For more than 25 years, our team has assisted individuals regain their quality of life after a serious injury. Shapiro Winthers P.C. is proud to have been honored with a ranking in the 2017 and 2018 editions of US News & World Report® – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in personal injury law.

Our firm takes a different approach to helping our clients from the start by immediately connecting initial phone calls with an attorney. We provide these expert consultations to make certain we are building a complete understanding of the situation from the very first conversation.

Our law firm is further set apart by the approach we take once we are officially representing a client. Shapiro Winthers P.C. asserts the expertise of our entire staff on individual cases, giving our clients the benefit of our firm’s collective knowledge and experience. The client experience is very personal, because it is only by knowing you personally that we can fully understand how your injuries uniquely affect you and your family. It is only by knowing you personally that we can make sure you are fairly compensated for your losses.

Quality of life means more to us than simply helping clients to secure financial settlements. We know that compensation after an injury is a critical consideration, but it is one of numerous other concerns in the aftermath of serious injuries. So, our service to each client goes above and beyond just resolving the legal case. For example, we routinely help resolve medical billing issues that arise even after a case is over; we assist with health insurance denials of necessary medical care; we ensure public benefits are preserved when appropriate, and we ensure that appropriate trusts and/or sound financial plans are set-up so that settlement funds last. We believe it is our duty to aid in the planning for life after a serious injury, and we never cut corners in helping each person we represent secure the greatest possible future.
