4.5 stars 7 totalReview David Schaffer
Posted by Sahil
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!!!

David is your man if you need someone who knows the law and keeps cool under pressure. He represented me against my ex wife and got my support reduced by 1400 dollars a month. I recommend him highly.

David is the shield between your ex and your child(ren). When my mom and I met David, we were impressed. He takes the time to evaluate every case and will prepare you for successful outcomes. He will keep your fears away and calm you down in every situation. He is not an attorney that will have sympathy for the opposing party and that is very hard to find. If you don't hire David for your custody/order of protection/visitation matter you will make a big mistake. He is very personable and I am proud I hired him. He stands out, and is extremely confident in court and he is all you need . David shows the utmost respect, reliability, and trustworthiness and he won't give you an unrealistic outcome. He is outstanding and well respected by the judges & has a track record of success. Thank you David for all of your hard work!

Before Mr. Schaffer took on my case he made it quiet clear that I had to be upfront and honest with him and took the time to go through the whole history of my situation. If you are looking for a straight talking Lawyer then you have found one. Mr. Schaffer never makes any empty promises or gives false hope. He is thorough regarding facts and keeps you informed of the process every step of the way. He always took the time to address my questions and concerns and always replied to my calls and emails. Given the complexity of my case which was already in its fourth year and involved two countries I can highly recommend Mr. Schaffer as extremely competent and knowledgeable in his field. He aims for positive results and strives for justice and fairness. If you are unjustly separated from your child and you are looking for an Attorney who is capable of righting a wrong then Mr. Schaffer should be your first stop. International Child Custody cases are not for the faint hearted. Mr. Schaffer excels in this area and gives hope where hope may have otherwise been lost. Personally I feel that I have a lot to be thankful for regarding the work Mr. Shaffer has done for me and my family. I would recommend Mr. Shaffer to any Parent who needs a Professional who will work in partnership with you, who really listens, who will treat you with respect and dignity, who will work endlessly and tirelessly and who will ensure what needs to be done will get done.

I hired Mr. Schaffer after firing my first lawyer. My only regret was not hiring Mr. Schaffer in the first place. My divorce had been dragging on for a year already. My ex is a bully and my first lawyer was clearly intimidated by him. Not Mr. Schaffer.
It is obvious that David cared about my case. He made sure I understood what was going on every step of the way. My first lawyer was just the opposite and made me feel like a number.
It is clear that Mr. Schaffer enjoys what he does and knows what he is doing.
I got more than half the assets as well as long term alimony.
I would highly recommend David for anyone going through a divorce, especially if they are not happy with their current lawyer. I learned the hard way it is better to start with quality representation than a cheap lawyer.
