  • Randy was always proactive about my case.

    I was injured in a car accident and needed legal representation. My stepfather recommended the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnlaw firm and I am so glad he did. I met with attorney Randy Appleton and he was a professional throughout the process. My phone calls were returned promptly and Randy was always proactive about my case. Everyone at the firm, including Randy's legal assistant Becky, were so helpful. I truly appreciate the quality of legal representation I received from this firm. I would recommend them to friends and family who are in need of representation in their time of need after an accident. Jurisdiction of the case: Portsmouth, Virginia (VA)

  • If you are working for a railroad and in need of legal representation or just simple advice, I urge you to call the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnlaw firm.

    I sustained, what turned out to be, a career-ending back injury in 2007. I suffered this injury while working as a railroad police officer. I discovered how difficult it was to find an attorney who was even remotely familiar with railroad policy and procedure. After several months of searching, which included two attorneys who said they were familiar with the railroad but were not (having commuter train tracks that run past your back yard does not constitute familiarity), I finally found and contacted Attorney Randall E. Appleton from the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnfirm. Not only was Mr. Appleton very knowledgeable about railroad policy and procedure, but also past and present case law as it pertained to my case. He happens to also be a very decent and patient human being. After a four year legal process, Mr. Appleton was able to push the railroad towards a settlement.  If you are working for a railroad and in need of legal representation or just simple advice, I urge you to call the Shapiro, Appleton & Washburnlaw firm. Their attorneys are not only capable and responsive, but also very patient and respectful. If you are lucky, Mr. Appleton may be available to handle your case. And as a bonus, he comes with an equally pleasant and capable assistant by the name of Becky as well. As a now-retired police officer, one thing that I absolutely cannot stand is someone who does not shoot straight or speak the truth. Mr. Appleton is a straight-shooter. He will always tell you the truth as it pertains to your particular case, good or bad, always in a pleasant tone, and always with that classic southern drawl that will remind you of the generous hospitality that the south is known for. He is a true gentleman.

  • I would highly recommend family and friends to Emily or Jim.

    Emily and Jim worked tirelessly on my case. There were many difficulties with my case because the defendant driver could not be found.  Despite those issues, Emily and Jim were able to settle my case for $225k. I would highly recommend family and friends to Emily or Jim.

  • Kevin made sure that I understood every minute detail related to my case and how it could have affected the outcome.

      Kevin Duffan kept me apprised of all case related developments to include those which were both favorable and potentially unfavorable to my case. Kevin also made sure that I understood every minute detail related to my case and how it could have affected the outcome. While I'd choose Kevin to represent me 100 out of 100 times, I liked knowing that all members of Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton had my best interests in mind. My wife and I attended undergraduate school with Kevin and have kept in touch with him and his career ever since. The most important thing about my treatment by this firm is that I was never pushed into making a decision, talked over with the use of legal-ease, or looked at as another opportunity for the firm to make money.  I would absolutely refer any friend or family member to this firm.

  • It could not have been a better outcome. I was surprised and happy with the amount of money I received.

    I was very happy with the ease of having my car accident case handled by the lawyers at Shapiro & Appleton. Everything was explained to me and the advice I got was very sound.  They took care of everything.  It could not have been a better outcome. I was surprised and happy with the amount of money I received. I was really glad to see all my medical bills get paid through the settlement.             The lawyer helped me to get seen by an orthopedic doctor, even though I had no health insurance.  Without this help in finding the right doctor, no recovery would have been possible.  I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone who needed personal injury help in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

  • I was treated like a person, not a number.

    My attorney was Kevin Duffan and he explained everything in detail during the claims process. When I called the firm, they were very helpful. I was treated like a person, not just a number. If a friend or family member ever gets injured in an accident, I would definitely refer them to this personal injury law firm.
