Shifrin's other clients include trustees of financial institutions and bankruptcy estates, software developers, government organizations, public enterprises, and real estate developers.

He also serves as court-appointed counsel to the Trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and heads the BakerHostetler Discovery Management team.



Haines and Shifrin met through an internet dating site, OkCupid, which is both rare and modern. The well-known news presenter admitted that she had joined an online dating service to find a suitable companion.

After she made her profile, Haines and the handsome lawyer quickly exchanged messages. During their first talk, Shifrin had no clue she was a journalist and a well-known television host.

The couple agreed to meet in person after six months of chatting on the dating site. Haines revealed that she fell hard and fast in love with Shifrin, several years younger than her. She described Shifrin as a "super cute" man.


The twosome also had a memorable and amusing engagement, much like their first conversation. Shifrin proposed to Haines at 6:30 in the morning. The lawyer said of his awkward proposal:

"So I literally got up, crawled out of bed in my pajamas, and got on one knee on the floor next to the bed, and proposed awkwardly and without much charm at all."

Shifrin said he apologized to Haine for proposing awkwardly and for not being able to give her a "better story." For her part, Haine remarked that his romantic gesture at the moment was unforgettable.


Haines, 37 at the time, married Shifrin in November 2014. The TV show presenter previously shared her views on getting married and pregnant in her late 30s, feeling that it was a smart choice.

She revealed that she did not want to marry at such a young age and did not want to settle down right away. Haines, a bold and practical careerwoman, expressed a need for someone to grow and evolve with her.


Haines has been realistic about marriage, indicating that it is not all rainbows and butterflies. For her, this kind of commitment is hard work. She has opened up about how she and her husband are a work in progress. She said:

"That was more important to me than anything. I found that in Max, and not because he all the sudden came along on a horse, but we had a common vision. I wanted my equal and someone that could match me in a shared vision, and that's what I found."


Haines said that she and her husband are mature enough to be upfront about their relationship and would work together to keep their marriage intact, such as by attending couples therapy. She believes that going to therapy with a partner is helpful for everyone.

In addition to facing criticism, Haines struggled mentally.

The power couple has been married for seven years and shares three beautiful children. Haines has been in love with her husband since tying the knot. They have had their share of challenges along the road, but they always know when to compromise and apologize.



Haines and her much-younger husband are incredible parents to their three children, Alec, Sandra, and Caleb. Alec, their oldest son, Alec was born in 2016, and Sandra, their daughter, in 2017. Caleb, their younger son, was born in 2019.

Haines faced challenges in parenthood, especially the criticism she endured for how she raised her children. Fortunately, Haines said her mother had reminded her that her motherhood journey was different than other moms and that she should not allow anybody to tell her what to do.


In addition to facing criticism, Haines struggled mentally. She already had a lot on her plate, but experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety made things much more difficult.

Haines, a working mother, has mixed emotions about being away from her children all day, but she is confident in her ability to be a good mother. Shifrin also supported her along her motherhood journey.


Despite all, "The Chase" co-host enjoys her time with her children. She expressed eagerness for the day when she and her children would be able to have honest conversations, including the option of her voicing her views.

The mom of three has expressed a desire for a larger family in the future—she wants to have ten children or more—but she now feels she cannot provide adequately for any more kids at this time.
