2020 did'nt stop him.
2020 was a crazy year that congested the court sysem. Mr. Chavez powered through my modification suit with positive results. I was grateful to have him spearhead my case then and to have him in my back pocket now.

Knowledgeable and involved
I hired Daniel Chavez after being hit by a truck while riding my motorcycle. I was concerned about handling the claim because the insurance used by the guy that hit me is notorious for simply refusing to pay claims and avoiding responsibility by any means necessary, but Daniel has been exactly what I needed every step of the way. He walked me through the likely process so I know what to expect, he has helped me obtain and properly organize all of my bills and expenses so they can be reimbursed, and he has coordinated with both my and the other insurance so all I've had to do throughout the whole process is focus on recovering. I would highly recommend Daniel for any legal issue and he will be the only lawyer I ever hire.

DANIEL IS AWESOME!!
I needed a will drawn up and a friend recommended Daniel. He was extremely professional; explained everything thoroughly and made sure I understood what each document said and meant before going on to the next. He did not rush me or make me feel pressured at all. It was a great experience for me all the way around.

Two Expunction Cases
I worked with Daniel on two expunctions and he took care of them both flawlessly. He was communicative, methodical and followed through for both cases. He did everything he said he would do and always set the reasonable expectations. I had no problems working with Daniel and would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Incredibly Efficient and Exceptional Attorney
For years I needed to change my last name but couldn't find a reasonable attorney to work with nor did I know where/how to get this done. Daniel went above and beyond to help me with this task and made the whole process very convenient for me. He exceeded my expectations by taking the time to understand my needs, researched all the necessary steps and paperwork and ultimately got the task done in a few days for a very reasonable price. I will continue to work with Daniel and GJ Chavez & Associates for all my legal needs - their attention to detail and customer service is second to none.
