Outstanding Attorney - Excellent Results!!
In late May 2022, I was issued numerous motor vehicle summonses in the borough of Stratford NJ. Some of the offenses carried a mandatory suspension of driving privileges of ninety (90) days. I consulted and subsequently retained Ms. Shapiro and immediately felt confident after my initial consultation in which she explained that the State would have a difficult time proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt. After approximately an hour of discussing the circumstances of the traffic stop with the Municipal Prosecutor all the summonses were dismissed. Ms. Shapiro was a true professional and kept me informed throughout the entire process.

Excellent Attorney. Excellent outcome.
I retained Ms. Shapiro for a DUI charge after a friend strongly recommended her. During our first consultation, she was calming, non-judgmental, and no-nonsense. She was honest about potential outcomes while still committed to pursuing a best case scenario for me. My case came with some complications due to a breathalyzer refusal, but Ms. Shapiro developed a strategy to work around that and was meticulous in gathering materials to pursue this strategy. She was always quick to respond to a call or text to calm me down or inform me of any development. In the end, she got me a result that was even better than I could have hoped for. Worth every dime. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in a similar situation or for any criminal matter.

Beyond a professional & highly recommendable
I was referred to ashley by a colleague of mine who went through a very similar case of use of paraphernalia and marijuana , and with my particular circumstances, Ashley not only went above and beyond my expectations but surpassed them and we finished my case , I was left with an outcome that was far beyond what I truly wished for my self and I couldn’t be more thankful I came across Ashley and her services. I not only would highly recommend her but will speak very highly of her services for months to come.

Wonderful (Philly DUI)
Ashley represented me in a DUI case in Philadelphia. My father's a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and she came highly recommended by a colleague of his. From the very beginning, Ashley was meticulous. She was a great listener, sympathetic and non-judgemental. She was very professional but also extremely accessible via phone and email anytime I needed her. She communicated the process well and kept my nerves at bay. I never doubted she was doing everything in her power to get me the best deal possible. I qualified for ARD and she was still able to knock 6 months off of my probation. Also, as young adult myself, it was nice to have someone close-ish to my age that was fun and cool, but also very hardworking. I hope I never have to hire Ashley again, but would in a heartbeat.

"Dismissed, Without Prejudice!"
Quick summary, I was at the beach and received with a serious charge of "unlawful taking by conveyance," that could have long term negative implications. Despite my anger of the frivolous charge and general human rights violation via unwarranted fining for profit for the beach towns, I had to resolve the matter. I was referred to Ashley by a friend, and I am so glad I hired her. From the first email to the last goodbye, she was nothing short of extraordinary! Why, first I'm sure when you reach out to an attorney there is trepidation. She immediately responded to let me know "she will help." Secondly, Ashley called or responded thru email when she said. Never making excuses. Third, she followed up and responded when I had follow up questions/concerns. Fourth, she was not pompous and condescending. Fifth, Ashley laid out my options and let me decide how to proceed with possible outcomes. Finally, Ashley delivered results, which I especially liked. "Dismissed, without Prejudice!" That's the only result I wanted, expected and communicated! I'd hire again and absolutely recommend to friends and family needing legal services in PA or NJ. Well Done!

Strongly recommended
Since hiring Ms. Shapiro I've never looked back. After our first meeting I felt well educated regarding my unfortunate situation and all of my questions were fully answered. In the several weeks of working with Ms. Shapiro she made me feel as if I was her number one priority. She's intelligent, non judgmental, and hard working which made for a very successful outcome. I know I was able to remain calm and learn from my mistakes because of Ms. Shapiro's counsel.

BETTER THAN THE BEST!!! 5 STAR DEFENSE
An amazing professional with a very sharp mind. She gave my son a 2nd chance, a do-over if you will. I cannot GLORIFY this woman enough. She is the best of the best. No other description. Good lawyers are expensive but damn are they worth it! Thank you Ashley Eve Shapiro! You are AMAZING. In life everyone makes a mistake and I really feel that how the first mistake is handled, makes all of the difference in the world. Everyone should be able to erase the mistakes of their youth. Thank you so much for giving my son that opportunity.

Ms. Shapiro is the best young criminal defense lawyer in Phila. and NJ
Ms. Shapiro has done pro-bono work for my group for several years. I would recommend her for anyone who needs a criminal defense lawyer, and so would everyone in the group. She is intelligent, perceptive, has always listened to what we have to say and what we think we need, and then adds her own inimitable style of getting to the point, and getting the job done! I find her very capable and forthright, and I would take her advice, and do. She has been a great lawyer for us, and we trust her judgement and expertise.

Ashley Eve Shapiro and Leonard D. Biddison Best of the Best
I went on vacation down the Jersey Shore, and within three days, was in jail with a $25,000 cash bail. Now I won't go into specifics on the how or why other than I felt discouraged, in a state of disbelief, and was feeling like I might handle what I call, "bad luck" in a not so constructive way. Through some mutual friends I was able to retain Ashley E. Shapiro and Leonard D. Biddison. Ashley worked with the NJ D.A. to come to a deal that took multiple felonies out of the picture and I ended up with one felony, which, I believe, at the end of the day, that all parties were content with the outcome. Without the help of Ashley Shapiro and Leonard D. Biddison, I would have been so lost on how to make my short term and then my long term goals with the constant unknown and the feeling instability due to my ignorance of the whole NJ process. Ashley with above and beyond professionalism was able to give me a plan. Once I did my very easy obligations she, through constant contact and reassurance, somehow gave me stability and a positive outlook, which my personality needs to keep moving. She was always a phone call away, forgiving, knowledgeable, a natural teacher in regards to explaining the case, personable, and always made time for me. She also did top notch work, and easily along with Leonard D. Biddison would be the #1 recommendation to any friend or colleague in need of an excellent lawyer. An easy 5/5 and an easy first recommendation. She single handedly changed the outlook of my immediate to potentially longterm future and for that, I owe a lot more than this review. Thanks again Ashley for all you did and continue to do.

very bossy, stubborn, and didnt do the wishes of her client
She did not listen to me from day one. She constantly cut me off and I dont think she let me get in a full sentence. She supposedly represented me for a contempt charge. I couldnt be any clearer that I wanted to go to trial. She would not. She did not do the wishes of her client. She proceeded to boast about the deal she got me when it was exactly what the previous lawyer mentioned to me. When we went to court, I had a bad feeling and wanted to rescind my plea deal. Ms Shapiro said if I rescinded the plea, she would walk out of the courthouse immediately leaving me without representation. She was often rude and abrupt. Also, BEFORE we went into the courtroom, she tried to get me to sign papers saying I didnt want to appeal. I never had that happen before. Usually, you hear the sentence and decide whether you want to appeal or not. I questioned her why I was signing papers before we got into court and that I was uncomfortable doing so and she got combative. My wife witnessed the whole thing. I would never hire her again. EVER!!!
