Chelsea Hesla practices primarily in the areas of trust and probate litigation, estate
administration, elder law, and real estate law. Chelsea represents clients in matters
such as will and trust contests; matters involving allegations of breach of fiduciary duty,
surcharge or financial exploitation; simple and complicated guardianship and
conservatorship proceedings; and providing general guidance to trustees, personal
representatives, creditors and heirs/beneficiaries. Chelsea’s experience in residential
and commercial real estate litigation makes her particularly well-suited to handle
matters which involve real estate.
Chelsea understands and appreciates the unique challenges that her clients often face,
and serves her clients’ best interests by combining her litigation experience with
comprehensive solution-oriented approaches. Chelsea is an assertive and thoughtful
negotiator who excels at crafting practical and effective results for her clients short of
trial; however, having tried a variety of cases to favorable jury verdicts, Chelsea is also
a strong advocate in the courtroom and is well-versed in serving her clients in both
small and complex litigation matters.
Chelsea received her Juris Doctor from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at
Arizona State University where she was a National Moot Court Champion. In addition
to competing at the state, regional, and national levels, Chelsea was recognized as the
sole Trial Advocacy Fellow in her graduating class, and received various oral advocacy
awards and scholarships including the American Board of Trial Advocates Scholarship
and the Paul W. Holloway Trial Advocacy Award. Chelsea earned her Bachelor’s
degree in real estate and business from Arizona State University.
