“I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Sarah Schaffer and her firm.

My first priority was to find a mediation friendly lawyer that could be supportive of that process. Sarah listened, understood my needs, showed genuine care for my future and state of mind during a difficult time in life. She had good working relationships with the mediator and opposing counsel, working collaboratively and professionally to advance the process with my needs as her priority and was always well prepared. My second priority was to have a lawyer that could pivot from mediation to a strong litigator if needed. When the mediation process seemed to stall out and we began discussing a court strategy I had complete confidence in her. She was strategic, never hesitated to challenge an out of line demand or comment, and was always prepared to effectively support her stance. Luckily, she was able to get mediation back on track and see it through to a successful outcome. Thank you Sarah and team, your help and guidance was much appreciated.”

Christopher Trainor

“Sarah is a consummate professional and one of the most patient, meticulous, and thorough attorneys I have ever dealt with. I recommend Sarah without hesitation to anyone interested in superior results.”

Richard G., Rancho Bernardo

“Sarah provided carefully researched legal advice and shows a pragmatic approach to problem solving. She is also a pleasure to work with.”

J.F., USMC, Camp Pendleton

“Ms. Schaffer has delivered everything she promised and more for me and my 3 children. She has been the expert that I needed and stayed within my budget. I would recommend her to anyone with a family law issue.”

Tonya L., Solana Beach

“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.”

“Leslie is an effective and knowledgeable attorney. Any person would be in good hands with her as their attorney.”

Jeffrey L., Oceanside, CA

“Jennifer was always ready to work and had a lot of ideas on how we could get through our situation. She was always pleasant and knowledgeable. Helped our divorce go through smoothly.”

Wes, San Diego

“I am amazed by Jennifer’s ability to listen carefully, encourage clients to speak in a friendly manner, and find solutions that are satisfactory to everyone quickly. She is efficient and thoughtful. I also observed Jennifer research and problem-solve on a high-stakes emotionally volatile family law case. She is a wonderful advocate.”

Anna Howard, Esq., Carlsbad, CA

“I hired Jennifer Lee as my attorney to handle my divorce, and what a wise choice that was! Jennifer was knowledgeable, thorough, and made the whole process a pleasure. Yes, a pleasure! We laughed often, got through any possible tough spots in fairness, and worked through everything in record time. Jennifer would give us things to work on/through on our own before the next appointment, and we did without a problem due to her excellent guidance. Before deciding to go with Jennifer, I interviewed seven other attorneys, and all had different approaches, and I wanted to find the best match for me. Jennifer Lee = awesome choice! While I hope to never need to hire an attorney for a divorce ever in my lifetime again, if I did, or anyone I know ever needed someone, I would recommend Jennifer Lee whole heartedly. The whole staff too was easy to work with, truly professional. If you need someone to get you through a divorce, and you want to do it as fair, and as a responsible, level headed adult as possible, do yourself a favor and hire Jennifer Lee to do it. She was truly a gift to this whole process. Thank you Jennifer. I had high expectations, and you far exceeded every expectation and then some.”

Shari, San Diego

“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!”

Michael Shemtoub, Attorney

“Sarah is an outstanding family law attorney.

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

Joseph Higuera, Attorney

“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

“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!”

Christina Burdick

“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.”


“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.”


“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.”

Eric Basu

“Amazing Attorney!

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.”


“Ms. Lee is a fantastic attorney, with whom I have worked on many cases. She is a tenacious advocate for her clients. Her mediation and settlement skills are second to none, and everyone who works with her, whether clients or other professionals are always extremely complimentary.”

Meredith Lewis, Esq., Solana Beach, CA
