Portland, Oregon Client Heidi V.

“You don’t have any idea what the social security disability decision you obtained for me means.

I am very pleased that I went with Art Stevens. I couldn’t be happier with my results.

I can’t say enough good things about Art and his staff. I can’t speak more highly of anyone than I do Jennifer. She was always there for me. She was kind and called me back immediately if I had any questions. They guided me through the entire process.

This team is impressive! Art did his research and knew my case inside and out before we went to trial. Art was excellent at presenting a complex case in a style that everyone could understand. I couldn’t believe how organized and knowledgeable Art and his team were. They knew as much about my case as I did. Amazing would be an understatement.

This is an honest firm that gives everything they have and does their homework to obtain results for their clients. They are very sincere in their approach and Art does a spectacular job working with the experts.

If you are looking for the best law firm to take care of you, call Black Chapman Petersen and Stevens.” Heidi V.


“I was very comfortable with Black Chapman Petersen and Stevens and they were very responsive to my concerns.

During the handling of my case, both my lawyer Dennis Black and the legal assistant always returned my calls within a reasonable time and responded promptly. They clearly explained the nature of my legal case and what to expect. They always took the time to answer any questions I had about my case.

I was very satisfied with the results obtained in my case. If I ever need an attorney for this type of purpose, I will definitely come to you.” Connie B.


“If I represented a law firm I would want it to be similar to yours. The communication between Wendy and myself was outstanding in that she ALWAYS kept in touch, kept me up to date and I never felt patronized or stupid. I enjoyed a rapport with Tom Petersen. Tom met with us an extra time to answer some questions we had. I appreciated it.” Scott B.


“Amazing, Awesome, Professional, Curtious, Wonderful, Personable People. THANK YOU Dennis and Deborah! Every time I had any questions, or concerns, my lawyer’s team would promptly return all my calls, even if we’d already been over the matter. If I could use Black Chapman Petersen and Stevens for any and all legal matters, I WOULD!!!!!!!!” Emily Russell


“I was very impressed with the level of communication I received from both Art Stevens and his assistant Jennifer Hall. Jennifer came in mid-case for me and hit the ground running. Jennifer always called back when she said she would and was always one step ahead of anything I thought of. She was able to get things done very quickly and most all of my doctors offices commented on how much they enjoyed dealing with such a nice person. She was kind and her level of honest care for the client was very apparent. Thank you so very much Art Stevens and Jennifer Hall for winning this case for me after so many years of waiting. You were both AWESOME!!!” — Dauna Setzkorn

“Thank you to the law offices of BLACK CHAPMAN WEBER & STEVENS and especially Art Stevens for representing my son Ted Giba with his application & subsequent appeals to the Social Security Department regarding his disability claim. After numerous set backs & denials,Mr. Stevens & his Professional Staff were ALWAYS available, knowledgeable, & supportive throughout the entire process.We were constantly contacted & were kept informed about appointments & court appearances. The most informative part of this process was to observe the Professional Abilities & expertise of Mr. Stevens provided with not only his written responses in rebuttal to Social Security denials but also his knowledge & professionalism in the courtroom. Mr. Stevens has also helped us (through this case) to help my son rebuild his confidence & self esteem. Again, Thank You Mr. Arthur Stevens & Staff especially Jennifer, & Donette & everyone at Black Chapman Weber & Stevens for their professionalism & support.” – Jim & Ted Giba

“I’m most grateful for the help that I received from Mr. Petersen, Wendy and Chrissy, my mentality after the accident was such that I could in no way have handled the details they did, and their support was wonderful.” — Betty Shotliff


“I was very pleased and impressed with the combination of professional, yet personal service that I received. Mr. Petersen and his staff were always friendly and kind, always returned my phone calls and emails promptly and I felt as though they all genuinely cared about my case, that it was important to them too. I would like to thank all of them for making the whole process understandable and as easy on us as they possibly could. It was such a reassuring feeling to have them taking care of everything.” — Christine McDougall

“Art Stevens represented me in a workers compensation case last year, and I would like to publicly thank him for the excellent service he did. First of all, communication between Art and myself was very good!. Any calls or inquiries made by me were promptly answered and all questions were answered in a way that I could understand and feel comfortable with.
I would recommend Art, or any of his associates, for being as professional, yet down to earth, as can be done. I was treated as a human being and not just a number. If, in the future, I need professional representation regarding legal matters, I would not hesitate to call on Art first. I already know that if Art doesn’t think he’s the best man for the job, he knows who to recommend to handle what specifics I may need.” — Bob Hull
