Bolles alumnus Chip Bachara ’78 continues to gain recognition for his excellence in the legal industry, both regionally and nationally. Most recently, Bachara and his colleagues at Bachara Construction Law Group in Jacksonville, Florida celebrated the firm’s 15th anniversary.

In August, he was again selected by his peers as one of the Best Lawyers in America© in the areas of construction law and construction litigation. Bachara was also included as a member of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite and Florida Super Lawyers earlier this year.

In July, he rotated off the Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC) for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit after 11 years. During his tenure, which included two terms as chair, the JNC interviewed nearly 500 judicial candidates and helped appoint 33 judges.

With a bachelor’s degree in building construction from the University of Florida and a JD from Mercer University School of Law, Bachara is a licensed general contractor (inactive) and a Florida Bar Board Certified Construction Lawyer. He has practiced construction law since obtaining his law degree in 1986.
