The John Chapman Law Firm
At The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A., I offer my clients more than 20 years of experience in the practice of Florida law. I have spent my entire career representing clients in Sarasota and Southwest Florida. I focus my practice on business and estate litigation issues, and I take a great deal of pride in the personalized attention I provide to every client.
I come from a big-firm background. I have seen clients hire a firm based on a meeting with one of the named partners only to have their case handed off to a second-year lawyer. That doesn't happen here. When you hire me as your attorney, I personally attend to every aspect of your case. When questions arise, I answer them personally. When court appearances need to be made, I am the lawyer who is standing beside you.
Why Choose Chapman Law
When you are looking for an attorney to help with serious legal issues, it is important that the person you choose cares as much about the outcome as you do. At The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A., I take a personal interest in every case I accept. Practicing law is more than just a job to me. A lawyer owes a certain duty of care to every client he or she serves, and I take that duty very seriously.
When you hire me as your attorney, you get an experienced litigator who is committed to obtaining the best possible result on your behalf. I take a very hands-on, results-oriented approach to your case. I am board certified as a specialist in business litigation by The Florida Bar. I am also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil Mediator. With more than 20 years of experience practicing law in Florida, I offer my clients multiple options to resolve nearly any type of legal dispute.
I Prepare Every Case as If It Is Going to Court
Negotiating a fair solution is always preferable to going through a long and costly court battle. When negotiation does not produce a favorable outcome, however, it is critical that your attorney is up to the challenge. I have a well-earned reputation as skilled litigator, and my opponents know that I am prepared to fight for my clients' rights in court if necessary.
Resolution-Driven Civil Mediator
As a mediator, I serve as a neutral third party who works to help the parties of a dispute reach an agreement that everyone can support. I do not represent any of the parties in these matters, and I do not offer legal advice at any point in the process. My only goal is to facilitate a process that results in resolution without the need for litigation. I also represent clients who are going through mediation.
