  • This firm has the resources and experts to win a case against a big railroad.

    In 2014, my father died of lung cancer. This cancer started in his lungs and spread to his body. My father made me promise to have an autopsy after he died because of the terrible working conditions and asbestos exposure he had in his 40-year career with the railroad. The results came back and we went through two different law firms that turned down are case. My sister then ran across Rick Shapiro on the internet. He actually answered the call when she called. Rick went the extra mile and sent tissue to a pathologist and found asbestos. We then filed a lawsuit against the railroad. This firm has the resources and experts to win a case against a big railroad. We settled just a week before trial with more than 10 times the amount they first offered. I would recommend the firm and its staff. Our family is very satisfied with our experience.

  • We are very pleased with Mr. Shapiro and recommend him.

    It was two days before Christmas when Frank decided to trim the grass in his back yard in anticipation of the family arriving for Christmas dinner on Christmas Day. Minutes later he was engulfed in burning gasoline from an exploding gas tank on his Ryobi riding lawn mower. Despite the efforts of his wife of 60 years, he sadly died in front of her. The family was stunned and horrified, how could this possibly happen to him, or to anyone out mowing their lawn.   Frank's wife and two family members decided to find out how this could happen but due to the burned remains of the Ryobi mower they knew they would need professional help. During their search an article appeared in the local paper of an inventor announcing a new invention and coincidentally he was also an attorney  It seemed logical that we needed someone who understood how mechanical things work so after discussions the decision was made to hire Attorney/Inventor Richard Shapiro of Virginia Beach, Va.   It was a long, bumpy road of discovery but in the end Mr. Shapiro and his co-counsel Mr. Sullivan discovered the reason this tragedy occurred and sent a strong financial message to the manufacturer about how important it is to make safe products and for them to announce to their customers all safety/defect issues. We are very pleased with Mr. Shapiro and recommend him.

  • I am 100 percent satisfied with the outcome of my case and would definitely recommend this firm to others.

    I got hurt in a car accident in Newport News. The insurance company was not offering me a fair settlement so I decided to hire a Newport News personal injury lawyer. Kevin Duffan was my attorney and he did a great job. His legal assistant, Tara, did everything she said she was going to do and it was so easy to talk to both Tara and Kevin. I am 100 percent satisfied with the outcome of my case and would definitely recommend this firm to others.

  • Rick Shapiro worked hard on my case and I was very satisfied with the settlement that I received

    I got hurt in a bad car accident. My medical costs were staggering and I did not know if the auto insurance company was going to cover all my bills. I decided to hire a personal injury lawyer and found Rick Shapiro. I am so glad I hired Mr. Shapiro. He worked hard on my case and I was very satisfied with the settlement that I received. Rick also helped me with my Medicare bills and I was relieved to find out that Medicare only required me to payback a small percentage of the amount spent on medical costs for my therapy and recovery. Thank you for your negotiation with the parties in my case.

I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case and would definitely recommend Kevin and his firm.
