Divorce cases are first and foremost about the lives of the people involved. Divorce means permanent changes for both spouses and children, which leaves many important issues to address. At Shaffer & Associates, our San Diego divorce lawyers understand that the outcome of your divorce will affect the quality of the rest of your family’s lives. We focus on assisting people who find themselves facing these difficult decisions regarding their home life, property, and parenthood. We are committed to helping our clients through these challenges with compassionate yet uncompromising representation.
Shaffer & Associates has helped hundreds of people dissolve their marriages. We have years of experience confidently handling all types of divorce, from straightforward uncomplicated divorces with no children and little property to complex dissolution cases involving significant assets and contested child custody issues. We provide all of our clients with a realistic perspective of their unique situation and the potential legal outcomes, which allows them to make informed decisions throughout the process. We work diligently to achieve our clients’ goals in a professional, ethical manner.
Our family law attorneys begin by sitting down with you and listening to your individual concerns and needs. We will make sure you fully understand how each decision you make impacts your family now, and in the future. All decisions made in a dissolution or separation proceeding should be made only after you are fully informed of all the potential consequences. Our goal is to ensure that you understand the process and make decisions that will benefit you. We believe that mediation and negotiated settlements are almost always the better alternative to courtroom litigation. In the event that litigation is necessary, we will fight aggressively, without hesitation, to protect your rights.
