Chandra moved to Seattle in 2010 after practicing law in Austin, Texas for over 10 years. She has worked on several successful appeals, and her current practice areas include estate planning, probate, small business, and nonprofit law. Chandra had her first experience with public advocacy while working as a lobbyist and media relations intern for a consumer group as an undergraduate. She has volunteered extensively with a number of nonprofit organizations, most recently serving as Vice President of FixAustin, an animal welfare advocacy group that led the successful campaign to reform the city’s animal shelter and make Austin the largest “no kill” community in the nation. Chandra is a graduate of Harvard University and the University of Texas School of Law. In her spare time, Chandra enjoys walking and swimming with her two rescue dogs, kayaking, reading, learning about new technologies, and the elusive search for the best coffee shop in Seattle.
