Ronald Chapman's law firm is devoted exclusively to the practice of criminal defense in both State and Federal Courts within the State of Florida. For the past 18 years, Mr. Chapman has been representing people who have been accused of committing various types of crimes such as drunk driving, domestic battery, economic crimes, animal abuse, traffic crimes, murder, manslaughter, crimes against children, sex crimes, crimes against the elderly, appeals, and violations of probation.
However, it is not necessary for you to wait until you have actually been charged with a crime before hiring Mr. Chapman. If you hire him while the police and prosecutor's office are still investigating your case, Mr. Chapman may be able to intervene on your behalf in order to help prevent charges from ever being filed against you in the first place.
If you hire Mr. Chapman, he will do all of the following things for you:
* Investigate the prosecutor's case against you.
* Speak with your witnesses.
* Present legal motions to the judge.
* Investigate your defenses.
* Represent you at your trial.
* Try to get the best possible result for you.
If your case does go to trial, you will need a lawyer with trial experience. Mr. Chapman has had over 100 jury trials and hearings during the past 18 years. However, some people who have been charged with a crime want to resolve their legal problem without a trial. If that describes you, Mr. Chapman will try to resolve your case in that manner if at all possible.
Finally, because Mr. Chapman is a sole practitioner, you will be dealing directly with him and not simply with a member of his staff.
