Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • Throughout my 36 year career I have practiced in the Supreme Court of the Third Department, Third and Fourth Judicial Districts. I have extensive experience in Civil Trial Practice and have been representing parties in Supreme Court throughout my 36 year carerr. During that time I have also been a Part Time Town Attorney for the Town of Halfmoon, handling all Town matters, Planning and Zoning matters and all related litigation and Special District work. I have spent 30 years as a Part Time District Attorney trying cases involving felonies, misdemeanors and minor infractions. I have had an active Real Estate practice handling over 3000 residential and commercial closings. I live in Saratoga Springs with my wife Carol (Chapman) Chauvin. My son Matthew is an Assistant District Attorney in Saratoga County. My son Sean is an Administrator in Pittsburgh. I have engaged in volunteer activities and represented the Hillcrest Fire Department pro bono for several years. I believe it is incumbent on experienced attorneys to share the lessons learned over 36 years to help litigants acheive justice in the Supreme Court, Third Department, Fourth Judicial District.
