Beware - Do your Due Diligence before your deal with Mr. Schaffer like I should have before hand. I had a simple matter on needed paperwork supplied to the court with me being out of county. HE NEVER DID IT (which I later found was simple to do) , and this was after having me meet him at the wrong courthouse, getting dates confused at another and as I feel not being in his clients best interest. Makes you think if leaving the DA's Office was an option?

Jerry represented my young adult son at a critical time of his life. Jerry took over from the public defender and immediately changed the direction of my son's case. My son's future would likely have been devastated had he stayed with the P.D. I found Jerry to be very well respected among his peers, including prosecutors who are on the other side of his cases. Jerry also seems to really respect the process and the people involved and, as a result, the players express their admiration for Jerry. He treats his clients with compassion, gives them his undivided attention and offers brutal honesty when necessary. I would recommend Jerry Schaffer to anyone in legal trouble!

He never discussed my case with me. He was ready to plead to something I did not agree with. Took my money, and then never finished my case.

He is a complete waste of your money. I hired him for a DUI case, and he pushed my case for nearly a year. He was basically paid to postpone trial. He didn't get me a better offer , and never mentioned that he wasn't going to. Then why let me pay you for over 6 months if you didn't even fight for me ? Oh he seems nice, but will not talk to me after that. I had to do a certain amount of AA meetings, and turn them in every month. Don't you think it's a good idea to , I don't know, call me before court? He'd call in the morning and I'd have to run to court super rushed. He never called me back and will only text you. Oh and the worst part, which was why he was fired.... This DUI case was filed after another case was settled and there was a warrant issued. For six months I had a warrant that he told me took care of. And I was arrested!!! In jail for two days until they figured it was just paperwork. Great job Jerry.

I was unjustly accused of some pretty serious "life killer" stuff. My life was in shambles. Jerry was up front from the beginning at ALL the possibilities that could happen to me and what I could do about it. Week after week, he kept me posted on the progress of my case. He was very reassuring and kept me relatively calm. Jerry knows people. He knows good people in high places. He helped to get my case in the right hands and Iâ€™ll forever be grateful to him as my case was thrown out and rejected. Heâ€™s not the least expensive lawyer on the block but when your life is on the line, it shouldnâ€™t matter. Heâ€™s the best at what he does. He knows the system pretty well. Heâ€™s a genuinely nice guy and will not give up on you. Seriously. You want Jerry in your corner and Iâ€™m so thankful to have found him.
