The Schachter Law Firm

Schachter and firm

Breaking up is hard to do. Divorce, child custody, child support – these are not easy. David Schachter can help. He’ll negotiate these tough experiences with you and see you through to the other side.

Specializing in divorce and family law, The Schachter Law Firm, LLC strives to steer clients through trying times while offering judicious advice along the way. For Attorney David Schachter, being genuine and accessible is of the utmost priority.

“Every day I have an opportunity to help people get through one of the most difficult experiences of their life,” said Schachter. “I’m grateful to be of service during the challenging transition of divorce.”

The trust Schachter has fostered in his past and present clients has helped the firm grow exponentially since its founding in 2013. Furthermore, the empathy and wisdom provided through the firm’s services has led The Schachter Law Firm to be voted one of Savannah’s best divorce law firms year after year.

“I found David to be knowledgeable, efficient, and quick to respond with great attention to detail,” wrote one client. “His staff was professional, understanding and always accommodating to our schedule. Trust David’s judgment and listen to his advice.”

Schachter affirms that he is no miracle worker, and while pleasing both parties is a prime concern, neither person is going to get everything they want. But at The Schachter Law Firm, LLC you are guaranteed to receive excellent service and outstanding representation. Compassion will be on your side.

 

The Schachter Law Firm is known for its accessibility and responsiveness, the team provides wise counsel in and out of court

 

At Case Western Reserve Law School, David Schachter specialized in family law and studied under well-established family lawyer Andrew Zashin. Upon graduation, however, Zashin urged him not to go into family practice, stating that Schachter would “have his heart broken time and time again.”

For two years following his graduation, Schachter heeded his mentor’s advice and mostly handled real estate cases, contract disputes, and commercial law. But that time away from family law only reaffirmed his desire to pursue it.

“I really like helping people and having opportunities to make a difference in people’s lives,” said Schachter. “And for me, practicing family law is the best way to do that professionally.”

But the personal qualities needed to succeed in his endeavor of opening a successful firm were not things he learned from a textbook. Schachter’s dedication, work ethic, and perspective were instilled in him by past family hardships. All 4 of his grandparents are survivors of the Holocaust, 3 of which were imprisoned at the infamous concentration camp, Auschwitz. Their ability to overcome such adversity is a quality he strongly admires and aspired to put forth in himself.

In 2010, Schachter and his wife, Julia, a Savannah native, returned to the Hostess City, where Schachter had previously practiced. Upon his return, he began to work exclusively in family law which has remained his focus ever since. A divorce is a compromise, and Schachter’s familiarity with both agreements and negotiations were advantageous in building his trusting clientele and upstanding reputation.

In 2013, The Schachter Law Firm, LLC was born and his reputation as an efficient, genuine, and courteous attorney continues to grow.
