About Linda Schaeffer


I retired as partner of Frazier & Deeter, a regional CPA Firm, where I led the Firm’s Litigation Consulting Services practice. In that capacity I worked with clients and attorneys with all financial aspects of divorce and child support matters. Prior to Frazier & Deeter, I was a partner with the regional accounting firm of WithumSmith+Brown as a Partner and Director of Marital Dissolution Consulting Services. With over 30 years in practice in marital dissolution matters, I am a reliable name in domestic mediations.

While working as forensic CPA in divorce I was featured in The Journal of Accountancy discussing the importance of a neutral CPA in divorce cases. I was also a frequent speaker at various meetings, conferences and seminars, including guest appearances on Good Morning America and several radio stations in NJ, Philadelphia and Atlanta. I have also spoken at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Litigation Consulting conferences, NJ Judicial College, the Georgia Family Law Institute, ICLE and AAML seminars.

My training as a mediator was with the Atlanta Justice Center and my training as an arbitrator was with Henning Mediation & Arbitration. I also hold Specialized Domestic Violence Certificate.

Much of my spare time is used to facilitate and oversee the Peachtree Presbyterian Church Divorce Recovery Support Group. The groups meet for 16 weeks and are free of charge to the attendees. More information can be obtained at peachtreechurch.com/pastoralcare.
