Jeff has represented us in multiple construction related issues ranging from contract preparation and review to litigation. He successfully represented the City in a claim against a contractor for defective work resulting in a settlement covering the full cost of repairs. Jeff’s expertise in municipal construction law has proven time and again an invaluable resource to us as we proceed with a variety of building projects.
Jeff has been counsel to us on several matters. In each of those situations, we have found him to have an excellent legal foundation, a common sense approach and a keen technical understanding of our business. His relationship based approach to dealing with difficult issues is also in alignment with our company principles. We appreciate having Jeff as a trusted business partner.
I’ve worked with Erik and the Chapman Firm on both litigation and transactional matters and have come back time and again for guidance and representation. Erik has repeatedly done a great job at keeping my stress level over legal matters to a minimum when it otherwise threatened to distract from and seriously impact my day-to-day business operations. Erik’s practical and outcome-driven approach also repeatedly helped me and my company obtain beneficial results at a very reasonable price point. Erik was sensitive to the resource drain that legal fees can often be for small businesses, and was extremely cost-effective for the work I needed. Moreover, his and the Chapman Firm’s wide-ranging business, employment, and litigation experience meant I didn’t have to shop my disparate needs around to numerous firms. At the Chapman Firm I found a dedicated team who not only took the time to learn and understand my business, but who also truly wanted to see it succeed.
EarthTech highly recommends Erik and the team at The Chapman Firm for legal needs in construction and business law. They are passionate about their service and provide their clients with incredible legal counsel and action. You can expect prompt and precise communication coupled with excellent case strategy. Their bias is to deliver results. Whether that is onboarding field experts for a complex multi-discipline dispute, or tactfully negotiating a case, you can be assured Erik and the team will work assertively on your behalf.
Over the course of my career, I have worked with dozens of lawyers. Among all of those, Erik Moskowitz stands out. It is a great comfort to know that I can count on Erik’s expertise, judgment, responsiveness and professionalism. He is always a pleasure to work with and I am always pleased with the quality of the work.
