Chiles and Prochnow, LLP, is a San Francisco Bay Area civil litigation firm. While we are experienced trial lawyers, we recognize that our clients need their lawyers to be both counselors and advocates. We pride ourselves not only on the results we achieve in court or at arbitration, but also on the disputes we resolve through negotiation or mediation. Good advice counts as much as great argument.
Our partners are AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest and most respected source of attorney peer review. Reserved for the top five percent of American lawyers, an AV-rating is the highest rating awarded. In addition, partner Robert Chiles is a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, an invitation-only distinction conferred upon fewer than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Robert has also been recognized repeatedly as a “Super Lawyer” by San Francisco Magazine’s rating of the Top Attorneys in Northern California. Kenneth Prochnow has recently achieved the milestone of 20 years of carrying his Martindale-Hubbell AV-rating.
Whether you face a question of insurance coverage in the Santa Clara County Superior Court, a will contest in the probate court in San Jose, a maritime claim in San Francisco, a trust dispute in Redwood City, or commercial litigation in state or federal court in Northern California, our lawyers have the knowledge, experience and reputation for forceful advocacy to provide effective representation, at a cost that we tailor to the importance of the matter.
We combine preeminent ranking with practical, personalized service. We welcome a chance to prove it.
