Attorney Debi Chalik has devoted her legal career to advocating for people who have been injured and disabled, and families who have lost loved ones, due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties.
I develop a personal relationship with my clients. I get to know their cases and lives inside and out, so I understand their day-to-day struggles and can explain that to a jury, if we need to go to court.
Personal injury cases handled by Attorney Chalik range from premises liability cases where people slip and fall and injure themselves, to medical malpractice/birth injuries such as Erb’s Palsy, to serious motor vehicle accidents caused by defective tires. She has also advocated for clients hurt on the job, including in construction accidents.
Commitment to Clients
As a trial lawyer, Attorney Chalik brings a powerful combination into the courtroom — a personal commitment to advocating for her clients, with a keen understanding of liability and personal injury law. Her dedication to winning compensation for clients, combined with her legal savvy and ability to articulate the merits of each case, have achieved significant verdicts and settlements for Chalik & Chalik’s clients.
A Personal Approach
A native of Montreal, Canada, Attorney Chalik received a fellowship to study law at Nova Southeastern University, NSU Law, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she earned many awards prior to graduating with her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree. She partnered with her husband, Attorney Jason Chalik, at Rosen & Chalik, as a personal injury attorney. Later they founded The Law Offices of Chalik & Chalik to serve the people of Florida.
Our Family Fighting for Your Family
Attorney Chalik prides herself on helping injured victims and bereaved families obtain the compensation they are legally entitled to from insurance companies and businesses. The firm’s slogan is “Our Family Fighting for Your Family,” and she takes that to heart.
When you work with Chalik & Chalik, you are working with either Jason or myself. We will handle your case from start to finish. We will return your phone calls. That’s how we make it personal. You can depend on us.
That’s true for everyone who walks in our office. We have families of our own, and we empathize with our clients’ cases — whether it’s a mother whose child has suffered birth injuries, a young man who was injured at work at a construction site, or a retired person who came to Florida to enjoy their golden years, who was injured due to negligence.
What differentiates Chalik & Chalik Law Offices from larger law firms is the personal commitment to handling every client’s case. As a family-run business, we offer a personal approach to effectively resolving clients’ issues and gaining compensation.
