I have worked with Bernis Shapiro in both an official public capacity and as a personal estate attorney. She is extremely competent and works with incredible diligence in the interest of her clients. She is especially well-versed in real estate, financing, contracts, public and municipal law, and estate planning. Based upon years of personal experience with her in her capacity as an attorney, I recommend her without reservation.
