Partner History

Our founders, Austin W. Bartlett and Emily A. Chen, met in 1998 in France while studying international law. They wound up attending the same law school, getting married, and practicing in Chicago in different fields.

Since 2000, Austin has been focused on representing airlines, manufacturers, and insurers in high-profile litigation in courthouses across the United States both in trial courts and on appeal. For nearly 18 years, he was employed by one of the most prominent aviation defense firms in the country. He has been selected as a Rising Star by Illinois Super Lawyers from 2010-2015 and a Leading Lawyer by Leading Lawyers Network.

Emily practiced at a different Chicago firm where she excelled at civil litigation defense and appeals. She then went to work for a dot.com and assisted multinational corporations and a culturally and ethnically diverse clientele with their immigration needs.

In 2018, Austin and Emily decided to start BartlettChen LLC out of a shared passion to help individuals with their legal problems.
