A desire to help people in difficult situations has been the driving focus of Chloe Sease’s career hopes, from the moment she stepped onto the campus at Baylor University in 2009.
That desire to help others initially led her into the field of biochemistry where she obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in 2013. As she considered her career hopes, Chloe did what lawyers do, and that dig beneath the surface of the facts to get the real truth. She saw that her interest in science and medicine were really reflections of a deep desire to help other people.
Chloe contemplated whether there was a different path that could allow her to fulfill that goal. That led her to instead pursue a law degree in her post-graduate work at Baylor.
The decision to go to law school at Baylor was more than just a demonstration of loyalty to her alma mater–Chloe stayed in Waco because Baylor’s program placed an emphasis on preparing attorneys for the battles that come with trial law. Trials are where real people are faced with situations that can be scary, and that’s where Chloe wanted to be.
The studiousness and love for research that was necessary to her science and medicine studies were easily applicable to the law, and her post-graduate work helped her refine those even further. Chloe worked diligently to learn the drafting and writing skills that are necessary for the legal profession.
Chloe’s first roles out of law school, as both a clerk and then an associate attorney, led her into personal injury and insurance defense. Cutting her teeth on cases worth millions of dollars was a valuable experience. She still sought a role that would be more people-centered.
When a client shares their legal struggles with Chloe Sease, they are talking to an attorney who had options. Chloe could have chosen medicine, but instead chose law. She could have chosen research on multi-million dollar cases, but she instead chose to deal with real people facing real problems. She wants to be there for people and to be both their counselor and their fierce advocate.
When not practicing law, Chloe loves ballet and was a trained ballerina for 13 years (1994-2006). She runs half-marathons and enjoys cheering on the Baylor Bears sports teams and the Houston Astros.
