Welcome to Chester David Svoboda with Mauro Archer and Associates, LLC!
Tell us about your background
I started public service advocacy while working as an EMT with Doctors, Nurses and reparation therapists on Children’s Hospital Los Angeles helicopter. After receiving my master’s degree from New School for Social Research in New York, I worked as a Nonprofit and educational arm of the Los Angeles Fire Department to expand to Sonoma, Lake and Marin Counties.
How did you get into your current line of work?
When living in Sonoma county, me, my wife and kids evacuated from fires on two different occasions. Having been through these experiences, I wanted to do more to help others in similar situations. While working for CHLA as a Teamster, my local 665 in Sonoma County introduced me to Erin Brockovich and the firm. Even though I had no legal background, I was able to join the team as a Claims Management Specialist. I’ve been working on the Camp and Tubbs fire for four years. Now, I am the lead community outreach worker who brings awareness to communities about what we do at our firm.
What does your firm do?
We do a myriad of things. One of the ways we help communities is we hold big companies and businesses accountable for their actions. We do this by providing legal support for those impacted by those actions, as well as help make policy changes that prevent similar issues in the future.
We also provide community engagement and support services. This could be bringing in semi trucks full of resources like winter clothes, and firewood as we transition into the winter months, along with mental health support services. With the help of the Chamber, we would love to conduct a needs assessment to address the needs of the community. We want to be a pillar of support. We want to open the door for public policy and change.
How long are you planning on providing these services?
Our offices are still open and providing support in Chico due to the Camp fire which took place in November 2018. When our firm opens in a community, we don’t leave until the needs are met. I am excited to live here and be a part of this community.
What are the key points you want the Lake Almanor Area to know about you?
My door is always open and I’m here to help. I’m here to collaborate with this community. Our office will be open to anyone who would like a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, a place to watch the baseball game, and a place to have a conversation. Come hang and talk with us.
