I was having doubts with my given lawyer and decided to hire another one with more experience. I asked for help from my aunt and she found Mr. Andrew Cherkasky. When we spoke he gave me the confidence that I did not feel from my other lawyer. He did an absolute outstanding job defending me using his vast understanding of the law and paid attention to every detail. I would not be here today if it weren’t for him! The best lawyer I could have asked for!
Finding a lawyer is one of the worst things I've had to do in my life. Trying to find a lawyer is like trying to decide on cereal in the cereal aisle, it is a very frustrating experience. The options are endless, they all offer something different, some are good for you, and some are not. Thankfully after several days of research and calls I was blessed/guided to the services of Mr. Andy Cherkasky. Unlike the other firms I contacted that left me feeling anxious, confused and skeptical when I spoke with Mr. Cherkasky I knew within the first 5 minutes I was in good hands. I could not have asked for a more personable, honest, knowledgeable, fair, humorous, inclusive, charismatic, approachable, lawyer to represent me in my time of need.
Andy is Awesome! He has the unique ability of connecting with people in a way that is genuine and sincere. In my 2 years of working with him his commitment to me and my situation has not changed in the slightest. He always returns my calls/emails/facetime requests and he takes the time to clarify things that are heavy with legal jargon regardless of how long it takes. There were numerous situations where he went above and beyond to ensure I was not only received good service but phenomenal representation. He takes his job seriously; he has a knack for getting to the root of complex situations while keeping everything understandably simple.
Attention to detail, time management, and customer service are a few of the things I looked for in my search for representation…I found them and much more with Mr. Cherkasky. I was very impressed with the level professionalism and empathy in our initial conversation. Shortly after, I was awe-struck by the layout of his website and his information management/accounting processes. What you get from his site is the exactly what you get from him in person...#BestMilitaryLawer. His past military experience is invaluable, his knowledge of law and military law were judicious throughout. His physical appearance, organizational skills and punctuality aide in his ability to get his point across clearly and concisely. Cool, calm and collected. When situations aren't going his way he has a unique way of processing the situation, regrouping and addressing the issue effortlessly without any signs of stress or concern.
Mr. Cherkasky is extremely organized. He is totally up front with every aspect of his management of the case; his tracking system is state of the art. The number of hours applied to each phase of the process, the flights, hotels, rental cars etc; everything was clearly tracked and available for me to view. He literally has everything covered, not once did I have a reason to second guess his integrity which allowed me to focus on the well-being of my family and myself throughout. He is an amazing family man with a gorgeous wife that is also an attorney. The dynamic duo exemplifies teamwork, it is evident in the life balance and support they have for one another while building a beautiful family and staying in front of cases.
It is my pleasure to sincerely share my opinion and experience with Mr. Cherkasky. I literally could go on forever about how satisfied I am with his services...my family and I won’t ever be able to thank him enough for all that he has done to ensure I received the very best representation possible.
When I had a legal matter arise, I was confused, scared and lost. A friend recommended Andy and after our first conversation, I felt comfortable with the man I was talking with about my situation. Living overseas, he remained flexible and was very cognizant of my time. He was very honest with his assessment and assured me that he would work his tail off to defend me. His compassion and support to my family during the legal proceedings cannot be overlooked. After the conclusion of my proceedings, Andy still remained in contact with me after a few months just to see how I was doing. I had assumed that attorney's have a short memory and tend to forget there previous clients, but NOT with Andy. He had a huge impact in my life and allowed me to move on with closure of an unpleasant situation. I would recommend Andy and his services to anyone who was in a legal situation and needed insight. It was to this day, to hire Andy to represent me. God Bless!
Firstly, let me say 4000 characters is not nearly enough to give Andrew Cherkasky the praise he deserves. As a deployed member of the Air Force my life changed dramatically when I was informed I was being investigated for crimes I had no idea I had been committing. My circumstances were that of someone who was misinformed and naively took a NCOIC's word as law. My ADC had basically advised me that there was a very good chance that I would be convicted of all crimes I was being charged for. He believed I we be imprisioned for an extended period of time and that the prosecution had a very strong case against us. I was fortunate enough to have come across Mr. Cherkasky’s information online and requested a consult. Despite having other cases his response was very immediate. We were on the phone within a short time and speaking in detail about my situation. He provided me with assurances that he was skilled to handled the case and actually had several cases in the past which dealt with the same kind of situation. Upon taking the case he worked tirelessly to hold the JAG to due process and ensured my rights were being respected. His work schedule was almost unbelievable to me. With me being deployed he would take calls sometimes at 1 or 2 in the morning, then would wake the next day early and resume reviewing evidence. His knowledge of due process and the UCMJ was very impressive and he was able to completely answer every question I posed to him off the top of his head. We discussed in detail exactly what I needed to expect as things progressed forward. His goals and mine were completely aligned throughout the process and he was never shy to provided the kind of personal advice that my ADC shyed away from. The work he preformed was brilliant and he considered each aspect for the case from many viewpoints. He always listened to my suggestions and was never dismissive of my opinion despite my lack of judicial experience. He worked hard to ensure he was always moving forward in the direction I wanted him to. In my case I was exonerated of all charges and redeployed home. Once home there were still administrative issues to deal with. Even though much less was at stake once the charges were dropped, Mr. Cherkasky continued to work as an advisor and even reviewed all of my administrative paperwork. With regards to value... no matter what the cost you are getting his services at a bargain. His pricing was more competitive than any other lawyer I priced. If I hit the lottery I will definitely mail him a check to express my gratitude. Please contact me if you'd like and I can provide more information about Mr. Cherkasky's work ethic.
Mr. Cherkasky, is a great Military defense lawyer. He takes his time to evaluate each situation and then he gives you an honest opinion. I have worked with Andy for the past three months. Normally most lawyers would have become very frustrated with my situation because it was so drawn out. Andy made the necessary phone calls and did the necessay research, actually he put in more that the required work. His prices are very reasonable. Mr. Cherkasky has prior military experience and uses that experience to help every unique situation. What I mostly admired is the fact that he is always available when you call or email. I think he is very fair and sympathetic. My allegations were enough to get me out the military with the going rate of draw down across forces. However, I believe the advice and dedication that was put into my case helped me. Andy thinks in legal terms, he will tell you like he sees it. I believe if you chose Mr. Andrew Cherkasky to represent you, you will not regret the decision that you have made.
Andrew Cherkasky impressed me during our first phone conversation. I contacted five different law firms, twice, speaking with them at length regarding my concerns and situation. I put a lot of effort in to researching these different firms and chose Andy above all others. Andy was responsive, knowledgeable, and sympathetic throughout the process. He was available, 24/7, and always took the time to speak with me regarding my concerns and where we were at in the process. I quickly learned that he possess unmatched drive and determination. He attacks problems from all angles before settling on a course of action and plays each one out in great detail. The benefits of his actions were apparent long before we stepped foot in the hearing; amassing a sizeable defense file. He kept me informed and sought my input on all matters. During proceedings he was unleashed and fought for every inch; unwilling to yield to even the slightest jest from the prosecutors. He produced a favorable outcome for me and it's easy to say that I have the highest respect for his character and abilities. This is who you want in your corner.
