Awesome.
Holly kicked some butt. She helped me take my daughter back. Even though we were in a different state, she made sure to stay in touch with us every step of the way. Return your call in a timely manner? Check. Listen to what you want and respect it while also advicing? Check. Answers EVERY single question you have until you're satisfied? CHECK CHECK CHECK. I 100% recommend her. Not only is she awesome at her job, but she also has a great personality and is super sweet. Holly, keep doing you and THANK YOU so much for helping us take my daughter to a safe and loving household. I wish you the best.

Holly handled it!
Mrs. Chapman is an amazing lawyer. I hired her for my contested divorce after experiencing unsatisfactory results with a well-known family law attorney in the local area. She did not disappoint! Mrs. Chapman treated me like a person and not just another case. She listened to my concerns and was upfront and honest regarding my expectations. That being said, she was never rude or dismissive of me even when our opinions differed. Mrs. Chapman knows the law and the Augusta court circuit well. She truly acted on my behalf based on my demands and got me the best possible outcome for my case. I never felt "left in the dark" about what was going on, nor did she drag her feet on getting things done in a timely manner. Mrs. Chapman was reachable throughout the entire process and kept the lines of communication open. Her negotiating skills are exceptional. My contested divorce was settled out of court within 2 months of hiring her! I was not charged ridiculous fees and money that was leftover from my retainer was immediately refunded to me after my case was closed. All in all, Mrs. Chapman is a phenomenal lawyer with integrity. It has been my absolute pleasure to do business with her and I highly recommend her services. Thank you, again, Mrs. Holly Chapman

Extremely positive experience
I reached out to Ms. Chapman for a consultation on an issue I had. She was very responsive and gave me a callback. Despite contacting Ms. Chapman for a free consultation, she took my inquiry very seriously and had a great picture of my situation which tells a lot about how diligent, knowledgeable, and amazing of a human being she is. She listened to me very carefully and was very informative and patient, and explained everything very clearly and in detail. I found her attitude to be extremely positive and assuring and I strongly recommend contacting Ms. Chapman and working with her.

Excellent, Knowledgeable and Professional Service
Located out of state and rushed into a contested divorce process that had to be handled in Richmond County, my case proceeded for more than a year and with significant costs with what I came to realize was ineffective and inept counsel. In conducting a more thorough review of Augusta law firms that handle divorce cases, and after a year of stress and anxiety, I located Davis, Chapman, & Wilder, LLC. Following my initial consultation, I ended my relationship with the current attorney and retained Ms. Chapman to takeover my case. Where the previous attorney failed, Ms. Chapman succeeded. She effectively interacted with my ex-wife's attorney, was responsive to all my needs, and kept me abreast of everything I needed to know about the divorce proceedings. In less than a month and a half and to my benefit, we settled the case. Thanks again!

Holly is AWESOME!
We worked with Holly Chapman in a really difficult time for our family. She was incredible-- professional, gave us great counsel, was empathetic and really understood our concerns and worked with us to get really positive outcomes. Holly was realistic throughout our time, and also helped us achieve our desired outcome from our situation! I'm so grateful that our friend recommended DCW to us and that Holly worked with us to the end! She even followed up and was sure that we understood what steps we could take in the future if we ever needed to take further legal action! I highly recommend Holly for any of your legal needs!

We were really pleased to have Holly Chapman represent us during our journey and we highly recommend her.
We are so thankful to have retained Holly Chapman and her staff from DCW attorneys to represent us during our adoption journey. When we found Holly we were really distraught. We had started working with another attorney before her and were poorly represented and given false hope. We were struggling to believe if anyone could help us with our case. Holly was caring, professional and she answered all of our questions. Her communication was impeccable during the entire process and that made it easy to navigate. We truly appreciate the fact that we were able to rely on Holly’s expertise and advice during our journey. We are fortunate to have met Holly and we will always be grateful for her help.

Great attorney..... Love her
Miss Chapman represented me on a charge that I was sure I was going to do time for. She got me great results, and I ended up getting probation and fines. I was very satisfied and plan to discuss other charges with her. Thank you Miss. Chapman.

Saved My Bacon!
Holly Chapman represented me when I got caught up and charged with a felony. It was super stressful, but she talked me through every step and worked hard on my case. She ended up getting it dismissed. I will never go to anyone else.

Great lawyer
I have followed Ms Chapman’s guidance on legal manners since 2009. Her advice has always been accurate, and wellresearched and articulated. She is my go to for legal issues and should I ever need to retain a lawyer without a doubt it would be Ms Chapman.

Terrific lawyer
Represented me on a criminal case and was great. Explained the process so I understood every possible outcome and she always had time for my questions. Plus the outcome was even better than I could have imagined. I would never go to anyone else.

Did a great job
Mrs Chapman represented me for an insurance dispute. I couldn't get anywhere with them on my own, but she took care of everything in no time.
