Sean Chapman served as my defense attorney for two years and was responsible for saving me from a horrible fate. Having been wrongly indicted for arson of an occupied structure, I was prosecuted by the State with the assistance of the ATF. While arson was not Sean’s specialty, he researched the subject exhaustively, found me the best possible expert witnesses, and submitted a rare motion claiming negative corpus (absence of proof or the inability to determine a fire’s cause and origin).
During the hearing, Sean was laser sharp in examining the State’s fire investigators. Against all odds, the judge ruled in our favor and the Prosecution had no choice but to dismiss the case.
Sean was smart, imaginative, and relentless in working on my case. He was also
patient and understanding in working with me. I can’t recommend him strongly enough.
I met Criminal Attorney Sean Chapman around the summer of 2011. I had been indictment on three counts of false information. At the time of the indictment, I was suspended from my position as a Border Patrol Agent. I had heard of Mr. Chapman's reputation from his ten years of service with the Department of Justice as a Federal prosecutor before entering private practice as a criminal defense attorney.
I choose Mr. Chapman to represent me in my criminal matter based upon his unique experience as a former assistant United States attorney and a criminal defense attorney. Mr. Chapman's prosecutorial and defense experience proved invaluable to my case. His communication skills, diligence, attention to detail and his professionalism were self-evident throughout. Mr. Chapman always promptly responded to my phone calls and E mails.I can without reservation recommend Mr. Chapman to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney. It was through Mr. Chapman's efforts that he had the charges in the indictment against me dismissed.
When I was FALSELY accused of a sex crime with a minor, I could not have been more fortunate to find such a superb lawyer team working on my behalf. Sean Chapman, being one of the attorneys on my case, worked for over two years, diligently through every detail and meticulously created an outstanding and solid defense.
Sean understood that dealing with CPS needs to be taken very seriously as they do not care about anyone or anything except destroying families. His demeanor with all CPS case workers, managers and “expert witnesses” on the stand during my trial was magnificent! Bringing out the lies that CPS spins and showing the jury exactly what kind of organization they are.
When I told people my lawyer was Sean Chapman, you could see the recognition of respect for that name in their faces, which gave me the encouragement I needed to stay strong through my case. I recommend the Law office of Sean Chapman for even the most serious of cases, especially when dealing with CPS.
As a two time US Marine combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I now have someone, other than a fellow Marine and my other attorney, to owe my freedom to. “NOT GUILTY” on 3 counts and 1 charge completely dismissed. Thank you, Sean!
