David Shapiro – Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer

When you choose a Florida Bar Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, you are choosing an attorney whose qualifications in civil trial law have been vetted by peers. You are choosing an attorney who can call him or herself a specialist in this area of law, and who has gone the extra step to demonstrate their specialization.

To become a Florida Bar Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, the lawyer must meet a rigorous set of standards, namely:

  • The lawyer has practiced law for at least 5 years.
  • The lawyer has tried at least 15 contested civil cases, with some of them before a jury as the lead counsel.
  • The lawyer has been reviewed by peers.
  • The lawyer has been significantly involved in the civil trial law specialty, meaning 50 percent or more involved in the 3 years before applying.
  • The lawyer must have completed at least 50 hours of approved and required continuing legal education.
  • The lawyer must pass a rigorous written exam.

Our entire law firm benefits from the knowledge and experience of the Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyers at our practice. We fight aggressively for our clients, and we are proud to demonstrate our commitment to professionalism and expertise in the field of civil trial law.

 

The Supreme Court of Florida directed The Florida Bar to offer a Board Certification program for Florida Bar members. The program is designed to help the public make an informed decision when seeking and selecting a lawyer. To be certified, an attorney is required to have significant trial experience. Each certified lawyer must also have passed peer review by attorneys and judges who are familiar with them, and pass a written examination demonstrating knowledge, skills and proficiency in the field of civil trial law to justify the representation of special competence.

Less than 7% of all lawyers in Florida are Board Certified. A Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer is a specialist in Civil Trial Law. So the real question is why wouldn’t you hire a specialist to represent you on your civil case?

PERSONAL INJURY CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Bonnie Shelley

“It was indeed a blessed day when I met David Shapiro. After having talked with other attorneys, it became clear that, for all intents and purposes, they discounted what had happened to my elderly father. They simply saw him as too old, too frail and with not much hope of garnering sympathy or justice because of his age and condition. David was different. He listened and he believed my goal was to expose the wrongs my father endured. David took my case and he did this very thing. In addition, he won. This unexpected blessing helped in the care of my elderly mother.

Through the course of time, I have seen and experienced the kindness and generosity of character that is David Shapiro. Not only is he extremely capable and knowledgeable in the law, he wants to help people who need an advocate and who truly have experienced injury in all its forms.

David is a fine attorney, a hope to anyone seeking legal services. He may truly be one of the last of the good guys. God bless you, David.”

Jim Copeland

“My experiences with David Shapiro are similar to those of others who have commented. He has great knowledge of the law and consistently demonstrates professionalism and sensitivity. David is a caring and compassionate soul, a true advocate, who one can trust to effectively represent one’s case to achieve the desired outcome and he is quite successful in his efforts. I never hesitate to recommend him.”

Tess D.

“In late 2014, I retained David Shapiro to represent me in a rear end automobile accident in which I was injured. After our first meeting, I knew that he had vast experience in the practice of personal injury law and knew how to address my case. He took the time to understand all of the facts surrounding my case and continually called to give me updates on his progress. He ultimately negotiated a settlement in my favor and the amount was much more than I expected. David and his experienced staff were simply terrific. I was treated with respect and they were always responsive to questions and progress reports. Hire David! P.S. I am an attorney also, and wanted the best lawyer on this case. I’m so glad I found Mr. Shapiro.”

Michael Lisella

“Handled my accident case with utmost respect and professionalism. Showed he truly cared and did not beat around the bush. Would always recommend him to anyone i know that’s been hurt in any auto accident.”

Steven K.

“I always recommend David Shapiro for any personal injury needs. He never exaggerates, always gives me the straight scoop. These days finding an honest attorney with integrity is a huge asset. David has handled several matters for my family and I and I recommend him without hesitation to be your attorney as well.”
