Rehana K.

I would recommend anyone who is going through a divorce to seek representation and advice from this firm. Mr. Shapiro, who is one of the attorneys at this firm provides detailed information and walks the client thru the process of divorce. He empowers the client with knowledge of their rights within the legal system and does not coerce his clients to make decisions without advising them in detail. My experience with this firm was very positive and I highly recommend Mr. Shapiro to anyone seeking legal advice.

David L.

David Shapiro is a wonderful attorney, who was able to successfully represent me in a very painful, ugly and stressful estate matter. He was always exceptionally professional and helpful, answering questions as soon as they came up, as well as doing a lot of required hand holding. Everyone at the firm was also wonderful to deal with. I recommend this firm and David Shapiro enthusiastically and completely without any caveats. You won’t do any better.
