I hired Mr. James Shappiro after doing some research online. Our conversations took place over the phone as he is in Chicago and I am in California. Mr. Shappiro helped with a case that was ordered by Cook County Circuit court back in 2015. I highly recommend his service. Mr. Shappiro and I have never met, all of our meetings took place over the phone, he always responded to email and messages and he made sure that I knew what was taking place each step of the way. I spoke to many other attorneys over the phone and Mr. Shappiro was the only attorney that provided me with the confidence that I knew he would be able to get the job done without my appearance in the court. In fact, he was so good he was able to get my case dropped in a very reasonable time frame, where other lawyers said it would take months. Mr. Shappiro understood my personal situation and I am grateful that I hired him. Again, I highly recommend his services.

Attorney Shapiro is an awesome criminal defense attorney to conduct business with. He was nothing but helpful from our first conversation to my trial hearing and never gave me a minute's trouble. He's a very down to earth person, it felt like I'd known him for years. Now I'll be conducting business with him for years to come.

I had 4 felonies and Judge Shapiro had only 3 days to work out a deal. In that limited amount of time he got the 4 felonies dropped to reckless conduct with no jail time and no conviction on my record. My other lawyer spent a year and almost twice the cost but could not get anything to keep this of my record. Judge Shapiro always answered my phone and texts quickly. He explained to my everything I should expect in the court appearance. Everything he told me was exactly right. He is a very honest lawyer that is not out just for the money. If you need an attorney who knows the law, who you can feel very comfortable with and really cares and listen to your needs then this is your man.
