  • Julia Nicole Mcilroy

    I have known Amy Chapman for many years and have had the privilege to watch her in the courtroom. She is without doubt one of the finest criminal defense attorneys in the north bay. She is incredibly smart, thorough, and tough. She is well-respected by judges, fellow defense attorneys, and prosecutors. If (god forbid) I ever needed an attorney, Amy would be the first person I would call.
