    • I do not recommend Jerry Schaffer.
    • I hired Jerry 1-3 years ago.
    • Jerry handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    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.

  2. This guy is a complete moron.

    • I do not recommend Jerry Schaffer.
    • I hired Jerry 1-3 years ago.
    • Jerry handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    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 recommend Jerry Schaffer.
    • I hired Jerry more than 3 years ago.
    • Jerry handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    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 I’ll forever be grateful to him as my case was thrown out and rejected. He’s not the least expensive lawyer on the block but when your life is on the line, it shouldn’t matter. He’s the best at what he does. He knows the system pretty well. He’s a genuinely nice guy and will not give up on you. Seriously. You want Jerry in your corner and I’m so thankful to have found him.
