About Me

I founded Schiffman Family Law, LLC, because from the start of my legal career I always felt a personal calling to assist people during one of life's most significant transitions. I treat each and every case with close personal attention to resolve the issues for every one of my clients.  When not attending to my cases, I believe it is essential that I remain aware of emerging practices by pursuing the latest issues and trends within the practice of family law.  


While the name recognition and cache of larger law firms leads some to believe that the level of expertise or success rate would be greater, after a career that included my working at various size firms, I came to the realization that founding my own practice allowed me the greatest freedom and opportunity to provide a higher level of personal service and attention to my clients, eliminating the non-casework distractions of a law firm practice.


I am here to personally answer your questions and address all your issues during this process so you may resolve matters and move forward with your life. It is my priviledge to be of assistance to my clients and I am proud to have worked with well over two thousand people thus far in my career.
