Caring and knowledgeable
Tasha and her staff have been wonderful to work with. Tasha has always listened to my concerns, answered all my questions, and gave suggestions on how to proceed in the future. She carefully explained what to expect with the process of my case. My mind was quickly put at ease with the knowledge that everything was in very capable hands. She is confident without being arrogant, compassionate and genuinely caring. Her nature is comforting.

Virginia Riggs is a SUPERSTAR!
As a dad, who has lived 1000 miles away from my son, for most of the last 8 years, a loose legal opinion was no longer sufficient in dealing with his increasingly difficult mom. Realizing at 10, this boy was going to need his dad more and more as he developed into manhood, I stood at a turning point and had to take action. I randomly found Schaffner Family Law on Google, called and had a consultation with Virginia Riggs. I immediately knew I struck gold! Having had shoddy representation in the past, Virginia inspired confidence in her, my case and frankly in myself! She reinforced my rights as an equal in parenting rights. My rights as a father! A position I had totally lost sight of, surrendered as a co-parent, I had increasingly become helpless to negotiate with personally with my son’s mother. Together we developed a plan and pursued it. Virginia kept me up to date every step of the way, through email, text and phone. She negotiated and stood up to a very strong attitude and position in the person of my son’s mother’s attorney. She went toe to toe and never backed down, in the face of opposition that I have to imagine most would have folded. Virginia is tough. But, she’s also human and a wonderful woman, not to mention totally dedicated to this client! In the end, I walked away with far more than I started with and a bright future to really continue to build the father, son relationship my son deserves! “Thank you” are not enough words to express the gratitude I have for Virginia Riggs. Blessing is the only way I can describe being lead to Schaffner Family Law. In the future, if I face any obstacles in my parenting rights, I will obviously know right where to go and recommend the same for anyone with family Law needs! In deepest gratitude, Andrew

Separation of pension funds
Tasha and crew guided me through (2) court cases and (2) appeal cases involving fair separation of (2) retirement pensions. Winning both cases, her diligence, intelligence, and just knowing the established law showed the courts what was fair and just. I would have been lost without her.
