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.

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.

“In View” with Larry King highlights the complexities of divorce. Experienced, reputable firms such as The Law Firm of John F. Schaefer are able to navigate and tend to the many moving parts of complex divorce proceedings to ensure a smooth and dignified process.
