Family law attorney Amy L. Shapiro understands she protects what her clients value most – their family, their assets, and their livelihood – and strives to be both professional and determined in her advocacy, as well as compassionate in her approach. She has been a practicing family law attorney in Milwaukee for over 33 years, and has learned each client brings in their own distinct issues, values, and interests.
Milwaukee Divorce Attorney & Family Lawyer
As a Milwaukee divorce attorney, Attorney Shapiro’s practice focuses on a broad array of related issues, including Wisconsin divorce, paternity, property division, spousal support, child custody and child custody jurisdiction, child support, domestic violence issues, domestic partnership dissolutions, and post judgment matters. As a Milwaukee family law attorney, Shapiro represents parents as full participants in creating a fair and prosperous post separation world, by listening to her clients, assessing their interests, and coming up with creative solutions. Attorney Shapiro also drafts prenuptial and marital property agreements. She previously practiced civil legal services in Georgia for low income clients, before returning to practice civil legal services in Wisconsin in 1984, and exclusively family law in private practice since 1991.
Milwaukee Family Law Mediator & Litigator
As a Milwaukee family law mediator, Attorney Shapiro focuses on mediation for both represented and unrepresented parties, focusing her strengths as a problem solver. These mediation skills also assist her, as advocate counsel, to look at the interests of her clients and the importance of the newly-formed family, and create a narrative to the court about the importance of her client’s perspective. Extensively trained in collaborative family law practice, in addition to mediation, she uses her problem solving skills and her knowledge and experience, in both the court and in negotiations. Attorney Shapiro believes her creativity and tenacity — as well as her empathy — provide her with a unique perspective in her representation of her clients.
Attorney Shapiro is a member of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin; she also has sat on various community boards, and has authored several published articles on Wisconsin family law. As a past board member and Vice President of the Leander J. Foley Jr. Matrimonial American Inns of Court, Attorney Shapiro strives to foster mentoring to less experienced Milwaukee divorce attorneys, and continuing education for all Milwaukee family law attorneys.
