Eric L. Shapiro
Attorney at Law
However, effectively assisting individuals in Family Law matters, especially those involving custody disputes, takes more than simply knowing the law, it requires the ability to understand the emotional complexities and issues faced by people experiencing a family crisis. I went through my own divorce and understand, the absolutely devastating effect Divorce Court can have on your life. Surveys indicate that only a death in the family has a greater impact.
I am the proud father of two amazing children (Zoe, 7, and Ben, 9), and it was their birth that had the largest transformative effect on my life, as well as my law practice. Prior to their birth, I never really understood how catastrophic a custody dispute could be to a client. I believe I now have a very clear idea of the horror faced by parents fighting over the children and I believe this lends a greater level of fervor to my advocacy.
