I have lived in Daytona Beach all my life. So when I was involved in a car accident, I knew to immediately contact the Chanfrau & Chanfrau Law Firm to represent me. Mr. William (Bill) Chanfrau, Jr. is personable, professional, and any questions I had Mr. Chanfrau, his paralegal Amanda, or one of his other very capable staff would get back to me that day. He personally takes an interest in your case, and what is best for you is his foremost concern.
