Legal Expertise with You in Mind


25 + Years Of Experience


Dedicated To Protecting Your Interests


Defending People Accused Of Every Type Of Crime



The lawyer you choose should be someone with experience, who is dedicated to protecting your interests, and who has a history of getting results.

When you have a serious legal problem, the most important choice you can make is what lawyer to hire. You wouldn’t buy a car by picking the first one you see for sale. Don’t choose a lawyer by contacting the first law firm you find online. Before you decide if a lawyer or law firm you pick is right for you, make sure that they have the experience, dedication, and a history of success.

At Tom Chaves Attorney at Law, we have over 25 years of experience in the fields of Criminal Defense, DWI/DUI and Personal Injury. We have the knowledge and proficiency to address your specific legal needs, whether you have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident or you have been charged with a crime or drunk driving. We have also worked with the Judges, Prosecutors, and other attorneys who will be involved with your case, and we are dedicated to putting our experience to work for you. At Tom Chaves Law, you will not be just another name in dusty filing cabinet. Attorney Tom Chaves will work on your case personally. We will not make promises we can’t keep, or pass your file along to a junior lawyer with insufficient experience to handle your case.

No matter what your question is, we understand that your case is serious and the consequences can be scary to think about. We will do our best to answer all of your questions, let you know what you can reasonably expect if you choose us to represent you, and work to get you results, like we have for others for over 25 years. Let us know what your legal problems are, and if we can help, we will.
