Attorney Marisa F. Schafer
Marisa joined Schafer & Schafer, LLP in 2012 after working for several years in a small general practice firm in Fairfield, Connecticut. In 2001 she graduated with a B.A. in English from the University at Albany, State University of New York. Marisa graduated cum laude in 2005 from Quinnipiac University School of Law where she obtained her law degree and served as an Associate Editor on the Quinnipiac Law Review, Magister to the Burns Inn Chapter of Phi Delta Phi, and as a judge on the law school's Judicial Board.
Additionally, Marisa serves as a pro bono attorney for Lawyers for Children America, representing abused and neglected children in juvenile court proceedings. Due to her work and the work of Attorney Timothy M. Schafer in the juvenile court system, The Law Offices of Schafer & Schafer, LLP has been referred to Child Advocates of Connecticut for pro bono services. (The organization works with volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children, helping to protect their best interests and get them placed into safe permanent homes.) The law firm was recommended by various members of the bench and bar from the juvenile court program that serves both Danbury and Stamford, which led to the organization reaching out to the firm for legal counseling.
Marisa is admitted to practice law in the State of Connecticut and State of New York. She is also admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.
