Sonia Perez-Chaisson was referred to me by two others that highly recommended her to handle my divorce. I feared and expected the worst, but what I didn't expect was how consoling and caring Attorney Sonia Perez-Chaisson was throughout my ordeal. She was able to answer my questions and reassure me of my legal rights. She is absolutely professional and easy to get in contact with. I espected to pay more but she was surprisingly affordable. Divorce doesn't have to be hell when you have a knowledgeable lawyer that treats you like a person. She is Knowledgeable, Affordable & Highly Recommended.
Sonia Chaisson was recommended to me by a lawyer and friend in NY. My daughter received an MIP in CA while away at college and I felt at a loss to help her from my home in NY. The two of them worked very comfortably together from the start. She was thorough and quick to respond to all concerns and questions. In our case, issues arose due to summer classes abroad. Sonia was there to advocate for and represent my daughter. Court dates were moved to a time when my daughter was back in LA. This required a long drive in the sweltering heat on her part, which says slot for her client dedication. Our case was small potatoes, but she still took the time and effort to do a superior job.
Ultimately, the fine was waived and the charge dismissed contingent on completion of a 6 hour class. My daughter is all the wiser for her mistakes. Meeting and working with Sonia was a valuable experience for my young adult. I would recommend her in a heart beat!
I have worked with many lawyers over the years It was a reassuring experience to have Ms. Chaisson handle two legal cases for my family. One was a complex civil matter and the other was criminal. The criminal matter was serious and could have resulted in long prison sentence. Ms. Chaisson was thorough, spent a lot of time with my family member who was unjustly accused of a crime. From the moment she was hired, Ms. Chaisson knew she was in for a challenge, however she worked hard on the law, had an excellent grasp of the facts, she explored every possibility, her communication was constant and clear, and eventually the case was dismissed by a judge.
On the second case, it was equally complicated and we initially chose a less expensive attorney. It was a costly mistake. I’m Happy to say Ms.Chaisson gave us the same level of service when we went back. While her rates might seem expensive at first, she is a hard worker and professional.
Ms.Chaisson who had to correct mistakes made by the prior attorney, again she spends an enormous amount of time preparing the case and was even willing to travel to a small town in Texas to successfully resolve the case. Ms. Chaisson is very direct, wiling to answer questions and demonstrates compassion while remaining professional. She is very sensitive to our needs it is great she took us on when we were very in need not only did she handle everything, but also made sure that I understood every aspect of the legal situation, she always returned my calls and answered every question I had. She is smart, aggressive and trustworthy. I highly recommend Sonia Chaisson, to anyone facing a difficult legal case, she is a terrific attorney.
I am grateful to have hired Sonia Chaisson who came highly recommended by a colleague of mine. I originally tried to handle the case on my own, I learned quickly that it was a big mistake to enter a courtroom without an attorney. Thankfully the judge allowed me to find one. Ms. Chaisson got my case in order Immediately. She was focused, straightforward, and direct. She explained the frustrating aspects of the legalities in plain English. It was no fun to deal with the stress of the court proceedings but with Ms. Chaisson's support I felt better able to face it.
Our judge commented on the record that Ms. Chaisson knows nothing about family law, the area in which she represented me.
