Louis and Michael will take care of your real estate transactions. I’ve sold and bought a home through this firm and I trust that they have my best interest in mind and will advise me on the best course of action. Thanks Louis! I look forward to the next deal!

Can’t say enough about the job Louis did for me during my real estate closing. Not only was he able to negotiate a large sellers credit for me, he was always available to speak to me personally when I needed throughout the entire process. His knowledge, expertise, and professionalism made the everything great. Thanks again.

I received a very troubling speeding ticket in early January 2016. From a legal standpoint, I was at risk of losing my license and potentially seeing outrageously inflated insurance premiums for the next 5 years. I met with Mr. Chapman after finding him on this website. He was very friendly, responsive and patient with me. I had many questions as I was skeptical of him or anyone being able to deliver on something like this. He made my court experience a complete breeze. Showed up, on time, assured me everything would be ok (I was super nervous.) and met with the prosecutor immediately to negotiate my case. Without specifics, now the ticket is wholly a non-concern and my insurance is completely unaffected moving forward. I incurred a small fee from the court, and further more, Mr. Chapman spoke on my behalf to the judge, which led him to reduce the fee by another 50%. Mr. Chapman met all expectations set forth and delivered more than I could ever ask for. He will be my attorney for life. Thanks Uncle Lou.
