Law Firm Announces Name Change, New Managing Partner and New Office Locations

Share Article

LakinChapman LLC now SL Chapman LLC. Nationally recognized trial lawyers establish new office locations.

Effective January 16, 2012, LakinChapman, LLC is known as SL Chapman LLC, and Robert W. Schmieder II will serve as the firm’s Managing Partner. The firm’s practice areas include personal injury, pharmaceutical, and commercial litigation.

Bradley M. Lakin, the firms Founding Partner, and the late retired Judge Charles W. Chapman formed the firm in 2009. Lakin said, “We had a shared vision—to provide aggressive, results-oriented service to our clients. With our talented professionals, we also looked forward to and planned for the evolution of the firm. This is a part of that progression.” That progression, however, was delayed by the loss of Judge Chapman in May of 2011.

“These steps resume that process, while fulfilling Judge Chapman’s requests, continuing our philosophy, and honoring his legacy,” said Schmieder. “This is just the beginning.”

SL Chapman LLC will have two local offices in downtown St. Louis and Alton. The St. Louis office will be 330 North Fourth Street, Suite 330, St. Louis, Missouri 63102. The Southern Illinois office will be One Court Street, Alton, Illinois 62002. “We anticipate opening an office in the southwestern part of the United States too,” said Schmieder. “The plans are in place and an announcement will be in short order,” he said.

“Our clients will continue to receive the highest quality of representation,” said Schmieder. “These and other upcoming changes will only enhance that representation and client service.”

SL Chapman's new site is available at New and exciting announcements are forthcoming.
