I have known Rick for a number of years through our mutual involvment in the American Association for Justice's Railroad Law Section, a national organization composed of attorneys representing injured railroad workers and their families. I have had the honor of co-presenting a legal seminar to that organization with Rick and we have shared information and ideas on numerous occassions over the years. I have found Rick's knowledge and insight extremely helpful and I consider Rick to be one of the top railroad/FELA attorneys in the Eastern United States.
I endorse this lawyer. Rick Shapiro is one of the leading litigators in his region, if not the country. Rick and I first got to know each other through the American Association for Justice and Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys organization were he has been an active and contributing member for years. Later, Rick's firm associated with our firm in the New Orleans Metro Area to act as co-counsel in a Louisiana railroad injury case under FELA. The case went to trial in August of 2011 where I was able to observe Rick's diligence and competence first hand, and the trial resulted in a verdict over 1.5 million dollars. Highly prepared, and always motivated to work his tail off for the client are the best way to describe Rick! I hope I can work with him again soon!
I endorse this lawyer. Rick and I have been friends and colleagues for 30 years. For many years, we worked together and I was continually impressed by Rick's dedication to his personal injury clients and their cases. He always gives 100% and as a result, he has had tremendous success in obtaining significant settlements and verdicts for his personal injury clients. Recently, Rick obtained a multimillion dollar verdict in a railroad/FELA personal injury case involving occupational exposure to radioactive materials. He has also served as designated counsel to a major rail union, a public recognition of his expertise in FELA law. Rick is very active in trial lawyer organizations and has lectured other personal injury lawyers on trial practice and tactics.
I've known Rick for many years. He is a terrific personal injury and maritime attorney. I would highly recommend that you talk to him first if you think you may have a case.
Rick is one of the best lawyers I know. He has a tireless work ethic and a knack for thinking out of the box. He also has a sterling reputation in the legal community. He is recognized as a Virginia "Super Lawyer" and one of the "Best Lawyers in America" by U.S. News & World Report. He is a fantastic attorney.
I endorse this lawyer. Rick and I represented a mutual client in a matter where he handled the personal injury/product liability claim and I handled the workers' compensation claim. Rick achieved excellent settlement results in the personal injury/product liability case, and he was careful to work closely with me with respect to the workers' compensation lien to assure protection of the ongoing workers' compensation claim. I have since referred other clients to Rick for similar assistance, and will continue to do so in the future for his quality work, as well as his pleasant, cooperative demeanor.
I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked with Rick on cases in the past and he is responsive and knowledgable as well as timely in responding to matters of urgency. I highly recommend Michael for any consideration of legal services.
I endorse this lawyer's work. I've know Rick professionally for over 10 years, and have sent him cases in Virginia. Rick is very thorough, aggressive and competent. I strongly recommend him for any personal injury, or to refer him a case if you're a lawyer.
Richard and his firm are well-known in eastern NC and VA for their professionalism and tireless advocacy on behalf of their clients!
I was co-counsel with Mr. Shapiro on a case under the Federal Employers' Liability Act. I worked with him on all aspects of the case. He was lead counsel in obtaining a very favorable resolution of the matter at a difficult mediation. I would endorse Mr. Shapiro in any litigation matter.
