About Our Firm

Schaffer & Black, PC is a highly regarded litigation firm focusing its representation in the areas of Criminal Defense, Personal Injury, Divorce and Family Law, Estate and Probate matters, and other civil litigation.

Since 1999, our firm has represented thousands of satisfied clients. We pride ourselves in delivering top-notch customer service and keeping our clients informed and involved every step of the way. Most importantly, our clients work directly with their attorney - either Eric Schaffer or Bryon Black - instead of an associate or junior attorney.

For someone unfamiliar with laws, legal settings, and litigation, any sort of case can be stressful, whether it is a criminal defense, personal injury, family law, or estate law case. With our highly-experienced Frederick attorneys by your side, you can be confident that your goal is in reach. We act quickly and think even faster, providing our clients with truly responsive and compassionate legal representation they both deserve and expect.

Although highly respected as a skilled litigation and trial law firm, we take as much pride in the fact that we are often able to work closely with our clients to avoid costly litigation. With our reputation, attorneys on the other side know that we are always prepared for trial, which allows us to frequently reach agreements with opposing attorneys or insurance companies that are in the best interest of our clients. Whether through negotiation or trial—the best interest of our clients is our primary concern.

As a client of Schaffer & Black, PC, you'll have the benefit of our over 60 years of combined experience on your side. We will work to ensure that your legal problem achieves the best possible outcome. You can be assured your case will remain absolutely confidential and we will strive to keep costs down and offer excellent legal services for reasonable fees.
