I searched for months before I was able to locate Chuck Farano and boy was I glad I did!  He has the trial experience that I needed and the willingness go to the mat if necessary.  At the same time, he was the most skillful negotiator I have ever encountered and I have dealt with attorneys in my business for over twenty years. D.S.
I was extremely pleased with the level of service delivered by Mr. Farano.  He was always well prepared and is absolutely fearless in the court room.  He explained all of my options to me in terms that I could understand so that I could make critical decisions about my case.  I could not have asked for a better result. G.L.
I would highly recommend Chuck Farano as an attorney in any litigation case.  He knows how and when to play hard ball and his instincts and sense of timing within the justice system is tremendous. A.H.
