David J. Chapman

David Chapman concentrates his practice on immigration law, legal ethics and malpractice, and constitutional law.  David has practiced law for 13 years. With a wide range of experience, David is a tremendous asset to the clients he serves throughout the United States, as well as those in other countries. Additionally, having 13 years of professional practice experience, David has broadened his service base to include services to include ethics and professional responsibility and constitutional law.

In the area of immigration, David advises clients on a wide range of issues related to employment and business based visas, such as hiring non citizens, assistance with compliance audits, and representation relating to immigration law enforcement. As an immigrant and naturalized citizen, David knows family based immigration from a very personal perspective. Before narrowing his primary focus to employment and business based visa cases, David gained experience handling a broad spectrum of immigration issues. He has worked extensively on cases involving criminal charges and convictions as they relate to immigration law.

David is a member of the Texas, Minnesota and North Dakota State Bar Associations, as well as the Federalist Society, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), the American Bar Association (ABA), the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) and the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility. David has served as a frequent speaker and author on immigration related topics. He has also appeared as a guest on radio in the United States and Canada to discuss United States immigration law.

David is also avid supporter of American business as the avenue to the future growth and success for the nation.  Government does not create economic growth—businesses and individual Americans do.  This firm belief in the ingenuity of American business has led David to focus more and more on the business community in his practice and to assist them in bringing the very best talent to be found worldwide into the American workforce.  The goal is not to supplant the American worker, but to supplement our already great workforce and make the American business community an even more formidable force internationally.  To this end the firm holds membership in the Fargo-Moorhead Area Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Bend, Texas, Chamber of Commerce, the Pearland, Texas, Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

David, his wife and son currently reside in West Fargo, ND, with their Golden Retrievers, Dexter and Darby.
