With the new “no fault” divorce statue now in effect in New York, it’s more important than ever to consider the financial implications of splitting up.

Mitchell M. Shapiro practices primarily in the fields of Matrimonial and Criminal Law. His unique background, experience and approach to the law provides an alternative to the traditional big firm experience. As a sole practitioner Mr. Shapiro offers discrete and personalized legal representation of the highest caliber. A lawyer, not a law firm.

Background: A former member of the N.Y.P.D., Mr. Shapiro spent the majority of his police career as a supervisor assigned to the Criminal Justice Bureau. In that capacity he worked closely with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, where honesty and integrity are cherished along with success. His approach to the practice of law reflects these values and provides a positive, rewarding and successful experience for his clients. Mr. Shapiro has handled matrimonial matters of all types, from the simplest of divorces to what one Justice called “the worst case I’ve ever had in my courtroom.” Every client is treated as the most important client, and every case is handled personally by Mr. Shapiro.

"The discreet and effective practice of law is a hallmark of this office. You should expect nothing less when you choose your representation."

There are times when a big firm is the right choice, when a "litigation team" is appropriate. However, most of the time what a client really needs is one good lawyer he or she can count on to protect their rights and fight for them. I am that good lawyer, the one who answers his phone when you call and goes to court with you when "your day" finally comes.
