What Ken's Clients Say
"Our law firm is a specialist litigation practice in Sydney, Australia. Our partners have decades of experience in the law and over the years we have observed all manner of legal practitioners from many counties around the world.
In 2011 the partners of this firm were the victims of a substantial fraud perpetrated by an individual in California. We were determined to pursue our rights notwithstanding the complexities and risks associated with undertaking litigation in another country.
Our firm did research as to the best attorney to prosecute our case in California, and we decided that Mr Kenneth Chyten was the lawyer we needed. We engaged Mr Chyten and this was the best decision we have ever made. Mr Chyten won our case and achieved a result beyond our wildest expectations within eighteen months.
They say that lawyers make the worst and most critical clients when they need to brief another lawyer. However, we cannot fault Mr Chyten. In our opinion - and we have never said this about any other lawyer before - he is the most talented and exceptional lawyer we have ever met.
By reference to every measure by which we rate lawyers, Mr Chyten is exemplary. In terms of experience, Mr Chyten's in excess of 500 successful cases over more than 30 years of practice speaks for itself. In our proceedings, Mr Chyten ran rings around three different opposition law firms and none of the opposing partners could take a trick on him.
In terms of knowledge, there is nothing about United States law and procedure that Mr Chyten did not know. We were even surprised when Mr Chyten grasped the complexities of some Australian law that was relevant to our case without the slightest effort.
In terms of tactics, Mr Chyten is the master of all. He was aggressive when he needed to be, charming when this could be more effective, careful when he sensed a trap, and always tenacious. There was never a time when Mr Chyten did not have exactly the right tactic for the situation at hand.
In terms of integrity, Mr Chyten is scrupulous and completely trustworthy. His counsel is always wise and considered, and solution oriented. Mr Chyten is a pleasure to deal with, and he brings a great sense of calm and where necessary humour to stressful situations.
In terms of communication, Mr Chyten kept us immediately informed of important matters without wasting time with unnecessary reports. Mr Chyten's letters to opposing attorneys were brilliant and devastating, and as fellow practitioners we regard them as classics.
In terms of fees, Mr Chyten's charges were completely transparent and extremely reasonable. Given the experience of Mr Chyten and the fees that many other lawyers of lesser experience and ability charge, the value is second to none.
Mr Chyten is the consummate professional. From our first conversation with him we were filled with confidence, and we knew we had found a true and devoted advocate.
This firm cannot recommend Mr Chyten highly enough. Any client that is fortunate enough to have Mr Chyten choose to take on their case will not be disappointed. Our only regret is that Mr Chyten is not in Australia. If he was, we would be begging him to join our firm."
Paul Sarvaas, Sarvaas Ciappara, Lawyers (Sydney, Australia)
"I have used Mr. Chyten for over 20 years. Without a doubt, he is the finest lawyer I have ever known. He works hard, keeps me informed, and always is responsive. His knowledge of the law is beyond reproach. He is very tenacious, yet gentle. We have had many cases together, and he has always been successful."
"Ken has been working with our firm for over three years. We cannot recommend him more highly. We find him to be brilliant and of fine moral character."
"Ken has represented our company for over 20 years. He is very responsive, knowledgeable and more importantly trustworthy. If you are looking for a first class litigation attorney with strong values and a work ethic second to none, look no further."
"I highly endorse this lawyer's work. Ken is a terrific lawyer in all aspects. He is brilliant, tenacious, hardworking and a zealous advocate for his clients. I had the pleasure of working with Ken on two very hard fought, complex civil litigation matters. It was his unflappable tenacity, hardwork and sharp intellect that helped us achieve excellent results for our clients. Ken always conducts himself in accordance with the highest standards and ideals of professionalism and civility. I look forward to having the opportunity to working with him again any time!"

Barry Evenchick , Roseland (NJ)

Stuart Schneider , Westlake Village (CA)
"Ken's work is extremely thorough and comprehensive. He addresses all possible issues in a case in an aggressive and complete manner.

Laura Westray , Redondo Beach (CA)

"Mr. Chyten has demonstrated his expertise in civil litigation and labor and employment law through his answers to questions posted on Avvo, and has made a significant contribution to the community."
