    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.
