Meet Attorney David N. Schaffer

As the third child in a family filled with doctors, I have deep interest in helping people. I went with my father when he cared for sick people in our town. I saw the relief he brought to them simply by showing up.

As your attorney, I “show up” for you, too. Your case is what requires my focus and attention. And that’s what it will receive. In my family, we are very science-based when it comes to problem-solving. We want to know the facts in order to determine the solution and treatment. It is the same with your case. Knowing the facts, and the law, I can then determine what we need to “cure” or resolve the issue and attain your goals.

The law is based on facts. Taking an analytical, methodical and scientific approach is often what allows for progress, removes contention and fosters an efficient and effective solution.

Once I take your case, it is my job to ensure you are protected. Do not let my calm and pragmatic style in court mask the fact that I am passionate and fierce advocate for my clients.
