Honest, hardworking, knowledgeable man of integrity and character
Mark and his team helped us through a very difficult time, was always on top of our case (most of the time taking care of paperwork, phone calls, etc. the same day!), always responded to any questions, concerns, explained (multiple times) things we didn't understand and would repeatedly ask, calmed our fears, and displayed the utmost respect and integrity at all times. Regardless of the outcome, we felt we were in the best hands possible, and his expertise and hard work resulted in the best possible results we could hope for. Thank you, Mark, for giving us our life back, you're such a blessing!

Highly recommend!
Mark and his team are tremendous! They took care of my situation with solid professionalism and experience.. I even contacted Mark seven years later on a Sunday afternoon about some paperwork and by the following Monday he had everything I needed and send it over by 10 AM. I highly recommend mark and his team!

Always has your best interest at heart
Mark Shafer and Associates take great pride in their ability to provide unique and tailored legal services to each of their clients. I was really at a loss on how to proceed after my car accident and I did not know what steps to take as this was my first major car accident. Mark Shafer and Associates had benn recommended to me and I'm so luck they were. They are definitely confident and extremely knowledgeable and have handled many cases like mine. They are easy to get in contact with and I get updates whenever I need them by way of phone or email. They made what could have been a bad experience for me a good one. They even discussed issues like handling debt or collectors while I heal if it's needed. In addition Mark Shafer and Associates have been really nice and open with me on what was going on during my case. I would definitely recommend this firm to those who need it in the future.

Compassionate, Genuine, Driven
I have had a wild ride over the last two years, prior to this time I never imagined I would need an attorney, but things happen. Here is the abridged version of my story and how the Law office of Shafer and associates helped me out. Roughly two years ago my wife and I decided to go our separate ways, following our separation I moved into an apartment. After living in the apartment for some time I found black mold around the water heater along with small mushrooms growing in the moist wood.. I was absolutely disgusted! Management initially sent someone out to fixe the water heater and get rid of the mold and mushrooms; but the mold would soon return. At this point I decided it was time to break the lease! My roommate already had existing respiratory issues and I would end up with a head ache within a half hour of coming home. This place was now hazardous to our health. But how could I break the lease without paying thousands of dollars? Who could I call? At this point I contacted The Law Offices of Shafer and Associates. They introduced me to the concept of Constructive eviction. Their handy work saved me thousands of dollars on the remaining lease. After I moved out of the Toxic apartment I needed to begin my divorce paperwork. Once again I called upon the Law Offices of Shafer and Associates. They have made the process very straight forward and easy to understand. Since my wife and I separated we let our Condo go. Thank goodness the property is now off our hands but the HOA is claiming we owe them backed dues. Once again I called upon the Law Offices of Shafer and Associates. The settlement process has gone well and is nearing a favorable conclusion. I have also worked with the Office of Shafer and associates to have erroneous items removed from my credit report. Over the last year I have also recommended The Law Office of Shafer and Associates to several friends, all have been satisfied by the service they received.

Fully recommend Mark Schafer
Incredibly easy to work with and really helpful. He was able to take care of everything with my case and obtain a favorable outcome. Very professional and friendly.
Posted by Rasheed | February 8, 2013
Very satisfied!
Mr. Shafer was recommended to me through a mutual friend. I was served with an unlawful detainer that gave me five days to respond and I was on day five. I was instructed to come in asap to handle the matter. I came in with all my evidence that I shouldn't have been served with this unlawful detainer. Mr. Shafer had the lawsuit dismissed with in 24hrs and now I can move forward with my life.
