Mr. Chapin assisted our corporation with negotiating a critical commercial lease for our business and with resolving a major business dispute that had been going on for years. His understanding of dealmaking, psychology, contract law, real estate law, and courtroom consequences was extremely helpful. It also strengthened our bargaining position to know that he had the company’s back if any issue resulted in a lawsuit. Thankfully, because of his stewardship, we steered clear of litigation. Mr. Chapin was very easy to work with and was very respectful and responsive to our questions. He gave us a very clear understanding of all of our possible options. He did an excellent job and got us the best possible outcome – saving us a fortune in the process. We would gladly hire him in the future and definitely recommend his services to anyone dealing with a contract, real estate, or business dispute.
Mr. Chapin helped me set up and charter my new business. He had a good feel for all the details necessary to design the structure of the business and he explained all the legal business concepts in terms I could understand. It wasn't so easy, because the ownership structure needed a lot of thought. He worked with me to get all the paperwork completed, leaving not stone unturned. I highly recommend him for his attention to detail, clever ideas to structure the business, good communications skills, followup, and his honesty.
Herschel get things done in a timely manner and he got my lawsuit file and finished in 90 days. In 39 years that has never happened. Will use again and recommend to all my business friends.

Hershel handled my legal defense in a real estate dispute. Hershel went above and beyond what I expected from a legal representative. He was extraordinarily helpful, and because of his diligence and proactive handling of a threatened lawsuit, I was able to avoid a courtroom, and even a settlement, altogether. He took strong, thoughtful, immediate action on my behalf. In addition to the measures he took in protecting my interests initially, he followed up on my situation for several months to address my additional concerns. In the end, he convinced the other side’s lawyers to back down completely - preventing an untold amount of cost and headache. I value his services greatly, and I plan to continue to work with him if/when I need legal representation.
I highly recommend Mr Chapin. I have relied on him to handle multiple transactional and business advisory matters for my company. Not only is his work consistently high quality, but he is also very detail oriented, quickly responds to communications, and has my company's best interests in mind.

I had a legal problem with a construction contractor who failed to complete the work that they were contracted to perform. I paid the contractor lots of money up front, but the contractor gave all kinds of grief and excuses for not completing the work. I was totally exasperated. I decided to get legal representation to protect my interests and hired Mr. Chapin. I felt completely at ease with him while he assisted with my case. Mr. Chapin was extremely focused and thorough in each phase of the lawsuit. He took the time to explain the entire process and the possible outcomes. His handling of the case far exceeded my expectations. I can’t say enough good things about him. I would recommend Hershel Chapin to anyone who needs help with any kind of consumer, business, or debt collection legal dispute.
I highly recommend Mr. Chapin as a first-class attorney. I had a particularly difficult situation where I contracted with another party and they failed to deliver on what was promised to me.
Mr. Chapin represented me and argued in court that the other party engaged in deceptive trade practices and breached the contract. I had never been in a lawsuit before, which made it a scary thing to me, but I felt like I was driven there by the other party’s outrageous misdeeds. Mr. Chapin was very reassuring and understanding the entire time. He helped me to make informed decisions and to feel comfortable in knowing that I would ultimately prevail.
Mr. Chapin was very diligent in communicating with me during the course of the legal representation. He was also very tough and thorough in using all the legal instruments at his disposal in service of my best interests. At the same time, the opposing party was extremely offensive in how it handled the case and introduced numerous complications. Despite this adversity, Mr. Chapin fought hard and kept the case on track by sticking to the facts and the law.
Mr. Chapin had a facility for keeping all the complex details of the case straight in his mind and throwing these details into the face of the other party. He also had a great feel for legal procedures necessary to keep the case moving steadily forward, carefully avoiding the misdirection minefields set up by opposing counsel.
I am extremely happy with the outcome of my case. I think Mr. Chapin’s strong capabilities in creditors’ rights and bankruptcy areas of law were key in obtaining a favorable outcome for me because of the convincing way he let the other party know with certainty that they were going to pay one way or another for their misdeeds. I am very pleased with everything Mr. Chapin did to help me succeed. This was the first time I ever engaged Mr. Chapin for legal services and I would definitely use him again. I would strongly recommend him as an excellent advocate in a litigation or negotiation situation.

When I first hired Hershel, I needed an attorney with a good knowledge of law and someone that would give me the time of day. Hershel hit on both of those notes.
Hershel has a very good understanding of legal matters, and it is obvious in his workings that he has spent a great deal of time studying law.
Hershel was also very good at responding. All of my communications were responded to in a very reasonable timeframe. I certainly feel like he works for his clients and has a genuine interest in helping his clients to achieve their goals. His communication was exemplary.
Additionally it also helps to know that Hershel is a stand up and trustworthy person.
