I found myself in an unfortunate encounter with law enforcement. Despite very obvious evidence supporting my innocence, I suddenly found myself facing very serious charges, something that had never happened to me before. I was scared, stressed, and depressed about my future. However, I knew I could fight with an attorney. After interviewing several attorneys I settled on Mr. Shapiro for several reasons: 1.) he has an excellent track record (nearly every single yelp, avvo, and google review he has is positive, which is not the case for many attorneys) 2.) He and his staff are non-judgmental. Despite not having all the facts, some attorneys I met with regarding my case were very dismissive and condescending, which undermined my confidence in their ability to represent me effectively. However, Mr. Shapiro (and David M), were focused on how to defend my case, reserving judgment until they had the facts in place. 3.) fair pricing- some attorneys quoted me more than $1000 what Mr. Shapiro quoted. 4.) Most importantly he gets results. No charges were filed in my case and I never had to go to court! In summary, I would highly recommend Mr. Shapiro. From my experience he is a quality attorney who tries to obtain the most favorable results for his clients. He was always very responsive to my inquiries (never took more than a day to respond) and he is a straight shooter that will not make promises he cannot keep. I highly recommend Mr. Shapiro for any criminal defense matters. He saved my life and I am confident he can save yours too.

David did everything for me and I didn't have to attend court at all. I was out of town for the duration of the case and everything was taken care of on my behalf. He kept everything very simple for me and was always reached easily by email.

A few months ago I made a stupid mistake and found myself charged with a misdemeanor. I contacted David Shapiro and received a response right away with there summary review of the case and approach. Others did not even get back to me.
Through the process, I was kept informed and told not to worry. After charges were filed, I met with David again to discuss what kind of options we had for the deal we wanted to propose although he still was going for a dismissal. After the first hearing, david called me to tell me the good news....the charges were dismissed with only a minor note on an existing DUI probation case. What a relief and I have never had such great service and communication from an Attorney before. Thanks David!!

David succeeded in getting my DUI charges dismissed in what began as an unpromising and challenging situation. He understood my terms and entertained all of my off-the-wall questions in a professional, prompt, and helpful manner. I felt such a weight lift from my chest when going into his office and having him lay out the reality for me, he has confidence in the proposed outcome but stays realistic – the other office staff I interacted with were also fantastic. David understood the terms I was willing to negotiate on and used those to attain what we both wanted from the case. Moreover, he is not one of the jail-mail or mass-communication lawyers, I found him through his online presence (Quora, here, Google), which is refreshingly up-to-date.
Thank you so much!

David was professional, reliable, responsive, and made me feel at ease throughout the duration of my case. He explained procedures and documents to make sure I understood them clearly. David is trustworthy and truly cares about people that seek his help.

David Shapiro is an outstanding attorney and helped me successfully navigate one of the most chaotic events in my life. Earlier this year I crashed my vehicle while under the influence and was initially charged with a DUI after recording a .132 BAC at the scene of the accident (followed by .091 BAC at the local jail). Given this was the first time I had ever been arrested or charged with any crime, I had no idea how the process worked and what needed to be done. I interviewed a number of attorneys over the following weeks and decided to hire David, which proved to be the best decision I could have made under challenging circumstances. From the start David and his staff were courteous, compassionate and attentive as they walked me though the entire process step by step. It was evident that David genuinely cared about the outcome of my case as he meticulously reviewed all the details from the incident. He was also very communicative during the process and quickly responded to all of my questions as well as clearly explained the things that needed to be done from my end (which was not much as he and his staff handled virtually everything). David’s hard work and determination ultimately led to the best outcome I could have hoped for as my charges were reduced to a Wet Reckless and the conditions of my probation were minimal. David Shapiro is an intelligent, aggressive, and empathetic attorney who will do everything in his power to deliver results. He has the experience, key relationships, and necessary drive to successfully fight on behalf of his clients and, in my case, never over-promised but definitely over-delivered. Also, the rate he charged was reasonable compared to other attorneys I interviewed and he demonstrated flexibility in developing a payment plan that I could afford. I’m confident that I made the correct choice in securing David as my legal representative and would recommend him to anyone facing similar charges. In fact, he has also represented two other people I know who were charged with a DUI and achieved positive results for both of them as well.

We found ourselves in a tough situation with our child facing a strike felony with a sentence of up to 7 years. I made several calls to find an attorney we were comfortable with but had not made a decision due to not really knowing what was to come and how fast the initial court date was scheduled from the time of arrest. We went to the first court date with a public defender and later received a call from Mr. Shapiro's office to ask how things had gone (I had mentioned our court date the first time I called their office). When I received that call, I had plenty of questions that were answered without rush. We ended up scheduling a time to meet to discuss the case. We found out that Juvenile cases highly differ from adult cases when it comes to how they are handled, decision making, trial etc. We always felt comfortable, he worked with us on legal fees and was always very responsive whether it be emails or phone calls. We never felt brushed off. Our child was released, placed on probation and given the opportunity to have the record sealed after successful completion. We really feel that Mr. Shapiro truly cares about his clients and I would highly recommend him to anyone facing legal issues.

David will work hard for you, and keep you informed. Unfortunately, I have had to use lawyers in the past who were not very open about how they were handling the case. Fortunately, David Shapiro provided a pleasant experience throughout my case. David is open, knowledgeable, works hard. Every time I was in the courtroom it put me at ease knowing I had a great legal expert on my side!

David was quick to the point, agressive and helpful. My DUI case was pretty bad considering it was an accident but he still able to get me minimum consequences that I was more than happy with. He was quick with a reply for any questions and concerns I had and I had a lot! Glad I made the choice to spend the extra cash on an expierenced lawyer. Hopefully I never need him again but if I do I know I can trust him. Thanks for everything David.
