Small case load, individual attention

about us

criminal defense & personal injury law firm in atlanta, georgia

At the turn of the century, small-town lawyers were going extinct. Flashy firms with million dollar advertising budgets and marble offices overwhelmed the industry with “one size fits all” style justice. Clients became a commodity who never even met their lawyer in person. Around this time, two lawyers began their legal careers with a different vision than those “one-size-fits-all” firms. These lawyers, the attorneys of ChancoSchiffer, P.C., had the goal of treating clients as individuals and helping them solve their problems one at a time.

ChancoSchiffer P.C.’s Partners

Joshua Schiffer was raised in East Cobb, by a Kennesaw State University Professor and a chemist, with a strong emphasis on Social Responsibility and the equality of opportunity. Having graduated from The Walker School and Clark University, Josh left the GSU College of Law with a clerkship in his home-town and a future in politics. Trading the courts for Real Estate, Josh eventually fell into aggressive trial work in Fulton County.

Douglas B. Chanco had the good fortune of being raised by a lifelong member of the Criminal Defense Bar in Florida. From a very young age, Doug was exposed to some of the greatest legal minds in the sunshine state. A future in law was assured and Eagle Scout Doug followed his passion into a position in law enforcement. Trading the squad car for the prosecutors’ table, Doug eventually found his way into the Fulton County Courthouse and began butting heads with a certain Joshua Schiffer.

Customized Service, Small Firm Attention

In 2011 Doug and Josh combined their independent firms, The Schiffer Firm, LLC and The Law Offices of Douglas B. Chanco, LLC, and formed ChancoSchiffer P.C.

Now ChancoSchiffer P.C. is a collective of attorneys providing the same representation we want for our friends and families. Our firm continues to grow due to our results and referrals, the real measures of success.
