Don E. Chomiak

Our firm’s founder, attorney Don Chomiak, learned to practice law working for national/international law firms in Los Angeles and New York. He has the “big firm” legal skills and litigation experience necessary to handle large cases with complex legal issues that require sophisticated legal analysis. He has purposely structured his firm so to provide cost-effective services for his clients’ benefit. Since he’s not burdened with the huge costs related to operating a larger firm, he can provide his services at a reduced hourly billing rate.

As a former Navy pilot, he also has the confidence and poise to manage high-stakes situations effectively.

Don Chomiak is an experienced business litigation attorney with significant complex litigation experience including both bench and jury trials.  A former “big firm” attorney first in New York and then in L.A., Don started Talisman Law in late 2010 and has since successfully litigated eight-figure lawsuits to settlements in cases where clients who bought condominiums or resort condo-hotel units sought relief under the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act and other statutes in connection with claims alleging that the developers had withheld information buyers were entitled to know before signing their purchase contracts.  Don has also handled complex lawsuits involving business disputes ranging from investment banking and insurance to more straightforward contract claims.
