There is an important difference between plaintiff attorneys, who represent the person who has been hurt, and defense lawyers or general litigation firms, who defend wrongdoers who have violated standards of care in injuring others, and their insurance companies.
Unlike many firms, as a matter of philosophy we do not represent insurance companies. We accept only plaintiff cases. We side with people and small businesses 100 percent of the time.
Our firm is committed to keeping families safe by advocating for:
Founded in 1985, Steven H. Schafer & Associates concentrates in serious personal liability cases.
Our firm is AV-Rated® by Martindale Hubbell® the highest rating for legal ability and ethics available by that national lawyers’ directory.
Mr. Schafer has been chosen by his peers for inclusion in Woodward/White’s Best Lawyers in America®. He has also been named a Super Lawyer by Boston Magazine. Most of our clients actually come to us based upon referrals from other attorneys who are familiar with our work.
Our practice has remained small by design, because we believe that every client deserves our full attention and commitment.
For that reason, we limit the number of cases we handle at any one time. If we take your case, you won't be shuffled off to a junior person. You'll get the full attention of our team, and Steven Schafer will personally direct your case.
We do not look for quick settlements, but for fair and adequate resolutions to our clients’ cases. As a matter of practice, we do not entertain settlement until we know the pertinent facts that establish the other side’s responsibility for your accident or injuries, and the full extent of your injuries, economic loss, and future needs.
