In 1928, John Chason opened his law office in Bay Minette, the County Seat of Baldwin County. He practiced law there for 64 years before his death. During his practice, he was a civic and professional leader in Southwest Alabama, with a reputation for rendering legal services competently, honestly, and with the utmost integrity. He was known for civility and professionalism in the manner in which he dealt with clients, judges, opposing parties, and their counsel. In 1948, the Baldwin County Bar Association was organized. John Chason served as the first president of the Association. Every partner with the firm since that date has also served as President of that organization.
