"I was referred to Elizabeth when I found myself in a rather urgent and unprecedented situation. She immediately made me feel comfortable and confident and very quickly became my trusted partner. She responded to my many (many!) questions within minutes and with extraordinary patience and respect. Elizabeth is skilled, resourceful, knowledgeable and had excellent instincts when it came to representing me. She is both supportive and straightforward, not wasting any time in finding the best possible outcome for her clients. She gave me tremendous confidence during a challenging time and I continue to be grateful to her for her humanity as well as her expertise."

“I am so proud of my friend and my attorney, Mike Chinitz on the launch of his firm Chinitz Law LLC. Mike has been my primary attorney from the inception of Assurance Mortgage in 1991 through the sale in 1998 to H & R Block, to the opening and sale of Greenpark Mortgage between 2001 and 2012. He is the 'expert' when it comes to employment law, dispute resolution and business strategy. I recommend him without reserve. Let him help you grow your business safely and confidently.”

“I was referred to Mike 10 years ago by a very trusted colleague when I was in a difficult position. Since then, he has assisted me through a variety of important business situations (i.e., many different contract negotiations). His legal guidance and representation of me has been superb. He is extremely responsive and available. His insights are keen. Above all else, he is reasonable. At times when I wanted to push harder on some things, he helped me see the bigger picture. Great counsel. Highly recommended!”
Orthopedic Surgeon and Chief Medical Officer
“I retained the services of Chinitz Law, more specifically Elizabeth after finding myself in need of guidance while facing an unexpected employer related matter. Elizabeth was incredibly collaborative, detail oriented, and open minded while we refined our strategy. I felt Elizabeth took the time to review every possible angle and present them to me as such. In addition, Elizabeth was very responsive during my roller-coaster, unconventional situation when I needed a quick minute to obtain her point of view and discuss next steps. I hope I am not in a situation where I would need Elizabeth's services again, however in the event I am, Elizabeth would be my first call.”

EVP and Chief Technology and Operations Officer at a leading American insurance company
“Meeting and working with Mike was the silver lining in a most unfortunate employment situation that unexpectedly came my way. He is strategically focused, highly skilled in employment law and truly cares about his clients. After a few meetings/conversations, Mike quickly became my trusted advisor, guiding and supporting me through a process I had never experienced before. It was so reassuring to have Mike by my side. In addition to my legal matter, Mike connected me with numerous contacts in his network to assist me in getting on my feet again. I am extremely grateful for Mike’s amazing counsel and positive impact on my life”
Senior Business Development and Marketing Executive of an American Lawyer 100 Law firm
"I realized Mike was a different kind of lawyer when I told his assistant Alice that I had an urgent matter and he fit in a call the next day, during his vacation. The reception in the mountains wasn't great, but he was totally present and engaged and I was immediately reassured that things would be ok. Mike was consistently available and supportive, in a truly sincere way that went beyond the technicalities of legal agreements. As a physician, I always tried to find the very best treatments for my patients and also to meet them where they were emotionally, understanding that sometimes circumstances are just bad and that being fully present at moments of crisis can be incredibly impactful. Mike has this ability to operate on two levels. He capably addressed the legal challenges of my situation with a thoughtful and meticulous approach, while also being highly empathic and intuitive about what I was experiencing emotionally. Perhaps even without realizing, he was treating me as a "whole person", in the way a great doctor takes care of their patients. He set me up for happiness and success and I am grateful."
