Thanks for everything
I have used Attorney Chuck on many cases. He was able to beat a felony criminal charge for me and got a federal criminal case dismissed for my family. When I got in a wreck he got me limits from the insurance company. I refer him to everyone I know with legal issues. If he does not do it he will refer you to someone that can.

One of the best in the business
Attorney Egbuonu is highly skilled, efficient, and a true advocate for those he represents. He took on a very sensitive matter for me and worked diligently to ensure a fair and equitable outcome. Attorney Egbuonu walked me through each step and was very communicative about my case progression along with what to expect. He showed great professionalism and I would recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney that will fight with the upmost professionalism on their behalf.

Hardworking, Knowledgable and a Go Getter
Chuck has never seemed to disappoint when it has come to my cases or the many people I have referred him too. He is very interactive with his clients and leaves no stones unturned when it comes to his cases. Chuck will do anything in his power to ensure you get the best possible results. In my cases, Chuck has fully explained the case before hand and what will be the best approach moving forward to win the case. He will be 100% honest with you which is hard to find with a lot of attorneys these days. Most of all, Chuck is a Go Getter, he refuses to settle for anything less then what he or the law says you deserve. Chuck has won six figured settlements for clients I referred him too and before speaking with Chuck, the clients didn't even know they were entitled to take legal actions against there employers. Chuck is a tremendous, reputable and passionate attorney who will strive to do the very best for all his clients. I highly recommend Chuck and stand behind his work as a licensed lawyer.

I was very sick and hired Attorney Egbuonu to handle an over payment case. I paid $1500. That’s all I could afford and he agreed to handle the encase for that. It was not a retainer fee. However, he wrote a contract he could switch to favor him. He did not tell me the truth when I asked questions about it. He sent an employment letter opposing company, called the company ‘s wrong department number 3 times after being told, was told multiple times to send a release of information ( he was given one right at the beginning), and at the end when he finally sent one, he did nothing with the information. The opposing company sent him the bill and he told opposing company to send the bill to me. I had two letters from opposing company substantiating what I said. I made a complaint against him with the Office of Disciplinary Counsel saying they found nothing wrong with his professional behaviors. So, I’m saying please do not hire this unprofessional, lazy, untruthful lawyer.

"I have worked on numerous cases with Attorney Egbuonu. His expertise coupled with the relationships he has built in this field of law has proven to be monumental and has led to numerous successful verdicts and settlements for his clients."
Employment and labor Attorney | Aug 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chuck is a very intelligent and aggressive attorney that strives to get his clients the settlements they deserve. Chuck is very knowledgeable about employment law, as well as criminal law. I have known Chuck since law school and whenever I have questions about my cases, he never hesitates to help and give me advice. I am aware of numerous employment law settlements, and criminal defense dismissals that Chuck has obtained for his clients. I highly recommend Chuck for employment law cases, as well as criminal defense cases."
