I was so blessed when Andrew Shaffer took my case and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone as I have and always will! I was physically in horrific pain and emotionally exhausted then to be denied twice by social security, I felt hopeless with not knowing who to turn to or who to trust to help me. I am very thankful that a good friend of my family referred me to Andrew Shaffer and even though he was in Cupertino and I live in Sacramento, he still met with me. Upon explaining my complicated case to him, I could see that he genuinely cared. He took my case with knowing he would need to drive all the way to Sacramento (over 2 1/2 hours) for the hearing, in which he did and of course he WON my case! He is a very honest, knowledgeable and professional person. He will always give honest opinions, he does not sugar coat things or make promises that he can not be sure of. I always received an immediate response to my phone calls or emails. I had even emailed him about another situation even after he won my case and I still received an immediate response from him. When I recommend him to others, I always let them know how very knowledgeable he is and he takes the stress off of you with you feeling confident and worry free because he takes care of everything right away, as if you were his only client but you will NEVER feel like a simple client to him!!!

I knew Mr. Shaffer for two years, he is a wonderful person and a terrific attorney. He always answer my calls and respond to my emails immediately. He is also so patient and smart. Without his deft skill, warm style and experienced perspective, I couldn't won my work compensation claim.
Thank you Mr. Shaffer for sharing your gifts with me during the most difficult time in our relationship. You are a hero.

After a serious injury on the job I had many questions about what my future held. I had my employer's people telling me one thing, their insurance company telling me to trust them and coworkers telling me yet another thing.
I ask a paralegal who I know the name of the firm they used for worker's compensation cases and she said without a doubt, attorney Andrew Shaffer. I asked an attorney who I had dealt with in the past who he would recommend for a worker's compensation case and he said attorney Andrew Shaffer. It was a done deal for me at this point. I contacted the law office of Andrew Shaffer in Sunnyvale and found an available, caring attorney.
I had to contact him at first by email and phone, yet he was prompt in getting back to me. When I was able to meet him in person, I found him to be well versed in worker's comp matters and caring. He immediately pointed out an error in the insurance company's correspondence with me. There is no substitute for an expert.
Would I recommend attorney Shaffer? Absolutely! I actually feel fortunate to have him help me in my time of extreme need. My experience with attorney Shaffer in a time of need exceeded my expectations.
Upon a client's retention of attorney Shaffer, I have no problem allowing Mr. Shaffer to release my contact information. This is something I have never done in the past, yet this is how strongly I feel about attorney Shaffer.
Warmest regards in your time of need. I've been there.
Brett Borah, Workers compensation Attorney
I endorse this lawyer. Having worked with Mr. Shaffer for over 15 years, I can honestly say he is one of the most caring attorneys in his field. He is knowledgeable and a tireless worker for the rights of the injured. If I had a work injury, he would be the first person I would turn to for help. You really can't do any better.
