David Chapman was recommended to me by a lawyer who is a very good friend, who stated "if he needed a lawyer he would call David Chapman".

Attorney Review
In each of our contacts with Mr. Chapman, we found him to exhibit a most professional demeanor. He was extremely understanding, caring and responsive to our needs/problem. He is articulate and appears to be very well informed about his specific practice area. He answered all our questions and patiently and carefully explained in detail how he would approach our case. After fully pointing out various alternatives and their consequences, he allowed us to make decisions as the situation warranted, even though they might not have been his recommendation. Mr. Chapman was usually available by telephone, but if it was necessary to leave a message or send an email, he responded very promptly. If he was not in the office his staff could tell us just when they expected him to return. We could not have asked for any better representation, based on our first and only experience with this type of legal situation.

Attorney Review
After my husband's death in a motorcycle accident I hired an attorney to represent me. After just three months I began to question the advise I was getting and looked for another attorney to review my case. That is when I found Thomas Anderson and David Chapman. After an initial meeting my case was given over to David Chapman. Their team of professionals ran down every aspect of my case, from where the motorcycle was stored to researching the possibility of transfering my case to another jurisdiction that had speedier trial dates. With Mr. Chapman's help we received a settlement just one year after the accident. His negotiating skills made it possible for me to pay off most of my bills and purchase a new home whrere I feel safe and secure, where I plan to spend many years enjoying a new life. I am thankful everyday to Mr. Chapman and his team of people for giving me this new life and security! Choosing an attorney at a difficult time can be very challenging, take the time to choose the right attorney! It will make a difference to you and your family!
