Highly recommend!
Ethan came highly recommended to us from a good friend. We had found ourselves in a peculiar real estate claim after discovering a mound of damage and rot to our home’s foundation that wasn’t disclosed in our sellers/buyer’s agreement. He was very honest with us that the bread and butter of his practice lied mostly in personal injury claims, but he had some experience in construction/real estate law as well. This was the first time my husband and I had ever had to hire a lawyer and we can honestly say that Ethan was wonderful. We didn’t get the expected outcome that we wanted with our claim, but to no fault of Ethan’s. The claim really was tricky, but we had to try. Ethan was not only honest and leading, but we felt comfortable with him. It was easy to work with him. He comes highly recommended from us! Thank you, Ethan! It was a pleasure working with you and we’ll be sure to keep you in mind if we ever need a lawyer again! George & Lindsey

Paralegal Internship
I interned under Ethan for roughly three months as a paralegal where I was able to get experience in the legal field in a way unlike any other internship could offer. Ethan cares deeply about his clients and helped to teach me that kind of mindset as well. I would definitely recommend him as the attorney to handle any type of personal injury claim and he was generous enough to give me a professional reference to help me land the job that I am at now. Ethan helped to inspire me to become a better legal professional and jumpstart my career. I cannot begin to thank him enough.

Representation that cares!
Ethan helped me through my car accident experience that happened in 2015. He did everything to help reduce my stress and make things easier on me. He would regularly check up on me just to make sure I was okay. Ethan will genuinely care about helping you! He is amazing and I would definitely recommend him!

Best of the Best Attorneys Around
Ethan is the best attorney I have came across, he helped me tremendously and I highly recommend Ethan. Ethan is very honest, upfront, cost effective and will help you out in any way he can. I highly recommend Chatov Law LLC!!

Trustworthy, upfront, and honest
I got into contact Ethan after receiving a small claims summons regarding a medical bill that went to collections that stemmed from a car accident. I left a message for Ethan on the first call to his office and received a call back within minutes. Even though I had a lawyer that had already worked this case, the first lawyer was not willing to help out with this matter. Ethan was very informative and went over all my options and what consequences could or could not happen and let me decide exactly how I wanted to proceed while still providing his opinion and knowledge on the situation. Throughout this case he consistently kept in contact via phone and/or email to make sure I was up to date with what was happening and always responded promptly to any questions or concerns. He really stepped up and went above and beyond to help me get this resolved in a very quick manner when my previous lawyer was unwilling/unable to help me. I would not hesitate to use his services again, as well as refer any friend or family to his office.

Great representation.
Ethan took a case for me in October of 2013. By the summer of 2014 we settled out of court. I was happy with the outcome and would not have been able to achieve this without the assistance of Ethan Chatov. Ethan is professional, confident, diligent and follows through. I would recommend Ethan to any prospective client.

Highly recommend
I have worked with Ethan Chatov with two different cases now and I have been completely satisfied with the end results of his work. He is professional, understanding and a pleasure to work with. Ethan really goes to bat for you no matter the significance of the issue at hand. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great attorney who will strive to come through for their client.
