Message from the Founder, Brett Shaw

At Chronicle Law, we believe a healthy mind is essential both professionally and personally.

We aim to take the effort out of learning by providing busy professionals with informative, accurate content all in one place.

Our team understands that mental health is not a one-size-fits-all journey, and we’re dedicated to promoting open conversations and providing a safe space for you to learn and grow.

Battling mental health issues is something that many of us face on a day-to-day basis, and having the best resources to get help when needed is vital. It’s something I’m heavily passionate about, having gone through struggles with my own mental health. 

Community is key, and Chronicle Law is here to unlock the opportunity for anyone who is battling mental health issues to be able to get help and advice when it’s needed the most.
