this guy is very bad news! he handled my divorce and did nothing but take advantage of the emotional state I was in and encouraged my to take revenge against my husband. he send letter after letter to the opposing council in order to increase his billable hours. little did I know he had a reputation for this and had earned the the Nick name the paper man. he was able to create so much turmoil that he bill me over $35,000 before even a hearing or a mediation took place, then when i had trouble paying he threatend to lien my house! He made several assurances that didn't even come close to being reality. in the end I was nearly wiped out by this guy ! stay away!!!!!!

Shafer is not the guy you want to hire

AUTHOR: Do Not Hire Lewis Shafer - ()

So...... The "client" who wrote the following is my all time favorite, "Mr. Shafer certainly wasn't litigating with himself."

Are you kidding me? Mr Shafer is the CAUSE of additional unneccessary litigation. As the adage about saving money for a rainy day goes, when one deals with Shafer get ready......... Because I promise you.... Its raining.

And if God help you, you are not awarded fees........ its really raining hard out.

So, if you are looking to permanently destroy any hope of raising your children in a co parenting civil environment, hire this man. Because when hes done......... the damage personally and financially is so devastating, it will take years for any hope of civility with your ex souse. 

This man is plain and simple........ an additional destructive impediment to the already ugly and painful process of ending a marriage.

Very misleading characterization

AUTHOR: client1 - (United States of America)

I used Mr. Shafer in the past.  I read this report and found it be a very misleading.  Mr. Shafer is not cheap I will admit that but you certainly get what you pay for with attorneys.

Since I have seen this very same person post all over the internet when no one else did, I would imagine she was a very difficult person to deal with.  She says Mr. Shafer wanted revenge.   Interestingly enough, revenge seems to be her goal in life or she wouldn't have spent hours going after him on every web page possible.  I imagine her ex-husband got the same treatment.

Another thought, if you don't pay your bill to a doctor, hospital, credit card company, etc., they do lien your house.  Why would you possibly think a lawyer wouldn't be entitled to do the same thing.  

As for the bill, I saw on another website where the bill was supposedly $90k before mediation.  Here its yet another number.  I personally know from experience that it is more the actions of the lawyers and parties ON BOTH SIDES that generate large legal fees.  Mr. Shafer certainly wasn't litigating with himself.

Lewis Shafer Shafer Cohen LLP Excellent Attorney Boca Raton, Florida
Lewis Shafer/Shafer Cohen is one of south Florida's most knowledgeable attorneys in his field. I have found this man to be honorable and very professional. Whomever is writing these fictional comments has had things go wrong that were most likely out of Mr Shafers control, courts dont always rule in favor of a client as they sometimes seem to falsely assume. Mr Shafer always puts his best foot forward 100% of the time, found him to be a gentleman with integrity who is beyond any doubt, a great attorney. I would recommend Mr Shafer/Shafer Cohen to anyone that wants a great lawyer/South Florida law firm thats number one in their profession.
