Review Peter Schaeffer

  • Hired and Fired

    1.0 star

    Posted by Patty

    i hired him because he seemed the one I needed for a head injury at work. He set me up with a 'good friend' of his and months of useless appointments with talk therapy. When I was in extreme pain I called the Dr for help. I was told he had not been paid yet and wouldn't see me. Peter never gave me a Dr to see. About a year of his so called service he wanted to settle. I called him crying with extreme pain with pressure in my head, ears, and neck issues and I desperately needed help. After going to the ER I saw him at his office (an hour drive) a few days later, only to hear him belittle my injury and say "I don't believe you. If you don't like it fire me."
    I would never recommend him for a Work Comp case, much less for a head injury.

    Peter Marc Schaeffer’s response: “Good Morning Patricia..... I am so sorry you did not appreciate all that I tried to do for you. When you fired your prior Attorney Mr Cortright, I jumped right in to help you the best I could. When I sent you to Dr. Lino Valdivia who is an exceptional Neuro-Psychologist it was done with the best of intentions for you. If an insurance company does not want to pay a doctor he has the option of discontinuing treatment forcing us to perhaps find another doctor. Because of the legislation over the past several years many doctors are not taking workers compensation injuries. Many times when someone is in horrible pain the only thing we can do is advise they go to Emergency Room so hopefully the insurance Company will do the right thing the next time and authorize treatment. When in your frustration with the system and I suppose me, I couldn't seem to please you and naturally as you chose to do with your prior attorney also, Mr. Cortright you could fire me. I truly did not deserve the hateful and horrible review you posted on Avvo regarding my services. Does attempting to harm me and my family's livelihood make you feel better ?”

    Dr. Peter Schaeffer has proven to be my best choice as a workers’ compensation attorney. I searched around, and I kept coming back to him, and as a result, he has proven his excellence in many important ways. I chose him because I could tell from the very first consultation visit that he is well-spoken, well-informed about California’s Workers Compensation Laws and because of his apparent passion for his clientele’s best interests. My case was finished in only one year and nine months. Within that time, because of Dr. Schaeffer, I received disability benefits and the best medical services that are available in the Coachella Valley for my types of injuries to the spine and shoulders. My case was a particularly difficult one because of my status as an adjunct professor. Dr. Schaeffer didn’t let that get in his way because he knew that California Workers Comp laws apply to everyone who is legally employed by a business or organization. One thing that I truly appreciated about him is that he kept me informed throughout the entire process. If I had questions, all I had to do is email him, and he would answer my questions in a timely fashion. He’s honest, and he follows the law to the dime. I was particularly impressed by his oratory skills in front of the judge during our expedited trials. He was polite, ethical, well-spoken, honest, and yet, he was assertive. His team is equally as impressive as Dr. Schaeffer; they truly represent his compassion and professionalism. Furthermore, underneath all of that professionalism, he’s exceptionally kind and thoughtful of others. If you want a workers’ comp attorney that truly fights for your rights, I highly recommend Dr. Schaeffer; he is without a doubt, the attorney for you. He cares, and he will get you what you are entitled to in a timely fashion.

    Dr. Schaeffer won an outstanding and beyond my expectations settlement for me. He provided professional, friendly, and approachable service throughout the years. He went out of his way to meet with me on several occasions. His staff is knowledgeable and professional. He has a very sharp wit and knows his insurance foes. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this lawyer.

    I hired Peter Schaeffer after a work shoulder injury surgery request was denied. My shoulder surgery was done finally, but this Dr. was done also. I had multiple injuries that this Dr. just didn't want to address. I'm so glad I took the time to do my research and found Mr. Schaeffer's website. Mr. Schaeffer directed me to a physician that continued my care which resulted in spine surgery. Pete always took my calls and answered my questions and emails. If I didn't understand something he took the time to make sure I understood. Mr. Schaeffer fought hard and strong for me to obtain a settlement inorder to go forward and rebuild my life back. You could say Pete Schaeffer was "My Night and Shining Armor". Much gratitude to you Mr. Schaeffer, thank you so very much.

  • The best Attorney I have ever worked with.

    Attorney Schaeffer exceeded my expectations in every way and there is no question who I would call if I needed an attorney in the future. Attorney Schaeffer settled my workman's comp case and I received a nice settlement. I would have received nothing if I had not consulted with Attorney Schaeffer. I would recommend Attorney Schaeffer to all my co-workers, friends and family.
    Thank you, Attorney Schaeffer for taking my case and having my best interest at heart!

    After about 6 months of pain pills for my injured back Dr. Schaeffer took my case in January 2013 . I went through a deposition and by Feb, I had an option to have surgery or a cortisone injection for which I opted for the injection as a first line of treatment. Then later I chose to go for surgery as a last resort. By July I had the surgery which the employee health had been saying they have recommended but the workers' comp insurance was deally darling. After surgery I went through Physiotherapy and I went back to work in Dec 2013. I thank Dr. Schaeffer for getting me the treatment that I needed and a cash settlement.

    After going 8 months without any treatment (other than pain pills) for my injured knee, Dr. Schaeffer took me on as his client in late June. By Aug. 1, I had an appointment with a competent, professional and polite doctor who gave me a cortisone shot that same day. By the last week of August, I was finally able to get the physical therapy my employer's workers comp insurer and the insurer's doctor had been wrangling over for months. (The doctor kept saying the insurer wouldn't approve therapy and the insurer kept saying their own doctor they assigned me to still wasn't sending over the correct paperwork.) Today I thought I was going to have my deposition, but instead I just received a settlement for more than I made in one year of employment. There's a reason Dr. Schaeffer gets such high reviews - the results his clients get speak for themselves.
