The John Chapman Law Firm
After years in big-firm law, I saw a need for change in Sarasota. I saw 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 does not happen at The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A. 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.
It’s time to step away from large, impersonalized law. At The John Chapman Law Firm, P.A., I offer my clients more than 25 years of experience in Florida law. As a fifth-generation Sarasotan, this community and its people are important to me. Never be a number, and never settle for second-rate service.
My entire career has been representing clients in the Sarasota and Bradenton area. My practice is focused on business and estate litigation issues, and I take pride in the personalized attention I provide to every client I serve.
Why choose Chapman Law
When you need assistance with a serious legal issue, your lawyer should care just as much about the outcome as you do. I take personal interest in every case I accept. Practicing law is more than just a job to me. I hold a strong personal belief that every lawyer owes a duty of care to each client they serve, and that is a responsibility I take very seriously.
You deserve 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 prepare every case as if it is destined for court
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. Negotiating a fair solution is always preferable to going through a long and costly court battle, but if negotiation does not produce a favorable outcome, I am up for the challenge of being by your side in the courtroom.
I am a resolutions-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.
