“Sarah Schaffer is the best.

So too, are her staff. I had the opportunity to review my situation in 2017 by phone. No pressure to hire them. They were genuinely interested in me, my circumstances, and helping me understand what to expect. More a teaching moment for me and strategy session – not a sales session. I have returned to say “Thank You.” Thank you for good legal counsel. Thank you for asking me to ask myself “is this what I want?” It wasn’t. I never hired Sarah, but my marriage is back on course and a “divorce lawyer” was helpful for that rebirth. Bless you.”

“Your resume speaks for itself and I consider you a valuable member of the attorney community. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs your services. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer!”

“Without Sarah Schaffer and her amazing team, my son and I would not be where we are today.

Sarah has always treated us with the utmost professionalism and respect as clients. Her concern and pursuit of our safety, well being and future success has helped me to feel confident about the outcomes and has given me more freedom to be able to focus on my tasks at hand, my job and most importantly, being a mother. I cannot thank the Schaffer Team enough for everything they have done. We are so blessed to have Sarah in our corner!”

“Sarah is intelligent and driven when working for her clients.

She has solid knowledge of family law and drives for the end goal of resolving the conflict instead of prolonging it just to bill more.”

She is diligent, hard working, and very straight forward. I give her my highest recommendation.”

“I have worked with Sarah on several projects and I have found her to be very organized and thorough. She takes her work seriously and is always upbeat and positive. I know she will bring that same work ethic in working with her clients.”

Jeremy Francis ReviewJeremy Francis


“Hired this attorney and was exceedingly pleased with her patience and ability to communicate both with the opposition and myself. Her staff was both friendly and efficient.”

JohnJohn


“Amazing Attorney!

I wanted to take a moment and thank Ms. Schaffer for all that she did for me. She made a very difficult time so much easier. I was in a highly contentious, high income divorce. While Sarah was very level headed and down to business, she took great care of me. We ended up using mediation. Sarah was so professional and it worked out really well. She is kind and caring but she has that military background, so she will absolutely not be intimidated by opposing counsel. Thank you for everything you have done and I have/would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering divorce.”

Colleen ReviewerColleen


“Supportive and a Warrior.

Extremely knowledgeable about financial support when it comes to military retirement and bonus money. Secure in standing up to former military men who are used to running the show and getting their way. Thick skinned.”

Nina ReviewerNina
