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.
