At Chapman Glucksman Dean & Roeb each of the lawyers in their particular practice group has extensive experience, knowledge and specialized education and training to achieve the best results for our clients. In a complex and challenging world, it is necessary to have specialized practice groups with attorneys who have the depth, experience and education to provide insight that will benefit a specific type of case. The use of specialized practice groups also allows the attorneys in each to share information firm wide on legal developments that directly impact the pro-active representation of our clients.

A number of our lawyers perform within several different practice groups. By taking part in multiple groups, our lawyers remain actively involved in numerous, interrelated areas of legal practice.  Thus, our clients are the immediate beneficiaries of such active interaction, in all areas of our practice, and at all levels of our representation – trial, arbitration, administrative hearings, mediation and appellate.
