Attorney Schefter handled all aspects of my case. There was not one phone call that I made with a question that went unanswered PERSONALLY; not one. This was not the case with other lawyers I had worked with.
Rather than fast-tracking me into the ARD program and moving on to the next client, he analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of my case. While preparing for trial, he negotiated with the prosecutor and police, enabling me to plead guilty to a lesser charge, not involving DUI, thereby avoiding the need to go to trial altogether.
He covered all the bases and is familiar with all officials who may have an impact on your case. Having an attorney who is able to do that is extremely reassuring.
He is very highly recommended.

...and the representation he provided in my recent DUI case.
There are many attorney’s from which you can choose, but I don’t believe you will find another who will give you the same sense of comfort that you will find in Bobby.
My case began as a dui checkpoint arrest but we faced some unforeseen hurdles and it quickly became very scary for me.
Knowing that I could trust and believe in Attorney Schefter made the days leading up to my sentencing much more tolerable. Each time I found myself over analyzing, stressing over the "what if's" or feeling like I was going to “snap” it was resolved by a phone call to Bobby....his calm demeanor certainly had a way of settling me in those anxious times!!
Attorney Schefter is extremely knowledgeable, respectable, full of integrity, thorough and, above all, he is compassionate – he knew it was the worst time of my life; he never left me to wonder and he understood my tears.

Robert is an outstanding attorney. He is professional and doesn't look/treat at you as a number and more importantly he talks to you in a language that the normal person can relate to and understand. After talking to him the first time, I felt a whole lot better about my situation. Hes a good guy, no doubt about it.
Penny Ayers, Family Attorney
Having known Robert and worked with him for many years, I can attest that he is one of the best attorneys I know. He offers years of experience, both as a former prosecutor, former in house counsel for a local construction company, and as an attorney who regularly appears before the York County courts. He offers excellent advice, and I trust his counsel implicitly.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
After working with Mr. Schefter on a criminal matter, I know his competence in defending criminal and traffic charges. I don't hesitate to give his name as a referral for friends and family who need a lawyer in his area.
