Jeffrey P. Wasserman

Jeffrey Wasserman leads the Family Law Practice Group at Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann. After more than 40 years working in the Family Law arena – previously serving as Chair of the Family Law Section of The Florida Bar – Jeff is currently focusing his practice as a Peacemaker in Collaborative Law.

The Collaborative Law Process is designed to provide families with the ability to move on in a positive relationship after a divorce is final.  Both parties are integral to the Process and have a voice at the table in order to provide their input in developing the provisions of a fair and equitable resolution.  This would include a Parenting Plan for the children as well as a Marital Settlement Agreement for all other issues.  Jeff also provides assistance in drafting Premarital and Post Nuptial Agreements.

As a leader in this emerging area of law, Jeff serves on the Board of Directors of the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals (FACP) and co-chairs the Fundraising Committee.  He was directly involved with the writing of the Standards and Ethics adopted by the FACP.  In addition, he is on the Board of the South Palm Beach County Collaborative Law Group (SPBCCLG-Choose Collaborative) in Boca Raton, serving as an Ambassador to the group on behalf of the FACP.  Jeff is also a member of the Collaborative Family Law Professionals (CFLP of South Florida) in Broward County, serving as a mentor, and he is a member of the Collaborative Family Law Institute (CFLI) in Miami-Dade County.  He regularly speaks to several Collaborative groups and provides articles on the Collaborative Process.

With the understanding that not all parties are candidates for the Collaborative Law Process, Jeff continues to handle family law litigation.  This includes divorce, paternity and other family law matters traditionally handled in Court.  As a Fellow in the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), he provides services to parents for the return of their children who have been removed from their habitual place of residence under the Hague Convention.  His firsthand experience and knowledge of other areas of law, such as real estate, estate work, corporate law, employment law and tort law, filter into his family law practice.  With his law partners at Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann, he can offer attorneys from the Firm who specialize in these specific areas to provide further assistance to his clients.

Jeff is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell and has consistently been listed in Florida Super Lawyers magazine and the South Florida Legal Guide for his work in the family law field.  He has lectured, and actively continues to speak, on behalf of the FACP, SPBCCLG, CFLP of South Florida, CFLI, IAFL, and the Family Law Section of The Florida Bar.

An Army Veteran of the Vietnam War, he was Honorably Discharged in 1970.  He has volunteered for the Veteran’s Project in Broward County and is helping to establish the Veteran’s Project through the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, providing Collaborative Professionals for the Project through SPBCCLG.
