I hired Robert William Chapin to represent me in a criminal trial in Seward County Nebraska. I was arrested on some private farmland and taken to jail from that location. The Nebraska State patrol with the help of the Seward county sheriffs department drove the defendants vehicle off the private farmland to the Seward Motorfreight parking lot of the I-80 exit.

After a month in jail the preliminary hearing was held, I then found out that I was being charged with various crimes which happen at this parking lot in Seward. Also charged with driving to this location. I have never been to or drove to this location in my life.

I hired Robert William Chapin of Lincoln. {Bill Chapin} He told me he would prove this arrest and arrest location were fabricated by law officials.

Walking up to the court house he informs me that he didn't have enough time to prepare for trial. Says everthing he can to try and get you to fire him that day.

The Seward County attorney Wendy Elston put fabricated witness's on the stand, which gave false testimony to the jury placing the defendant at this Seward Motor freight parking lot. Chapin would not impeach these witness's with available evidence. He would not help me obtain the dispatch records from the State Patrol or Seward County Communications which would prove I was arrested at a different location.

He helps the prosection to cover up a crooked trial. He subpoena witness's for you on your behave. While there in the hall way of the court house. The judge will close the trial for the day. Chapin will go out and release the witness's from the subpoena. The next day your wonder where your witness's are, he'll tell you I don't know.

He asked for six continuances threw out the trial because he was not prepared and there are loop holes in the discovery turned over to the defense. But he does not file a affidavit with these continuance motions per NEBRASKA LAW.

I have never been to this arrest location in my life. But thanks to Robert William Chapin I went to prison for it. Lost my appeal because he filed no affidavit with these continuance motions. Court of appeals said he had time to prepare. A Competant lawyer could of proved the State was lying, impeached State witness's, made arguments at trial which could of been appealed and won.

Don't end up studying the law in prison. I will give anybody who reads this the best advice in the world. The legal system is not honest, jurys believe lying state officials and cops. You have one chance to prove your innocent in trial, don't ruin your chance by hiring a crooked lawyer like Chapin Law office. He's done helping you the day you pay him money!!

The high court neglected this Question !! Would this family of had a chance to save their family farm if, {Chapin law office, Bill Chapin would of showed up at the Scheduled bankruptcy hearing like he was hired to do} The fact is if this lazy incompetent attorney would of showed up at the hearing the family might of had a chance of saving this farm. I would guess someone wanted this farm and payed Chapin law office more money then his client not to show up at this hearing, mabe the bank. This lawyer would sell out his own family for more money, he's a lowlife crook!
