Everything You Need to Know About Us at Shaffer Family Law
At Shaffer Family Law, our entire practice is truly dedicated to protecting what matters most; your children, your assets, and your property. We are solely dedicated to family law, including divorce, child custody and parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance/alimony, and property division. Because we are dedicated to only family law, we remain committed to being the best family law attorneys in the valley.
Our family law attorneys have in common a desire to serve individuals and families who are going through a difficult, even devastating, time in their lives. We understand that for our clients, their family law matter is not just a legal case: it affects them emotionally and financially as well, extending into every aspect of their lives. A divorce or other family law situation creates a feeling of vulnerability and makes life seem out of control. We protect our clients when they feel unable to protect themselves, and place control of their lives back in their hands.
We have successfully resolved hundreds of family law matters, but we know that no two cases are ever the same. For most of our clients, their case is one of the most significant events of their lives and we treat it with the same importance that they do.
We begin by listening to what is important to you in your unique situation, because your needs and goals set the tone for the entire case. Only when we understand where you stand, and what a successful outcome would look like to you, we apply our detailed knowledge of Arizona family law to obtain the best results for you. We explain the law to you as it applies to your case, describing the various options available and the likely outcomes of each. Knowledge is power, and we deliver that knowledge in a straightforward yet sensitive way. We will always guide you throughout the process, advising you about the pros and cons of various strategies and what we believe is best.
Just as you wouldn't hire a carpenter whose only tool is a hammer, you shouldn't hire an attorney who only approaches cases in one way. Because we're committed to doing what is best for each client, we cultivate proficiency in a variety of dispute resolution options. Most Arizona divorce and family law cases end in settlement, not in trial. With that in mind, we are flexible, creative negotiators, willing to explore a variety of options to arrive at a resolution that is successful not only for our client, but for the family. In situations where parties want to work out their own solution, but need support to do so, we are equipped to act as mediators. We make these options available to our clients because we know that negotiated settlements are often less expensive and more satisfying to the parties than orders imposed by a judge.
Sometimes, however, it is simply not possible to arrive at a settlement that is in our client's best interests. When that happens, litigation is the only solution. At Shaffer Family Law, we are strong, experienced litigators, meticulously prepared to advocate as aggressively as necessary on our clients' behalf.
