  • Andrew Jacob Diener

    I endorse Chuck due to his honesty, integrity and breadth of legal knowledge. Chuck is highly respected among his peers in our legal community. He is incredibly approachable and down-to-earth, which is not something one could say about all lawyers. He carries himself with confidence and a plain-spoken sensibility that I find refreshing and endearing.
