Our Attorneys


If you require serious, first class legal representation regarding employment and civil rights issues, I would highly recommend, in the strongest possible terms, that you work with Attorney Chester. He is an extremely brilliant and talented Attorney and one of the finest people you will ever meet. I am fortunate and proud to have had Eric Chester as my Attorney.
