"I believe in a sophisticated, calm approach to family law matters, not scorched litigation strategy.”

Corey M. Shapiro is a sought-after trial and appellate lawyer who concentrates his practice in all areas of matrimonial and family law, including custody, support, visitation and equitable distribution. Corey is well-known for being a passionate advocate for his clients without resorting to hyperbole.

A highly respected trial lawyer, Corey has an AV® Preeminent™ rating from Martindale Hubbell. He has significant litigation and trial experience in New York’s Family and Supreme Courts.

Corey is also known for his work outside the courtroom and has extensive experience in negotiating prenuptial, separation and settlement agreements. Corey is a certified mediator who believes that most family law matters benefit from mediation.

Corey is a member of the matrimonial and family law committees and sections of the major bar associations, including the New York County Lawyers' Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

Corey also believes that charitable service is an indispensable element of the private practice of law—and every bit as important as work for paying clients. He devotes countless hours to the New York Legal Assistance Group and National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City.

Prior to opening his own law firm on January 1, 2013, Corey was a partner of Wolfson Carroll & Shapiro.
