About Attorney Chevelle

“My experience has shown me that unprepared, unrepresented individuals lose, at a greater rate, when the other party is represented by an attorney. The Complaint I hear most is that,” I didn’t get a chance to speak” or “The Judge just believed everything the other side said.” Even worse, I watched a woman arrested after the Judge asked her to “present her case” and she did not know what to do or say. Everyone deserves the opportunity to be heard and the fact that you cannot afford or do not need to hire an attorney should have no bearing on that.”
