"David A. Shapiro, Board Certified in Estate Litigation, Probate, and Trust Law"
“Orange County Resident chooses Los Angeles Attorney David A. Shapiro” “Sometimes it takes an outsider who can see things much better. I hired David Shapiro because he was just that, outsider. Outside the three-ring circus of Orange County Trust Attorneys who just want to lead you down the path of rancorous litigation.” David only cares about the facts and how to effectively utilize those facts in preparation and negotiation to attain the best results for your case.” Knowledgeable A+ Great Communication A+ Responsiveness A+ Straight Forward A++ Great Listening Skills A++ Hardworking and Persevering A++ "Trusted Counsel for your Orange County Estate & Trust Litigation Needs” - T.

Easy to work with
When my father passed away he made my stepmother the trustee of his estate. Big mistake. Though I had been under the mistaken impression she was a decent and loving person, that turned out to be an illusion. David helped me right this wrong, and through mediation I received the estate my father had left to me and had his widow removed as trustee. David was a steadying influence throughout this process, he cared about my outcomes without letting his desire to win derail my goal of ending the conflict swiftly and fairly. I would unreservedly recommend David to anyone who needs help with an estate.

Top notch professional
I cannot begin to say enough great things about David Shapiro and his law practice. David helped me get through an estate matter from 3000 miles away. I'm in Michigan, the case was in LA. I spoke with 5 different lawyers about my matter, David was THE only one I felt comfortable with. David explained every step in the process, answered every and all questions I asked plus added input I had no idea about because of his experience. Being 3000 miles away I expected communication issues. Absolutely none. All phone calls, emails were handled same day by David not an associate. Top notch Professional. I truly believe his one and only goal is to benefit his clients. I hope I can find a lawyer like David here in Michigan. He has set the bar very high.

A great and committed lawyer
David is a great lawyer. Against the odds David managed to successfully secure the inheritance for our desperate client in Thailand who had almost given up hope to ever see her share in the US estate. I’m a German lawyer based in Thailand and helped our client to find a US attorney to represent her in the difficult probate procedure in the LA court. From the beginning David stood out from all the other lawyers we contacted by his clear and straight communication. He impressed me with his professionalism and commitment to help our client to obtain what she was entitled to. Our client does not speak English, so we depended on translators and sometimes difficult international phone conferences which David handled with admirable skill. But most importantly, David’s skills in court room changed our client’s life. David can be sure of her deeply felt gratitude.

Johnnie M. George Living Trust
Mr. Shapiro was a rare find and I cannot thank him enough. He possesses all the admirable qualities one expects in an attorney, he is personable yet very skillful at his profession. Quality was job one. The attorney-client relationship will long be remembered, but moreover an everlasting friendship was developed.

I had a good experience with David Shapiro
I contacted David Shapiro back in January of 2014 because I needed help with a problem involving my parent's Living Trust. He listened to all my concerns, looked over the documents, and offered to represent me. It was a very unpleasant family situation for me for reasons I can't go into, but once I had Mr. Shapiro representing me I felt significantly better. He provided rational analysis of what he felt would be the best way to proceed and his advice always seemed sound -- I was able to put my trust in his judgement. He was always gracious in our dealings and fortunately the case finally did come to a satisfying conclusion. I would recommend David Shapiro -- he was professional, capable and trustworthy.

If I could give more than 5 stars for Mr. Shapiro, I would.
I cannot thank Mr. Shapiro enough for the hard work he has put into my very complicated case. He is, hands down, the best trust litigator you can find on this planet. He will go above and beyond to protect you as a client, while still doing everything by the Law. Mr. Shapiro fights for every case as if it were his own; he will know you and everything about your case as if it were the back of his hand. On top of being a great attorney, he is a very down to earth and humble man. If you have any hesitation about using The Law Offices of David A. Shapiro, you can rest assured knowing that you will be in good hands.

Excellent Lawyer
I cannot recommend David enough! He helped me with some legal matters and couldn't have been smarter, nicer or more fair. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and is very easily accessible. Everything was explained to me in layman's terms and there was no "lawyer" talk or mumbo jumbo - I knew exactly what was happening at all times. In legal matters, it's very important to be kept in the loop and feel safe and that is exactly what Mr. Shapiro provided. If you need a lawyer, you will find no better one than David Shapiro. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
