Why You Should Choose the Law Office of David Chesley:
The Chesley Difference
Mr. Chesley is a tireless advocate for his clients. Mr. Chesley and his team are among the best in the business when facing prosecutors, but he is also one of the best when it comes to working with his clients.
Mr. Chesley and his team understand the worry and fear you and your family are dealing with. They know that you never imagined yourself in this situation, and you don’t know what to do. They also understand that the scandal from an unproven allegation (even a minor charge such as shoplifting) may have devastating consequences that go far beyond any formal sanction.
That’s why Mr. Chesley personally supervises every case his firm represents. He gives you the personal dedication and engagement you need, so you never feel like you’re going through this alone. At the same time, everyone on Mr. Chesley’s team acts with great professionalism and the utmost discretion, and they work to resolve every matter as quickly as possible.
Mr. Chesley and his team are available to you, literally 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
White-collar crimes refer to acts that lead to unlawful financial gain. Prosecuted under either state or federal law, white-collar crimes include tax fraud, securities fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, cybercrime, and identity theft.
It is essential to have a criminal defense lawyer at your side for a white-collar crime as soon as possible. Because reputation is everything for the white-collar defendant, prosecutors often look to end the case with a quietly negotiated plea bargain before they’ve filed charges in the first place.
But compared to other crimes, white-collar cases may require in-depth examination and forensic accounting of financial records, statements, corporate filings, correspondence, and much more. Therefore, the sooner you obtain counsel, the more time your lawyers have to learn the relevant facts, assess your potential liability, and develop a sound defense strategy.
The Law Office of David Chesley’s experienced defense counsel and in-house investigators are ready to help you at every step of your white-collar defense, from discovery to a prosecution’s proffer and plea negotiations to trial.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Related Offenses
As a member of the California DUI Lawyers Association and the National College for DUI Defense, Mr. Chesley is a certified expert in DUI defense, and it shows. Ninety-five percent (95%) of his DUI clients receive no jail time.
DUI defense expertise is essential in California. The state aggressively pursues those who are “driving under the influence” (DUI), and Century City is no exception in that pursuit. In addition to its regular DUI enforcement, the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau frequently has DUI checkpoints and roving DUI saturation patrols in the Century City area.
California DUI convictions carry severe penalties, ranging from fines and license suspension to community service, probation, and prison. DUI convictions also may require participation in alcohol programs, installation of ignition lock devices, and restitution.
The Automobile Club of California estimates that, between fines, penalties, increases in insurance premiums, and other costs, a first-offense DUI misdemeanor conviction will cost approximately $15,688 for an adult 21 and over, while a first DUI conviction for a minor (under the age of 21) will be $22,500.

I am truly pleased with my experience with the Law Offices Of David S Chesley. They answered all my questions and provided me with great advice and legal services. My case resolved quickly. Thank you!
I left court yesterday with my last case being wrapped up. Two court appearances and that’s it. He represented me in a couple of different cases and was impressive to say the least. Always a phone call or text message away. Confident and aggressive when he needed to be. Calming and thorough when meeting with me. Attorney Chesley did exactly what he said he would and I got the results I needed. He seemed to know all the right people at the Temple Street courthouse. You can always get in contact with him quickly and he is a great lawyer. I highly recommend his legal services.
My brother was given a very caring attorney that was assigned to his case and we had very helpful case managers throughout the process. I strongly recommend David Chesley to anyone who is in trouble. I called in to get help on my brothers case and right away I liked their service. My brothers charges were eventually dismissed after the attorney got him into a program, now he could go on without the trouble of having anything on his record
I retained Mr. Chesley and his firm and from the beginning they were extremely professional both in communicating the status of my case to me, explaining the situation as a whole, and just downright taking care of business. It was money well spent for a job well done. Thanks again to David and Melissa others that worked on my case. I recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Don’t just accept things the courts force on you, call this firm and protect yourself.
I contacted Mr. Chesley and his firm because some unfortunate events had left me in a jam. Detectives were demanding I testify or be prosecuted for a crime I didn’t commit. (I wasn’t involved or even at the scene of the alleged crime when it supposedly took place.) Mr. Chesley explained to me that he had been through similar situations with his clients before and understood exactly what was going on. His response to what took place was nothing short of amazing. No matter how small my concern, Mr. Chesley addressed it in a timely manner. He advocated for what is right and empathized with me in dealing with the Court system. After meeting with the supervising D.A. and providing alibi evidence he was able to get me out the situation. I’m very grateful to have found him.
I hired David Chesley for my criminal defense in 2012. he was recommended to us for is success results and his low fees. David is very smart and his professional legal advice was honest & much appreciated during these stressful time. David’s knowledge, advice, and communication about what we were to expect was reassuring and beneficial to me. He charged me a reasonable flat rate and didn’t charge me any surprise fees. In my case David Chesley was able to negotiate with the prosecution attorney for the best result I could hope for. He had success at getting my criminal charges dismissed with the judges approval. You will not be disappointed if you hire The Law Offices of David S. Chesley.
David is very professional, yet very casual. Although it is typically not easy to speak straight up with an attorney, he is very easy to talk to. He replied to my questions quickly and was available all hours. Not only did he get my case resolved with a dismissal, he went above and beyond and got me an expungement without me even requesting it. He never beats around the bush and tells you like it is. At the same time is willing to work overtime to get the results you request. I would use David’s services again in the future.

I don’t write many reviews, however this time I had to share my admiration and appreciation for this firm. Attorney Negin Akhavan is definitely a person you want representing you in any criminal legal battle. She is the clear definition of the frace “is not what you know, but who you know ” she is not only knowledgeable, she also has the relationships with the right people. I couldn’t be happier with the results she was able to provide.
Thank you Negin.
An old felony charge came up, so I hired David and his team in June, and he got me a release on my own cognition on a felony charge in July which has never happened to me, and got it dismissed in October. He was responsive when I called and always kept me updated. Got my case dismissed, was easy to work and handled everything for me. He did an excellent job. I highly recommend David Chesley for any criminal defense.
