    • I recommend George Chakmakis.

    George and his partner Matt are absolutely wonderful and trustworthy lawyers. They explain everything to you clearly and make sure you understand the process ahead of time. They are quick to get results and will work very hard to make sure you win your case. I cannot say enough great things about them and I have and will continue to recommend them to friends/ family who are seeking legal assistance. George and Matt are professionals and will keep you updated every step of the way. I found them by chance when I was searching for a lawyer online and am so grateful I did. They are absolute experts in their field!

    • I recommend George Chakmakis.
    • I hired George 1-3 years ago.
    • George handled my Discrimination matter.

    My husband and I were being harassed by our condo HOA re: our emotional support animal (ESA) being over the building's weight limit. One board member even reported a fake incident asserting he violently attacked her to initiate HOA's efforts against us. While we had personally defended our incredibly well-behaved ESA & provided board with various state & federal legislation supporting our animal residing with us, as well as the prescribing doctor's letter explaining need for service dog, (the latter being the only true requirement for an ESA who is over building weight limit), the HOA was still illegally demanding removal of dog. We clearly needed someone with a legal background to get our points across, ideally via a simple cease & desist letter, as we had no desire to sue the HOA, which would only penalize our neighbors most of whom are sane, friendly and not supporting the Board's actions in this matter.

    Amidst a sea of lawyers requesting aggressively large retainers up front, George Chakmakis stood out permitting us to pay an appropriate fee to discuss matter in person & then write requested letter. Within a few days of our meeting, George sent our HOA a well-worded letter introducing himself representing us in matter, effectively ceasing the Board from directly harassing us. He concisely detailed the laws protecting us and where the HOA had violated our rights. Chakmakis demanded withdrawal of HOA's demand for removal of ESA and all penalties they had placed on us. He firmly stated that we will initiate legal procedures unless they complied in writing, seeking punitive damages, reimbursement for interest, costs and attorney's fees.

    Pleased to say we received confirmation that the matter has been dropped as a result of our attorney, George Chakmakis's effective and thorough work. Should we ever need help in future legal matters, he will certainly be our first call. He's an honest, hardworking, knowledgeable attorney. George examines the full picture and legitimately sees clients as individuals, who he can guide and advocate for, versus simply craft into a hearty meal ticket. He has earned our trust.

    • George handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    George was able to obtain a favorable settlement in a difficult contingency fee auto accident case that many other lawyers refused to even take on. He knows what he is doing, is an effective tactician, polite and courteous, and communicates well. On top of that he is chivalrous and brave. He is my first choice for prosecuting a civil liability claim.

    We have worked with George since back in 2006. He has always been very professional and consistent with his excellent work. He helped us effectively set up corporations, researched important legal matters, consulted us on difficult decisions and essentially proved himself over the years. I recommend him to anyone serious about going into business. He is always accessible via e-mail and phone which is a lot more than I can say for other lawyers I've dealt with. You are in good hands with George Chakmakis, we are grateful to have been referred to him.

    • George handled my Business matter.

    I've worked with George for over a decade and have found him to be highly knowledgeable and possessing of the extra creativity that sets him apart from most attorneys I know. I have always found his advice to be exceptional, and I think of him as being very well rounded because of his mindfulness to important details. George is very diplomatic and charming but brings out the "Bulldog" when appropriate.

    I would proudly recommend George to anybody that I know.
