Shapiro Legal Group is proud to announce that 2014 was a banner year for our firm.  Not just because of a stellar year in trial court but because of the numerous injured people we were able to help.  This included providing assistance with finding medical care, helping to get medical expenses paid, and of course increasing our clients' financial recoveries from their claims.  While the economic advantage of hiring counsel is beneficial, the piece of mind of having an experienced attorney handle the matter while the injured person focuses on their health and their recovery cannot be overstated.  We hope we have an equally successful 2015 and hope that you do as well.
