I have been represented by Steven Shapiro multiple times. He has gone out of his way continually to not only represent me in a competent and excellent manner but has trusted me at times of extreme need and given me the benefit of doubt before representation.
He is a master at what he does and I couldn't recommend a better criminal defense attorney.

Steven Shapiro is an amazing attorney . He kept me very informed of all my options and made me feel good about the decision i chose to go with . I would definitely recommend him as a very trustworthy and knowledgeable attorney .

As others have stated, Steven is very direct. He never tells you what you want to hear; he tells you what you need to hear. His knowledge and experience was evident from the first call I had with him. I immediately knew what to expect and what I needed to do to help prepare for my defense.
Steven worked hard for me - even answering my questions while he was on vacation. This included communicating with law enforcement on my behalf until he returned to the office. He made himself available at all hours of the day - including text messages, email, and phone calls.
The many years Steven has practiced law, and the relationships he's built with others, is a huge advantage. I can't even begin to describe how it helped me. If you ever find yourself needing a criminal attorney, you could not find anyone better.
Thank you, Steven, for all you did for me and my family. We will forever be grateful.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
As an attorney I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Shapiro on a variety of cases. He consistently demonstrates superior understanding of often complex legal issues. He is an aggressive and highly effective advocate for his clients and maintains the highest ethical standards. Many of the cases I have worked with Mr. Shapiro on have required immediate action. Mr. Shapiro has always demonstrated the ability to resolve issues expeditiously and is responsive to both his clients and opposing counsel. Mr. Shapiro is among the best criminal defense lawyers in the state. I would recommend him unequivocally.
