Spencer Chauncey

Pleasant Ridge, Michigan

Spencer Chauncey fights vigorously for the rights of his clients and has a particularly strong interest in protecting those who feel victimized by the legal system. He is drawn to helping clients with civil rights, products liability, and toxic tort issues. He devotes his time at Romano Law to multiple areas of practice including no-fault and personal injury litigation. Spencer's passion for the law was developed throughout his upbringing in a family that always stressed the importance of equality. His family instilled in him the value of hard work and perseverance, which now serve him well in the practice of law.

Spencer earned his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, where he was interested in the biological and political sciences. His strong interest in the sciences led him to pursue a career where he could blend both science and the pillars of law into a successful legal career. He received his Juris Doctorate from the Michigan State College of Law. While attending MSU College of Law, Spencer was drawn to being in the courtroom and civil litigation. He helped author a case study on the recent GM Ignition Crisis to facilitate law students' understanding of the complex issues involved in high profile civil litigation. His awards include a 2015 Donald Nystrom Best Brief Competition Finalist Award, a Jurisprudence Award in Advocacy, and a Jurisprudence Award in Federal Criminal Investigation and Prosecution. He worked with the Tenant Law Project of West Michigan, and with the El Paso County District Attorney's Office in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was through these experiences that Spencer developed a passion for serving those who feel overlooked by the legal system and a determination to protect their rights in the courtroom.

Spencer lives in downtown Detroit. When he is not in the office or courtroom advocating for his clients, Spencer enjoys running road races, cheering on his Wolverines, and working through climbing each of Colorado's forty-five fourteen thousand foot peaks.
