Jeffrey P. Wasserman

Jeff Wasserman began practicing law 50 years ago and is proud to be an Accredited Collaborative Professional with the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals (FACP). He is currently Of Counsel to Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann, P.A. practicing collaborative law with the firm’s Family Law Group. Mr. Wasserman is a peacemaker, keeping his family law clients out of court in resolving their divorces.

The Collaborative Law Process is a client driven process. Rather than have the divorce controlled by the court, the control is in the hands of the clients with the guidance of their collaboratively trained attorneys and a team consisting of a mental health professional and a financial professional who act as neutrals in assisting in the resolution.  The Process is designed to provide families with the ability to move beyond the divorce in a positive relationship.  The goals of the clients take precedence over the law, which provides the clients with the ability to resolve their issues in a way that makes the most sense for them rather than following a more rigid legal based approach.  In addition to divorces, Mr. Wasserman also provides client services in negotiating and drafting Premarital, Post Nuptial and Cohabitation Agreements.

As a leader in this emerging area of law, he is an Accredited Collaborative Law Professional under FACP Standards, serves on the FACP Board of Directors and co-chairs the Governance 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.  Mr. Wasserman is also a member of the Collaborative Family Law Professionals of South Florida (CFLPSF) in Broward County, serving as a mentor, and he is a member of the Collaborative Family Law Institute (CFLI) in Miami-Dade County where he also serves as a mentor.  He regularly speaks to several Collaborative groups; is a trainer in Collaborative Law; and publishes articles on the Collaborative Process.

Mr. Wasserman serves on several committees of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) including the Hague Task Force Committee.  Additionally, as a Fellow in the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), he provides services to parents seeking the return of their children who have been taken or retained by the other parent, all 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.  He is also able to provide additional assistance to his clients by having other members of the Firm who specialize in different areas of law render their expertise for the benefit of his clients.

Mr. Wasserman is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has consistently been listed on the Florida Super Lawyers “Top Lawyers” list as well as the South Florida Legal Guide’s “Top Lawyer” list in the family law area.

Mr. Wasserman is a veteran of the Vietnam War, honorably discharged in 1970. He is a pro bono volunteer for the Veteran’s Project in Broward County.
