I will always recommend Bill. He is the best. From the moment I met him he became a good friend. He represented my son as if he were his own. He truly cares about his clients and will do what ever he needs to get their case settled the way it should be. His staff is amazing. They make you feel right at home.
Bill Shapiro is my forever go to guy when I need the best to represent me or even just to get advise. In my book, he's not just the best attorney, he's a friend that will fight for you till the end. In the end he won't be considered just a friend, he will become family.
Thanks for everything Bill
Blessings always to you and yours always.

I have had my own CPA practice for 30 years. As my part of my profession, I have assisted my clients in civil, family and probate cases. During this process, I have met with dozens of attorneys both in and outside of court. On occasion, I have also been court-appointed as an accounting expert. Therefore, my review is based upon comparatives, as well as from my own personal experience in hiring Mr. William (Bill) Shapiro to represent me in my own case.
I, personally needed to engage an attorney related to a civil matter where I was named as one of the defendants. I knew I would have to select an attorney who would not be intimidated by opposing counsel, an overly aggressive woman attorney, who is well-known as being a bully (both in and outside of the courtroom). The attorney I needed to select to represent me would have to be able to maintain his composure in opposing this woman attorney, as her delivery is one of yelling, constant interruptions and talking over you. If my case were to end up in a jury trial, I needed a skillful and experienced attorney, one who possesses a methodical understanding of the law and how to work it in my favor. I also desired an attorney with a winning personality and charm who would come across as credible, sensible and ethical. Without blinking an eye, I thought of Mr. William Shapiro. He is extremely articulate, composed and classy. I knew he could maintain the “upper hand” in my case. I forewarned Bill about my experiences with this lady attorney’s intimidating posture. He did not seem to be concerned. Long story, short…to my relief, he quickly wrapped up my case in my favor. As expected, the lady attorney did yell; however, Mr. Shapiro was successful in taking command over the proceedings, ending with the lady attorney conceding. No jury trial needed. However, if a jury trial were so ordered, I have no doubt Bill Shapiro would have presented himself well in front of a judge and jury, as he is a very experienced, seasoned trial litigator.
There is no denying, Mr. Shapiro has all the components I wanted in a “super attorney.” His style and legal finesse is bar none to most attorneys, whose winning track record speaks volumes as to his effectiveness. I found Bill’s personality to be very warm and engaging. He listened carefully and thoroughly responded to each of my questions and concerns, leaving me feeling confident that I had made the right choice in selecting him as my attorney. From the very beginning, I felt very assured he would do a good job for me. Bill Shapiro exceeded my expectations and his fees were very reasonable.

Mr.Shapiro has been nothing but helpful with my case. He's been very nice and he's kept in contact throughout to his best abilities. He's answered any questions that I have clearly, I highly recommend him.

My name is Marian, I am a court reporter who owns a court reporting agency. My agency and I have been associated professionally with Mr. Shapiro and his law firm for over 35 years. I've personally consulted him countless times over those years for legal advice.
Mr. Shapiro is from the old school, where attention to the most minuscule legal detail or opportunity is NEVER missed. He, in my opinion, has a very sharp legal eye and mind combined with the perfect amount of aggressiveness.
I can honestly attest to this man's legal acumen. He is probably one of the best attorneys I have ever seen in action during the 35+ years I've had the pleasure of working with him.
Most importantly, though, I must attest to his high moral standards and the way he exercises, at all times, the proper etiquette and decorum.
Mr. Shapiro is a true legal scholar and a gentleman, and I believe this is the reason behind his high success rate.

In 2009 I lost my leg in a motorcycle accident. A friend of the family highly recommended Bill to review my case. From the first day I met Bill he was professional, understanding, and truly genuine. He wanted to do everything he could to help me with my personal injury claim. Over the course of 7 years there was not a day that I could not reach out to Bill and have him respond to my needs or concerns promptly. He stuck by me through a long, difficult case and never gave up hope. He fought hard to get what I deserved. Not only was Bill my attorney he became a great friend in the process. I highly recommend Bill to anyone who was told they do not have a case. Before giving up hope, call Bill to explore your options. I am confident that Bill will look over your case and he will be straightforward and honest with you about your options. Thank you Bill for everything you have done for me.

I am a court reporter of 22 years. I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Shapiro for about 20 of those. Mr. Shapiro is very dedicated to his profession and his practice. From a court reporter's viewpoint during depositions, Mr. Shapiro leaves no stone unturned. I've always been impressed with his advocacy for his clients, his preparedness, and his attention to detail with every case. He is always very record conscious and appreciates a reporter’s hard work which, in turn, helps to make our job that much easier. Mr. Shapiro is always a pleasure to work with.

On September 3rd, 2011, my wife was killed due to injuries suffered in a roll over accident after her car struck a concrete structure on the shoulder of the road.
I contacted the office of William Shapiro who reviewed the case and then decided that it had enough merit to take on
I have watched Mr. Shapiro and his team at work on this case. Although there were times my frustration grew to great heights, Mr. Shapiro and his team managed to maintain their professionalism and explain to me the step by step process.
This case went to jury trial in October of 2015. I watched Mr. Shapiro in action in front of a jury and a very good defense attorney.
In one word,, Mr. Shapiro was " MAGNIFICENT"
A a 3 day,trail the verdic came back in our favor ! The award. .1.3
From the moment you walk into his office, you are put at ease and know that this is the team you want in your corner.
Thank you Mr. Shapiro and your team.

I've worked in the legal field for almost 40 years. I've learned that even the best case can be lost. It's extremely important to find the right attorney and Bill is it. He's experienced, compassionate, energetic and driven to secure justice. He's exactly the attorney you want fighting for you, not against you. When an auto accident put me down for three months, I was too ill to function. I sought Bill's advice. He took the case and did all the work, leaving me with only one concern: to recover. Thank you, Bill, for the excellent work you did on my behalf. And Than You to your wonderful, caring staff!
