My name is Chirag Desai. I fight for the “little guys” – the underdogs, the victims, the fighters, the survivors, the powerless, the ones who have been wronged, when they need help the most. I hear you, I am with you, and I will fight for you.
I was born in Zambia (in Africa). My family immigrated into Mississauga, Ontario in Canada when I was 7 years old. My parents were both blue-collar factory workers and we did not come from a lot of money. I left home (and my family) when I was 18 years old and chose Charlotte, North Carolina, in pursuit of the American Dream. I knew I wanted to be in the United States and attended UNC Charlotte for Psychology. Shortly after graduation from UNC Charlotte, I moved to Morgantown, West Virginia, for law school. So, though I’m not from here, I chose to be here in West Virginia. My journey made me resilient – and you need a resilient advocate.
Through my journey, I overcame many obstacles: I was accepted last into my class at WVU Law, I was told by others that I couldn’t succeed unless I went the traditional route (to a big firm and on the defense-side first), and that I should consider changing my name to be successful in West Virginia. Those things were all false: I became partner at a personal injury law firm when I was 29, then got into my own partnership for a few years, and in January of 2023, launched Desai Law. I have what it takes to fight for your cause, because I have always been the underdog. I love a good underdog story.
Launching Desai Law is a dream come true. I help people, day in and day out. I help people in some of the most unfortunate situations in their lives – after they have sustained a traumatic injury or some other preventable tragedy. I also help employees hold their employers accountable, in some instances. Every time: the opposition is a powerful person, entity, or insurance company. David beat Goliath with a single stone – why can’t you? We are committed to helping people turn their tragedy into triumph.
If you want to learn more, read our reviews [link to Birdseye Review Page] and hear the experiences of my former clients– almost all of whom I am still in contact with, based on the personal connection we were able to establish during their representation. We focus on the personal connection. I would rather you hear from me than your neighbor than a TV commercial. Our clients, their causes, and the favorable results we were able to obtain are the reason that we have been able to compete with traditional personal injury law firms and pave our own lane. Referrals drive our law practice, and we never take them for granted.
