I hired Damon Cheronis to represent me in a case that affected my life tremendously. Being indicted in a criminal case is one of the worse things that can happen to a doctor. Initially I was hesitant with him on board but he has been with me now for more than 5 years and there has not been a moment of regret. From the beginning Damon gave me a realistic picture of the outcomes and counselled me to have patience and faith in him. He addressed multiple aspects of my complex case and interfaced with attorneys from different areas to help me. He has been a rock of support not only for me but also for my spouse and family. He is a fantastic attorney delivering on the results he promises you on the first day. He goes out of his way to handle situations for the client. His availability 24×7 was a key to my peace of mind. Damon is a thorough gentleman and his negotiation skills are astute. One thing I liked a lot about Damon is that he knows the case well and remembers the small details well. I think that is a key component to a successful outcome. At my trial he impressively argued and convinced the judge for a favorable outcome. I do not wish this on myself or anybody else but if I ever need an attorney it will be Damon Cheronis. And I strongly recommend him to all out there seeking an honest opinion and a good outcome.

Damon, is a lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. He was totally prepared for the case so he was never surprised by the prosecutions evidence or arguments. He and was able to put the prosecutors in a defensive mode. He was by far the best attorney in the court room. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

From possible 2 felony, down to misdemeanor and no incarceration facing criminal charges is probably the most frightening thing I have ever faced. I had no idea who to turn to. When I contacted Damon, I immediately felt more at ease. He was both counselor and, though I am embarrassed to admit, comforter at times. The most important part about hiring an attorney is his or her meticulous preparation of your defense; Damon does this job very well. However, the most fearful part of all of this is the uncertainty around everything and Damon is ALSO someone that helped me feel assured that what could be done was actually done, and that I was in good hands. If this latter part is important to you, as it was to me, I would turn to no other.

Results are everything! Damon saved my life! I was arrested and faced a minimum of 20 years in prison when i hired Damon to represent me. A government informant with decades of experience targeted me and utilized all of his skills to ruin my life. Nobody likes a lawyer until you need one, a lawyer is going to lunch you’re going to jail. All these clichés go through your head when your life is on the line. Damon is the best in the business. He is easily one of the top five criminal defense attorneys in the business. He is in it to win not to be on T.V. or for his own ego. This guy lives and breathes criminal defense work. I agree with a lot of the other reviewer’s assessments. I am living proof that the right lawyer can make all the difference in the world. I am able to see my child grow up and able to run a successful business because of Damon Cheronis. Hire him and do what he tells you that is my advice! Words cannot describe my appreciation for what this lawyer has done for me!

My husband was facing criminal charges which were a result of false conspiracy drug accusations. These were Federal charges which could have resulted in multiple years in prison. My husband was arrested and I was devastated. A family friend connected me to a lawyer, but he was not able to assist as this was a federal case. The lawyer connected me to Damon Cheronis who stated he would be able to help me. I remember receiving the call from Damon. I was crying hysterically trying to explain my husband being arrested. Damon was so patient, kind and was able to calm me down by reassuring me that he would help my husband with his criminal case. Damon is a kind hearted, honest, has excellent communication skills and a very intelligent man. He never sugar-coated anything and explained all of the options in regards to the case to my husband and I. My husband chose to go to trial because he and I truly believed Damon would win the case. I was able to witness firsthand how aggressive and passionate Damon was in defending my husband in court. He persuaded the tribunal to accept his interpretation of the facts and the law. Damon is very well respected by many in his field. I would highly recommend him to handle your case. For those who only speak Spanish, like my husband, do not be discouraged to reach out to Damon Cheronis to handle your case. Because of this man’s hard work and integrity, my husband is now a free man. Damon Cheronis won my husband’s case against the government and my husband was found not guilty. If you need a professional, experienced, respectable, and knowledgeable lawyer who can help you win the case, Damon Cheronis is the one for you.

A veteran of many high profile federal and state cases, clients are often surprised by how approachable they find Damon. But having seen him at trial dozens of times over the years, I can attest to his powerful motions practice, ability to conduct relentless cross-examinations, and give moving openings/closings. With personal and professional qualities that make him easy to work with – and hard to work against – anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney would be in great hands with Damon Cheronis.

Being indicted I can tell you is the one of the worst events that can ever happen in your life. Then you seek answers and in my case I was very confused, did not know who to trust, how did this happen? You get depressed, your feel a great deal of humiliation and sadness for what this will mean to your family, your future. In my case a pretty high profile one so it was in the media. I was appointed a public defender and I understand they have huge workloads and really could not give me the attention I felt was needed. Ok soooo along with that now you’re scared because no one was listening. The only thing I was told is how many years I was going to prison for, never a you’re not guilty or even Innocent till proven guilty . After meeting with 3 or 4 other defense lawyers (well they said they were) a another lawyer friend referred me to Mr. Cheronis. Damon was the first lawyer that took the time and listened and I mean really listened. He asked questions and he did not assume he knew the answers and I must say after the first hour or so (ohhhh and he listened before I retained him) I knew that this man was a Defense Attorney and real one ! As the months went by Damon always had my best interest in mind till the very end and still till this day. Damon took the time and explained to me every procedure and helped me make the decisions that was best for my situation. If you’re looking for a caring real defense attorney who will work with you and for you, look no further Damon Cheronis . I thank God every day that I found him and pray that I will never need him again: ) . That being said he is a Good Man. I have so much more to say but whomever may be reading this it may come off as a paid ad. Paid for by the Citizens to Elect Damon for whatever the hell wants to run for. Try to keep your humor out there friends it helps.

Very professional, always pays attention to detail and hungry to fight for his clients. The price I paid does come close to how hard he works. More than just and attorney! I definitely would recommend Damon to anyone I knew who needed a good attorney.
