5.0 stars 6 totalReview Sean Chapman
I was desperately looking for an honest attorney because the matter at stake involved one of the most important persons in my life, my mother. My mother was facing felony charges, not one or two, but six of them. Our entire family was in disbelief and torn apart. A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, was facing six counts of level six felony charges. It turns out that my mother had a case pending for animal cruelty from 10 years ago and had no knowledge of it. It turned out that my mother’s prior legal counsel from 10 years ago had given her misleading information, making her believe her case was over and that she had nothing else to worry about. My mother, who only speaks Spanish, trusted them. Ten years later my mother was arrested at an international airport because of an outstanding warrant issued by the State of Arizona for the case that she was made believe was over. She was released on bail in California, but was to appear in Arizona. Now my mother was 10 years older and battling many medical conditions that unfortunately became worse after her arrest. That was not our only worry though, although my mother has lived most of her life her in the United States, she is only a resident. Her immigration status would be greatly affected by the outcome of the case. To top it off, the person who lied to her and who was fully responsible, the only person who could clear things up was now dead.
What would be of our family if she was taken away? That was only one of the many questions and worries that circulated every family member’s mind. For many nights I couldn’t sleep thinking of what might be my mother’s fate if we didn’t come across an attorney who we could trust all the way. One of my family’s biggest fear was hiring an attorney who might just take our money and dump the case since we were in California trying to hire an Arizona attorney without meeting them in person. After consulting various attorneys by phone, one attorney stood out, Mr. Sean Chapman. Mr. Chapman spoke in a calm manner and took time to get as much detail as he needed before we even hired him. No other attorney would go beyond the initial phone consult without asking for payment. We knew he was the attorney we could trust with my mother’s case. We placed everything in God’s hands and we hired Mr. Chapman without even meeting him in person, but when we finally did get to meet him we knew we didn’t make a mistake in trusting him. My mother resides in California and the case was in Arizona, which meant that traveling back and forth for hearings would be a financial burden. Thankfully, my mother only appeared for her initial hearing, there after Mr. Chapman was able to waive her presence for the hearings for several months.
An outstanding member to Mr. Chapman’s team is his assistant Serena. Throughout the case Mr. Chapman and Serena kept us informed of all the details about the case. Communication was excellent. When I would call the office, Serena was so well informed about the case that she would almost always answer questions my mother and I had. If Serena didn’t have an answer for us she would have Mr. Chapman call us back that day or the next. Serena was also very helpful in translating info for my mother. Finally after many hearings, Mr. Chapman wrote a very detailed motion in which he demonstrated his thorough knowledge of the law and of my mother’s case. It was evident, through his close attention to meticulous detail, that he spent countless hours doing research to provide as much evidence as he could to get my mother’s case dismissed. Thanks to God and Mr. Chapman, a few days after the motion was submitted the case was dismissed. We will forever be thankful with Mr. Chapman for bringing back peace and happiness to our family. For all of you, who are out there desperately looking for an ethical, knowledgeable, caring, and trustworthy attorney, consider Mr. Chapman because we did and that’s the best thing we could have ever done.

Don't worry about the case, that's my job to worry for you.
I am writing you this because of our appreciation of your hard work, knowledge and professionalism.
With confidence we can say you literally saved our family.
In the late spring of 2013 when my wife was charged with numerous counts, we didn’t know what to do or where to go.
We were angry, confused, depressed and felt hopeless.
Luckily for us you where recommended by a personal friend.
I have to admit that the first time we met, I wasn’t sure you would be able to take the case.
On the day we went to court for the very first time in our lives, I was very impressed with your confidence and strong personality.
The way you carried yourself and the respect you received from others in court was impressive and I knew we were in good hands.
My wife had numerous nights when she would cry herself to sleep because of the high level of stress and uncertainty of our future.
Until that one day we had our meeting in your office. We addressed our concern and you calmly said “don’t worry about the case, that’s my job to worry for you”.
Since then my wife and I just took our hands off the steering wheel and left you in control.
We are so thankful we did. You guide us, explained everything with great detail and told us what to expect in court.
Every time when we had to go court I was confident in your knowledge and abilities to handle our case.
Not only where you able to drop all felony charges and had the court issue an unsupervised probation, but you also eliminate the civil charges too.
I would highly recommend you to anyone who needs professional help.
Again, words can’t really express how very thankful we are with your services.
On a side note please thank your assistant Serena.
She’s a real gem in the office. Not only did she made us feel warm and welcomed, but she also recommended good places to eat in Tucson.

Attorney at Law Sean Chapman was essential in our defense. He helped us every step of the way understand what all the possibilities were and what our options were. Thankfully, he never sugar coated anything either. He made sure we fully understand what could happen so we could make the best decision for us. He gave us all the information and then allowed us to make our decision about what we felt was best for our situation. He then went forward with our choice and did all he could to help us achieve the best outcome. He was always prepared and thorough in his defense and we felt confident we had the best representation. We would recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel!

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!
