Darren is an extremely dedicated, professional, and knowledgeable attorney who I would highly recommend to anyone in need of divorce counsel. I contacted him after having met with several other divorce attorneys to represent me in a Domestic Dispute matter. While the others seemed interested only in getting my retainer, Darren took the time to actually read the documents I had brought and offered solid and understandable advice. And when representing me in court he ended up having the matter dismissed. I immediately retained him for the ensuing Divorce and Custody case I was facing. Once again Darren helped to make a long and stressful situation much easier to handle, especially given the fact that the opposing side was more than a little difficult to deal with. At times I thought that he was not only my attorney, but my therapist and friend. After all was done, I ended up getting the custody I wanted and an Agreement that was fair to everyone involved. If I'm ever in a situation where I need an attorney again, Darren will be the first person I call.

My name is Monica.
My husband and I worked with Darren Shapiro on changing our son's name.
From the very beginning he was very professional, prompt and courteous.
The entire legal process took just 2 months.
He made the process seem very easy and he explained things in a way that was very simple for us to understand.
We are very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him.
It was an absolute pleasure working with him.

If you require an attorney who understands hard-work, dedication, superior exemplary attention to detail AND won the case involving a highly complex intra-state case between Texas and New York family court -look no further than Darren Shapiro. I am endlessly thankful to Darren for his knowledge, professionalism and expertise with the notable consideration that I am located in Texas however my ex-husband is located in New York City. Darren genuinely listened to the details of my case and handled all of the filings, went to court on my behalf, and truly dominated when it came down to settling of the case. Darren's handling of my case didn't just end with the post-case settlement, his hard-work paved the way for the Texas Office of Attorney General's Office to further their case against a repeat offender. Again, I am endlessly thankful for Darren's knowledge and skill in transitioning my case into a successful positive outcome. Most importantly, my two children have the sincerest appreciation for Darren as he single-handedly changed the direction of their lives.

Darren handled our complicated family law matter by educating me on the law, giving me practical and real life knowledge and experiences to help me gauge expected results and timelines, and provided incremental steps that were implemented along the way, ultimately enabling my family to avoid a costly and painful court appearance and process. Darren is experienced, patient, and able to detail processes with clear and easily understood language, while having empathy and sensitivity for difficult matters.

I initially dealt with Darren Shapiro back in 2009 when he handled my divorce. He was always available to answer all my questions and quite knowledgable. I recently needed to contact him again and he responded without delay. I would recommend Darren without any reservation.

Mr. Shapiro understood what I wanted from my divorce. He was able to give me all my options and explained all the consequences very clearly so that I could make the right decisions for myself. He answered emails and phone calls promptly. Mr. Shapiro was always very professional and I would highly recommend his services.

After being told be several attorneys that I had "no case". Mr. Shapiro deftly handled a complicated interstate Paternity/Child Support case. There were many different issues that came into play- but the case was resolved in just under 6 months and my resolution was very satisfactory! I am most appreciative of his dedication and attention to every detail.

Constructive Emancipation is one of the most difficult areas for a Plaintiff to obtain a favorable decision. Darren Shapiro not only received one but two favorable Constructive Emancipation decisions for me. Remarkably the second decision was obtained on appeal. Many attorneys would say that winning on appeal in the second case would be slim but Darren presented the facts in a way that clearly showed that the original decision should have been in the Plaintiff’s favor. It’s been a very long time in New York State since a case with similar facts as mine was decided in favor of the Plaintiff. The bar to Constructively Emancipate a child in New York State is very high and rightly so. It was not enough to only have the facts on your side but you must present them in a manner that overwhelmingly convinces the court that the only correct decision is to Constructive Emancipate the child. Darren Shapiro is a fair, reasonable and hard-working attorney that will do his best to obtain the best outcome for you. He doesn’t use Court TV antics to achieve his results only practical realistic approaches. I have recommended him to friends and family and would use him again.

If you are seeking a matrimonial / divorce lawyer, I would highly recommend obtaining Darren Shapiro to represent your case. I lived out of the state of New York during the time of filing. After calling several other lawyers in the NY area to check how they would handle my case and fees, I found Darren Shapiro's information. He was prompt in personally calling back on the initial contact and throughout my case. He communicated effectively and kept me updated throughout. His explanations regarding the case were informative, and guided me throughout the process. His points and counterpoints in the agreement / settlement process were well-thought-out, and justified. Therefore, no major concessions had to be made, and was happy to have found a lawyer who cared. He provides professional service and for a very reasonable fee. Overall he helped make this transition in a major life event easier to handle. I really appreciate all his help in this. Again if you need to retain a lawyer, I highly recommend contacting Darren Shapiro.
