I have had some legal run ins in the past and was charged with being under the influence. To be honest I was very scared and thought that I might be in some serious trouble. From the very first moment I contacted Mr. Shapiro I was put at ease for my case. Initially i did have to plea to a conviction but within a month Mr Shapiro got the conviction and all accompanying issues such as fines, 4th waiver, and probation dismissed!! I would recommend Mr Shapiro to anyone that has a criminal legal issue. He is extremely knowledgeable about all possible outcomes and returned all phone calls and emails promptly and I never had any fear or did I have to wait for such a fantastic outcome to my case. Thank you Mr Shapiro!!
Attorney Shapiro is skilled in his profession. He is a competent attorney and I believe he worked hard for the best outcome in my case(s). If, however, you are charged with a first time and are nearly as scared as I was, he may not be the best fit. Although he is a great attorney, I did not find him to be very compassionate - I was in a frenzy (how would this impact my employment? when can I clear up my record? etc.). I found him to be rather impatient with me and am not convinced that he was really concerned about me. Perhaps this was just a personality issue. Despite this, he is a great attorney, a nice guy and he will go to bat for you.
David is really a great lawyer .He made me understand the rules and regulations which i don't know being a foreigner in this country, he also helped me to consult with an immigration attorney and then he himself worked with him to understand to choose best option for me. I am really thankful to David for his great help , i will recommend David to my friends and co-workers as an expert in his subject matter and the away he approaches to resolve the case.
Mr. Shapiro is a very aggressive and knowledgeable attorney. He always keeps his client updated and responds all questions very quickly including weekends. He is also pretty smart and is extremely helpful in working things out. He resolved my case with a wonderful result and I highly recommend this amazing attorney!
David keeps his clients well informed about their case and responds very quickly to any questions or concerns you might have. He is a very professional and knowledgeable DUI lawyer. I would highly recommend him.
David Shapiro is one of the best lawyers I have had. I was charged with a DUI a year ago and he was able to get me the minimum sentence due to the circumstance. I was extremely shameful and felt awful that I was being charged as a criminal. When I walked into his office, he sat me down, understood how I must be feeling and assured me he was going to do everything in his power. He was very calm and collected asking me questions and gave me time to answer them, considering the state I was in. That case was handled the best it could have. Then recently, last Sept. I was pulled over for speeding and I had failed the breathalyzer test (as per my probation orders). I couldn't believe it! I went back to David and asked him to help me out with the case, he said no problem I'll take care of it. No need to worry. This was EXTREMELY reassuring due to the fact that I was leaving for Virginia for 3 months in about 2 weeks time. He was able to reassign my court date for me and go in to represent me and.....I couldn't believe it....David got BOTH the DUI probation violation AND the speeding ticket dismissed!!!! I don't know how, but I know it had something to do with having the right lawyer to represent me. If you are ever in either or both situations, I would HIGHLY recommend David Shapiro. You really wont find anyone as skilled in and out of the office and in court at such a fair price. His pricing was a flat rate, which for my finances was more than fair. Thank you SO much David!!!
Mr. Shapiro is the BEST attorney ever. I had numerous attorney's that I could have chosen but something made me call him and boy what a blessing that call was. Mr. Shapiro is one that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone that is in need of an excellent Criminal Defense Attorney. In my opinion no one can beat what he does. He is 100% in ALL categories of trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable, and keeping me informed on each and every single thing. Seriously, do not call any other attorney...CALL Mr. David Shapiro...he will make sure you are taken care of. He does not mess around and gets things done. He is worth every dime and then some for the expert services he delivers. He truly cares!
David was extremely helpful in letting me know everything that was happening with my case and responded immediately to any questions I may have had about the case. I defiantly recommend him.
Truthfully, Before I hired David Shapiro I was talking to few attorneys, as soon as I met with David I knew he was the man for the job, he does what he promises he will let you know how it is straight no sugar coating at all. He is by far the best attorney ever. Thanks David and god bless you.
David knows what he is doing. I got myself in some binds and he was firm with me but also showed some heart. He fought hard for me even when I kept making things worse. :)
