I can honestly say that R. Shafer has helped me in my most recent case and worked a miracle. I was charged for drug poss w/intent to sell and scored 49 months in prison based off my prior criminal convictions (juvenile charges).
I served two days in jail and received adjudication withheld. I wouldn't have made a different choice for an attorney for this case! I'd highly recommend him. Job well done & thank You!
Only thing I can say negative is if you want to discuss your case or concerns with him, you have to book an appointment. He's a very busy man and doesn't give out his personal cellphone.

I hired Robert for my first time Felony drug offense... The man simply talks you up about how he can do this, do that, and how well he knows the Judge, and golfs with the man all the time... Straight bullshit! He talked more about his cars and how perfect his life is than actually helping me and giving me solid advice! And made up a story about him catching a felony drug offense back in his days to make me feel better... All lies! Contradicts himself everytime you visit him, promises you he can do this, and that, but never follows through on his word... On top of that he assignes his part-time lawyer to represent me in court after I spent all that money to hire "Robert Shafer" not his part-time associate... Didn't warn me or inform me on what to expect after court, and won't reply back to my calls for questions and concerns after multiple attempts... Stay away from this guy. He is a wannabe Donald Trump of Lawyers, Full of himself, and wants 1 thing and 1 thing only. Your money!

Robert Shafer as well as his entire staff were excellent and conveniently located right next to the courthouse. Not only did they get me in right away and take care of any concerns I had he genuinely cares about you and your case. He doesn't just sit back cut the first deal offered and let the pieces fall, he really works for the best possible outcome for you. He's very efficient no nonsense and doesn't feed you any baloney or false promises. I was happy that he didn't try to BS me just to get me to hire him like several other attorneys did or try to imply that the outcome was based off of what I was going to pay. Overall I would say that if I ever had any legal problems or had a family member have any legal issue would definitely hire Robert Shafer because I trust him to get the job done.

I highly recommend Robert Shafer & Associates if you are ever in need of a defense attorney. His entire staff is the most competent group of attorney's and assistant's you will ever need. My family was treated with compassion and respect during an extremely stressful time. My calls, if not answered immediately, were always returned quickly by either Mr. Shafer or his paralegal Lisa. There is no question that I will use Shafer & Associates again if in need of a defense attorney. They are without question the BEST defense team you will ever need.

After meeting with Mr. Shafer about him handing a case for me in Clay County I must say I was impressed. He talked a good game to me about how he knew the prosecutor in my case and would make good things happen for me...after paying him, he never even showed up in court with me and he always send someone else with some excuse about why he couldn't be there . And good luck getting him on the phone. You can talk to Lisa all day long - I nicknamed her the gate keeper - getting passed her is like getting pass a locked gate. He was sure quick to take my money but he never did what he said he would for me and couldn't even be a man and tell me to my face, or even over the phone he didn't know what he was doing! RUN!

I went to consult with Mr. Schafer regarding a complex drug case. He never listened to what I had to say about how i was arrested. He just kept going on and on about how he used to be in charge of the state attorneys office and had relationships with the police. It felt like he would have plead me out in the back of the police car if he could have. When I questioned him about how to beat the stop in a suppression hearing he said judges never grant those motions! Needless to say I consulted and hired another lawyer.

Mr. Shafer’s firm represented my son in a complex property crime/drug case. Mr. Shafer’s office kept me informed and up to date. One of the attorneys was there for every court appearance. His office did not have much to work with as my son had pretty much confessed to all the charges so there was not much he could do to mount a defense. However I feel his office did everything possible for my son and my son’s sentence was considerably less that the other two codefendants.
The truth is the state attorneys for the Fourth Judicial Circuit play extreme hardball and you need an attorney who knows how to deal with the SAOs office in Jacksonville. I think Mr. Shafer’s office fits that role. I recommend him.

Had a DUI of which I know they had no reason to pull me over and hired the Shafer firm. This kind of case is usually not won from what I hear by the defense attorney's. It took 10 months and a lot of court visits on my behalf but through diligant fighting and investigating what I thought at best would be a reckless driving turned out to be all charges dropped. I am so glad I chose this firm which came highly recommended by other friends. Both Robert and Zack a father and son team, did above and beyond my expectation. Lisa the paralegal was also amazing when it came to communication and any time I called in. This team is exactly what you need on your side.
