Eric Shapiro is the only lawyer you need in my opinion. He’s professional, friendly and very accessible. He will handle all my legal matters in the future.Jan 27, 2020Verified
How quickly Mr. Shapiro responded in regards to my divorce matterMar 27, 2018Verified
Do your work before you hire this guy. Google "Eric Shapiro disciplinary history" and you will see that he was reprimanded by the GA bar for a lot of the same issues I had with him when I hired him to handle my divorce, most notably unresponsiveness. I would text or call, and it would take him weeks to respond. When he first began the papers for my divorce, he sent me a file that had half my information and then the next few pages of the attachment were someone else's case. He then blamed the slowness of my case on the court, the weather, and then the holidays, being in mediation for other cases, blah blah blah... but he could have called more frequently than he did to see what was going on. He kept me in the dark through most of the process, which was demoralizing and unfair. When my divorce was finally finalized, it took him over three weeks to even let me know. If you need further proof that this guy will basically ghost you, check out the "unclaimed reviews" on yelp. These reviews are sort of hidden on his page because he hasn't claimed the business on yelp, so they don't publish the reviews, but once you locate them, you'll see that they directly corroborate with my experience. Whatever you do, don't hire this guy. Unless, of course, you're interested in him being super responsive when he's soliciting your business and then dropping you like a hot potato once your case gets rolling.Jan 2, 2018
Eric is a fantastic attorney. He helped me to stay focused throughout my contempt hearing and child support modification. He is patient and doesn't spend more time than is needed on an issue. He quickly understood the background of my case and did an excellent job of representing me in court.Jun 26, 2017
