So grateful to have found Chuck Clay!
I am so grateful to have found Chuck Clay! I was having extreme water drainage problems created by a neighbor uphill from me that was concentrating all of their storm water onto my property. To complicate matters, the property was owned by a foreign government consulate. It was a difficult case but Chuck worked tirelessly to move the case forward and bring it to resolution. He kept me updated along the way. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Respected and Competent
I have previously hired Chuck as an Insurance Defense Attorney on multiple sports and recreations cases around the country. In this capacity, Chuck worked efficiently and managed the costs to help achieve successfully results that were mutually beneficial for the insured and the insurance carrier. Over his career Chuck has earned the respect of his peers and adversaries and we feel confident with his representation

Excellent Negotiator
I met Mr. Clay while he was working a case for company that we do business with. I was immediately impressed with his common sense approach to achieving the objective for his client. Since that time I have used Mr. Clay for all of my personal and business needs. Specifically he negotiated with the insurance company on my behalf in a personal injury case. He has worked several cases for my business that have saved thousands of dollars. Mr. Clay has a unique skill set and ability to gather the right information and use his experience and knowledge to get results for his clients. He puts his clients needs first and that is why I can confidently recommend his services to anyone.

Very Responsive, Very Helpful
Mr. Clay was referred to us after we lost a case due to another attorney's lack of understanding of our case and unwillingness to listen to our concerns. Very quickly Mr. Clay was able to address our loss and turn our case around which resulted in not having to pay any penalties or damages, something the first attorney clearly should have also been able to do when presented with the facts of the case. Since then I have referred him to several other members of the Heavy Towing & Recovery Industry who are being attacked by the same unethical "billing consultant" that we were. These cases have taken place all over the country and I know he has had great success fighting for them and all of us in this field. His level of responsiveness and knowledge is nothing short of impressive and I highly recommend him. If we have a problem in the future I will not settle for anyone else to represent my company.
