Attorney Profile

As a partner with Shapiro, Croland, Reiser, Apfel & Di Iorio, LLP, in Hackensack, New Jersey, attorney Brian C. Martel focuses his practice exclusively on family and matrimonial law. Serving clients throughout Bergen and Morris counties, Mr. Martel uses his more than 13 years of legal experience to provide the highest level of representation to those facing legal challenges involving divorce, child custody and support, alimony, property division, domestic violence, and post-judgment modifications and enforcements.

A trained mediator, Mr. Martel strives to resolve his clients' disputes using negotiation, arbitration and collaborative techniques; however, he will not hesitate to fight aggressively for his clients' best interests in court when necessary. In all cases, Mr. Martel treats his clients with the compassion and respect they deserve to help them through difficult and emotionally trying situations.

After graduating from the University of Maryland in 1999, Mr. Martel attended Seton Hall University School of Law, where he obtained his law degree in 2003. The New Jersey State Bar Association admitted him to practice that same year, and the New York State Bar Association admitted him to practice in 2005. Additionally, the New Jersey Superior Court appointed him as an attorney-in-fact to offer testimony and provide assistance in high-conflict family law cases.

Fully committed to his practice, Mr. Martel is active in several professional legal organizations dedicated to family law. In addition to being a barrister for The Barry Croland Family Law American Inn of Court, he is a member of the family law sections of the American Bar Association, the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Bergen County Bar Association, the Essex County Bar Association and the Passaic County Bar Association.

Mr. Martel also volunteers as an early settlement panelist for Bergen County, and the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys named him as one of the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys Under 40 in 2014.
