Bernadette U.Chimah, Esq.

Managing Attorney/Owner

My journey as a lawyer exemplifies resilience and dedication. From beginning my primary educational career through matriculating out of law school and eventually founding ChimahLaw LLC, I decided to pursued justice with unwavering passion, embracing my heritage and family values while overcoming challenges and advocating fiercely for my clients.

The Journey of Bernadette U. Chimah, Esq & ChimahLaw, LLC

Bernadette's journey to founding ChimahLaw LLC is a story of faith, resilience, and dedication to justice.

 

Initially, she never intended to run a law firm. Passionate about becoming an attorney ever  since she was a small child, she envisioned a career in government service. After completing law school and passing the bar, she worked as a contractor in the federal government. However, feeling unchallenged in her various roles, she seized the opportunity to pursue her true calling and stepped out on faith, embarking on a journey she never anticipated, but was destined for her.

Choosing the name for my law firm was a process of self-discovery and acceptance. Bernadette, of Nigerian descent, initially struggled with using her last name, Chimah, which means "God knows" in Igbo, a native language in Nigeria. She desired to have a unique name separate from her identity, but eventually realized ChimahLaw LLC was the perfect choice because it truly, embodied her heritage and personal journey.

She emphasizes the importance of empathy in building genuine relationships with clients, being persistence in overcoming obstacles, and the necessity of lifelong learning in an ever-evolving legal landscape, which ultimately shaped ChimahLaw’s core values.

Bernadette’s journey with ChimahLaw LLC is a testament to her unwavering commitment to justice, her roots, and the community, all of which continue to shape her path to inspire others through the law.
