  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. I have known Atttorney Chittur through NACA (the premier national organization of Consumer Law attorneys) for about 8 years and have read many of his to-the-point and accurate answers to consumer questions here on Avvo over the years. His web site has lots of info and he very clearly knows the Consumer Law in New York extremely well, including class action cases. I have great respect for him and his abilities - he cares about his clients and he cares about helping them find good solutions to their problems. I highly recommend him to you.
