Taking Causes, Not Cases
National reputation for providing justice for clients through more than 30 years of knowledge and experience to handle the most complex medical malpractice cases.
Healthcare is a massive industry, and hospitals have enormous resources (both legal and financial) to defend their employees against claims of wrongdoing. Even when healthcare providers are at fault for medication errors, a misdiagnosis, cerebral palsy or surgical errors, they will defend against paying a claim to the fullest extent possible. Richard has never seen a medical professional admit fault in malpractice suits, even when the mistake is obvious to everyone else.
You do not want to go against a hospital or specialist on your own. You need experienced medical malpractice lawyers with proven results on your side. These lawyers will hold negligent parties responsible when they refuse to admit to wrongdoing.
For more than 30 years, each personal injury lawyer at Shapiro Law Group has helped victims seek justice from health care professionals who committed catastrophic harm.View all practice areas

“My dad lost his fingers on one hand due to malpractice after a successful surgery that did not involve fingers. For months we were told it was because of debris in his blood. It was not. Mr. Shapiro and his associates were relentless in getting the medical records until the "missing" page was sent. Then they had the hard and arduous job of finding a doctor willing to testify. An informative video and audio with the doctor's testimony was presented. Case closed. Because of their due diligence, a satisfactory settlement was reached. Mr. Shapiro's law firm worked hard, were extremely thorough, professional, and kept in constant communication throughout the whole stressful ordeal. Mr. Shapiro still remembers my parents and keeps in touch with my mom, even after 15 years have passed. That alone is impressive.”Patti A.
“The Shapiro Law Group represented our daughter, family, and reputation in winning our daughters case that was due to a catastrophic injury. We interviewed many lawyers and felt Mr. Shapiro would ultimately do what was best for our family. Being involved in a lawsuit is very difficult, emotional, and exhausting. If it weren’t for the Shapiro Law Group fighting for our daughter and family, I don’t know where we would be now. They are very thorough, knowledgeable, and know what needs to be done. Lawsuits can take a very long time, and we knew that Shapiro Law Group would not give up. They did whatever was necessary to help our daughter. We can’t thank Mr. Shapiro enough for all he has done for so many! During a very difficult situation in our lives, the Shapiro Law Group went above and beyond in guiding our family in helping our daughter. We would highly recommend this firm. Thank you,”Stephanie P.
