Damon Chetson and his team are some of the best legal professionals I have encountered. I was in need of legal representation and spoke with several attorneys. Damon took the time to review and discuss the details of my case and I felt confident he was the person I wanted to represent me.Damon and his staff kept me updated throughout the entire legal process. He clearly has a thorough understanding of the law and the legal processes. He answered every question I asked and I am very, very satisfied with the results of his efforts.I would recommend Damon Chetson to anyone in need of legal advice and representation.Thanks, Damon Chetson!

Damon Chetson came highly recommended from a few friends of mine. After seeing his efforts and him in action in the courtroom along with the outcome of the case, I absolutely recommend Mr. Chetson. He also took time out of his Sunday evening to answer questions and give advice. He is very genuine, straight up and honest.

Damon is probably the most honest, straightforward attorney I have worked with. My case was aviation related, he answered all my questions with great detail, and explained every option to me. I was able to make decisive choices based on his guidance. Thanks Damon!

Attorney Damon Chetson of The Chetson Firm in Raleigh is the best attorney I have ever used and the only law firm that I will ever consider in the future. Mr. Chetson took on my case which required a lot of time and preparation throughout the entire legal process. He was always thorough, and always in control of all of the many details involved in my case, was prepared and ahead of the possibilities in every part of the process. I can’t say enough about his commitment to his clients who are more than just a case number in a file. He takes the time to treat each case according to specifics needed for the very best outcome possible and aggressively goes after that for his clients. I am certainly pleased with the outcome of my case. I would recommend Damon Chetson to anyone who needs an attorney who will fight for them as if they were family.

The legal system is a labyrinth on its best days and seems specifically designed to torture people on its worst. Mr Chetson has enough optimism to keep looking for the best path forward and cynicism to avoid unnecessary missteps. He’s prepared, respectful, and has good professional rapport with the judges and prosecutors. He cares not just about his clients’ cases, but how the consequences of their interaction with the legal system affects and reflects on us all.
