David is your man if you need someone who knows the law and keeps cool under pressure. He represented me against my ex wife and got my support reduced by 1400 dollars a month. I recommend him highly.

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!

Before Mr. Schaffer took on my case he made it quiet clear that I had to be upfront and honest with him and took the time to go through the whole history of my situation. If you are looking for a straight talking Lawyer then you have found one. Mr. Schaffer never makes any empty promises or gives false hope. He is thorough regarding facts and keeps you informed of the process every step of the way. He always took the time to address my questions and concerns and always replied to my calls and emails. Given the complexity of my case which was already in its fourth year and involved two countries I can highly recommend Mr. Schaffer as extremely competent and knowledgeable in his field. He aims for positive results and strives for justice and fairness. If you are unjustly separated from your child and you are looking for an Attorney who is capable of righting a wrong then Mr. Schaffer should be your first stop. International Child Custody cases are not for the faint hearted. Mr. Schaffer excels in this area and gives hope where hope may have otherwise been lost. Personally I feel that I have a lot to be thankful for regarding the work Mr. Shaffer has done for me and my family. I would recommend Mr. Shaffer to any Parent who needs a Professional who will work in partnership with you, who really listens, who will treat you with respect and dignity, who will work endlessly and tirelessly and who will ensure what needs to be done will get done.

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.
