For several years, I have contracted Mr. Robert Schefter Jr. for contracts and legal issues, and would not think of using another attorney at law. Mr. Schefter is honest, forthright, and responsive. He is not an attorney you will see on television, but is one you will see in the community rendering service.
Robert Schefter was recommended to me by a good friend of mine. When I first met with Robert he explained the law to me ,he then clearly presented to me different options on handling my case. His recommendations were excellent and so was the out come. Also my final bill was much less than the original estimate. I could not be happier.
I had the pleasure of working with Robert Schefter almost 2 years ago. I found him personable and reliable and especially as I am currently not resident in the US, he was professionally reassuring, being fully aware of the circumstances surrounding what had to be done. That is critically important. I live in Japan, a world away and his competence had to be adjudicated through performance from far. He not only delivered on that front but in the result and follow through. All matters were dealt with in an expedient fashion and altogether resolved with his management in a timely manner. Although I'd prefer to not have to repeat that matter going forward, I would feel secure to have him watching my back should the need arise.
A family member was wrongfully arrested following a college campus party. There was an issue of race, police mistreatment, police false reporting. The matter was duly sorted through and by the time of the court appearance date we felt understood and supported. It was swiftly dealt with and we were satisfied that all turned out positively.
...and the representation he provided in my recent DUI case.
There are many attorney’s from which you can choose, but I don’t believe you will find another who will give you the same sense of comfort that you will find in Bobby.
My case began as a dui checkpoint arrest but we faced some unforeseen hurdles and it quickly became very scary for me.
Knowing that I could trust and believe in Attorney Schefter made the days leading up to my sentencing much more tolerable. Each time I found myself over analyzing, stressing over the "what if's" or feeling like I was going to “snap” it was resolved by a phone call to Bobby....his calm demeanor certainly had a way of settling me in those anxious times!!
Attorney Schefter is extremely knowledgeable, respectable, full of integrity, thorough and, above all, he is compassionate – he knew it was the worst time of my life; he never left me to wonder and he understood my tears.
Attorney Schefter handled all aspects of my case. There was not one phone call that I made with a question that went unanswered PERSONALLY; not one. This was not the case with other lawyers I had worked with.
Rather than fast-tracking me into the ARD program and moving on to the next client, he analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of my case. While preparing for trial, he negotiated with the prosecutor and police, enabling me to plead guilty to a lesser charge, not involving DUI, thereby avoiding the need to go to trial altogether.
He covered all the bases and is familiar with all officials who may have an impact on your case. Having an attorney who is able to do that is extremely reassuring.
He is very highly recommended.
Mr. Schefter was a life-saver with my recent DUI case in Pennsylvania. Because I am from out of state, my case was a bit complex. Mr. Schefter handled my case with expert knowledge and a friendly, caring demeanor during the most difficult time in my life. He gave me great advice throughout the time leading up through my sentencing, and because of his great work I am able to move forward in my life in a positive direction.
I had just a minor traffic offense but Bob handled it like it was a more severe problem. He kept me informed every step of the way. The end result was my violation was reduced and I did not get any points on my driving record....which was my goal from the begining. Very proffesional. I will recommend to anyone who ask.
Robert is an outstanding attorney. He is professional and doesn't look/treat at you as a number and more importantly he talks to you in a language that the normal person can relate to and understand. After talking to him the first time, I felt a whole lot better about my situation. Hes a good guy, no doubt about it.
