My divorce had special issues at play as my ex has issues with multiple addictions. These issues impacted our finances and children in significant ways. Amy represented me through our collaborative divorce. I can’t say enough good things about Amy’s knowledge and skills. She has a high moral compass that kept my focus on the big picture, despite the natural grief, anger, resentment and sadness that would pull me down. She does a great job of keeping things fair and balanced, logical and purposeful. She was direct and honest with me about likely outcomes – particularly when they wouldn’t be in my favor and then was creative about finding solutions. She was a God send for me and helped me land softly after what was a heart wrenching negotiation. I’m thrilled with our outcomes. And I’m happier, healthier and more whole as a human being than I have been in years. Thank you Amy for helping to get me here!

I went to several lawyers known to be the toughest in the city to represent me against the "barracuda" my husband hired. None of them wanted to tangle with her. Amy, despite knowing the reputation of the difficult to work with attorney she'd be facing, stepped up to the task and helped me navigate through with grace, wit, and patience. She didn't get rattled by the nasty tactics and often helped me gather up the strength to persevere without falling apart. Amy has a wonderful sense of humor which I greatly appreciated. She was always coming up with clever ways to negotiate and expedite. I could rest knowing someone had the bases covered for me. This process doesn't have to be hard if you have the right attorney on your side!

Amy Shapiro is an excellent attorney. She is a tenacious advocate, exceptionally smart, and a creative problem solver. Amy is very compassionate and caring for her clients as well. My divorce was very difficult and Amy's uncanny ability to keep me calm was amazing. I could not have gotten through it without her. Above all her ethics are impeccable. As legal professional myself, I have never encountered another attorney more responsive and on the ball. I strongly recommend Amy. I am very grateful that she was my attorney.

Amy, is an honest, hard-working and insightful attorney. I have worked opposite her on numerous cases, and she always has the ability to advance a client's position, while looking for creative solutions that can work for both parties and reduce conflict. She is one of the few lawyers I refer friends to as she treats all cases and clients ethically and as a priority.
