We recently had Mike on our side fighting a construction case and so happy we did. Mike carefully explained all our options and recommended which route he felt would be the better one to take. He effectively left the other party with no options to argue technicalities and we could instead focus on the real issues. Mike is an excellent listener and an even better communicator. He not only kept in touch with us but he also gave us lengthy and detailed explanations of how to tackle each issue, he ALWAYS picked up the phone and always made time to talk. Mike fought for us and we won a settlement we did not expect without having to go to arbitration Mike is the only attorney we have worked with who truly was ready and willing to fight in arbitration, he never pressured us to settle for less instead he showed full confidence is us and in our case. Mike knows his stuff: all the intricacies of construction and has the knowledge to apply the law, he is an incredible pleasant person and his honesty was greatly appreciated. We will definitely work with Mike again and we can highly recommend him to anyone needing a construction attorney as well.

I have used Michael Chapman as legal counsel for numerous pieces of litigation that I have been involved in over the last 15 years, both as a Plaintiff and Defendant. I have found Michael Chapman to be well strategized on the legal plan to pursue each case, and fully versed in maximizing our objectives out of each piece of litigation.
I would without hesitation recommend Michael Chapman to anyone that has complex litigation that requires representation from someone with experience, know how and the ability to resolve the case.

I strongly endorse this lawyer. Michael provides experienced counsel for construction development, construction litigation, general civil litigation and other matters in a cost-effective manner. He provides alot of bang for the buck.
