Brenda B. Shapiro is a Family Law attorney and litigator. She provides legal counsel to clients on family law matters, including prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, divorce, child custody, access and time sharing, post-dissolution, domestic violence, and grandparents’ rights. She established the Law Offices of Brenda B. Shapiro, LLC in 1994, where she is Managing Partner.

Ms. Shapiro also practices the dispute-resolution method known as Collaborative Law. The method emphasizes family-focused decision-making, cooperation, commitments to a faster process, potential cost savings and family privacy – all without court intervention.

Collaborative Law combines attorneys, accountants, financial planners, mental health professionals and mediators, who work jointly with clients in a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation. It is designed to help divorcing parties resolve their differences in a non-adversarial setting, allowing them to focus on the best interests of their family.

Ms. Shapiro was a consulting attorney in writing the brief for Miami’s high-profile custody case of six-year-old Cuban Elian Gonzalez, who arrived in the United States on an inner tube without his mother, who died in the crossing.
