I am excited to fulfill all of your family law needs!

I have focused my entire legal career on family matters for the full range of domestic cases. I am happy to begin a case from the intial filing, and have taken cases all the way to the court of appeals. I am ready and able to help you with whatever issues your family needs to work through. 

I was born in Chicago and raised in Connecticut, I moved to the Denver metro area after graduating magna cum laude from St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami.

Divorce
Daniel was very professional and prompt with handling my divorce case. He was easy to get a hold of and get answers from when I needed them. He was willing to put up a fight for me when needed and was going to make sure that I got what I needed from my divorce.

Complicated Family Matter
Daniel has been very professional and a true advocate for our court case. This case has been very stressful and not a common run of the mill situation. Daniel has helped us with the many twists and turns of the legal venues and the understanding of what we would expect and what we should work towards for a successful outcome. I struggled with understanding unprofessional CFIs and lazy judges, but with Daniel's insightfulness and the trust we gave to him, we navigated a horrific family matter with courage and resourcefulness. Daniel continues to support us with this ongoing case and we view him as a true friend tried through fire. I cannot thank my sister, another attorney, enough for recommending Daniel. Please know that Daniel will work the very best for you and your case.

Best family law and PPO atty
Daniel is the fourth atty I’ve put on retainer in a very long custody battle over my daughter. By far he is the best. He is sharp and cuts to the quick both in his court motions and during litigation. He wouldn’t back down and he really cared about my daughter and the outcome. When my ex’s wife filed a restraining order against me for showing up at her house to pick up my daughter he so throughly humiliated them via cross exam we didn’t even have to offer a defense for the court to dismiss the case. Shortly thereafter my ex finally gave up the battle and my daughter can finally be a healthy normal teenager. I can’t recommend Daniel enough.

The Absolute Best!!
When something traumatic happened to my child, I was desperate to find a last-minute lawyer only a couple days before a set hearing. I was matched with Daniel through the firm he previously worked at, and I had no idea the spectacular service I would receive. He is attentive, knowledgeable, considerate, personable and has been an absolute god-send. I am certain that he has his clients and their children’s best interest in mind during all situations. I recommend him to everyone in search of a family/divorce lawyer and will continue to do so. I am incredibly grateful to have his assistance!

I couldn't have gotten through it without him
I can not express enough how incredible Daniel was for me and my children. He always went the extra mile for us and he was an absolute God-send. He always made us feel like a priority and I would not have had the strength to make it through the lengthy divorce proceedings without him. He would constantly give me unwavering support and encouragement to keep pushing. I cannot recommend him enough. He will keep you calm and confident in the most stressful of situations. Thank you for everything.

When you’re fighting for your life, Dan is the man.
I was forced into a position where I knew I had to get a lawyer in order to defend myself, and most importantly, my children. This was the biggest fight of my life and I knew I had to make the right choice or I’d suffer the consequences. After an extensive search, I landed at Daniel Zarnowski. Daniel offered me the most accurate and sound legal advice and the best representation that I could have found in the state of Colorado. Most importantly though, it was done with a level of integrity, care, and professionalism that I have not come across in a long time. Not just as my counsel, but as a human being. He fought for me tirelessly and gave me hands down the most superlative representation I’ve ever had legal or otherwise. If you are looking for someone to come along side you in your fight, someone who cares and has the knowledge to back it up, this is the man. If he can’t get it done, it’s because it’s not possible. There is no other reason. You will not regret having Danial in your corner.

Excellent divorce Lawyer
Daniel absolutely exceeded my expectations for my divorce. I have two children and an ex who has a drinking problem. It was a high stress divorce. Daniel always called me back quickly. He was prepared in court and went after them. He made sure I was comfortable and eased my mind many times. He filed any and everything for me. I would hire him over and over again.

Divorce
I hired Daniel for my divorce case. He made sure to keep me informed on what was going on and explained anything that I didn't understand. He was a great help through all of it. I'm so glad he was there. I couldn't have made it through all that without him.

All I can say is: He is one and only!!
Mr. Zarnowski, my attorney is the second attorney I've had in my life. Not only he's been passionate about me and my case, also extremely helpful and wise, as well as very organized. His closing argument did it all as well as his hard work. He's one of the very few best ones and he's definitely mine, as an attorney, as well as a friend and I wish him and his family the best .

Daniel was extremely thorough and helpful throughout the entire process
I hired Daniel based on a recommendation from another firm without any previous knowledge of him or his firm. I needed someone to quickly deal with a child custody case regarding moving out of state. I wasn’t set on hiring him until I had an initial phone consultation with him. He diligently listened to every aspect of my case guiding me through the next steps to take. I felt confident and reassured that my case would be taken care of thoroughly. Throughout the entire process he has been knowledgeable, quick, and most of all, responsive to my questions and needs. If you are looking for someone to handle your family law needs, I can't imagine anyone better!

Divorce and Child Custody
My divorce and child custody case was significantly longer, and more complex, than most cases and Daniel represented me through the entire process without fail. He was always motivated and ready to what was needed to achieve what was best for me, my child, and case itself. He consistently communicated with me about how the processes worked and explained why certain things needed to be done. He was also never afraid to seek assistance from colleagues if it was needed or if he was unsure of something. Along with that he never left my questions or concerns unaddressed and made sure to always respond to my inquiries promptly, even if it was a weekend or holiday. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better attorney for my case. He was truly a great blessing for my case and I would recommend him to anyone no matter how simple or complex their case may be.

My divorce - Attorney Daniel Zarnowski
Attorney Daniel Zarnowski was recommended to me by a friend who had been happy with his work in his child custody case a few years ago. After meeting with him, I chose to hire Mr. Zarnowski because he really listened to my story, cared about what I was going through and genuinely wanted to help in my situation. He proved to be highly knowledgeable in the area of divorce law. Daniel and his team took care of everything; filling out and filing of all the paperwork to the court, knowing the dates and deadlines and all of the requirements, dealing with my ex-husband and his attorney, all of the negotiations. Daniel wasn’t just pushing paper around, he really stood up for me and had mine/my kids best interest in mind. He was very respectful with opposing counsel, but he was direct and firm and wouldn’t back down during negotiations. He constructed an excellent parenting plan which included things I wouldn’t have even thought of. In my opinion Daniel Zarnowski is an excellent attorney and expert in his field. I have recommended him to family and friends and I will definitely be calling him with any future custody issues, child support modifications, or any other family law issues.

Separation Dispute
Daniel was great. He took his time and we always went over the details of the case thoroughly. My case was dismissed, but there was more that needed to happen even so. Daniel was the mediator between my ex and I, and helped me close a shared expense without me being in the line of fire. All was settled and done, I'm grateful I didn't have to do it on my own. Thank you Daniel!

10 Stars!!
Everyone at Shapiro Law was friendly and courteous. If it wasn't for them I don't know where my case would stand today. They took the utmost priority in helping my family and I not only feel better about our situation but taking the corrective actions to ensure our case would be positively resolved. I truly mean it, if 10 stars were an option that's where my review should stand. Daniel was incredibly diligent in my case. He helped my family and I feel better about our case and where we initially stood, but also fierce and persistent in court when the time called. Anyone in need of legal advice should consider Daniel and Shapiro Law as their first choice of counsel.

Do not hire especially if you have a high conflict case
Daniel turned out to be the worst attorney possible for me. It was a high conflict case about three years ago. The outcome of the case was as bad as possible. I paid over 50k and he showed up to the trial with very little preparation no representation and like a freshman showing up for his first mid term exam. All i can say is we last on all possible fronts and he was my attorney. He even had the gall after the judgement to say to me you got screwed and he was the attorney who chose the private judge after the original judge refused to hear the trial because daniel had not followed the judges requirements for submitting paperwork. In my opinion he is not competent.
