A solid professional
Mr. Chiaia represented me in traffic court in an out-of-state matter. He was proactive and very effective, reducing my potential liability by 95%. John is a lawyer you can rely on, and I recommend him highly.

Professional service and personal attention
I have used John Chiaia for 2 real-estate closings and a business transaction. Each instance was handled professionally and timely. He worked easily with the other professionals involved in the transaction to ensure we closed on schedule. When I interacted with John, I always felt like I was his only client and he took the time to explain and review all documents until I was comfortable with their content. I felt confident with John reviewing everything and advising me as to the best course of action. I highly recommend using John for your legal needs.

A CPA's review of a great attorney

A man that's beyond a great attorney!
Mr. Chiaia has a vast knoledgement as small as personal litigation and as large as corporate environmental litigation. These days a lawyer needs to wear many hats and I think Mr. Chiaia has handled all issues appropriately and professionally.
