The practice of Family Law requires a certain empathy for the client who is perhaps going through one of the most stressful periods of his or her life. After more than 40 years of practice in divorce litigation, including enforcement and modifications, drafting prenuptial and post nuptial agreements, handling International parental kidnapping case, and handling paternity matters Jeff Wasserman has developed the skill to deal with the problems and needs of each client. In addition to experience, what separates him from many other attorneys in this area of practice is that he has firsthand experience and a working knowledge of other areas of law that filter into the family law practice, such as real estate, estate work, corporate law, employment law and tort law. In addition, with his current partners, he can provide attorneys from the Firm who are currently practicing in these specific areas and who can render assistance.
Jeff Wasserman has now expanded his practice to Collaborative Law, while maintaining his litigation practice.
Jeff Wasserman heads up the Family Law Practice Group of the Firm. He is a Fellow in the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), dealing primarily with international child abductions. He has been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell as an “AV” rated lawyer by his peers for many years; is recognized in Who’s Who; and has consistently been recognized as a “Super Lawyer” by Super Lawyer’s Magazine and as a “Top Lawyer” in the South Florida Legal Guide.
Jeff has served as Chair of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar and as Chair of the Family Law Rules Committee of the Florida Bar. He was the first Chair of the Supreme Court Family Law Forms Workshop Committee, of which he continues to be a member. He is also a past President of the Broward County Bar Association.
He has lectured on behalf of the IAML, the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar and the Florida Trial Lawyers Association.
An Army Veteran of the Vietnam War, he was Honorably Discharged in 1970.
