From Start To Finish, He Cared, He Loved, He Advocated, He Fought, He Was There as Lawyer, Friend and as Family I have known William Shapiro going on 16 years now and when tragedy hit my family when my daughter was catastrophically hit by a bus while walking, William Shapiro and Brian Shapiro where there as family first. They made sure that my wife, my daughter, and I knew that they were there as family and that they cared for us and our well being before any talk of lawyering and any words of a lawsuit arose. Little did I know that behind the scenes William and his team were doing the things that were necessary to protect my daughter's legal rights and doing all of the research needed and putting all of the "ducks" in a row to make sure that when I and my wife were ready to have that talk, as hard as it was, that we knew that they were on our side and ready to fight to the end. From the moment that I met with William by myself regarding my daughter's matter, and without my wife as she was tending to my daughter in the hospital, William assured me that he was going to go to the ends of this earth to make sure that my daughter was taken care of for the rest of her life and that we were in good hands. I always knew that we were in good hands because I had seen William's work before on other matters, but this being a personal matter, I was amazed at the level of care and brilliance at which William operated. He guided my wife and I step by step through this process, allowed us to cry when we couldn't hold it in any more, and always had us feel, which I already knew, that my daughter was of paramount importance. The great thing is that not only did he put his heart and soul in to this case, as he does with all of his case, but he delivered. As a result of the severe accident my daughter was left with permanent disabilities. As devastating as this is, Mr. Shapiro has made the remainder of my daughter's life as comfortable as it could possibly be. I know that that this result was because of William's experience, knowledge and tenacity. There is so much more that I would like to say about William but there is not enough space on this review to do so. All I can say is that if you are dealing with a catastrophic injury to yourself or someone in your family, you are doing you or your loved one and huge disservice by not hiring this firm. I am a lawyer also. And again, in the many years that I have known William and have always admired him and secretly took bits and pieces of what he would say in passing and incorporate them into my own practice just to try to measure up to the excellence that he provides. After being a client of his and seeing how he works from start to finish, how much of a true "counselor" he is, how much of an advocate that he is, I have realized that it would take me two life times to measure up to him. I thank him eternally for what he did for my daughter. Truly and simply the best personal injury lawyer in the land. My wife, daughter and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
