Strongly recommend working with Chapman Law Group. Just completed our update to our Estate Planning and such a simple process from start to finish. Mr David Mammel was incredible. He was so detailed, listened to our requests, asked follow up questions for what we wanted and provided recommendations. The office is also very nice, welcoming and clean so felt very comfortable from the moment we walked in both pre covid and during covid. If you dont have an estate plan, I strongly recommend getting one to plan for the future and to also use Chapman Law Group.

I first worked with David Mammel on my Estate Plan in 2010. One of the things I appreciate most is that he is clear with his communication so I can understand exactly what is needed to set up and update my Trust the way I want it. The questions he asks are thoughtful and probing to make sure I consider the many issues that can arise after I'm gone. He also checks in to make sure I keep my Trust updated as I add grandchildren and other relationships I want to include in my Trust. I highly recommend David.

I’m entering my 30th year of being a financial planner and have been in countless meetings with estate planning attorneys. I’m not sure when I’ve experienced a more diligent, thorough, and caring approach with a client than shown to my mother and me after my father passed. Thank you to attorney David Mammel! I wish I could post 6 out of 5 stars.

We have worked with David Mammel for the past 5 years to consult, draft and execute a comprehensive Estate Plan. Our matter was handled professionally and timely; David was available and responsive to answer our questions. When our family situation changed a few years later, we did not hesitate to have David prepare the First Amendment to the Plan.

He did so with a degree of professionalism and integrity rarely encountered. David was thorough, prompt, detailed, accurate and complete in every instance. Beyond that he is a delightful man. I would highly recommend his services and those of his company.
