About me

The Law Offices of Louis B. Chapman provides exceptional legal services as an attorney with over 30 years experience helping people like yourself,  your family and friends, buy and sell homes, preparing their Wills and Estate Planning Documents, representing  people in traffic courts in New Jersey, and in their accident cases. I am easy to get to with two convenient offices in Wayne NJ and in Teaneck NJ. I am large enough to serve you and small enough to know you. I moved up to New Jersey from Texas in 1981. I have lived and practiced in Passaic County ever since. I enjoy my family, friends and attending sporting events. I am a die hard baseball fan and enjoy going to NYC to see Broadway shows. I have been very active in community and religious affiliations for decades as well as my children's schools. My professional memberships include the American Bar Association (1984-present), New Jersey Bar Association (1984-present), Passaic County Bar Association (1984-present). My true passion is taking pride in my practice. For over 30 years I have been due diligent with treating my customers with the care and professionalism they warrant. I take pride in returning calls and getting back to attorneys, realtors and lawyers as needed.
