Great experience
Mr. Chauncey was hired to handle my bankruptcy. As this being a pretty big step for me and a scary one as well, it made me pretty nervous to take this step. From the time I contacted his office I felt less nervous each time I talked to either him or his secretary. On the day of meeting with Mr. Chauncey I really felt like he cared about me and had compassion for my situation and the reasons for my bankruptcy. Even though we hit a few bumpy roads along the way of taking care of matters he never once forgot that I was an actual person and he was very kind even when it seemed to me like the bankruptcy might not happen. Of course he reassured me everything would be ok and to with his expertise and knowledge it did turn out great and everything was fine. He always made sure to update me with any new information even if it was after hours. Mr Chauncey is a very nice, wonderful, smart, and knowledgeable lawyer that I would greatly recommend to anyone needing someone that will get the job done to the best of his ability. Thank you Mr. Chauncey

Divirce proceedings
I hired him for my divorce. He is not like most Lawyers. When you talk to him he listens. I am hiring his wfe to do my estate planning. He is very professional but laid back too. This Law firm is the best I have ever come in contact with. I would advise anyone to hire these good people for their legal needs. Thank you, Chauncy Law Firm.
