I had a very emotional case of trust fraud. My brother stole all of my inheritance and Denise handled this with honesty, patience and willingness to see justice prevail. Eventually it finally did. Could never have gone through this process without her!!!

We retained Denise to negotiate a settlement agreement for my son's estate after he passed away Christmas Day 2011. We hired her because she assured us, given all the facts of the situation, that she could help us avoid probate. Out of the many attorneys we spoke with this was the key motivation for retaining Denise. Our main goal was to save our family the pain of a lengthy legal process after our loss.
Her first recommendation to us after receiving a retainer was to file for probate. Her actions during a very sensitive turning point cost all of us dearly, in legal fees and in emotional health. She alienated the parties by bolstering the party's attorney rather than proposing a settlement agreement.
We canceled our retainer check. To make matters worse she is actually going to take my living son and I to small claims court over $2500.
After the loss of my son.... the worst decision I made was talking to this firm and to Denise Chambliss.

Denise E Chambliss came highly recommended by an associate, and I am pleased to be able to pass on a similar recommendation.
I had a client that was refusing to settle their account and I was facing a fairly substantial business loss. I hired Ms Chabliss to collect the money owed.
Ms Chambliss was thorough, personable and realistic, offering what I believe was the best course of action throughout the process.
Upon conclusion of the matter, she followed up with some information that will help my company avoid a similar situation in the future.
I highly recommend her work.
