Christine A. Schafer - Founder & Managing Partner
Christine Schafer (“Crissy”) is the managing partner and owner of The Legacy Law Firm. Currently, she serves on the Board of Directors for Ms. Esquire, and was an American Bar Association Scholar. She has been recognized by Super Lawyers for two consecutive years (2018 & 2019) as a Rising Star for exhibiting excellence in her field, a distinction that only 2.5% of attorneys in Florida receive.
As an attorney, her number one priority is providing quality legal services and a superior client experience. Visiting a lawyer’s office can often time invoke feelings of anxiety, distrust and overall dread. Christine created The Legacy Law Firm to ensure that all clients feel comfortable from the moment they call to schedule their initial consultation until the conclusion of their case.

Her Why: Christine lost her father at the young age of 21 and she knows first hand what can go wrong if one doesn’t plan properly prior to their death. Being young, in another state and without any knowledge of the law at that time she was unable to see to it that her father’s dying wishes were honoured. These experiences have fueled her desire to ensure no family faces a similar situation and, if they do, that they at least have a competent, skilled and caring attorney on their side.
Christine resides in Broward County Florida with her husband Kristian, who is a Fire Captain, and their pug dog, Fudgy.

“All I can say is WOW...! “
Christine sets the bar very high for lawyers. It is not often that you find an attorney that has gone through a tragic life experience which led them to practicing in that specific area of law. When I found out that her dad passed away when she was a young girl, her passion and love for what she does all made sense to me. Her goal is to help her clients prevent the "headaches" that come attached to being unprepared for sudden, tragic life experiences. It is a peaceful feeling to know that if something were to happen to me or my husband, my family will be taken care of headache-free.
