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.

I interviewed a couple attorneys to handle my divorce and I knew right away Mr. Schempf was the person I was meant to have represent me. From our initial meeting I noticed a different set of listening skills that the other lawyers did not possess. Pending divorce can be a low point in life, and I was instantly relieved of much of the stress knowing that I had a fair and competent lawyer taking my case. Mr. Schempf was highly responsive when I had questions, responding immediately at all hours, which always made me feel as though my case was a top priority for him. Along the way he offered sage advice and guidance that helped me stay on top of the negotiations. If you are looking for someone who can represent you with integrity and outstanding results, I highly recommend Mr. Schempf and his support team !

Bryan was recommended to me by another professional in the community who is also a friend. She was aware of some of the problems I'd had in coming to an acceptable divorce settlement without involving some areas of marital property I had legal claim to. Bryan has wonderful listening skills and heard me out as to the reasons I wanted to take the path I did. While he presented all the options for me to consider, he knew that I had done extensive reading on my own, and let me be in control of the final outcome. My custom-tailored divorce was handled as professionally as I could have ever wished. I also saw him for advice on a property I am buying, and I am anxious to see him again to handle my estate plan.
