Brent Chapman

With over three decades of experience, Brent has gained tremendous insight into the law and how to successfully navigate the complexities of the judicial system for his clients. Brent is known for his unique skills set – the courage to aggressively fight any battle against the adversary, while still maintaining sensitivity, support and kindness for his clients. He has a unique cross section of abilities that are so often lacking by the typical lawyer – he patiently listens and supports his clients, but then can easily shift gears to be a warrior in the legal arena.

Sara Jackson

Sara Jackson

has been a practicing attorney in New York with a particular emphasis on Family Law, Criminal Defense and Appeals. As a former Assistant District Attorney, she has a wealth of knowledge to draw upon. Most lawyers lack real trial and courtroom experience and are intimidated by it – but not Attorney Jackson. Her home away from home is the courtroom where she thrives. And these skills polished in the criminal court are very applicable to any case setting – if you can succeed there, you can succeed anywhere! The power of persuasion is her forte. And beyond fantastic litigation skills, Attorney Jackson exhibits wonderful compassion for clients.
