About Cheddi

Learn Cheddi’s areas of practice.

I strive to serve the legitimate interests of the public through competent, diligent, prompt and zealous legal guidance and counseling, with a keen emphasis on cultural sensitivity and coming up with innovative solutions at affordable costs. 

 

I seek to emphasize individualized, inclusive and humanistic client service in a manner that mitigates the ill-suited perception of the legal process as adversarial and conflict-driven, by focusing on resolution through compromise and the unification of parties riven asunder. In so doing, it is my hope that I will be able to carry on my grandparents, Cheddi and Janet Jagan's legacy of fighting relentlessly for the betterment of all.

Excellent lawyer
Mr. Jagan is a hardworking, trust worthy and reliable lawyer. My case with immigration wasn't an easy one, three lawyers turn me down but with Mr. Jagan encouragement, faith and hard work it was successful. I'm so happy. He was very honest. He always find the time to explain everything and help in anyway he could. I highly recommend Mr. Jagan. Thank you so much for all your help and being there for me. May God continue to bless you and to continue the great work you're doing.

Good reliable lawyer
I hired Cheddi knowing little about him. I took a chance on this young ambitious lawyer and it certainly paid off. He was very patient and understanding concerning our situation. He fulfilled his duty and surpassed our expectations. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a understanding and modern lawyer. He will work with you until your goal is accomplished.
