Signed in as:
Trinette Chandler, Esq., is the founding partner of The Chandler Law Group, LLP a boutique law firm focused on government procurement and commercial contract matters. Her matters primarily involve leading, winning, managing, and providing legal advice to Department of Defense (DoD), National Security, healthcare, and aerospace procurement leaders. The majority of those efforts was each worth $500M+ to $5.8B (single award) on behalf of major defense contractors. Primary focus includes: acquisitions, anti-fraud, procurement, regulatory compliance, ethics, government relations, and governance matters.
She is often called to solve tough issues and fix trouble spots in “must-win, bet-the-company” opportunities. She offers clients compassion, an “Army-brat” work ethic, and the subject matter expertise developed after 27+ years of working in complex, high-visibility Federal contracts as an attorney, on-site contractor, and procurement consultant. Her passion is leveraging the skills and resources attained in nearly three decades of working with large firms to then provide her community with pro bono legal support to minority-owned, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs), and Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs).
She founded My Mother’s Table in 2010 to help combat homelessness among veterans, as well as to help low-income military/Wounded Warrior families during the holidays. Her goal is to help our active- duty military and veterans in any way she can, with a spirit of joyful service and gratitude in honor of the sacrifices they make and have made on a daily basis.
Ms. Chandler earned a B.S. in Technical Writing and a Minor in Medical Writing from Carnegie Mellon University (with an emphasis on the Computer Engineering and Sciences track). While there, she was a Dean’s List honoree and was active in community projects, the school newspaper, and many social justice campaigns.
Her Juris Doctorate is from the American University Washington College of Law, where she was a Dean’s Fellow, law clerk, and student lawyer on the Innocence Project.
She earned a Masters of Law degree (LLM) in Procurement Law at the George Washington University Law School. While there, she served as a managing editor on the editorial board of the American Bar Association's prestigious Public Contract Law Journal. She is most proud of the awards she has received recognizing her firm’s strong pro bono practice for veterans, small businesses, and domestic violence survivors.
