Former Prosecutor on Your Side

Some people ask how can we trust you if you were a former prosecutor and put people away for crimes.  The reason why you can trust me is because my real motivation for entering the practice of law is to help people solve their problems.   My passion stemmed from a burning desire to help people; real people like you, not some vague notion of representing the State or Community.   Working as a prosecutor though gave me the experience to understand how crimes are prosecuted and what defenses work and don’t work.  Prosecution and Defense work are really two sides of the same coin.  There’s not that much difference between the two sides, although their interests are adversarial.  It is the individual versus the State.  The State, by default, usually has more resources at their disposal to go after the individual and the potential to trample individual rights always exist.  You need a fighter in your corner to battle it against the State.  You need a fighter who knows what the other side is already thinking.  But going back to why you can trust me is that at the end of the day, I care deeply about my clients, and the greatest reward I get from my job is helping real people with real problems which could affect their livelihood and freedom.  I will use all the tools available to me, my experience and background including my days as a former prosecutor, to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Why Henry King Chae?

In addition to my background as a former prosecutor, I have been an attorney for over 13 years.  I have practically lived in the courtroom since before I graduated from law school.   I have handled every stage of the criminal justice process on both sides of the aisle as a prosecutor and a defense attorney.  And though many people are afraid of the idea of going to trial, you want someone who is completely unafraid of going to trial and someone who has substantial trial experience.  I have over 120 jury trials under my belt and the advantage I bring to the table for you is having someone on your side who understands the merits and weaknesses of your case to be able to carefully navigate a deal and/or fight the matter in a jury trial.

You will have someone who has forged strong relationships on both sides of the aisle as well as with the bench.  This is not to say that there are going to be special backroom favors but it is to say that you will have an attorney who commands the respect of the court and the respect of his peers on both sides of the aisle.  I will be an attorney who can fight for you, protect you, serve you and be your voice throughout the whole process.
