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.

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 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.
