David represented me in a family law matter. This guy is a sweetheart to his clients but a beast to the opposing party. As far as fees, he is willing to work with you. The guy below reviewing David must have been a real pain in his rear because when I told David my funds were getting low, he offered something no other family law attorney would offer and I am not going to speak of it on here. additionally David was there for me 7 days a week and at odd hours. I wish David the best, even though he won't have lunch with me. I enjoyed his company but I get attached to good people. He's a busy guy so I can appreciate that. And remember everyone, he prepares for his clients like he is facing the 2'nd best attorney in family law. David being the 1st. Best wishes all,

Not recommended. Mine was a complicated case in which David dropped balls every step of the way. I'm living on a shoestring budget. Unprofessional and unprepared to say the very least.

I hired David Schaffer in August of 2013 in a difficult divorce battle that would stretch out over the next 18 months. After extended research, consultation with other attorneys and reading about some media attention David received after other cases, I decided with great confidence that David would be the right man to fight on behalf of my children and I. My ex-wife had an attorney who wasn't afraid to cross the line of what was not only ethically questionable, but he would also make a point to drag things out, filing motion upon motion in court just to cash in on the award while my ex-wife and I was paying the bills. David will work on behalf of you, he will stand up and argue in court when things are out of control and most importantly, he will keep you and your end result in mind at all times. There are a long list of attorneys who walk around in court with great posture and professional attire, but when they open their mouth in court there is much left to be desired. My wife's attorney was one of them and I am grateful that when David opens his mouth in court, he is the attorney you want to have battling on your behalf. He's vicious, confident, and very knoweldgeable about the law, something he makes clear in court. Particularly when there's a trial or hearing, David shines and will fight hard for you.
On another note, David's entire team of paralegals in the office was nothing but the most wonderful people I had the pleasure of working with during the past 18 months. Katie was incredible and extremely organized, always being able to answer any questions I might have had, making me feel that it wasn't just any other case they were dealing with.
All of that said, I highly recommend David and Schaffer Law Office. He's exactly the type of attorney you want when fighting a difficult divorce battle. Great job David and the rest of your team!!!
