Dan Shapiro saved my life. If it weren't for Dan Shapiro I could be in a world of hurt right now. Although I was factually innocent, serious charges had been brought against me by someone seeking to use the legal system to retaliate. And even though I did not commit the crime that I was accused of, my defense wasn't perfect. Certain factors gave the appearence that the crime could have possibly happened. Enough so, that the District Attorney's Office was pursuing a conviction. The Police officer who arrested me had decided that I was guilty or deserved punishment even though I was innocent and and made the scenario worse by lying in his police report to make me look worse.
I was truly crushed as a human being, my family and loved ones were as well, very distraught over the entire event. My life had never been worse than it was at this point.
All of this is over now thanks to Dan. The case has been completely dismissed.
The difference between Dan and other lawyers from what I can tell is this.
1) Dan really cares about his clients. Dan really cares about other people and genuinely wants to help. When Dan decides that he will accept you as a client, he does everything he can to ensure the best result he can get for your case.
2) Dan gets to the root of the Law, stripping away the confusions and complexities which other lawyers bog themselves down in.
3) Dan has a good attitude, is intelligent and is very professional. Judges, Prosecuting Attorney's and Jury's cant help but to like Dan and give credence to what he has to say in the Courtroom. Which might make a difference in how they view your case.
If you want a Lawyer who will really care about your case and do everything he can within the Law to get you the best outcome possible, Dan is the man.

Dan has been there for my husband and I when he was very needed.
He is tenacious and will not give up on a case that still has any amount of breath in it. I have worked with other attorneys in the past and I have found Dan to be the best!

Mr. Shapiro has represented me in a variet of legal matters. His attention to the smallest of details and his plain talk made me extremely comfortable. Just knowing he would handle everything in a timely and forth-right manner made it easy to sleep at night without worry. He kept me up to date without my needing to make numerous calls to his office. I have and will continue to use Mr. Shapiro whenever I need an attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Shapiro is a hard hitting, dedicated and relentless advocate in the pursuit of justice. He treats every client with respect and will not stop until he gets the very best possible result for his client. If you have a legal problem in Riverside call Attorney Shapiro.
