David Schaffer is the finest divorce attorney I know. During my very contentious divorce, Attorney Schaffer represented me with high morals, intelligence, and skill. He always provided guidance to protect me from an ex-husband who threatened me many times. I hope many women read this and choose Attorney Schaffer for their counsel, not only to win custody of their children, yet to have the strongest and most accurate support possible throughout the divorce. I know this for a fact because I am also a divorce lawyer.

At attorney that will stand up for what you believe in!

I hired David Schaffer in August of 2013 in a difficult divorce battle that would stretch out over the next 18 months. After extended research, consultation with other attorneys and reading about some media attention David received after other cases, I decided with great confidence that David would be the right man to fight on behalf of my children and I. My ex-wife had an attorney who wasn’t afraid to cross the line of what was not only ethically questionable, but he would also make a point to drag things out, filing motion upon motion in court just to cash in on the award while my ex-wife and I was paying the bills. David will work on behalf of you, he will stand up and argue in court when things are out of control and most importantly, he will keep you and your end result in mind at all times. There are a long list of attorneys who walk around in court with great posture and professional attire, but when they open their mouth in court there is much left to be desired. My wife’s attorney was one of them and I am grateful that when David opens his mouth in court, he is the attorney you want to have battling on your behalf. He’s vicious, confident, and very knowledgeable about the law, something he makes clear in court. Particularly when there’s a trial or hearing, David shines and will fight hard for you.

On another note, David’s entire team of paralegals in the office was nothing but the most wonderful people I had the pleasure of working with during the past 18 months. Katie was incredible and extremely organized, always being able to answer any questions I might have had, making me feel that it wasn’t just any other case they were dealing with.

All of that said, I highly recommend David and Schaffer Law Office. He’s exactly the type of attorney you want when fighting a difficult divorce battle. Great job David and the rest of your team!!!

David Schaffer is all you need!

David is the shield between your ex and your child(ren). When my mom and I met David, we were impressed. He takes the time to evaluate every case and will prepare you for successful outcomes. He will keep your fears away and calm you down in every situation. He is not an attorney that will have sympathy for the opposing party and that is very hard to find. If you don’t hire David for your custody/order of protection/visitation matter you will make a big mistake. He is very personable and I am proud I hired him. He stands out, and is extremely confident in court and he is all you need . David shows the utmost respect, reliability, and trustworthiness and he won’t give you an unrealistic outcome. He is outstanding and well respected by the judges & has a track record of success. Thank you David for all of your hard work!

Wish I had hired Mr. Schaffer in the first place

I hired Mr. Schaffer after firing my first lawyer. My only regret was not hiring Mr. Schaffer in the first place. My divorce had been dragging on for a year already. My ex is a bully and my first lawyer was clearly intimidated by him. Not Mr. Schaffer.

It is obvious that David cared about my case. He made sure I understood what was going on every step of the way. My first lawyer was just the opposite and made me feel like a number.

It is clear that Mr. Schaffer enjoys what he does and knows what he is doing.

I got more than half the assets as well as long term alimony.

I would highly recommend David for anyone going through a divorce, especially if they are not happy with their current lawyer. I learned the hard way it is better to start with quality representation than a cheap lawyer.
