opportunities in Portland with suitable volunteer paralegals.
