At a time in my life when I was most scared and in a lot of legal trouble, Todd was an outstanding choice for my legal representation. From the outset, he was honest and upfront about what I was facing which I very much appreciated. He helped to prepare me for the upcoming months--not just as to what would happen in the courtroom but what to be braced for emotionally and mentally as that time approached. From the beginning, I felt comfortable with Todd and as though I could feel free to ask any questions. He explained things to me and kept me in the loop and up to date at all times. I never questioned that he had my back. Truly, Todd made me feel as though my case was more than just a job to him--I felt as though he truly did want to help. He showed very genuine concern for me on many occasions which meant more than I could say. I would recommend Todd in a heartbeat to anyone facing a tough legal road ahead of them. I 100% believe you could not go wrong hiring Todd as your legal representation. I know, without a doubt, during my day in court, there is no other attorney I would have rather had sitting next to and representing me than Todd Shapiro.

I hired the Shapiro Law Firm to represent me in a very serious matter involving criminal charges as well as access to my children. I was looking at the possibility of a long prison term and my parental rights being terminated. Howard and Todd Shapiro got my bail lowered to a fraction of what it was set at originally. They found the best possible scientific expert as well as experts in other areas for the trail, picked the jury with the help of a jury consultant and did an outstanding job connecting with the jury ,with a favorable outcome during the trial. Todd was very through during the trial and connected with the Jury in an excellent manner.
Rest of the staff like the paralegals were great too. Their billing was very accurate - never had to dispute any item on their invoice.
All in all Todd Shapiro is a great and well respected attorney in the court system & I would recommend Todd and The Shapiro Law firm to anyone that requires legal representation in the area of criminal defense as well as legal matters that involve CPS.

Unfortunately, I had need for the services of a really good criminal attorney a few years ago. With no prior criminal record, I had fallen prey to alcoholism and racked up THREE DUI charges in 10 months. I thought I was done for - professionally, legally and personally. I felt tremendous despair and lack of hope.
Fortunately, I had heard about the Shapiro law firm. I engaged (and reengaged) Todd's services. In the process, Todd did TWO amazing things for me, neither of which I can adequately express enough thanks for.
When we were facing the third charge, he strongly encouraged me to seek medical help because, legal consequences aside, he knew from experience that something was really wrong. And he was, of course, right. So I went to in-patient treatment. A cynic might suggest that this was simply to build a better legal case. No doubt that was part of it, but that still does not lessen it's value. Yet, in knowing people well, I could also sense a level of personal compassion in the suggestion that went beyond the final outcome of the case. My life was dramatically changed as a result of that and I am walking free from addiction today.
Secondly, Todd worked every imaginable avenue to pull a proverbial rabbit out of the legal hat. I had plead guilty to the first two charges because they were so overwhelmingly clear. I did not WANT to fight them - I wanted an extremely good plea bargain instead - which Todd got! So now we were looking at a potential felony conviction on this third. It settled as a first time class-B misdemeanor!! I am still a bit stunned when I consider it, though that happened nearly two years ago. A lot of things went in to that final outcome, certainly including my rehabilitation stay. Yet, in my greatest optimism, I did not envision that kind of final outcome! To this day it strikes me as near miraculous. So I am also walking free today in a literal sense.
Free from addiction and free from jail! I cannot IMAGINE another lawyer who could have done all this for me. Todd's deep experience, his unrivaled network and his just plain brilliant "street smarts" make him an attorney unequaled in my estimation.
God forbid, but if I were EVER in criminal trouble again, Todd is the first and only attorney I would want to go to. He is simply that good!

Todd receives my highest recommendation as a criminal defense attorney. What sets Todd apart is his transparency, responsiveness and ability to produce results. About a year ago, I faced daunting legal ramifications due to a DWI charge. When I met with Todd for the first time, I immediately knew that he was the right attorney to hire because he earned my trust; rather than telling me what I wanted to hear, he assessed the facts of my case and the surrounding circumstances and outlined the possible outcomes with brutal honesty. As promised, Todd is also available for and responsive to his clients. I have worked with attorneys in the past who were responsive before I paid them and then were extremely difficult to reach after payments for services were made. Todd remained true to his word - anytime I called, emailed or sent a text message, he responded within a two-hour time frame and I always knew where my case stood. Finally, Todd is tenured in the legal community and he was able to settle my case with a better outcome than I expected. If you find yourself in a situation with the possibility of life-altering consequences, Todd is the attorney you can trust!

Todd was trustworthy and responsive when we had questions. He was reliable when it came to communicating all of our information to the county law office and effective in presenting our case to the judge. Overall, we are glad we had him on our side and are pleased with the fairness of the outcome.

Mr. Todd Shapiro was very sharp during the course of his contract with us. He is well rehearsed and practical in his actions towards prosecutors. He is a man of his word and does whatever it takes to get answers.

Todd Shapiro came highly recommended and I now know why. When facing charges for a third DWI, he listened to me and walked me through the options that may occur. He was straight forward and although he was going to try and fight for the drug court program and probation I wanted, he did not give me false hope and let me know prison time was likely. He thoroughly answered any questions I had at any moment and never made me feel small. He answered our phone calls 24 hours a day and was able to help in whatever way I needed. I believe that he was compassionate to my circumstances and understood my honesty and sincerity to want rehabilitation through the felony drug court program and he was able to work that in a deal for me. I am about to complete that program and continue with probation for many years, which is a blessing. Rather than spending months in prison, I have been able to accrue over a year of sobriety and be a mom, wife, and honest citizen. I am forever grateful to Mr. Shapiro.
