Heather Shulman
Attorney & Mediator

Heather currently dedicates her law practice to out-of-court dispute resolution. She resolves complex matrimonial and family law matters by way of traditional negotiation, mediation, and Collaborative Law. As part of her practice, she also negotiates and drafts prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Having extensive experience as a mediator, Heather has been selected for inclusion on the New York County Supreme Court’s Roster of Matrimonial Mediators and regularly provides consulting attorney services to clients proceeding through the mediation process with an outside mediator.

Whether serving as an attorney or mediator, Heather has been described as thorough, efficient, and creative—especially in working through sophisticated financial issues and tailored parenting arrangements. Without losing sight of family dynamics, she strives to achieve favorable results for her clients that meet their unique goals.

Heather has been formally trained in mediation through the Center for Understanding in Conflict and in Collaborative Law through the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals. She has been honored by Super Lawyers for the last five years through selection to its Rising Stars list.

Heather graduated from Fordham University School of Law and received her undergraduate degree magna cum laude with honors from Muhlenberg College.
