Review Damon Chetson
  • Not knowledgeable in cases not involving DUI

    Anonymous review posted on

    I hired Chetson for a criminal case that was not DUI. Within a week, he was advising me to sell everything I owned including my home and be prepared to serve jail time. At this point, I had only met with him 2 times (1st was consultation) but he forced me to pay him $6K for the meetings. I felt that I need to find a new attorney since we had not even received discovery at this point. Good thing I fired him as my new attorney made sure I had a very successful outcome.

    I hired Damon after receiving a DWI charge last year in Garner. I remember the nerve-wrecking process of sorting through lawyers on Avvo. I'll be candid, (and you'll find Damon is also candid when doing business with him). His rate was slightly higher than the average. This made me apprehensive, but ultimately I found that Damon's commitment, skill, and professionalism were indispensable. It's a long process from your charge to your conviction, mine was approximately 10 months. I watched four other cases unfold in that period. There was never a question in my mind that I had the best lawyer. Damon was always on his game. Where I saw many other lawyers reply to the questions from the presiding judges and DA's with "um's" and "uh's," Damon had rehearsed answers with exact references to case precedent and procedure. My actual case lasted a little over two hours. When it was over, (ruling=not guilty) I heard the prosecuting DA mutter to a colleague "I wasn't expecting this case to go so long." It was clear this was due to Damon's familiarization with DWI charges. It's going to be a long road with any case in Wake country, and there are no guarantees, but Damon is someone you want in your corner. I told him before I even got the ruling that I would rate his services at 5/5 stars. He is known for bringing his A game.

    There are no words that can express the gratitude for the effort, diligence, and determination to obtain the best possible outcome for my case. I was amazed by his, his team, and associates knowledge, understanding, and efforts to research and interpretatuon of the law to protect me as.their client.

    Mr Chetson defended my son for a misdemeanor DWI and misdemeanor larceny charge. We feel the best possible outcome was achieved with the dismissal of the larceny charges. While he was convicted of the DWI he was not placed on probation, but instead Mr. Chetson reached an agreement with the DA and judge that my son would go into substance abuse treatment. I would highly recommend Mr. Chetson as an attorney.

    For the first time in my life I needed a lawyer to represent me. I was confused upset and felt lost about the entire legal process. As a matter of due dillagence I Consulted with three different law firms. I chose Damon Chetson because he was the only attorney who made me feel like a weight was lifted off my sholders. He understood my predicament and was able to immediately start my case. He was able to at the same time set realistic expectations and give me piece of mind. All of the sleep I didn't lose because I had Damon in my corner was with every penny that I paid. Even though my case was not setting legal precedent and could have been something of an after thought to other lawyers, my time always mattered to Damon. I would highly recommend this firm for not only the result I was able to get but I felt like I mattered and deserved the best representation when others just saw my time as easy money. For not only tell best result possible but because of the piece of mind you will have knowing you are in such good hands I highly recommend Damon .

    I first met Damon outside of his law practice when I became his flight instructor in 2012. Having given Damon flight instruction, I can say that he is a quick study, good listener, and has a high attention to detail. Since those first lessons I have spent enough time with him to see his dedication to the fair representation of his clients and his commitment to excellence professionally and personally. A couple of years ago I asked him for advice on a case. He not only gave advice, but took the case pro bono and settled it promptly, preventing further litigation and giving me a more favorable outcome than I was expecting or thought possible. I think one of the Damon's strengths is that he avoids making assumptions, and instead of forming a personal opinion, he investigates the merits of a case with an emphasis on the rights of the individual(s). This goes for the whole Chetson Firm. They are organized, approachable, and informative... and just darn good people. I highly recommend Damon and the Chetson Firm and wouldn't have anyone else defend me in the future.

    Damon is thorough, diligent, and passionate. He provided me guidance and advice about all of my legal questions. I know I probably asked the same questions over and over again, but each time, he took the time to patiently explain what I needed to know to set my mind at ease. He never judged me, he just did his job, and he did it exceptionally well.

    Damon is a straight shooter. Throughout my case, he was matter of fact and honest about his interpretation of my case, the possible outcomes, and the likely outcome. My case tracked step by step exactly as he predicted in terms of likely outcome, and I am of the firm belief that I got the fantastic outcome that I did because of his experience and hard work. Throughout the representation, I was well informed and felt that I was in great hands, which it terms out I was. Anyone that is in trouble with the law, I strongly recommend Damon.
