Statements from Satisfied Clients

Nassau County Law Firm Tells Individual: “YOU WILL NEVER GET A GUN LICENSE IN NYC.”  She Finds The Chambers Law Firm & She is NOW Licensed in NYC.

John Chambers does the impossible!

When my father passed away recently, he was a NYC pistol licensee. As his only child, he wanted me to have his firearms collection.

The problem was I have been arrested for altering my driver’s license (Criminal Possession of a FORGED Instrument), so I sought legal advice and assistance in connection with applying for a pistol license.

I made the mistake of first contacting a supposedly well-known Nassau County law firm claiming to “specialize” in obtaining NYC handgun licenses, as this firm was referred to me. I spoke directly to the main partner who told me in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that the NYPD would NEVER give me a license based upon my arrest history. I was also told to not waste my money on the application fee.  At that time I became very discouraged.

Thankfully, I decided to search the internet to see if there was any possibility of ever getting a license. I found the Law Offices of John S. Chambers website. I was amazed at the clients’ stories! I contacted the office right away and scheduled a paid phone consultation.

When I spoke to Mr. Chambers, I was immediately put at ease by his assuring and knowledgeable manner. He was certain he could help, and he did!!!  Because of the CHAMBERS LAW FIRM, I am now a licensed gun owner!!

Make no mistake about it,  John Chambers does the impossible! Thank you to Mr. Chambers and staff (Christina)!

Famed Attorney: BARRY I. SLOTNICK, raves:

I recognize John S. Chambers to be a noteworthy lawyer within his jurisdiction and in his field. I respect John’s legal observations and conclusions. The first case I referred to his law firm was way back in 1993. His dedication to his craft and his country is commendable.

I plan to continue our work cooperation well into the future.

For Three Years I Monkeyed Around With A Different Law Firm That Could Not Produce

After over 3 YEARS and thousands of dollars in legal fees, I finally had a very good idea to reach out to John Chambers after finding his law firm online. I took the time to outline my exact situation… happily paid for his phone consultation, hired him and literally within a very brief amount of time received 3 firearms permits (home premise, business premise and rifle/shotgun).

My previous attorney (a Westchester law firm) was a self-proclaimed ‘second amendment’ specialist lawyer… YouTube videos of him guest speaking at colleges, giving second amendment lectures, etc. but couldn’t help me at all. We literally sent several appeals to NYPD regarding my denial, and even filed an Article 78 lawsuit against NYPD which was delayed and tied up for years!!!!

Again, called John Chambers… told him the story; he said this can be fixed, told me how much it would cost, I paid and voila… PRESTO. My ‘second amendment’ rights have been restored.  I am licensed for both pistols and long arms today only because of Mr. John S. Chambers.

Thank you John & staff! -Tony Ross, Brooklyn, New York

An Attorney, A Client For More Than 20 Years, Applauds Mr. Chambers:

I’m an attorney and have been a pistol license holder for well over thirty years. Yet, although I appear regularly before Supreme Court justices, I nonetheless dreaded each renewal: the paperwork was daunting and each time I went to police headquarters, either to be questioned, to correct “errors” in my paperwork, to pick up my renewal, I felt like a criminal. John Chambers has changed all that. I’m not clear on how he gained such respect from the PD or how he gained such skill in this area, but it is truly extraordinary.

There is no one in New York State or New York City who knows the process, and can thereby simplify your life, nearly as well as John S. Chambers. I have referred all gun licensing matters to his law firm, and utilized his services myself, since 1992.

I have to thank Mr. Chambers and his staff for helping me in the renewal of my pistol license. Without the Chambers Law firm I would have lost my concealed carry license. I have a carry licence which the License Division would not renew. I am the owner of a small business in New York City, and I carry cash in and out of some very dangerous neighborhoods. When I tried to renew, I was told I did not have significant cash, and that I had no threats against me. I was at my wits end and did not know where to turn, until I found the Chambers law firm. Mr. Chambers took care of my problem without delay. The firm seems passionate about their work. A million times thank you to the Chambers Law firm. Signed, J. Candelas.

Retired NYPD Detective Julian C. Jones, Jr, proclaims: :

Mr. Chambers, thank you and your staff for your amazing efforts in procuring a return of my pistol license. This was the second time within a year the Nassau County PD suspended my gun license. I was sure they would revoke it. I am a retired NYPD Detective. I now stood charged with domestic violence against my ex-girlfriend, who had an ongoing problem with an addiction to prescription medications, including Vicodin.

Mr. Chambers, you and your staff believed in my character, and got the job done. For this, I am truly grateful.  Your strong efforts on my behalf turned this case around, and gave me back something very precious to me: my name, and my reputation.  I will highly recommend your law firm to anyone with a pistol license problem. Sincerely, Retired NYC Detective Julian C. Jones, Jr.

I was denied appointment with the NYPD based upon “psych” reasons. Later on, I applied to the NYPD for a handgun license in connection with my job as a NYS Criminal Investigator.  NYPD denied my carry license. I retained the LAW OFFICES OF JOHN S. CHAMBERS to fight this denial, and Mr. Chambers submitted an administrative appeal and WON.

If it wasn’t for Mr. Chambers, I would have lost my job, and I would have had to give up my dreams of a career in law enforcement.

I cannot thank Mr. Chambers, and his staff, enough. With Gratitude, Daniel Reyes

I worked as one of the top security men for Mr. Donald Trump, and the Trump Organization. I was UNARMED until I found the Chambers law firm.

Although I am a retired law enforcement officer (Waterfront Commission Detective), I have three arrests in my past that the New York City Police Department’s Pistol License Division used against me to DENY MY CARRY LICENSE.

Mr. Chambers appealed this decision, and won!  He is a dedicated lawyer who works hard for his clients.  His know-how and vast knowledge of the gun licensing issues far surpass other lawyers who “try” to practice in this area.

I owe my entire career in private security and investigations to this law firm.  Without Mr. Chambers’ expertise, I would have neither my concealed carry license nor my Private Investigator license.

I was blessed to spend many, many years serving Mr. Donald J. Trump and his beautiful family, and I now have my own P.I. company….I could not have done any of this, however, without the EXPERT services of the CHAMBERS LAW FIRM. In my estimation, Mr. Chambers is #1 in gun licensing law!  (Name withheld at the request of the client).

The Chambers Law Firm Obtains Full Concealed Carry for Private Investigator Who Received NYPD, PLD, “Notice of Disapproval.”

Dear Mr. Chambers,

Since we retained your law firm back in 2007, we have always been extremely impressed with the professionalism and dedication that you and your staff possess.  I would not have my business unrestricted carry license, if it were not for your law firm. As a license private investigator, it is essential to have this type of license in order to provide services of armed security and executive protection.

Whenever I am asked about gun laws in New York State and elsewhere, I always refer your firm and say, “Mr. Chambers and his team gets things done when no one else can.”  And, I stand firmly behind this statement.

We will see you again at the time of our next renewal, as we do every three years.  And, of course, we will continue to refer any gun related matters to exclusively to your law firm.

Thank you!

I am a NYC firearms dealer. I own and operate a gun shop & range in Queens, known as WOODHAVEN RIFLE & PISTOL RANGE. My family has been in this business for 50 years. When I was arrested and accused of facilitating an illegal firearms transfer in 2006, I did not know exactly where to turn. All of my licenses were immediately taken from me, and my entire inventory was confiscated by the police. I turned to the LAW OFFICES OF JOHN S. CHAMBERS.  John Chambers has a great knowledge of the laws pertaining to firearms as well as having a keen instinct into the workings of the Police Department’s Pistol License Division. He not only made this horrible experience bearable, but he made me feel someone was there at any time I needed him. He actually listened to what I was saying and gave me the best advice to suit my situation. John and his staff contacted every agency to make sure everything was being handled properly.

John Chambers was there and though he could not make any guarantee, he did all in his power to assure not only my personal licenses were returned, but my dealer licenses as well. John and his staff were always efficient, knowledgeable and quick to get results throughout this whole process.

As a firearms dealer and the owner of a range, I have never before been very comfortable recommending firearms attorneys to my customers. Now, after dealing with John Chambers and his staff, I have NO problem highly recommending his law firm. This is one lawyer who is truly looking out for his client from start to finish. For this and much more I am truly grateful.
