Brooklyn Divorce Experts


If you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, please accept our condolences. What you’re going to go through in the next several months will be emotional and exhausting, and it will also require that you make significant life decisions – with far-reaching legal and financial repercussions – from a place of stress and worry.

But if this is the right decision for you – and for most of our clients, despite the difficulty of it, they believe very strongly that it is – then you’ll want the kind of professional, compassionate, and tough legal advice and strategy that Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino provide for our clients.

We’ve worked with hundreds of Brooklyn clients as they’ve gone through divorce, and we have a simple approach to every matter we handle: We listen to our client.

Before we draw up papers or commence negotiations, we talk to you, at length, to understand where you are, what your goals are for the settlement and your future, how your finances have been and what you want them to be, how you expect child custody issues to be handled between yourself and your ex-spouse, and more.

We want to know you better, but more importantly, we want to approach your divorce proceedings with a clear sense of your goals, so that we can pursue exactly the right outcome. We make sure we understand where you’re coming from before we ever contact opposing counsel (if your spouse has retained counsel) to begin negotiating terms.

As the legal situation plays out, you’ll find yourself going through a significant emotional process as well. When a marriage ends, however mediocre the marriage may have been, a lot of hopes and expectations end with it.

It’s a time of loss, reflection, and sometimes a lot of anger. One of the most important jobs that divorce attorneys have is helping our clients separate their in-the-moment emotions from the often very permanent decisions they have to make as the divorce plays out.

Child custody is a serious issue that is a big contributor to many divorces turning rancid. When there are children involved, we do our utmost to ensure that all custody and visitation decisions are made for the best interest of the child.

When the parties are committed to constructive co-parenting down the road, we bend over backwards to maintain good relations, but if your former spouse is using your children as bargaining chips, we will fight vigorously to protect your parental rights and ensure your access to your children.

The same can be true for property and other assets, though generally those topics are less charged. Our goal in every divorce case is to see that our client comes through strong, and has the resources at the end of the process to start a new life in whatever way they wish.

It’s how the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino handle every divorce case, and we can help you.
