    Mr. Schachter is the best family law attorney in these parts and the best attorney you can hire for this in Georgia in my opinion. I've had many prior lawyers over the years, and I can honestly say that Mr. Schachter is the best lawyer I have ever hired. He is highly respected and came highly recommended to me by a court employee who had seen him in action in past court proceedings and was herself super impressed. Mr. Schachter actually practices about 2 hours away from the county where my case was heard, but our Judge was familiar with him and impressed from prior cases David handled in front of him. In the end I am a father who thanks to Mr. Schachter has primary custody of my children- unusual for this part of the Georgia. David is a great strategist and he makes all the difference in a case. He is the warrior you want on your side in the courtroom. He's not intimidated and doesn't back down. He's the most expensive lawyer I’ve ever hired, but he was worth every dollar I paid him.

    Mr. David I. Schachter, Esq. won my case and truly changed my life. I can can think of no better way to thank him than to write about what he did for me and my family so that others know who to turn to for the best possible results. I was facing a situation of paying lifetime alimony and had already paid it for many years with no hope for relief. We had been to court many times over the years and I had all but lost hope that I would ever obtain relief. After decades of this never-ending alimony obligation having such a negative an impact on me that it literally almost destroyed my ability to function David used his brilliant mind, his tremendous legal and courtroom expertise and ability and he utilized his skill and ingenuity to literally turn everything my ex said and had done against her. In doing so, David exposed my ex-wife and her attorney for liars and frauds. Quite simply- he was brilliant. Thank you so much David for everything you have done. Bless you and the work that you do.

    I had a very urgent situation that required an emergency protection order. I looked online and read all the amazing reviews and spoke with some friends here in Savannah that couldn't recommend David enough. I was absolutely adamant I needed David for my situation. I phoned David's office and David immediately made time for me despite his busy schedule and it being his day off/ work from home day. I was worried I would be a nervous wreck but David was so kind and caring and instantly put me at ease. After hearing my situation he immediately began drafting a protective order and spent the following three hours with me getting it ready for court. He got me in front of a judge the very next morning despite courts being at limited operations due to Covid 19. In front of the judge he was so clear and knew all the facts of my case and he of course got my life, house, dogs and possessions back in one morning. I cannot emphasize enough how much David helped me change my life. Thank you Read less

    David Schachter did more than I honestly thought possible. He was an absolute bulldog in the court room and nothing slipped by. It stays on offense! I now have the pleasure of joint physical custody when I don't think any other attorney could have achieved that for a father. Most attorneys will push to settle but David determines the outcome you hope to achieve and fights for more! Excellent attorney if you're tired of being stepped on! Read less

    David made the situation seem more comfortable. Divorce is the last situation anyone wants to face. David made the divorce and circumstances surrounding the divorce more understandable. If you want an attorney who will fight for you, he and his team will do everything in their ability to resolve your issues surrounding the divorce. You, as the client, will have to provide the information for him to do his job, and David wants you to be a part of the proceedings. Going to court, and going before the judge was unsettling, but David was in his place to perform. David exceeded and surpassed any prior expectations while in court, the courtroom is his place and he will surpass all expectations you have of him. His team, Andrea and Kendra, are very informative and receptive to your needs. While David is tied up in court with other clients, the two provide information to me and answered all questions or relayed the message to David for me. Read less

    David Schachter has been a godsend. He cut through the mess of manipulation and instinctively knows how to uncover the mask of deceit. He is a bulldog in the courtroom and truly knows “The Art of War." Unlike others who may simply tear apart everything in their path, David achieves better results, and he adheres to a more honorable and advanced approach. He’s not a savage, but rather, brilliantly skillful. David draws from what seems to be a true passion to protect. He gets to know and really understand the heart of the situation as if he lived it himself. David never gives up, and never gives in to terror and dishonesty. It’s hard to put into words. Like the fiercest of Angels drawing from a higher cause. What comes to mind is St. Michael who leads God's armies against Satan's forces and becomes the healer of angels. David and his team is one in a million with a unique set of skills and experience that has helped me for many years stand up to what seems to be evil at the core. Read less
