  • I would highly recommend Jim and his firm to anyone who needs legal representation.

    I definitely recommend JIm Lewis to anyone who suffered a medical malpractice injury. I underwent a total hysterectomy and, during the procedure, the doctor nicked my ureter. After the procedure, I was unable to, use the bathroom, I couldn’t hold down water, I was vomiting and I didn’t know what was going on until I had an MRI. I found out that my kidney wasn’t functioning.  Initially, I went to a different VA medical malpractice lawyer who told me that I didn't have a case. That lawyer said my ureter being cut and nicked was "an acceptable complication." However, I didn't think it was an acceptable complication so I looked for other lawyers and I stumbled upon the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnlaw firm. I saw a video featuring medical malpractice injury attorney Jim Lewis where he specifically talked about cut and nicked ureters. I met with Jim and told him that I was near the statute of limitations for bringing a personal injury case against the doctor; only a few months away to be exact. Jim acted right away and we were able to successfully file a claim. Jim was very knowledgeable about my ureter injury and he informed me that he handled other cases based on the same type of malpractice.  He called me several times and said that he really wanted me to keep in contact and keep the lines of communication open. I was very satisfied with the level of contact by Jim and his assistants, Melissa and Denelle. They were really personable.  They always got right back to me if I had a question or issue.  I would highly recommend Jim and his firm to anyone who needs legal representation.

  • I am so grateful to Mr. Shapiro and his staff for all they did for my husband and me.

    Mr. Shapiro represented my late husband Harold in a personal injury lawsuit against [railroad corporation].  My husband died from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  This cancer was caused by occupational exposures.  Mr. Shapiro was so kind and compassionate to my husband and me during his illness.  He and his staff helped us so much with all the records and paperwork needed for his case.  My husband passed away before his case was resolved.  Mr. Shapiro continued to help me with everything that had to be done.  I was so thankful for the money from the settlement.  Nothing could replace my husband, but I know his voice was heard, and perhaps measures will be taken in the future to protect the workers.  I am so grateful to Mr. Shapiro and his staff for all they did for my husband and me.

  • Mr. Shapiro was very understanding, very compassionate.

    My life was turned upside down after I suffered an electric shock injury. I needed a Virginia personal injury lawyer and did a Google search to find a law firm that actually handled this type of case. Fortunately, I found Rick Shapiro and the law firm of Shapiro & Appleton. Mr. Shapiro and his staff were very thorough and they stayed on it until the end. Mr. Shapiro was very fast in getting the right statements from the right people like the electrical engineer, the electrical company, the electrician.  He knew what was needed to get the job done.

  • Jim took on my case with full force. He fought for me when no one else would.

    I went in for a partial hysterectomy and that procedure changed my life forever. I was seriously injured by a doctor's mistake and spent weeks bedridden. I decided to speak with a medical malpractice lawyer and found Jim Lewis by doing a Google search. Jim took on my case with full force. He fought for me when no one else would. He made sure that I'll be taken care of for the long-term. I know he has my best interests at heart. Jurisdiction of the case: Newport News, Virginia (VA)

  • We were treated like real people, not just another case file.

    My husband's life was turned upside down because of an awful trip and fall accident at our vacation home. My husband tripped on a step, fell backwards and suffered a hip injury that required a bunch of medical prosecures, including hip replacment surgery. We decided that the best course of action was to seek representation from a personal injury law firm. My son did an online search and found the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnlaw firm. We were represented by Emily Mapp Brannon and Rick Shapiro. They were great. We were treated like real people, not just another case file. I still remember receiving flowers and a card from Emiily after my husband underwent surgery. That meant a lot. If that wasn't enough, they were able to get us a very sizable settlement. This is money we will need to cover the large amount of medical bills and future care my husband will need. I am so glad we decided to speak to a law firm and we went with this fantastic firm.
