Thank god for David !
On December 15, 2019 I was hit by a van while crossing the street and suffered severe injuries. Thankfully David Chonin guided me through the entire process. He was always available to answer my questions and concerns. He is an excellent attorney and if you or a loved one are ever injured because of someone’s negligence I highly recommend the Law Offices of Brian Breiter.

Excellent Attorney
If you are looking for a civil attorney look no more. I can’t say enough about David. We hired him last year to represent us with a federal ADA law suit. He did a great job and most importantly he had the patience to deal and explain things so that we could understand. I can’t say enough about the service he provided. Thank you David.

Amazing Litigator!
David Chonin is an amazing litigator and I am very grateful to him and the matter in which he handled my personal injury case. Having an attorney like David Chonin makes all the difference. He genuinely cared about my case, my well being and fought hard to get the compensation my family deserved.

David Chonin attorney
David first represented me when I was injured while riding my bike. A car ran me off the road and I was severely injured. We were ready to go to trial when David was able to negotiate a settlement that fairly compensated me. Thanks

Brother beaten by 11 officers and taser 26 times for running from a college campus party
My family interviewed David. David promised to take care of my brother. My husband is a police training officer, was a paramedic for 15 years and search and rescue hospital corpsman in the military for 15 years. With his training and medical background he was able to breakdown the affidavits of all of the officers and point out inconsistent testimony. We handed over the folders of organized data, lists of college campus witnesses and their contact information, taser download information and police reports. My brother had been tased while strapped down in and ambulance and while strapped down in the hospital. It was an horrific experience that resulted in broken bones and blood filled in the white portion of his eyes. My husband is a taser instructor and was able to point out everything that had done wrong by each officer after cross checking the taster download data and cross checking it with officer testimony. We handed our organized box of information over to David and checked in from time to time on his progress. David never did anything. After more than a year we received all of the evidence in a box with a note that said the statute of limitations had expired and we lost our right to pursue the case. David is untrustworthy and inept. I would not recommend him to any person. We were completely let down. My brother was denied justice after being almost killed by the untrained police officers for running from police on a college campus who came to a party he was at. The punishment didn't fit the simple crime.

Response from David Chonin August 23, 2016
This review is a mischaracterization of the case. I investigated the case and after review it was apparent that a lawyer in Sarasota (where the incident took place) could better handle the matter. The file was returned to the client 8 months prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations. In my 21 years of practice I have never blown a statute of limitations, nor would I ever. I even placed the City of Sarasota on notice as is required by Florida Statute. David Chonin
