I was recommended Mr. Bryan Schempf for hire for my divorce lawyer through a friend who had hired Mr. Schempf himself. I could not have been happier with how professional and responsive he was for me. It was straight to business, and it was carried out as quickly and painlessly as possible. I am very satisfied, and just recommended Mr. Schempf to a friend of mine as well.

I hired Bryan to help me get through a divorce with custody agreement. Not only was he extremely professional, but I have never worked with anyone more responsive. It didn't matter the day of the week or the time, Bryan had answers for me quickly. He helped guide me in what felt like very emotional decisions in a very logical way. In addition, and probably most importantly, he has a "sixth sense" in terms of sniffing out things that should be investigated further. There were some items in my case that didn't sit well with him, and after doing some digging on his part, he came up with strong information I would have never thought to look for. I would strongly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer, and have already given his name to several others in the area.

In the last two years Mr. Bryan H. Schempf helped me with my divorce and child custody issues. When I realized that divorce cannot be avoided I interviewed three lawyers. I chose Mr. Schempf, and, from the opening salvo to final decree, I never regretted my choice. Mr. Schempf turned out to be very knowledgeable, highly punctual and amazingly efficient.
I always received prompt replies to my questions from Mr. Schempf and his assistant, Pam Denney. At every step of the process, Mr. Schempf showed me different options and explained their pros and cons.
Mr. Schempf was a great listener, and he showed attention to every tiny detail of my story. When he learned the details, he always knew the next step. In some instances, Mr. Schempf had more than one solution, and he explained me possible outcomes for each of them. Moreover, he never pushed me to make a choice. At every turn I felt that the decision was mine.
I am very much satisfied with both the way that Mr. Schempf arranged my divorce and the outcome of my divorce process. I highly recommend Mr. Shempf as one of the best family law attorneys in Yorktown area.
