Awards & Recognitions
I recommend George Chakmakis.
I used George 6-12 months ago.
George handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.
George was able to obtain a favorable settlement in a difficult contingency fee auto accident case that many other lawyers refused to even take on. He knows what he is doing, is an effective tactician, polite and courteous, and communicates well. On top of that he is chivalrous and brave. He is my first choice for prosecuting a civil liability claim.
My husband and I were in a serious car accident when I was five months pregnant. While initially I hadn’t planned on using an attorney, a family member recommended I contact George before making any decisions and I am so grateful that I did!
Being in an accident is scary and stressful enough in and of itself, and adding a pregnancy to it only adds to that stress. Not only did I have no idea what the protocol was or what steps to take following the accident, I was also incredibly concerned about my baby. As soon as I spoke to George, I knew that having him represent me and handle things was without a doubt the best thing I could do. George was extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and guided me every step of the way. His friendly demeanor and genuine care and concern reassured me that I made the right choice.
More than a year has passed since my accident and I still believe that having George represent me was the best decision I could have made. I cannot thank him enough and would recommend him to anyone looking for legal help.
While I was told that my expenses would never have been reimbursed from a three car pile up on the 10, George made it happen! Through persistence and general respect he has garnered over the years doing this work, he was successful. I so appreciate his help, honesty, and calm approach. Thank you
George and his partner Matt are absolutely wonderful and trustworthy lawyers. They explain everything to you clearly and make sure you understand the process ahead of time.

I cannot say enough great things about them and I have and will continue to recommend them to friends/ family who are seeking legal assistance. George and Matt are professionals and will keep you updated every step of the way. I found them by chance when I was searching for a lawyer online and am so grateful I did.

November 5, 2013, Bob was George’s client .
George has been a trusted advisor for many years. I am an entrepreneur and I usually want quick advise for a new opportuntity or idea. Opportunities come and go quickly so it’s important to have a trusted advisor who not only understands your business but your personality as well. I highly recommend George as a not only an excellent lawyer but a trusted advisor.
We have worked with George since back in 2006. He has always been very professional and consistent with his excellent work. He helped us effectively set up corporations, researched important legal matters, consulted us on difficult decisions and essentially proved himself over the years. I recommend him to anyone serious about going into business. He is always accessible via e-mail and phone which is a lot more than I can say for other lawyers I’ve dealt with. You are in good hands with George Chakmakis, we are grateful to have been referred to him.
I have known George for 25+ years and used him for both business and personal. He has always done a great job and represents me and my company very well. I used him from formation to sale of my company and everything in between. He is someone that I truly trust and has a high level of integrity
I’ve worked with George for over a decade and have found him to be highly knowledgeable and possessing of the extra creativity that sets him apart from most attorneys I know. I have always found his advice to be exceptional, and I think of him as being very well rounded because of his mindfulness to important details. George is very diplomatic and charming but brings out the “Bulldog” when appropriate.
George is a tenacious and intelligent person to have on your side in a courtroom. He also takes the time to learn about your unique case and then, explain the options in a thoroughly, yet in a way any layperson can understand. Highly recommended for your business needs.
I hired George to help me Copyright and Trademark a product that I was developing. Since I am quite busy and not familiar with all the nuances of the law, I decided that I needed an attorney. George had helped out some friends of mine with their business. He was able to negotiate a “do-able” fee for me, and accomplished what I needed in a short period of time. His office is also centrally located in Beverly Hills which is convenient.
George was a true professional!
After being involved in an auto accident with a very unique scenario, I needed to consult with a good, and experienced lawyer. After asking around I was referred to George Chakmakis. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable on my type of case and ended up guiding me in the right direction. Although he didn’t end up representing me as a lawyer, the advice I received eventually resolved my problem
One of the most effective Attorneys we have ever used. My Business partner and I have used George for all our business and legal needs since 1999 and during that period he has consistently been able to accomplish every task, timeline and request we have asked of him in an expeditious manner..
However, what’s truly important to us is that George and his staff are dedicated and loyal to the client and not simply trying to rack up hours like many other attorneys. He is not only knowledgeable but genuinely cares about the client and has treated each one of the situations we have asked him for help with as though it was his own business..
George and his staff are thoroughly aggressive when he needs to be (Or more importantly…when it counts) yet he always maintains his professionalism.

My husband and I were being harassed by our condo HOA re: our emotional support animal (ESA) being over the building’s weight limit. One board member even reported a fake incident asserting he violently attacked her to initiate HOA’s efforts against us. While we had personally defended our incredibly well-behaved ESA & provided board with various state & federal legislation supporting our animal residing with us, as well as the prescribing doctor’s letter explaining need for service dog, (the latter being the only true requirement for an ESA who is over building weight limit), the HOA was still illegally demanding removal of dog. We clearly needed someone with a legal background to get our points across, ideally via a simple cease & desist letter, as we had no desire to sue the HOA, which would only penalize our neighbors most of whom are sane, friendly and not supporting the Board’s actions in this matter. Amidst a sea of lawyers requesting aggressively large retainers up front, George Chakmakis stood out permitting us to pay an appropriate fee to discuss matter in person & then write requested letter. Within a few days of our meeting, George sent our HOA a well-worded letter introducing himself representing us in matter, effectively ceasing the Board from directly harassing us. He concisely detailed the laws protecting us and where the HOA had violated our rights. Chakmakis demanded withdrawal of HOA’s demand for removal of ESA and all penalties they had placed on us. He firmly stated that we will initiate legal procedures unless they complied in writing, seeking punitive damages, reimbursement for interest, costs and attorney’s fees. Pleased to say we received confirmation that the matter has been dropped as a result of our attorney, George Chakmakis’s effective and thorough work. Should we ever need help in future legal matters, he will certainly be our first call. He’s an honest, hardworking, knowledgeable attorney. George examines the full picture and legitimately sees clients as individuals, who he can guide and advocate for, versus simply craft into a hearty meal ticket. He has earned our trust.
I recently started my own business. Chakmakis & Associates formed my corporation and provided business and legal advice regarding, employment contracts, my lease, and vendor contracts. I would have been lost without them. They are extremely knowledgeable and willing to spend time with you to make sure that everything is done properly.
I have known George in a professional capacity for over 10 years and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a standout negotiator and aggressive litigator. George cares about understanding his clients needs and develops the tailored strategy necessary to obtain outstanding results and excellent settlements. I unequivocally endorse George for his professionalism, interpersonal skills, and ability to see the big picture on complex legal issues. George will get the job done and exceed expectations.
