A Superb Lawyer

I had David fighting my custody battle and now my child support case. He was like an attack dog when calling out the B.S. and laying down the cold hard facts as they were. He didn’t allow the court or the other party to trample my rights as the mother of these children for baseless accusations. I genuinely believe he will go all out for you as he has done for me. He was confident and supportive from the very beginning. He presented a respectful, kind, and caring demeanor. He was on time, he kept me informed, and we won the war!

BEYOND EXPECTATION

My Name is Darrin I’m A retired NYCPD Lieutenant I been involved in Family Court for closed to 6 years involving Child Custody of my Daughter Now 6 years Old ..I was extremely Disappointed and frustrated with How the System in particularly The Referee( Judge ) and more importantly the Lawyers I had hirer prior to Attorney David Schnall My Disappointment was how obviously bias the Referee( Judge) seem to be I had heard that Fathers do poorly in these family Courts but I thought surely that’s exaggerated abd to my chagrin I discovered that indeed their is Conscious or perhaps an Unconscious bias in that it seemed what I had to say and offer was irrelevant to The Judge I became frustrated as every Attorney I hired stated things at initial hiring interview encouraging Me that they would fight vigorously so that I would retain them and then perform in totally opposite at hearing and upon confronting them after their performance at hearing They ALL would stating that family Court is really A kangaroo court, that I’m not able as A father to really be heard by A court Dominated By Female working Mothers ( as Judges/Referees) I have hired 3 Attorneys and paid consulting fees to Two other Attorney Prior to Meeting and hiring David Schnall The Prior 3 Attorneys that I hired ALL TOOK my MONEY and didn’t even Bother to present my case, My position on Why I should have Custody in fact One of the Attorney whom made me all types of promises of his due diligence failed to even present one article of evidence to sway the judge to grant me custody ..NOT EVEN basic Photographs of me and My Daughter …So when I again sort an Attorney to represent me in A hearing I didn’t have high or even moderate expectation. I assume MR, David Schall would be the same as all those other Lawyers tell you everything you want to hear at the initial meeting in order for you to sign a retainer ..and then you wouldn’t hear from them until right before your hearing date where they wouldn’t truly know in-depth your case or your positions on issues . David Schnall was phenomenal at that first meeting. He looked sharp and more importantly he was confident and STRAIGHT FORWARD, He also interacted with me in A manner that seem really personal Like he saw me He heard me Like I said I’m a retire NYC Police officer having served 20 years On patrol I’m use to hearing BS. I can detect dishonesty ..MR David Schnall registered as truthful However I still had my doubts as I had been BURNED SERVERLY and those of you whom are UNFORTUANELY in family court understand what I’m talking about …MR David Schnall has performed in court on MY BEHAVE and that of my Child far BEYOND my expectation and what I had thought possible at my LAST HEARING MR David Schnall Performed Brilliantly He seized control of the process( The hearing) and obtain and WON EVERY POINT AND CONDITION I DESIRE while simultaneously having ALL the petitioner’s motions and modification dismissed I have been in family court over 5 years and this was THE FIRST TIME I truly was heard through representation and UPON being HEARD through MR David Schnall VOICE. The Referee for the FIRST TIME RULED COMPLETELY IN MY FAVOR!!!!!! I have NEVER written A review of Anybody or anything in All the 60 years of my Life!!! but those of you out there whom hope and Disappointment is A REALITY that you are NOT BEING HEARD in family court and that Lawyers have taken your Money and giving you NOTHING to the point where you feel ROBBED don’t give up HOPE give David Schnall A call HE IS THE TRUTH…HE WILL STRONGLY INTELLIGENTLY EXPERTLY represent you and CHAMPION your cause So that YOU can be THE PARENT YOU DESIRE TO BE TO YOUR CHILD or CHILDERN Thank You David Schnall for being WHAT A LAWYER and AN ADVOCATE should be for His or Her Client

Really Cares
David defended me with ACS having a founded incident on my record. He was able to have it removed and records sealed. What moved me the most with him is that he fights for you as someone who really personally cares and not just as a lawyer on another job.

A Sincere thank you.

In going through a divorce proceeding I had fallen behind supporting my son in college from my first marriage. The issues were complicated and involved different states. Davids professional competence and personal manner led me through the family court system to the best possible solution that I could have hoped for. He is very easy to work with and clear on the law, procedures, and protocols you will face. He was aggressive and professional in representing my interests. I was served well as you will be.

Fights for your rights.

David gave us honest straight forward advise. He works quickly to give you results and explains how things really work. He will fight for what is right and will argue your case with passion. He did more for our case in 6 months than past layer did in 4 yrs on a highly complicated parental kidnapping case.

Best Lawyer Ever!

I’m so glad I was able to reconnect with David Schnall after many years. He has done miracles for me and my family. Every court appearance resulted in a win. He handled my Child Custody, Family Offense Restraining Order, & Child Support. In addition he was able to handle all the ACS related issues that my ex was trying to throw my way. In the end I was granted Sole Custody and Permanent 2 year max restraining order from my ex. Very intelligent lawyer. He didn’t skip at any objections thrown his way. Always made sure to be prepared prior to every appearance and familiarize himself with the case on hand. Couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.

The Very BEST!

David Schnall is sensitive and kind while maintaining true professionalism and an inner knowledge of the effort one must put forth to endure a custody case. He gave extra time,extra clarity, validation when needed, and certainly patience. He knows the system, recognizes it’s advantages/disadvantages and works well within it’s limits. I hired him TWICE! It isn’t just that we won,,, It’s that David realistically reassured me which gave me the confidence I needed to continue in a nerve-wracking, heartbreaking case, seeing it to fruition. His support was beyong compare!
Hire him!

Amazing Attorney

David Schnall is hands down one of the most trustworthy and genuine individuals you will ever meet. Rest assured that you are in good hands and that he is going to do everything in his power to take the best care of your case, along with expediting the process as quickly as possible. I always knew that he has my best interests at heart. It’s rare that an attorney possesses such great attributes in the sense that he is easy to talk to and when he says he is going to get something done, he does it. David’s compassion for his clients surpasses anything I have experienced. He was kind, caring, efficiently, be so invariably responsive, and handle every situation so adeptly and always kept me informed and gave me the advice that I needed to fit my situation. Most family law issues do not keep regular business hours. David was always responsive anytime I needed to talk to him whenever any issues arose. His advice and guidance, I believe, helped shape my case into a much quicker and stronger one. He took a personal interest in what was going on, and stayed that involved. I will be honored to recommend David to family and friends.

Defense against Wrongful Elderly Guardianship Petition

David was invaluable in helping us through a difficult time. We were dealing with overwhelming emotions and stress concerning elder abuse and fighting against a guardianship petition submitted by family members who attempted to wrongfully strip away the rights of a fully capacitated elderly parent by falsely accusing her of being incompetent. David not only walked us through the process but also provided strong fierce defense in the courtroom. In addition, he answered our questions, no matter how trivial. Now that the case is successfully over we can move forward and focus on healing. Words cannot express his outstanding and professional handling of every aspect of the case. We never knew David prior to this and only happened upon his services through an Internet search. We took a chance as we walked through the unknown legalities of a wrongful guardianship hearing and David did not disappoint. His offices were professional and located close to the Family Court and Queens Supreme Court for meetings prior to hearings. We would not hesitate to retain his services again or recommend him. We won!

Facing our worst fear, David Schnall came through 100%

A legal issue came up with our son which my wife and I were very worried about. David didn’t promise us anything but he was confident he could put this issue to bed. We told him what we wanted and he didn’t back down. In the end we got exactly what we wanted. David genuinely cares. He stayed in touch and called to prep us before court. I will add that the same issue came up with our daughter but we lost on that because we had another attorney at the time.

David Schnall review

David Schnall took the time to answer all my questions and explained the various processes for my 4 different cases as well as my divorce. Every time I reached out for guidance, legal expertise or corcerns he’d reply promptly. He made a very difficult time a bit less stressful. All my cases worked out better than I expected. I only have one still pending due to circumstances beyond his or my own control.
