Bob Lutz Recommends John F. Schaefer Law Firm

When Robert Lutz found himself contemplating divorce, and which attorney to represent him, he chose Schaefer based on his reputation of professionalism and integrity.
“Well, the reason I chose the law firm of John F. Schaefer is because of reputation. At the time of that divorce, I was still working for Chrysler. I talked to Lee Iacocca, who was my immediate superior. He was Chairman, I was President. He said, ‘Well, if you’re thinking about divorce, let me tell you: Get a good lawyer. I highly recommend John Schaefer.’ Who did not represent Iacocca; he represented Iacocca’s wife. I gather Iacocca was not pleased with the outcome, and decided she had gotten the better lawyer.”

And it is why today he would recommend the Law Firm of John F. Schaefer to anyone considering separation or divorce.

“I always recommend John Schaefer. Any high profile case, any of my friends, I always recommend John, because of his incredible professionalism, his realism, his diplomatic skills, his charm, and his ability to get you through it with a minimum of emotional and financial damage.
