Warshaw Burstein, LLP
Alexis L. Cirel is a partner in our Matrimonial and Family Law Group.
In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Cirel is a recognized leader in the quickly evolving area of reproductive family law. She was instrumental in the recent passage of the Child-Parent Security Act, legislation that legalizes gestational surrogacy in New York and ensures protections for New York families formed through the use of assisted reproduction, including being appointed to the Campaign Leadership Committee of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s efforts to pass the law.
Ms. Cirel is deeply committed to providing compassionate legal advice to all clients - whether they are going through a marriage dissolution or embarking on an exciting but complicated journey to building a family through third party assisted reproduction arrangements.
Alexis prides herself on being a passionate advocate and counselor who applies her technical and substantive litigation skills both effectively and empathetically.
Prior to joining the firm Alexis was a partner at a premier boutique matrimonial firm. Prior to that she was a senior litigation associate at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP. She left the corporate world in order to focus her talents and experience exclusively on the practice of family law, and to pursue her personal and professional commitment to the human element of client-focused advocacy.
