About Joshua Schiffer

About me

I have had several roles in my career as an attorney. I started as a law clerk to a Superior Court Judge (felony and civil matters) in Cobb County, where I was raised. After that stretch, I worked in real estate until I grew bored and became a trial attorney.

Finally.. Excitement.

After several years with Fulton County and the State of Georgia as a senior trial attorney and supervisor, I grew restless with the limitations on my practice and the Indigent Defense system in Georgia. 

While attending a few regional seminars, and the intensive, three week residential Trial Lawyers College, run by Super-Lawyer Gerry Spence in Duboise, WY (, I decided that I needed to do more for people and less for the State. 

I started The Schiffer Firm, LLC where I take cases that need justice and the clients that go with them.

While running the Schiffer Firm, LLC, I grew to specialize in Domestic Violence Criminal Defense and Family Violence Plaintiffs Civil Law along with using my personal history to work extensively with the Addiction community in drug and alcohol cases. The Schiffer Firm, LLC is an active member of the Legal community.

After several years I partnered with former police officer and Fulton County Assistant Solicitor General, Douglas B. Chanco, of Doug specializes in DUI work and has extensive professional training in that area. ChancoSchiffer, P.C. was Founded.

In late 2013 we added Mr. David Olson as a partner to captain our Personal Injury portfolio.  Mr. Olson is a former Prosecutor as well as former Insurance Defense Counsel for one of the most prestigious firms in the Southeast.  He litigated millions of dollars in cases for the Big Corproations unti he switched sides, Joining ChancoSchiffer P.C. as a Partner.
