Jim Chalat (and Firm) — Outstanding In Every Way!

I was a Broadway performer, injured on the ski slopes of Aspen while on vacation -- one day seemingly on top of the world, the next day without a leg to stand on. With a limb and career in tatters, Jim Chalat (and his wife Linda and their firm) gave me a powerful legal leg to stand on and so very much more. From the first moment we connected, they handled my long-distance case with skill, passion, compassion, acute understanding of the law, flawless attention to detail, and a manner that was both personal yet impeccably professional. The positive outcome my case (which went to trial) received can be directly attributed to their hard work, foresight, perseverance, and great skill. Jim is a leader, a talented one, not just of an excellent law firm, or in a courtroom handling a case, but he is a leader in his field. Tested through time, Jim Chalat is outstanding in every way and I recommend him without reservation.Katie, a Personal Injury client
