Chad is a native of Glendale, Arizona and attended Alhambra High School in west Phoenix. From 1990 to 1992, he served as a missionary for the LDS Church in Bilbao, Spain. He graduated magna cum laude from Arizona State University in 1997 with a degree in Spanish and Latino studies. In 2000, he graduated from Arizona State University Law School. He has worked his entire career in the workers’ compensation field, and has represented thousands of injured workers in front of the Industrial Commission and Arizona Court of Appeals.
In 2003, Chad founded a firm that would become Snow, Carpio, & Weekly – Arizona’s largest workers compensation law firm. Chad’s interest in fighting for the rights of Arizona workers goes beyond the courtroom. He frequently lobbies at the Arizona legislature on bills that affect workers and has received multiple recognitions from organized labor for his efforts on workers’ behalf. In 2011, Chad was the co-founder and Chairman of Citizens for a Better Arizona, a community organization fighting the abuses of power by County and State leaders. Chad led the historic November 2011 recall of Senate President Russell Pearce – the first time in United States history that a sitting legislative leader had been recalled from office. For his efforts on behalf of the citizens of Arizona, Chad was awarded the 2016 Community Service Award by Los Abogados.
In his personal time, Chad enjoys playing soccer, traveling, and spending time with his wife and 5 children, and is a huge fan of the Real Madrid soccer team!
