What People Are Saying About The Chastaine Law Office
I retained Michael Chastaine to defend me against a temporary restraining order action. Having no experience with the court system, I was terrified about what this complaint meant for me and the implications of having it granted. At our initial consultation Mr. Chastaine quickly reviewed the complaint and listened carefully to my history of events leading up to this filing. He was extremely skilled in cutting to the chase of the details leading up to this event and articulating a defense strategy. While he never guaranteed a successful outcome, he was reassuring about being prepared and presenting a vigorous defense. In the weeks leading up the hearing, Mr. Chastaine was available by phone to talk with me when I had questions or concerns while at the same time investigating the allegations and preparing a comprehensive response to file with the court. He also spent considerable time with me the day before the hearing preparing me for my testimony and for the events to take place during the hearing. In court he was polished, articulate, and demonstrated mastery with questioning witnesses as well as court procedures and application of the law. He was successful in my defense, and I could not have gotten through this process without him. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael Chastaine to anyone seeking legal counsel.
I have had contact with Michael Chastaine on several occasions over the last ten years in relation to one legal matter and its subsequent complications. I have found him to be professional, well informed and helpful every time I have contacted him. I have never felt rushed or belittled. He has listened to my concerns and questions and given me honest answers and taken the time to explain them to me. I appreciate both his professionalism and his humanity and would recommend his services to anyone in need of legal assistance.
“Working with Mike turned out to be one of the best experiences I have ever had in the legal arena. He never led me to believe in false promises. He was a powerhouse and extremely impressive in the courtroom. And he treated me with the utmost respect throughout the months that we worked together.
