Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer

Founded over 28 years ago in Chelsea by the late Alan Chapman, the law firm that bore his name became Chapman & Chapman, P.C., when Randy Chapman left the Essex County District Attorney’s Office to join his father in private practice. Alan Chapman was a top criminal defense lawyer, handling some of the area’s most notorious murder cases, such as the so-called “Blackfriars Massacre” trial and the “Sammy White’s Brighton Bowl” murders. Randy Chapman has been practicing for 25 years and continues the tradition of excellence and integrity in client service that his father established.
