Spencer J. Chauncey

Spencer Chauncey draws upon his superior analytical and courtroom advocacy skills to defend clients against insurance fraud, first-party no-fault, third-party motor vehicle negligence, and other claims.

While attending the University of Michigan, Spencer initially prepared for a career in medicine but pivoted to political science and pre-law studies. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, he pursued his Juris Doctor at Michigan State University College of Law. In addition to earning various academic awards, he channeled his science background into research regarding product liability theories associated with General Motors’ defective ignition switches. His work culminated in a published article that he co-authored with Professor Nicholas Wittner, who was previously the head of the Product Group in Nissan North America’s Legal Department.
