Shapiro Takes on Bully Attorney. 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.
Excellent attorney. 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...

BIll did an amazing job, truly. Bill got things done, didnt let my case get bogged down into legal limbo. Things got done and done quickly. I am very happy with how he managed my case. I cant recommend him enough.
Honest, personable and dedicated attorney. 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...
The Attorney's Attorney. Some cases require the experience and expertise of a professional like Mr. Shapiro. When those cases arise in my own practice, I don't hesitate to refer them to Bill. He is passionate and unrelenting. I recently referred a close family member to Bill. His dedication was inspiring. He leaves no stone unturned; prepares a case thoroughly; and is just a superb trial attorney. Above all though, Bill is a man of absolute integrity.
Excellent Lawyer. Bill Shapiro represented us on our case for five years. From the moment we met Bill in our home, we felt that we truly had someone who would tenaciously and passionately commit his time, energy, knowledge, and skill to obtaining justice for our family. We not only got that from Bill but much more. He always showed that he valued us as individuals. He was caring, supportive, and continually made time for our calls and emails. He and his staff...

Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference and Bill is the RIGHT one! 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...
Mr. Shapiro was professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable about the law. He was kind and compassionate towards me, but a PITBULL in mediation! If you're looking for a no B.S. attorney, Bill Shapiro's your guy!

Mr. Shapiro was a killer lawyer. His professionalism surpased all my expectations and consistently put me at ease at each level of my case.
#1 Attorney. Dealt with several attorney’s before finding bill and I will say bill is the best, truthful, honest, and straight to the point. He gives you a realistic view of your case and doesn’t just take any case. He gets things done and handled for you, no if and’s or But’s. I would never hire any other attorney.
Very Happy with Bill and his office. Good customer Service, always quick to answer any questions I had, unlike some other lawyers. Understood my situation and offered great advice. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone. A+
Alechman - vs - City of Redlands California. 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
Luck is not what you need when choosing a lawyer to represent your case. Thank god I was referred to use Mr. Shapiro. Luck is not what you need when choosing a lawyer to represent your case. Thank god I was referred to use Mr. Shapiro. I was slapped with a dubious claim against my company about 9 months ago. I originally hired a local attorney but soon realized that I was headed into trouble if I continued using that firm for my case that turned quite complicated. I was referred by some business colleagues to Bill Shapiro and his firm. I meet with Bill and...
Fantastic attorney! Fantastic attorney! Bill is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and yet caring attorneys that I have dealt with ever. He always made sure that I knew what was happening with my case either with a phone call or letter. When I was in his office he never rushed me out. He made sure all of the legal terms and the next steps in my case were understandable to me as a lay person. His confidence in my case that it will be resolved in my favor is very comforting.
Our family's hero! When our daughter was nearly fatally injured in a motor vehicle accident at the age of 2, we needed someone fully capable and trustworthy to handle her case. Mr. Shapiro was that person for us. He professionally handled business while I was able to care for our daughter. He really cares for his clients and goes above and beyond to ensure a smooth experience. 15 years later, he still looks after us and we consider him family. If you are looking for a great person to represent you, this is your guy. He made sure my daughter was taken care of for the rest of her life. I would not trust anyone else but him for legal advice in the future! We love you Bill!
OUTSTANDNG LAWYER! Bill is the lawyer you want sitting next to you in the courtroom! Not many lawyers get involved on an emotional level, but Bill Shapiro does. He is a true professional as well as a deeply caring person. A combination like this is truly hard to find in any profession. Bill treats each and every client as though they are family. During the course of my case, I was especially impressed with the wealth of knowledge and respect Bill has for the law. I deeply feel that Bill's continued commitment to his clients, his staff and his profession; is what has made him such an outstanding lawyer today. Bill reaches beyond what is possible and makes it happen! Without a doubt, I would recommend him all day long. Thank you Bill for all you do!
Awesome Attorney. Mr. Shapiro is a great attorney to have on your side. His passion to help his clients prevail and stand up for what is right is uplifting. Before I met with Attorney Shapiro, I felt defeated in my case. He instructed me to trust in him from day one and that is exactly what I did. His legal advice is always right on, he never danced around the point. Mr. Shapiro and his staff always effectively communicated with me and kept me well informed during the duration...

Tough. Thorough. And compassionate. Mr. Shapiro was the driving force of our team of lawyers representing us in a wrongful death case. Once he joined our case, he took charge and moved the process along. I would highly recommend Bill to represent my friends and family in the future if needed. Even though our case involved multiple siblings, he and the office always answered each one of us. He kept us in the loop, he informed us on expectations and possibilities in a kind way.
Compassionate and caring Compassionate and caring. I was referred to Bill Shapiro through another law firm. Mr Shapiro was willing to take on the tragedy that was visited on my family. He handled the case with purposefulness and a determination to do the best he could for my family even when it became obvious that there was no monetary value to this tragic situation. Bill continued to pursue ways to bring this to closure and in the end helped us to a solution that is agreeable to all. I highly recommend Mr. Shapiro for his professionalism and his compassion.
Experience and Trust Worthy. Thank you for delivering my family the favorable court judgment beyond our expectation despite the many challenges/complexities in the case.

You helped us navigate through the complex legal process at a time the most difficult period in our life. I cannot say enough how happy and confident we felt to have...
The man cares about his clients!! The level of professionalism from this man is extremely impressive.

Every time I have had interactions with Bill or his staff I have always believed, and continue to believe, that my case was their first priority. I have the utmost respect for Bill and his practice. I would definitely recommend Bill as an attorney...
Pre-eminent. Bill Shapiro is a stand out personal injury trial lawyer who recently handled a products liability case for us, together with his son, Brian. They are an outstanding team of professionals, who obtained a fantastic result for us. The process was seamless from beginning to end. The team are not only professional and excellent litigators, they are also compassionate and kind.
BILL IS A LAWYER'S LAWYER. I retained Bill Shapiro to serve as co-counsel on a wrongful death lawsuit arising from a motorcycle accident. I spent about a year and a half litigating the matter myself and watched Safeco try to lowball my clients for the loss of their beloved son. Within two months after retaining Bill as co-counsel, Safeco quickly and wisely offered the policy limits. Bill is a lawyer's lawyer. I highly recommend him as counsel or co-counsel on all catastrophic injury cases.
Truly dedicated lawyer. I hired Mr. Bill Shapiro to represent my severe TBI son. From the very beginning Mr. Shapiro along with his son Brian tackled my sons case full force. Mr. Shapiro’s love and respect for the law is commendable. He is passionate and I truly appreciated his up front honesty. He successfully represented my son, I and my family will forever be grateful.
Prompt. Mr. Shapiro got back to me very quickly in regards to my inquiry. Sadly, he was preparing for a big trial & could not take me on at this time & referred me over to one of his colleagues.
Highly recommended. Mr. Shapiro represented me in a Loss of Spouse case. He and his staff were professional and caring during the representation. Mr. Shapiro informed me of the process throughout the completion of the case. I received compensation and again he and his staff always were professional. I chose the right attorney and would recommend him to anyone that needs his services. He interviews his potential client diligently for both clients benefit to be sure he can do his job effectively.
Call Bill, he will fight for you!!! 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.
Oh My Gosh! We had never had a need for a lawyer, so we were both anxious and skeptical to find one after my husband was injured in a bicycling accident. We researched a few, and then accepted an invitation to sit down with Mr. Shapiro and his son Brian
Bill Shaprio was my attorney for a personal injury case that resulted from a “big truck” accident from which I sustained permanent back injuries. The whole incident cause physical and emotional stress, not to mention the legal issues in CA while I live in NC. When my local attorneys found Bill Shaprio and I retained him, I gained an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who worked tirelessly on my behalf. He was persistent, honest and thorough, and even through some of the most difficult times, he always reminded me that he was on my side and working for my benefit. He did that, too! Prior to trial, he negotiated a settlement and went far beyond my expectations in what he accomplished. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without him. He was truly a God-send!
Great Lawyer! Bill Shapiro handled my case like it was the biggest case in the world. The greatest part of all of this was it was a very small case for Mr. Shapiro. We won the case and Mr. Shapiro was in the courtroom every day fighting for me. Bill Shapiro is one of the best Lawyers I have ever worked with. Thank you Bill!
