The firm was established in 1996, after Mr. Chakmakian left a well respected plaintiff’s firm to open his own office. His first “seven figure” verdict was obtained one year later and, since that time, he has won many seven figure verdicts and settlements, a claim few lawyers can make. These include many cases published in the New York Law Journal and the New York Jury Verdict Reporter.
