Staci Chisholm - Attorney at Law - Chisholm Beach Law Offices

Staci Kelly Chisholm

Staci Kelly Chisholm believes that successful advocacy starts with setting her client’s expectations, followed by preparation, good faith negotiations and efficiency in processes. In Staci’s 16 years practicing law, this foundation, she finds, is the best approach for clients experiencing the angst of separation, divorce, and personal injury. Staci has experience on both sides of personal injury cases. She has represented medical professionals and injured persons. Staci is also trained in Collaborative Law which is a unique non-adversarial process which allows divorcing couples to resolve their issues without having to go through traditional litigation.
Staci is a proud native of Quincy, Florida. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Economics from Florida A & M University. She went on to earn a Master of Science degree in Economics from Florida State University and completed her Juris Doctor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. When asked which school she roots for, she says, “all of them and when they’re playing each other, the underdog of course.”
Staci is a Former Board Member of Bay Area Legal Services and the Clearwater Bar Association. She is also the past Section Chair of the Family Law Section of the Clearwater Bar Association and a member of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar. Staci volunteers her time assisting Bay Area Legal Services with their Family Law Forms Clinic to provide individuals with pro se legal assistance and partners with them providing limited representation to members of the community who cannot afford representation. Staci volunteers her time to organize and provide legal assistance to the Clearwater Bar Annual Legal Fair which helps members of the community, regardless of income, with family law matters. Staci zealously represents the Three Bears in the mock trial, Goldilocks vs. the Three Bears, which is an annual courthouse field trip for local grade school children. Staci is also the recipient of the first ever Clearwater Bar Association President’s Award for Excellence in Pro Bono Legal Services for 2017.
Staci is an adjunct Professor of Economics at Valencia College. In her free time she enjoys spending family Fridays with her family. She also enjoys art, jazz, and all things Napa Valley.
