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.

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!
