Chad Cronon was an instructor of legal studies at the University of Central Florida. He also practices law privately.
I met Chad when my political support team needed an attorney to file an injunction against an opponent candidate who was a well known, establishment and status quo, Black attorney who was running for City Council in his mother's shadow.
We wanted a Black attorney to file the injunction, but could not find one who would take the case. Chad Cronon decided to take the case. Chad was white and had tried cases against government entities and won. I advised him of the issues that Black attorneys face in this type of situation, but Chad was confident that he would be triumphant and there would be no issue.
