Sometimes it feels like men have a big disadvantage when it comes to divorce, child custody and child support issues. Many find and feel that women get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to family law. I am very thankful thought that I had Darren to represent me in what was a hard fought divorce. Darren responded quickly and was professional from the beginning to the end of the case. He promptly got back to me, the lawyer’s on the other side, or the court. He kept the case moving along, in a good way for me and my children, despite having to deal with my ex changing attorneys multiple times.
There is nothing more important to me that my children. Darren saved my kids future. I got full residential custody of my kids which was very important for me and them. He successfully negotiated that I am able to keep all of my future income to use to take care of my children and not pay any maintenance. I am so pleased with Darren and the results he got for me and my children!

Helped me get unfounded allegations amended in a family matter fairly quickly and was informative of the process the entire way. I couldn't ask for a better outcome.

It was a pleasure working with Darren Shapiro during a very difficult divorce mediation. He is extremely knowledgeable, understanding, and prepared to work out the best outcome for both parties involved. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. His fees were exactly as stated and fair. I highly recommend him. It was great to have someone who understands how difficult the process can be and really care about your future and well being.

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.
