I was hurt in a car crash and a friend told me I needed to get in contact with the Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton law firm. I'm glad I took him up on his suggestion. I was represented by Virginia Beach injury lawyer Kevin Duffan. Kevin and his staff were courteous, efficient, responsive to my questions, and highly effective. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Kevin made sure I was always informed and even took the time to explain complex details related to my case and how they could affect the outcome.
While I'd choose Kevin to represent me 100 out of 100 times, I liked knowing that all members of his firm had my best interests in mind. My wife and I attended undergraduate school with Kevin and have kept in touch with him and his career ever since.
The most important thing about my treatment by this firm is that I was never pushed into making a decision, talked over with the use of legal-ease, or looked at as another opportunity for the firm to make money. I would absolutely refer any friend or family member to this firm.

I first met Kevin while working at the Commonwealth Attorney's office. I observed first-hand his work ethic and his command of the courtroom. Since then, I have seen Kevin earn his place as one of the most respected personal injury attorneys in the area. I endorse this attorney without reservation.
