Your South Shore Nassau County Divorce Mediator

Mediation It's easy to feel isolated when you're dealing with the complexity and heartache of a divorce. Even if your relationship ended on good terms, you're still dealing with the confusion of having to divide assets, deal with child custody arrangements, and even decide who should be able to continue living in a family home. When a divorce takes place, there are few things that can help the people involved to feel better. However, it's often useful to know that there's someone nearby that can offer the assistance that you need - even if that means looking for an alternative route of dispute resolution.

As a stunning location, filled with opportunities for growth and development, the South Shore of Nassau County is a great place for many people to call home. From the incredible Baldwin Harbor, to the nearby locations of Jones Beach State Park, Point Lookout, and even Long Beach, there are so many parts of South Shore Nassau County that make it great. For people in the process of divorce, an unexpected gem in the landscape may be the availability of a friendly and welcoming office for mediation, collaborative representation and family law. Attorney and Divorce Mediation Darren Shapiro's Law and Mediation office can be found just off of Jericho Turnpike, a short distance from the homes in South Shore Nassau County.
