Since Chen Law Group opened its doors in 2009, the firm has assisted dozens of business and individual clients in resolving their legal matters.  For example, the firm assisted in an appeal of a U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty order against drill pipe and successfully had those orders overturned, after appeaing the U.S. government’s determination to the Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  The firm has also represented clients in highly contested family law matters, where custody and critical financial support were at stake. While the firm encourages settlement where possible, we are not afraid to proceed to trial when it is necessary to extract a better settlement offer or preserve the client’s interests.
