Americans pride themselves on their individuality, their freedom and their system of laws. We are a nation of laws and lawyers are a crucial part of that system. Individuals need an effective advisor and a champion of their interests. The firm seeks in each case to provide individualized, prompt and professional services to meet the needs of its clients.
Immigration Law: In immigration law, D J Chapman Law employs a wide range of legal components to provide businesses, employers and individuals with strategic solutions to their immigration needs. The firm covers a wide variety of immigration cases ranging from employer and self-sponsored cases to investor and family based cases. Immigration law is very complex and understanding the law is really a collegial effort with other lawyers nationally. To remain on the cutting edge of access to the most up to date information and strategy, Mr. Chapman has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association for the last 15 years.
Personal Injury: The firm’s work in the area of personal injury seeks compensation for injuries suffered by individual clients in a wide variety of situations. Although financial compensation can never completely heal all injury it is our system’s best mode of compensation. The firm pursues all compensation to which the injured client is entitled. To this end Mr. Chapman is a member of the North Dakota Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice, which are organizations geared toward the needs of trial lawyers.
Commercial Collections and Litigation: The business of America is business and our system operates in large part upon trust and confidence. Businesses enter contractual relationships with other businesses in large part based upon trust. When trust is broken the firm is proud to serve as the vindicator of the interests of its clients. Whether it be cash flow or compliance with other contractual responsibilities, the firm stands ready to assist in maintaining confidence in the contractual transactions which serve as the framework for the success of the American system of business.
Professional Responsibility and Ethics: Although conventional wisdom is that the public views lawyers in a less than favorable light, no profession is more tightly self-regulated than the legal profession. Whether a lawyer has done nothing wrong, stumbled into an ethical problem they did not foresee or simply made bad decisions, the firm recognizes that lawyers are human and suffer great stress and pressures in any situation where their ethics and professionalism are questioned. This firm happily seeks to serve as the advocates advocate in both the state where Mr. Chapman is licensed to practice and in the arena of federal immigration law. Ethics are not merely common sense. Many issues are complex and to that end Mr. Chapman maintains memberships in the American Bar Association Center for Professional Responsibility and the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers.
