Would highly recommend Mr Banks. I contacted him with a legal matter for my son and he personally answered his phone at 8 a.m. on a Monday morning. Within a couple of hours he had the police report and was back in contact with me to have us come into his office. Before we even met with him he already had conversations with the prosecutor and a plan for my sons defense. He put us at complete ease and we were amazed at how quickly he took action. He kept in constant contact with us and we were more than please with the outcome. His fee was fair and well worth the quality representation he provided my son. Thank you Chad. You are amazing!!!!read more

Chad Bank is absolutely amazing at what he does. He’s always very professional, but also very firm and doesn’t play games. I hired him a lot later than I should have due to anxiety about my case. He gave me a good price and immediately got to work. He was willing to work with me in regards to making the payments as it was such short notice to be able to spend the money. He was very confident about that results that he would get and tried to make me believe everything would be okay although I wasn’t so sure. When court day came, he had me in and out in no time which was great because of my work schedule which sometimes runs over 12 hours a day. I would recommend Chad to anyone for any case, no matter if it’s big or small. He has also helped me out with several smaller issues in the past. But he really exceeded my expectations with this case. Chad and his team are the way to go if you’re gonna go out and pay for an attorney. Thanks so much for your help!read more

Chad F. Banks was absolutely amazing. I called on a Friday night. I received a call within a few hours. He was extremely confident and put my mind at ease. Come Monday morning, as promised he handled my case quickly and effectively. Walked me through each step, and I couldn’t be more relieved or pleased. Mark who works in his office ( or for Chad) was kind and caring always assuring you that your in the best hands legally. Genuinely interested and concerned to help. I called several lawyers who couldn’t come close to take care of their clients quickly, so there is nothing hanging over your head or have to return to court several times. This is definitely the go to Lawyer if you want your case handled quickly and professionally. I will recommend him to anyone seeking the best.
No lawyer gives up their weekend to help their clients. Chad did and this is the legal representation you want and need in your corner .
Thank you Chad Banks and Mark

Chad Bank is an outstanding attorney and person. He truly cared about me and my case, was always accessible, put me at ease, and most of all got the desired results! I'm from out of state and I needed an attorney in Rhode Island. My court date was less than 2 weeks away. I called Chad's office, left my contact information, and in less than an hour Chad called me and we went over the specifics. Right away Chad was on it and was communicating with me throughout the entire process. During the week, Chad told me how he thought things were going to play out and most importantly reassured me that everything was going to be okay, which was huge! In only 1 week, Chad was able to get the case dismissed and I didn't even need to go to court! I would very highly recommend Chad Bank to anyone needing an attorney. Honestly, one of the best experiences I've ever had with an attorney. Thank you Chad!read more

I don't know how to express how incredible the team at Chad Bank has been. I had met Chad through a chance meeting at the court house. He was just a kind soul who I asked for help to find out why my son was charged. My son had never been in trouble prior to this incident so I was beside myself with worry. To find out, with the assistance of Chad, my son was charged with 2 felonies. A few days later, when trying to find an attorney for my son's case, I remembered Chad's name and reached out to him. Through Chad's hard work and diligence, he and his team were able to reduce those charges to a misdemeanor and a years probation. I am very grateful to Chad, Rory and the others who worked to have the charges reduced. Felony charges are serious and can impact you through a life time. I truly believe if it wasn't for him and his team's hard work, thorough knowledge of the law and diligence, the outcome wouldn't have been as positive as it was. My son now has a chance to pursue a career without a felony conviction that could hinder that outcome. I would highly recommend Chad Bank.read more

Chad provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and great attention. Upon our first sit down, he listened to every one of our concerns and proceeded to explain what was in our best interest with much detail. Although we weren’t sure Chad’s plan was best, he executed word for word what he recommended for us and things couldn’t have turned out any better than they did. Chad is absolutely amazing at what he does. He is VERY accessible, which sets him apart from most attorneys whom you would typically need to speak to 2-3 people and/or leave a message and wait forever on a call back before getting a hold of your attorney. Anytime we asked a question, he was patient and answered every single question no matter how small or silly it may have been.

From the beginning I was extremely stressed and wasn't sure where to start. I began asking around and their was four people that recommend me to Chad banks and told me their personal stories of how he helped them, so i knew I had to go see who this lawyer was, and see if he could possibly help me in any way. Chad got me in for a consult the very next day and he had all the paperwork right on hand. It was quick, Not once did he BS me he was thorough & knowledgeable, He promised me he could help me out and told me to go home and stop worrying. Within a week Chad got my case dismissed and I never even went to court, I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend him.

Chad is an incredibly resourceful and intelligent person, who knows the legal system well. He has helped my husband at a time where we thought our case of a false accusation from a family member wasn’t going to end well, and I worried for my husbands safety, as other people(and other lawyers) told me the chances of conviction of a felony for domestic violence/assault were high and it was not going to be a easy and quick process. The process was very stressful as our case took months, but Chad from the beginning, made a promise that everything was going to be alright. BANK NEVER LIES! Chad has earned a reputation for being an astute and analytical person, being incredibly dependable, who basically knows someone in each sector of Rhode Island, and can find out useful info to help your case quickly. You can feel doubt at times, and lose hope, but Chad has proved himself worthy of his reputation, being the legal wizard that he is, my case might have gone further thanks to the State and proceeded to further prosecution, Chad made all the trouble and stress of this arduous process go away, ending in dismissal. I have no idea how, but I don’t question that he goes above and beyond in his job, and in my eyes, is the best lawyer I’ve ever met. This man knows criminal law better to a profound level, and in my case, there were times where he went ahead in court and did proceedings WITHOUT ME, as it wasn’t necessary, so I could still work and be with family and not have to worry about court. Undoubtedly, Chad’s work ethic is fantastic, and he manages to work with so many people, yet give great attention to each case, working on it constantly. Chad, beyond being a lawyer, is caring and positive guy, who makes you feel hope for the future, who’s a funny guy that can cheer you up, and IS NOT one of those greedy lawyers who doesn’t care for their clients. BANK DELIVERS RESULTS, LITTLE TALK, ALL ACTION! (unlike a lot of other lawyers in RI) Bank backs up his word with a long list of victories in the legal landscape. Believe in the BANK, no matter how difficult and dark things seem, he is a person who has seen lot of people and things and is quite wise in the advice he gives to people who have made rash decisions and has experienced it all. Don’t feel like you’re alone in this, and no one understands or knows what to do in your situation, chances are that Chad has dealt with it in the past and will not let you down. TRUST HIM, he is incredibly transparent and upfront with you. Chad’s knowledge goes into areas beyond criminal defense, and the few things he doesn’t know specifically, he sure does know someone that certainly does, and get reliable answers fast. I am eternally grateful to Chad Bank for his defense of my husband against a false accusation, against so many odds, and I know that he knew the outcome from the beginning. I’ve cried and smiled in this case with Chad, and I have to say, I’ve never regretted choosing Chad as my attorney, and I’m proud to say he has represented my family. I always wondered why he has so many great testimonials from so many people, but now I certainly know why, because THE BANK IS THE BEST, LOVE YOU CHAD!read more

Chad has fought for me in away no other has. He was honest and precise, he found the avenues needed to support my case. Chad is extremely resourceful, and has an amazing finger on the pulse of the legal system in RI. It's very rare to find a true litigator and fighter with the kind of law knowledge Chad has. He has truly helped me to obtain my life in society at the level I deserve regardless of the legal system and has been an incredible antagonist for my rights and change...Thank You Chadread more

When my girlfriend asked how I knew about Chad, I said google. Honestly, she was a bit iffy but that all changed once we met. The first time we met Chad I was very impressed by his professionalism. My girlfriend and I loved his bluntness. He’s a no nonsense kind of guy who does not beat around the bush. He told us exactly what he was going to aim for and it all went exactly as he said. We can’t thank him enough for his help in the case. We will certainly use his services again if needed. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney. Thanks Chad, you’re the man! - BIread more

From our initial consultation Chad was clear about all of the potential outcomes I was looking at and was very sincere in his approach. He was quick to remind me that I could call him whenever I had questions or concerns regarding my case. Chad listened to me when I had concerns and explained in detail how he would build my defense to increase my odds of a positive outcome. When it finally came the day for the judge to hear my case Chad had planned out my defense impeccably and as a result the matter was resolved in my favor. Chad was extremely professional and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal advice or consulread more

I would highly recommend Chad to anyone I knew in the area. Me and my boyfriend live out of state and got into quite a doozy, Chad helped us with everything from beginning to en and everything between so we didn't have to stress so far away. Thankful to have bumped into him during the whole mess we were in, because he handled it without a problem and was there whenever we had any questions. He was upfront with us about all options and I know he would be our first call if anything were to happen (which it won't!) Thank you Chad for all you've done! We appreciate youread more

I remember being really stressed in the beginning when having to deal with my situation. But after having Chad recommended to me by a good friend, upon the first meeting, I knew I was in good hands. I can say from experience, Chad makes it his mission to make you feel comfortable by expressing his expertise. I was confident that everything would turn out in my favor in the end. And it did. I’m extremely grateful and will definitely recommend Chad to my circle.👍👍read more

Chad Banks is amazing at what he does!! The system was trying to screw me for being in wrong place at wrong time and a cop chocked me out without identifying who he was . Basically got arrested and went in front of judge. My first time being in trouble ever and as I was standing in front of judge my mom called chad and he was in the courtroom in 2 seconds and took the case and I was giving a fear ruling with him by my side!! He is amazing!!!! I would recommend if ever in trouble call Chad he is good at what he does and me and my family truly appreciate him!!read more

Words cannot even begin to describe the appreciation I have for Chad. I’ve known Chad for four days and trust him more than most people in my life. I made a bad decision, called Chad and within seconds he was on it. He was up front and straight forward from the start and made it known he wouldn’t give me the run around. He means business and it’s clear from meeting with him that many people respect him and think highly of him. Four days is all it took for Chad to handle my situation, he met with me on Christmas Eve and took care of everything without question. Because of that I can enjoy the holidays with my family and not have to stress about what could possibly happen. This guy is a lawyer genius. He can handle any situation and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer. You’ll be more than satisfied.read more

Mr. Banks was amazing dealing with my case. He made me feel comfortable the second I met him. You could tell he had the respect of the court, from the prosecutors to the secretary to the judge. He was able to get my case dismissed after I had a bench warrant issued for a year. I highly recommend him. He’s definantly a shark. Furthermore he assured me he’d work on getting the case expunged altogether.read more

I recently found myself in a situation where I needed to retain an attorney for my daughter. She had gotten herself into some legal trouble and needed good representation. So like any parent,I asked around for referrals and my search ultimately lead me to Chad F. Banks and his team. From the moment I first consulted with him I had a tremendous sense of confidence in his abilities to bring my childs legal issue to a favorable disposition, which he in fact did this afternoon. He was responsive and available to respond by phone,email,and text to address any concerns or questions I had during the legal process. He is an extremely skilled attorney and staunch advocate for his clients. Also,it should be noted that he is also very personable and easy to deal with. Going forward,if there's a time where either myself or a loved one has the misfortune to need legal counsel, I would absolutely contact Chad and his excellent staff and retain their services again. So thank you so much Attorney Banks for the service you rendered for my family today. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you again. Sincerely, Paul J. Lombardi Jr.read more

WORDS DEFY the kind of Attorney/man Chad Bank is. There IS NO OTHER like him. He CHAMPIONED my dad's cause TWICE. He imploded both his cases, (One of which had already gone through a trial with a hung jury verdict with a public defender who could only scream at him to take a bad plea deal, telling him it "was the best he was going to get".) It wasn't the best. For the BEST results, you must have the BEST criminal defense attorney. Chad f. Bank is the best. He caused all of my dad's adversaries, including a line-up of police officers, to drop cases or just walk away on the day of hearing before the court. Chad Bank "Walks the Walk" that others can only talk. We will never trust anyone else again for our loved ones caught in a legal nightmare. Chad is the real deal in criminal defense, astounding knowledge of the law, and intense commitment towards his clients makes him not only a powerful, but LETHAL ally for your defense. Results speak for themselves and his are innumerable. FOREVER GRATEFUL.read more

Never had any run-ins with the law. Ever. Suddenly, there was an incident in my home and I was wrongfully charged with a domestic violence crime for protecting a family member. I needed my criminal record to be squeaky clean again, because my employment, and ultimately my future, was at stake. I wasted no time looking for the best lawyer I could find online for my situation. I needed someone who would brush this mess under the rug quickly and with little to no work on my part. Chad was that man. The guy doesn't pull any punches. He tells you exactly like it is up front. He tells you you don't need to worry about a damn thing, 'cause he'll take care of it all. I was skeptical at first. Very skeptical. But my skepticism was misplaced. He was right, and so were all the other 5-star reviews. Once you hire Chad for the job, he'll get it done. Your job is to show up to court. He does the rest. Simple as that. Need more convincing? The guy's office is literally across the street from the courthouse. It's his damn backyard. His stomping grounds. He practically lives there. Everyone else is just a guest. Oh, and if you're worried about the cost of hiring a lawyer, I get it. I was there. Chad is a reasonable man. He gets it, too. He knows we're not all walking around, ready to pull out wads of cash from our pockets in a moment's notice, so he'll do his best to work with you as he did with me. I don't think you can say the same for a lot of other lawyers. So do yourself a favor and hire this man to put your life back on track. You'll be glad you did.read more

Chad definitely gets the job DONE !!! I highly recommend him to represent anyone. I'm from Massachusetts and contacted Chad for a case that was in RI and without hesitation he took on the case and did exactly what he said he was going to do and expunge the case within a month. His assistants was great with relaying the messages to him when I had any questions or concerns and he would contact me the same day with answers. Overall you will not go wrong by having Attorney Chad Bank representing you. Thanks Chad and your team for doing what you do !!!!!read more
