5.0 stars 12 totalReview Steven Shapiro
Steve Shapiro has indeed been the best lawyer I have ever hired, is honest and to the point, he states the facts both to his client and in the court room. He gets the attention of the whole court room with his knowledge and assertiveness, two things a great lawyer should have in my opinion. He is fair and does not persuade his clients in one direction or the other.
I have hired Steve twice, the first time I still had a lot of issues, and I personalized a lot of things, I could say I was a bratty, one day I finally understood him, and ever since I have had nothing but respect for him!
The second time I hired Steve I was in rehab and unaware of the date I last needed to attend court, I knew my case may be dismissed, but had every intention of being there. Though I missed court that day, Steve was able to persuade the judge to still dismiss the charges. It could have gone bad for me and the judge could have issued a warrant. I owe him own for that!!! Thank you Steve, I have the up most respect for you, you are surely great at what you do!!!!
Your best resource when facing family legal problems. Steve Shapiro, with out exception is the first call you should make when you or your family are challenged with the stress, emotional turbulence and injustice which often accompanies charges from the criminal justice system. He is responsive, well informed, compassionate and fair. He clearly understands the nuances of criminal law and has established an excellent reputation within the legal system which enhances his ability to represent the best interest of his clients. It is not often that an attorney with a significant case load can offer the personal attention that Steve provides each of his clients. He comes with my highest recommendation.
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.
