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."
