    • I recommend Michael Chastaine.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I retained the Chastaine law firm to help me with an arrest on flimsy grounds. Mike and his associate Jake got my arrest expunged from the record - and did a great job at getting everything filed to make that happen, and guiding me through the court process.

    • I recommend Michael Chastaine.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    The Chastaine Law Office is the only law firm I will go to for any of my legal needs. They represented me in a recent case and achieved everything I was hoping to accomplish. Their knowledge of the law, dedication, and hard work made it possible to resolve issues I wished to leave in the past. From start to finished, they kept me informed concerning the progress of my case.

    • I recommend Michael Chastaine.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Elder Law matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I retained Michael Chastaine to defend me against a temporary restraining order action. Having zero experience with the court system, I was terrified about what this complaint meant for me and the implications of having it granted. At our initial consultation Mr. Chastaine quickly reviewed the complaint and listened carefully to my history of events leading up to this filing, cutting to the chase of the details leading up to this event . While never guaranteeing a successful outcome, he was reassuring about being prepared and presenting a vigorous defense. In the weeks leading up the hearing, Mr. Chastaine was available by phone to talk with me when I had questions or concerns while at the same time investigating the allegations and preparing an appropriate response to file with the court. He also spent considerable time preparing me for my testimony and for the scheduled hearing. In court he was polished, articulate, and demonstrated mastery with questioning witnesses as well as court procedures and application of the law. He was successful in my defense, and I know I could not have gotten through this process without him. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael Chastaine to anyone seeking legal counsel.

    Over the years, we have used several different lawyers due to distinctive needs we had - real estate, tax, etc. There is no question that Michael Chastaine is at the top of the list in his field. He did an excellent job winning our case. There was never a time when he was not available to take a call - even giving us his cell phone number. When faced with a criminal charge, having your lawyer available and communicative to you is probably the single most important reassurance one can have. He is the finest in his profession and we will be eternally grateful for his outstanding work.
