Eric Shapiro is an attorney of the highest caliber. I have known Eric for approximately 6 years. During this time, I have not only worked as co-counsel with Eric and sent several clients to him, but I entrusted Eric to handle a family matter for us. He handled all cases (including our own) with foresight, knowledge, diligence, and care. Eric possesses excellent written and verbal skills, and his clients are lucky to have him. I highly endorse Eric's work.

I have known Mr. Shapiro for over 18 years and during that time I have watched him fight vigorously for his clients. Mr. Shapiro not only possesses the requisite legal skills to fully represent his clients, but he also provides the much needed personal attention to each and every client and their case. Mr. Shapiro is a formidable contender in the courtroom and knows how to get results. I without question endorse this lawyer.
