Shapiro & Appleton

About Shapiro & Appleton

Shapiro & Appleton is dedicated to representing those injured in the eastern USA due to the carelessness and fault of others. The firm has achieved many record breaking settlements and verdicts since being established in 1985. It is important to study whether a personal injury attorney/law firm has a long history of major trial success. Our law firm verdict history speaks volumes. The firm handles all types of personal injury cases including car accident injuries, truck wreck injuries, railroad accidents, faulty product injuries, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. Our firm has offices in Virginia Beach, Hampton, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Norfolk, VA along with a satellite office in Kitty Hawk, NC. Our team of lawyers have represented thousands of accident injury victims throughout the eastern United States and the firm's personal injury lawyers have decades of combined legal experience. We achieved the highest available "AV" lawyer rating from Martindale-Hubbell lawyer rating service. In addition, our firm features lawyers who have been designated Virginia "Super Lawyers" in Law & Politics Magazine and who have been named among the "Best Lawyers in America" by U.S. News & World Report (since 2010). Ratings in these organizations are all obtained through an objective assessment by third parties. No lawyer can pay to obtain an AV Rating, Super Lawyer rating, or Best Lawyer rating. There are a tiny number of injury law firms that have actually been involved in transportation & auto injury litigation in nearly every state along the eastern half of the USA. We are unique in this regard. Our personal injury law firm has handled cases in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Washington D.C., South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Maryland, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Louisiana and beyond. We fight for a level playing field in the civil justice system which includes enforcing civil rights and equality under the law for all our clients. Attorneys at our firm not only actively handle personal injury trials, but are active as officers and members in national lawyer's organizations, such as the American Association For Justice (AAJ) and several other national and state organizations, which are a vital source of legal information for injury lawyers. We serve clients in all Virginia/North Carolina areas, including Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Petersburg, Franklin, Emporia and the Eastern Shore. Of course, we also handle cases in Northeast NC, and all areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Washington, D.C. and points beyond.
