The passion of Mr. Chernoff's legal practice is based on building strong relationships with his clients. He believes this is the cornerstone of his profession, and many former clients consider Mr. Chernoff to be a savior and friend.
For years, Mr. Chernoff represented clients charged with criminal offenses. He handled many high profile cases, including cases in other states. He became Board Certified in 2005, and licensed to practice law in California and Texas. He was elected as a Super Lawyer in 2012 and was named a go-to attorney by H Texas.
Frequently he was asked to help in Family Law matters because of his litigation expertise. A few years ago Mr. Chernoff began handling Family Law cases. His referrals came in a flood until half of his practice became devoted to these types of cases.
He is now well known in Family Court as a tenacious and persistent foe. He consistently represents clients who are going through a divorce or are fighting for custody of their children.

I had the privilege of working for Ed as a young law clerk the summer after taking my bar exam. He is not only hard working and talented at his craft, but he genuinely cares about his clients. He is a phenomenal advocate.
