Jeffrey Aronsky - Attorney at Law
As a fellow personal injury attorney, I have had only great experiences working with Cliff Shapiro. He is a wealth of knowledge and a leader in our field. His insight, intellect, and thoroughness are unmatched. He leaves no stone unturned; is aggresive, but respectful in his approach and genuinely cares for his clientele. Cliff is an ethical model for attorneys everywhere and I highly recommend him and his firm.

I would highly endorse Cliff Shapiro and his firm to anyone in need of a Personal Injury law firm for themselves or their clients. Cliff is a very nice person, an excellent attorney, and great to work with. Most importantly, he and his firm have gotten excellent results for all clients that I have referred—they are truly a top notch office.

Rude
Rather than actually listen, he was abrupt on initial phone consult and hung up before the conversation was even over. Waste of time. His company's website states they handle property damage, but they do not. Plenty of other attorneys out there; look elsewhere!
