Fast friendly and courteous service. Excellent fees. My wife and I have dealt with Gerry Schaffer for over 30 years! (Yes he is that old, but he makes it look easy).
Our latest legal needs were selling our property and buying our retirement home on Lake Huron. Gerry did not handle our legal needs. We are now dealing with his Son Zack Schaffer. The sale went so smooth we didn't even know we were homeless!! ???? After a week I called the real estate agent for the purchase to inquire if there were any complaints or difficulties. None. Flawless.
Our purchase was not due to close until 2 weeks after our sale. During the time from our agreement to purchase until close we made 6 amendments. We made sure that all communications and amendments either went through Zack or were forwarded to him. Zack also made sure of this in writing to to the vendor. Efficient and vigilante.
On the day of our closing Nov. 6, 2019, we had a container del. scheduled, a shipment from Bad Boy, (I recommend them as well), a water purification tech., (ARC Water in Goderich), and Bell. It was a precarious logistical undertaking 100% dependent upon my lawyer closing the transaction in the early a.m. of Nov. 6.
Needless to say I was anxiety personified. Zach sat across from me and said, don't you worry, if I have to I will come in and do the banking myself at 9:00 a.m. to close that deal. I said if he did that I would buy him pizza.
Well I hope Zack, Gerry and their staff are enjoying their pizza lunch. They deserve it.
I did not intend to go on at length. I did so after reading some other negative reviews. Let the Lawyers do their job. Don't hire them and start doing "some of the work yourself." It does not help them or you. As your Dad would say, "Don't be a back seat driver". Same applies here, dont hire a law firm and then be a "Philadelphia lawyer ".
