Joshua Schiffer made his career on Ben Franklin’s adage regarding “Doing Well by Doing Good.”  Raised in Cobb County by Drs. Dan and Gail Schiffer and attending The Walker School put Josh (“Mr. Schiffer is my Dad, I’m just Josh) on an path to New England where he graduated from Clark University with a degree in International Relations.    

After graduating from Georgia State University's College of Law in 2002, Josh returned home to Cobb County where he clerked for a Superior Court Judge.  After being exposed to the finest trial lawyers in Atlanta, Josh cut his teeth by representing anyone and everyone as a senior indigent defense trial attorney in Fulton County.  In this position Josh trained dozens of lawyers on advanced trial techniques, organized the operation of the State All Purpose Courts, was lead counsel in thousands of hearings, trials, pleas and other court actions….. and fought with Doug Chanco. Now his Partner.

In 2007 Josh graduatd from the prestigious Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College in Duboise, WY. Influenced by the people he met and what he learned at “The Ranch,” Josh quit working for the State, started a lawfirm, quit drinking, had a kid, expanded his practice, won the biggest victories of his career, spoke and taught at more events, became dedicated to representing ONLY INDIVIDUALS and has never stopped in his search for personal justice. 

The Schiffer Firm, LLC merged into ChancoSchiffer PC in 2010 and most recently   transformed into Chanco Schifffer Olson with the addtion of his Partners Doug Chanco and David Olson.  Doug Chanco formerly prosecutred criminals, as well as defended them, and now has a strong focus on representing the victims of crime and negligence as a plaintiff's personal injury attorney.  David Olson also prosecuted criminals before he was recruited to protect insurace companies at a legacy Atlanta law firm.  He now exlcusivley practices Plaintiff's Personal injury with a strong focus on premesis liability, negligent security, and other harms to the inidvidual.  

Josh now concentrates his practice on issues of Domestic Violence, Personal Injury and Victims Rights while also remaining focused on substance abuse and addiciton cases.  This allows him to take on a wide variety of personal issues such as the 2nd amendment, crime victim’s compensation, premises liability, wrongful accusations, abuses of the legal process/system, children’s issues as well as any kind of violent crime.
