Help was found when we felt helpless. We found out that our son had been arrested for things that were not something we felt was anything he could ever have done. We called Steven Shapiro late at night and he answered some of our questions. We really had no idea what to do. Mr. Shapiro was helpful and made an effort to calm our fears by visiting with our son right away. While recognizing that sometimes people have to suffer the consequences of their actions, we also realize that without an advocate for our son in a very difficult situation, he could have spent many years in prison. Mr. Shapiro was a huge help to us in finding the necessary information and evaluations needed to best help our son. By having an attorney it was comforting to my son and to our family to know that we had someone on our side. We felt that Mr. Shapiro spent time with us and was always willing to answer our questions which was very helpful. We were even able to have him help another child that had some minor things to deal with. Because of his help we had a much better outcome than we would have otherwise. I would highly recommend Shapiro & Shapiro

I have been represented by Steven Shapiro multiple times. He has gone out of his way continually to not only represent me in a competent and excellent manner but has trusted me at times of extreme need and given me the benefit of doubt before representation.
He is a master at what he does and I couldn't recommend a better criminal defense attorney.

Steve Shapiro did an amazing job for me. He took my case and fought for me after two other attorneys told me to get screwed. He took time to understand my situation and found a way to get me the deal I wanted. I have had a lot of charges in my past and dealt with a lot of attorneys and Steve is at the top of them all. He called me to keep me updated and retuned my calls promptly. If your in trouble call Steve Shapiro. His game is on another level.

When I came to Mr. Shapiro, I had already fired a different attorney and was in search of someone a bit more aggressive who could better understand the urgency of my situation. I was charged with misdemeanor public intoxication and interference with an arresting officer. About a month later, I was accepted to medical school. The school wanted to know the outcome of my pending charges before deciding whether or not to rescind my offer of acceptance so, naturally, I was a nervous wreck. Even though I hired Mr. Shapiro almost six weeks after the initial charges were filed, he was able to get them totally resolved two weeks before my first attorney had even planned.
Mr. Shapiro worked with the prosecuting attorney from day one to try to work out a better set of charges that would be acceptable to the medical school. More importantly, he treated me with the utmost respect, professionalism, and compassion. I did not feel like a criminal as I had previously, but like a human who had made a mistake. He did what he could to be reassuring throughout the entire process.
The interference charge was ultimately dismissed, and the intoxication charge was dropped from a misdemeanor to an infraction. The infraction was then dismissed after completion of an assessment and a VERY minimal court fee. In the end, my record was more or less unscathed and my medical school acceptance offer stood. I don't anticipate ever needing Mr. Shapiro's services again, but I would WITHOUT A DOUBT refer my family and friends to him if they ever found themselves in similar situations.

As others have stated, Steven is very direct. He never tells you what you want to hear; he tells you what you need to hear. His knowledge and experience was evident from the first call I had with him. I immediately knew what to expect and what I needed to do to help prepare for my defense.
Steven worked hard for me - even answering my questions while he was on vacation. This included communicating with law enforcement on my behalf until he returned to the office. He made himself available at all hours of the day - including text messages, email, and phone calls.
The many years Steven has practiced law, and the relationships he's built with others, is a huge advantage. I can't even begin to describe how it helped me. If you ever find yourself needing a criminal attorney, you could not find anyone better.
Thank you, Steven, for all you did for me and my family. We will forever be grateful.

Steve Shapiro really saved my life. I was looking at a lengthy prison sentence and he worked tirelessly, fighting to help the judge understand that I could prove that I can be a productive member of society. He was very professional and never sugar coated the situation. I always knew what was going on and had as much hope as you can have going into a situation like I was in. I would recommend this man to anyone.

Mr. Shapiro represented me in a Class C Misdemeanor. As soon as he took over my case, the entire experience dramatically changed for the better. His experience and professional manner made this case so much easier. He was quick to respond and extend his help.

Mr. Shapiro was simply remarkable. I put myself into the absolute worst position possible by admitting to the offense in a recorded conversation with the Detective handling my case and Steve was still able to work his Magic. The charges were dismissed once Mr. Steve Shapiro took over my case. If you need help, you NEED Steve Shapiro and his office!! Overall the only words to describe both himself and his Staff is Truly Unbelievable. He was open to my calls not only during his office hours, but also with his time at home answering his cell phone everytime I called, he always kept me posted on how my case was being resolved and what the process was of it, his office staff was very friendly and easy to talk to, his knowledge about my case was perfect down to a Tee, he made my life easier going by coming up with ways to keep my mind off the case, and truth be told once he took over, my life went back to normal completely! Thank You So Much Steve!! You are Truly Unbelievable!!
