The “AV Preeminent” rating is awarded to less than five percent of all attorneys across the United States, and is the highest rating offered by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.

Senior Fellow status in the society is reserved for advanced commitment to and support of the LCA, the Diversity Law Institute and the Trial Law Institute. The LCA is aggressively diverse in its composition. Established as a trial and appellate lawyer honorary society reflecting the American bar in the twenty-first century, the LCA represents the best in law among its membership. The number of Fellowships has been kept at an exclusive limit by design, allowing qualifications, diversity and inclusion to align effectively, with recognition of excellence in litigation across all segments of the bar.

Dependable and reliable
Marc was my savior through my divorce. He guided me though the entire process with compassion and understanding. Thank you Marc for standing by me.

Great attorney. Easy to reach. Prices are reasonable. Solved my issue quickly.
I hired Attorney Chapdelaine to write my mother's Will. He was thorough and very good dealing with my mother and listening to her requests. When I was getting divorced I met with him while considering divorce attorneys. His predictions were on point. He communicated with me on a consistent basis and answered my concerns and questions. His fee was extremely reasonable compared to the estimates from other attorneys. His office is in Saugus an is very convenient to Route 1. I would recommend his office is anyone looking for an attorney to help them.
