Traffic court
Louis has been a close lawyer for years and has helped with all of my legal needs. It was a no brainer to go with him for a recent traffic stop that I felt was unjustified. He always goes above and beyond for his clients.

House closing
My wife and I just closed on our first home and Louis was our attorney. He was fast and efficient. He also gave great advice with the negotiations as we were able to knock down the sale price twice

Traffic Court (non-DUI)
Louis was great-- he made a very stressful circumstance stress-free. Managed to get two tickets dismissed and a small fine (no points) for the third ticket. So relieved!

First Home Purchase
My wife and I retained Mr. Chapman during the purchase of our first home. He was thorough and walked us through every step of the process, patiently answering our questions and ensuring we understood everything. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in NJ.

Estate Planning
Louis B. Chapman provided exceptional legal services, ensuring one's wishes are granted if one cannot advocate for oneself. This is a challenging task, but Mr. Chapman has patience. I would also like to thank Tina Edie, a staff member who guided me through every step to ensure the process went well. I would refer my family and friends to Louis B. Chapman if they need legal services.

Great Service, Highly Recommend
Louis was an absolute pleasure to work with on our first home purchase. He was very diligent with his work and always kept us in the loop as to what was going on behind the scenes with all parties. We had a great experience and could not have had a smoother closing because of Louis. We highly recommend Louis to anyone looking for an attorney for their home purchase/sale.

Amazing Lawyer-Cant Recommend Enough
My wife and I are so glad we found Louis to help with our first home purchase. We were in a bind looking for someone to help us, and Louis came through in the clutch. Louis is an exceptional attorney and was able to guide us through the entire home buying process with ease. Louis is super knowledgeable and was an amazing person to work with from the first time we spoke until our closing, and I truly dont believe we would have been able to get through the legal process as smoothly as we did without him. I highly recommend Louis to anyone looking for an attorney, and will recommend him to anyone I know who is buying or selling a home in the future.

A Lawyer You Can Trust
Working with Louis on our house sale has been a pleasure. He was with us and kept us informed the whole time. He responded quickly to questions and was continually driving towards an on time close date. We rarely leave reviews, but Louis earned this one.

Beyond the call of duty
Mr. Chapman helped me when I was in an extremely difficult legal situation. From the moment I called him through the positive outcome that he negotiated for me, he is first class. He told me what to expect and what will happen. He helped every step of the way. He negotiated with the prosecutor and that resulted in a better outcome that I could have dreamed.Even the judge commented on what a marvelous deal Mr. Chapman was able to agree to with the prosecutor. Thanks to Mr. Chapman, I have a new lease on life. I could never have dreamed of a better outcome. Mr. Chapman brings with him many years of service to The State of New Jersey. He is respected amongst his peers and the Judiciary System at large. That is how he was able to help me. For someone of his stature, he is extremely reasonable in the amount of money that he charges. He even gave me flexibilty in payment options. He is also a pillar of strength and integrity in his personal life. He has been a major contributor to his place of worship. In his community he is very well respected. I highly reccommend Mr. Chapman to anyone who needs legal representation.
