  • Mr. Shapiro and his co-counsel discovered the reason this tragedy occurred and sent a strong financial message to the manufacturer about how important it is to make safe products.

    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.

  • The law firm took care of everything. They were so polite and kept me informed throughout the process.

    I had a DePuy ASR hip replacement device implanted and suffered tremendous pain afterwards. The pain in my body after having that device implanted was indescribable. I was shocked when they announced the recall and knew I needed a lawyer. My sister told me to contact Jim Lewis with Shapiro & Appleton. I live in Shenandoah, Virginia and was concerned about the distance between myself and the firm. However, Jim assured me that his team could handle everything by phone and e-mail. All I had to do was focus on getting better. Jim stayed true to his word. The law firm took care of everything. They were so polite and kept me informed throughout the process. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and highly recommend Jim and the firm to friends and family.

  • Kevin was friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to help.

    I'm so glad I found the Shapiro & Appleton law firm. I initially spoke with another law firm and they made me feel very discouraged and didn't think I had a case. I did some online research for a personal injury law firm and found Shapiro & Appleton. My daughter was represented by Kevin Duffan and he did a fantastic job. Kevin was friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to help. I was very impressed by his level of communication. He was always willing to advise me on what was happening with my daughter's case. I am so pleased with the outcome and would recommend Kevin's legal services to friends, family, and if I'm ever injured, he will be one the first people I call.  Jurisdiction of the case: Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA)
