I was referred to Trent Ongert at Bloch & Chapleau by a friend and could not be more grateful for the guidance and support I received throughout my car accident case. Bloch & Chapleau obtained a $550,000 settlement for me! I most likely would have given up a long time ago due to the stress of having to deal with insurance companies on my own. The knowledge I gained alone was worth more than I can say. Trent and the firm did a fantastic job keeping me in the loop every step of the way, prepping me for upcoming meetings, and provided the guidance needed to make the best decisions possible during my case. I cannot thank Trent and the staff enough for being so organized and on top of everything to ensure a successful outcome. Thank you to everyone involved as I am truly grateful for the support, advice, and constant communication. Bloch & Chapleau has definitely earned a lifelong client!


I hired Bloch & Chapleau after I was hit from behind by an inexperienced skier and suffered severe injuries. Joe and Trent aggressively pursued my case and obtained witness affidavits that helped prove my case. When the insurance company initially didn’t offer me any money, Bloch & Chapleau filed a lawsuit and proved to the insurance company and its attorneys that the other skier caused the collision and my injuries. They obtained a $500,000 policy limits settlement, and Bloch & Chapleau never wavered in their pursuit of a policy limits settlement. Thank you Joe and Trent! I appreciate your hard work and the compassion you showed me throughout my case.  As an experienced skier and Summit County resident, I highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau



Thank you for your professionalism and persistence in pursuing my ski collision case. I am very pleased with the way you and the B&C staff handled it. I am totally satisfied with the result.

Hi Trent and Joe,

I cannot thank all of you enough for your help and generosity. It’s evident you all have worked so much and incredibly hard on my case. I don’t doubt it for a second. I think it’s just over 2 years of work. What you all have done for me is more than I thought would happen and I’m so grateful. Thank you for going above and beyond. You’ve helped me so much and thank you doesn’t seem like enough.

Thank you to Joe and Trent for helping me recover a settlement against the drunk driver who ran a stop sign and drove over me while I was crossing the street. I was very impressed with the personal attention I received, as well as the firm’s expertise and professionalism throughout my case. I highly recommend hiring Bloch & Chapleau if you are injured by another person.

-Mario B.

Bloch & Chapleau helped me recover the insurance policy limits of $305,000 against the skier who slammed into me at Breckenridge. Joe and Trent aggressively pursued my case, even when the insurance company initially refused to pay, and they obtained the policy limits settlement almost immediately after filing a lawsuit. I would highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau for a ski injury case. I was very impressed with their expertise and experience in this area of the law.

-Jennifer M.

Thank you again so much for everything you did to help me with my car accident case. If it wasn’t for you and everyone else there, I would have most likely not known there was another option and would’ve taken that $750 check and been left with all these injuries. What you guys do is amazing and I am sure you help so many people. I just wanted to let you know I appreciate all of your help Trent.

Bloch & Chapleau helped me when I was injured in a ski collision on Vail Mountain. Trent and Joe were very clear about the process and were very knowledgeable about the dynamics involved in a ski case. They told me what to expect, and delivered on my expectations. Because they worked hard on my ski collision case, I received $190,000. Thank you for helping me receive the compensation I needed.

-Lisa K.

After I was severely injured in a ski collision at Breckenridge Ski Resort, I called Bloch & Chapleau. I am very grateful for Trent’s and Joe’s work on my case. I was impressed with their knowledge of ski law. Joe met me at the accident site and was able to demonstrate through photos and videos that it was the other skier’s fault. Thank you both for your professionalism and hard work, which got me $150,000. Bloch & Chapleau is the right choice and I highly recommend Joe and Trent. Thank you both for being my strongest advocates!
