When Lance says he won't give up a fight until it's over he's 110% serious!! I'm currently in the midst of a second round of litigation with Lance for a family law matter and I am constantly blown away time and time again by his persistence, foresight, responsiveness, enthusiasm and hunger for learning.
Not only is he taking my case as seriously as though my child was his own, but he's teaching me as this goes. I don't just want it done, I want to UNDERSTAND and he can put it to you clearly.
Lance is professional by every measure but no stiff, he's a real guy who can really hear you and empathize with challenges that real people face in real life.
I'm not getting a a kickback for writing this, Just blessed to have made Lances acquaintance.

I couldn't say enough good things about Lance. He represented me in an employment situation. His knowledge was second to none.

Attorney Chavin has been a great help to my department and town. As Code Enforcement Officer and selectboard chairman for a small western massachusetts town Attorney Chavin has helped to close two very difficult and drawn out cases that have plagued us for years. Lances persistance and timely actions have resolved these cases in record time and with all of the results we have hoped for. He excels in all of the qualities listed above and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Truely an outstanding attorney!
In reference to the less than flattering review that he was given, I was also involved in that case and at no time did Attorney Chavin act inappropriately or unprofessional at any time.

This is a follow up to my original review, things changed as my case went on.
At first he seemed very friendly, caring, proffesional and competent in the legal issues I was dealing with. I trusted him and I now feel he may have violated the rules of proffessional conduct
This is what he did::
1) He Shared confidential correspondence (from me to him) with the opposing party's attorney. I at this point asked that he not do this again without my consent.
Should I have had to ask ? Isnt this considered attorney client privledge?
2) He Sent email to the opposing partys attorney containing deragatory/defamitory statements about me then forwarded the same email to ME so I could see what he had written.
I found the email comments to be Very objectionable, unethical and that it showed a great lack of proffessionalism.
I would not recommend this attorney for any type of case as his proffessional (mis)conduct proves him untrustworthy.

Attorney Chavin has always been there when I needed to have questions answered. He has helped my family overcome some very challenging issues. He is the only attorney I know that is willing to work with his clients on every level. When he talks to you, it's as if you are speaking to a friend. He never over states anything, and keeps his communication on a laymans level. I would highly recommend anyone that is looking for an attorney, to consider Attorney Chavin. They wont be disappointed that they did.
