  • Brian Orr Sutter

    To those who practice in the field of workers compensation there are few who have the stature and recognition of Richard Chait. He is a giant among his peers. He not only understands the minute details of the law, he has been a tireless advocate in the courtroom and the political arena on behalf of his clients and injured workers throughout Florida. I would give Mr Chait the highest rating possible. These are the reasons he has been bestowed virtually every significant award invented in the Florida workers compensation community.
