Willingness to help any way he can.
I contacted Mr Schnipper and found that his practice was not within the jurisdiction that was relevant to my issue. That didn't stop him from going the extra mile to access information that could lead me to someone relevant. I was so impressed with this man's humanity and generosity of spirit. He must sleep very well at night for the goodness that he does for his fellow man. He restores my faith in humanity and the law profession. I wish him the best and would recommend him to anybody who might need his services. Thank you!

Client
My criminal situation occurred over the Christmas Holiday and David aggressively worked to get me bailed from holding during this time. In so doing, David sacrificed his own holiday time which I will never forget. Further, David was able to ultimately get my charges dismissed completely. David's aggressive willingness to work and his deep knowledge of the law created a great outcome that allowed me to put this terrible incident behind me. From my own personal experience, I can confidently recommend David's services to anyone in need of a skilled and aggressive defense attorney.

Very talented attorney, and very friendly
Upon meeting David due to unfortunate circumstances initiated by a hostile ex-girlfriend, he immediately put my mind at ease, allowing me to concentrate on the parts of my life that matter as opposed to dealing with hysterical people's false accusations. David's motto of 'bad things happen to good people' was absolutly the case in my circumstances, and he helped me understand how and why these circumstances arose, and how best to combat them. After engaging and payment of appropriate fees, David took up his work diligently and without delay. He provided appropriate updates, offered time on the phone to discuss, and was there with me every step of the way. After preparations for our hearing were concluded and we were comfortable with our strategy, David presented our position in very clear, concise, and accurate terms that I think immediately set us up for success. His opening arguments alone were so gold that I would have still been very satisfied with David's representation even if we lost. In fact, I've already passed along his name to a couple of friends to ensure that they have someone on speed dial should they need legal assistance, even for sufficiently scary situations like mine. Thank you, David, thank you for believing me and helping me out of this difficult situation.

Great Find
He was very insightful, & thorough covering the details of my case. I was in total distress when we met, but by the time I left my mind was at ease. He kept in touch with me through out the whole process. Most times I didn't even have to show up for court! He would update me weekly or biweekly on the status of my case.

Speeding ticket Reduction
My teenage son was caught speeding on his way to work in Georgia. Because of his speed, the officer pretty much threw the book at him...High fine, super speeder, etc. We were also concerned his insurance premiums would skyrocket or worse, be dropped all together. We contacted David with Schnipper Law, PC to assist us. He was able to have the super speeder and points from his license completely dropped. He made the process very simple and saved us time by not having to appear in court. This saved us considerably in long run. David, is friendly, easy to work with, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend David and Schnipper Law, PC.

David Schnipper 5 star review
Mr.Schnipper was very professional, understanding, and responded promptly to all of my questions. He kept us informed with explanations of possible outcomes leaving us confident knowing he was handling my sons case. Davids hard work got us the best results, and he did much of it without having to involve my son. I am truly grateful to have hired him when I did and would give him the highest recommendation to anyone in need of a good and aggressive lawyer.

David the go-getter
I recenty had the pleasure of hiring David as my attorney and I could not be happier with the outcome. David is in the results business.

Sometimes life truly gives you lemons. Thank goodness I had David Schnipper in my corner to come to my aid. His knowledge of "the system" and persistence to deliver the best outcome possible made all the difference.If I ever need a tough advocate in my corner again, I'll know who to call.

Professional, patient and absolutely outstanding
David not only understood my case and its implications but went the extra mile. I ended up in a bad jam where I desperately wanted to be back with my family in Canada. He went out of his way to not only get it to where I didn’t get a conviction but was able to have it where the court allowed me leave the country and be back home with my loved ones. David has the empathy to understand the totality of the situation. He was quick in understanding my case, put together a winning strategy and most notably he won! I highly recommend this lawyer. He’s a bulldog in the courtroom and is very well respected. Thank you David Schnipper!

Civil & Familial Genius!
David is incredible! I have been drug through the mud by estranged family members for nearly 20 years, and finally needed David's services for a very minor matter. David was able to reveal certain unique to me familial estrangement circumstances that the Judge would have never heard had I not hired David. My case is not a criminal, but civil matter which resulted in my ultimate favor. David is someone you can trust. He will certainly be pinned to the top of my contact list for future legal matters I will inevitably come across. Choose David!
