T. Justin Chapman

Justin’s practice focuses on complex litigation. He has experience litigating an array of claims involving construction, products liability, toxic torts, breach of contract, indemnity, defamation, liquor liability, medical malpractice, long-term care, employment law, motor vehicle liability, premises liability, professional and executive liability, workers' compensation defense, and insurance coverage. He litigates creatively and aggressively, but never at the expense of practicality. Lawsuits do not exist in a vacuum and Justin carefully considers each client's specific needs when developing case strategies and recommending courses of action.

In addition to litigating, Justin has also represented businesses, music industry professionals, and other individuals in a variety of contractual negotiations and transactions.

Justin has served as an arbitrator for the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas since 2009. He has also performed pro bono work for Philadelphia VIP, the Homeless Advocacy Project, and Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.

Justin was named a “Rising Star” by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers in 2014 and 2016, a designation received by only 2.5 percent of Pennsylvania lawyers.
