Jenna N. Shapiro
One of the most important qualities a family lawyer can have is compassion—a willingness to empathize with her clients to better understand how to meet their legal, financial and emotional goals. But compassion alone is not enough, a family lawyer must possess both compassion and dedication—a dedication for zealous advocacy on her client’s behalf and to be a permanent fixture in the trenches until the case is concluded. Compassion, dedication and advocacy are Jenna Shapiro’s watchwords for her practice. What sets Jenna apart from other family lawyers can be summed up in her one sentence philosophy: “I make your problems my problems to solve.”
