When he decided to become a lawyer, representing injured Ohioans was the obvious choice. From a single office, Attorney Chester has built a law firm with 16 offices located around the state of Ohio. His early life experience showed him that injured victims need compassion as well as competent, professional, aggressive representation. It is this philosophy that has defined attorney Chester and brought him the success he currently enjoys.

He obtained his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Cleveland State University College of Law, where he graduated 2nd in his law school class.
