I was referred to Nancy by a friend whose former spouse was actually represented by Nancy in their divorce. And I couldn't be more thankful!
Nancy helped me tremendously during my divorce and custody battle. First of all, Nancy was one of the first professionals who believed me about my former spouse's emotional and verbal abuse. Secondly, she is highly knowledgeable about children with special needs labels (including ADHD, Autism, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder). Thirdly, she has a great deal of experience with the intricacies of military divorces and equitable pension disbursement (she is an expert in the Navy especially).
Finally, and most importantly for me, Nancy has a deep reservoir of compassion, patience, and commitment. Because of the abusive nature of my former spouse, he fought almost every request I made and our divorce and custody process took 3 years and ended with a full trial. Nancy stuck with me and fought for me.
Thank you Nancy for helping me protect myself and my son. Thank you for helping us keep the economic and legal protections we needed to start a new life. I will be forever grateful.
I give Nancy Chausow Shafer my greatest endorsement and recommendation!

Nancy gets the job done and cares for the well being of her client! Not your typical attorney! Nancy made me feel safe, valued and respected during an extremely difficult time in my life. Nancy is a smart, hard working and supportive person you want on your side!

We chose the collaborative divorce process. For various reasons, the process took longer and was more expensive than anticipated. However, the outcome was satisfactory to both parties and as yet, does not require revision.
I appreciated the time and effort that Ms. Shafer put into the case. Although she was my attorney, she strove for the best settlement, given the specifics and circumstances, which I appreciated. She was always available for a quick phone consultation or advice on a particular part of the law. Finally (and perhaps most important) was that she ensured that the settlement would be acceptable to the judge.
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
Ms Chausow Shafer is a force to be reckoned with. She has an uncanny grasp on the law- I have seen judges call her to the bench to advise on statute. She works hard for her clients and her wheels are always turning to uncover innovative and successful strategy for each case.
