Review Eric Shapiro

  • John E.- Custidy Case

    5.0 stars

    Posted by John

    I had to file / sue for custody of my son from the mother who had taken him out of state. Mr Shapiro worked for all the rights as a father the law offers. We had three court appearances, including the final trail. In every appearance, Mr. Shapiro was very prepared. He knew the judges, and even more important, he knew the law. He seemed to always be a step ahead of the defense attorney. He was very strategic in dealing with them. And in the end, that made a difference to the Judge.

    He also knew correctly how other cases would be ruled on based on the statutes. I mean cases that were in front of us while we waited to be called.

    When we finally went to trail, there were about 9 things I had on my list that I wanted legal rights to and just personally wanted. He got me 8 of 9. And the only reason it wasn't all nine is because it wasn't something the court could have decided on legally. I got all the rights to my son, and we are now together.

    I was very impressed with him as a trail lawyer. He seemed to frustrate the defendants attorney throughout, and the judge even spoke highly of his efforts on my behalf.

    I would highly recommend hiring Eric as your attorney. If I every have any other issues, I'll be going back to him and his expertise.. Get him before he get too booked to take on your case. He's worth every penny spent, and beyond money, I will forever be indebted to him for everything he did for me and my son.

    Mr. Shapiro helped reduce city's unjust fee by half the amount - that's a big difference. Was not first time our company has worked with him. Would hire again (if needed).

    Eric Shapiro was recommended to me by a mutual friend and I was a little nervous at first but he more than reassured me. Eric made sure that we focused on the best case scenario for not only the kids but the pets as well. He was responsive and caring making sure I felt heard and that my ex wife's party felt respected.

    He made sure that I was well advised on the situation. I am a meticulous person making sure all the details are hammered out and he followed through. He met with me several times in person and this only reassured me more that he was the right choice. Not only was his council informative but also humorous at times making the situation less tense.

    The results could not have been better we are in the best situation after the divorce and the kids are in a stable place. There is no "winning" with divorce but I don't think I could have asked for a better situation. I appreciate all his hard work but you should take him on yourself and see the results.

    Eric was my attorney in my divorce in 2010. Not only was he respectful to my ex-husband and his attorney, but he guided me to think clearly in order to make my future "easier" as my ex and I had a young child together. He explained the importance of staying level headed and keeping my eye on the prize, which was a fair life for our son.
    Eric also represented me a few years later in a family case involving my ex-husband. I thought he was a saint in the first case, but this case he truly fought for my son. No matter how mad I was or jaded I came across, he was able to bring me back down to earth in a very calm and comforting manner.
    Don't get me wrong, Eric Shapiro is tough as nails - but when it came down to the one person he really represented, it was my son. He educated and enlightened me in both of my cases. It sucks that it didn't work out with my ex-husband and we are friends today; but I am so blessed Eric represented me.
    Funny thing, whenever we were in court every single attorney in the courthouse knew who he was and gave him immense respect. Even my ex-husband's attorney. He is respected among his peers and has great class.
    If you are looking for an attorney who is wise, fair, smart, and will not take advantage of you - Mr. Shapiro is your guy. He truly cares about family and the future of children in divorce cases.

    i hired him for my case last summer. It was 8 months of long work, but he has helped me get through all the paperwork, advised me for the next step, including multiple court appearances.

    I could see he has multiple clients and he was very busy. But in reasonable amount of time I did get response back for my questions.

    I think, divorce case is not win or lose. It is all about compromise and making it official and respecting the rule, other party and agreement which both parties have signed on. So I don't think I won the case; I don't have to, but I do think I picked right lawyer for my problem. He has generated goo settlement agreement we both could work on.

    he suddenly became unresponsive to my inquiry, and I had to call/email numerous times to get my case moving forward. I do not recommend.
    Also, QDRO prepared by him (I paid over $2000 for this portion) was rejected. Now he will spend another time in reviewing this. This person is basically not capable.

    Don't hire him. He is only nice and responsive to you first few weeks.

    Eric Shapiro’s response: “Quite honestly, I have no idea who posted this review. We always strive to provide timely and effective service and a review of our files can find no instance of a QDRO being rejected after being paid $2000+ dollars. Further, any QDRO that may be rejected would always be amended and refiled with the Court.”

    Eric got me full custody of my kids, spousal support that gave me a chance to get on my feet, and held my ex's attorney accountable for keeping the division of our stuff fair. He was honest and professional. He worked with me to make the payments doable because he understands that attorney's fees are a "necessarily evil." He helped me keep my focus on my kids and was compassionate when I needed compassion and firm when I needed someone to keep me focused on the important stuff. I had his cell phone and he returned calls at all times of day and night, weekends, etc.... I have sent a couple friends to him since and they both had similar experiences. Eric is a wonderful attorney.

    I was lazy and searched Dunwoody divorce lawyer and he is one of the first searches. He was nice for the phone consultation but after I paid his retainer; he was gone. He lost me custody of my children. Please look at his Georgia bar records because they are horrible. take the time to find a good lawyer regardless of where the location is. Making a mistake will cost you time and money.

  • This attorney abandoned my case.

    I originally came to Eric Shapiro because I owned stock in a business that did not pay me my earnings for several years, after a sizable investment. I asked him to file a complaint so my case could be brought to trial, if necessary because this company owed me thousands of dollars. The attorney representing the company sent an email to him suggesting they may be interested in a settlement. No deal was made on a settlement, and we later had a hearing set that I thought would breathe life into this case. About two months later, I discovered that Mr. Shapiro had abandoned my case by failing to show up at the hearing, and he didn't return my numerous calls until I threatened to notify the GA Bar.
