Got on my case immediately! Anna got on top of my case IMMEDIATELY regarding an employment related settlement. I appreciate her being prompt in resolving my issue for me and I’m happy with the result!

Anna’s a winner! Anna Shapiro responded in a timely manner, was up front about expectations and the intricacies of filing a suit in Massachusetts as an employer at will state. She still got the job done and was able to get a settlement that was fair in a short period of time. She also has a great team of supporting staff that were available when needed. I would definitely feel comfortable with recommending her to friends and family

Highly Recommend Attorney Anna Shapiro When I first contacted Anna about a consultation to go over a termination agreement my former employer wanted me to sign I was expecting little to nothing other than whether or not I should sign the document and what that would mean for me. After describing to her why I felt I was terminated and that I felt discriminated against she suggested that we pursue getting some compensation. She was very honest every step of the way, she said that we should go into this process expecting nothing to come out of it but she felt there was a good chance of recovering some compensation. Through the entire process she was sure not to get my hopes up about a settlement in my favor including on the final day of negotiating with my former employer. In the end, the settlement ended up being 5x what we were willing to settle on. If you are looking for an honest and trustworthy lawyer, look no further! Anna went above and beyond what I was expecting in a professional and timely manner.

Amazing!!!

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with the services I received from Shapiro Law Group. Anna was very attentive to my case and worked hard to achieve the results in my favor. We communicated via text so I was never interrupted at work. Anna quickly settled my case in a reasonable amount of time. Surprisingly, at the last minute her hard work paid off with a final offer which was amazing!! I can not thank you enough for everything you and your firm did. You took my case when other firms “For the people” wouldn’t

Professionalism Every Step of the Way

Diane, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, from the time I first called your office and we had our first zoom meeting. You did the most important thing you started off just by listening to my concerns and the horrible events that took place during my time at that terrible company. That was the first time I got to express myself, I know when having a spouse we tell them everything, but we don’t because sometimes they can judge us and throw us off course too. So, thank you! I want to say thank you to your staff I know Josh you came in after but thank you for your help too, with taking time to always answer my emails with any questions that I thought of. I’m upset I had to have this experience in my life, but grateful for the support your firm has given me. I wish everyone all the best and much more success throughout your career. – Mr SJ

That is exactly what our family needs

The Shapiro Law Group WILL get the job done! We recently hired The Shapiro Law Group for Modification of Child Support. I had looked into and interviewed other attorneys but then I saw Ann Shapiro’s video and I said, “that is exactly what our family needs”. I contacted Ann and she and our family had a free consultation with her to discuss our case and how move forward. Attorney Shapiro and Kelsey Yoon were truly a Godsend. That sounds like just words, but THEY ARE NOT. Both Attorney Shapiro and Attorney Yoon Listened, REALLY LISTENED to our case, and came up with a written motion and eventual agreement that was exactly what we needed and was equitable to protect our Granddaughter and Daughter. They represented our family’s situation in a no-nonsense and professional manner and that is exactly what we hired them to do. I cannot adequately express our gratitude and encourage anyone in a similar situation with child custody and/or child support challenges to hire them. Attorney Shapiro knows the law and will fight for and with you! Thank you, Shapiro Law Group Danita

Highly Recommend Shapiro Legal Group

As a Small business owner in Tennessee, I found myself needing an attorney in Massachusetts. My local attorney had given me 1000 referrals through a legal network. After speaking to many of those referrals, I wasn’t satisfied so I did my own search and found the Shapiro Law Group, PC. They had over 40 google reviews with exceptional ratings. I called and spoke to Anna – the owner of the firm. Anna walked me through their process making certain that I understood everything completely. This firm has a process where they discuss each case with all the attorneys in their practice and brainstorm the best possible solution for you. It was like having your own team of attorneys on your side. There’s not enough room to tell you all of the good things about this firm but everyone from the paralegal to my lead attorney was exceptional. If you find yourself in need, please consider Shapiro Legal Group, PC!!

Divorce

Shapiro Law: Divorce Experience and a Keen Business Sense

To say finding Anna Shapiro and her firm was the best thing that could have happened to me during my divorce is not an exaggeration. I was looking for someone who had great experience with the divorce process combined with a keen business sense so that I would be prepared no matter what was presented to me during this difficult process – my ex-husband is an attorney and I had no idea what I would come up against during this process. We had already been through mediation and I felt I was never going to get divorced due to all the delays I was running into without counsel of my own. I was a bit skeptical that I would be able to find a qualified attorney using the internet but I immediately felt at ease with Anna after my consultation and knew that she was the best fit for me. Anna was extremely well prepared, very efficient and very thorough with the entire process. Having worked in the legal field for over 20 years, I was thrilled to meet someone who was as conscientious and proactive as I. I was extremely impressed with her quick response to my many questions, emails, phone calls and she was always available throughout the entire process. She is aggressive when she needs to be and works very hard for her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Anna and her firm for any legal work and look forward to working with her again should the need arise.

A Stress Free Divorce

In 2012 Anna Shapiro was hired to navigate my divorce. For a onetime fee verses, an hourly fee, she promised to see my divorce through to the end. She delivered exceptionally well. My ex-husband tried to tie me up with negotiation, but Anna persisted and got me the divorce, in short order. Anna’s firm provided me a stress free divorce, as much as any divorce can be stress free. I have since, remained in contact with her and consider her a friend with integrity, compassion, and passion for everything she does. Obtaining A Final Divorce Judgment Without Litigation Successfully represented Husband and Father in his Divorce and Modification actions against the Wife. Originally, the Firm of Shapiro Law Group, PC was able to obtain a final divorce judgment for the Father without having to go through protracted litigation. This judgment included a shared legal custody, a reasonable child support amount, no alimony, equitable division of assets, as well as an inter-state parenting plan for the Minor Child prior to her starting school. In about a year, the Firm represented Father in a Modification action. The Firm was able to obtain a final judgment on the matter with an updated inter-state parenting plan, as well as to obtain a lower child support amount for the Father to pay (adjusted per new Child Support Guidelines).

I Highly Recommend Shapiro Law Group

To Whom It May Concern: During the past three years, Shapiro Law Group has provided both personal and corporate legal service on my behalf. On the personal side, SGL guided me through a family matter, where Anna Shapiro presented, negotiated, and essentially crushed the opposing counsel during a divorce. On the professional side, SGL Attorneys have provided legal counsel to Evosys, a global corporation, on incorporation, and establishment to operate in the US, based in Massachusetts.As our business has grown, SGL Attorneys have counseled Evosys on immigration matters and global business practices to ensure compliance with immigration and tax laws.

That alone speaks to the professionalism, and deep understanding of immigration laws possessed by the SGL team. I highly recommend Shapiro Law Group for business, immigration, and family legal counsel. JRH

Custody

From Unprofessional Attorney to Shapiro Law Firm

I had a very emotional custody/support situation with my ex-wife of 9 years. At the time I was working with another attorney who turned out to be very unprofessional.

Can’t Thank Anna Shapiro Enough

I can’t thank Anna Shapiro enough for her excellent representation of my niece in a hostile child custody case. She is an exceptional lawyer and a staunch defender of her client’s rights. On the Friday of the long weekend in January, my niece’s ex filed for sole custody of their child and issued the summons to appear in court the following Thursday. This was unexpected and my niece had no legal representation. Needless to say, we were distraught. On Saturday morning, we began our search for an attorney. Anna Shapiro answered our call within an hour. Her words to me were “You sound like you need help.” Anna graciously met with us on the Monday holiday and after speaking with her, my niece and I felt confident in having her represent us.

Bankruptcy

Transparent Billing

After surviving an emergency aorta dissection requiring 3 major surgeries within 10 days, our savings being depleted, and our income prospects suddenly reduced to only Social Security, we stared at the hard reality of bankruptcy. Searching on-line, we happened upon Shapiro Law Group. From the very beginning, at our introductory interview with Anna Shapiro, we could tell she was the Attorney for us. My wife and I both really liked her pleasant, but assertive and energetic, personality. Somehow we could sense that she was determined to do everything in her power to keep her promises to us. And, that is exactly how our bankruptcy experience unfolded. Our time window was tight: I had another surgery in 1 1/2 months and we had to move to another state 1 month later to be with our daughter. She therefore promised us that we would complete all the paperwork and meet the bankruptcy Judge in 2 months, the middle of our 1 month window. And she proved faithful to her promises. Everything completed on-time, just as she assured us. Furthermore, she told us up front, on day one, what her services would cost. We held yard sales to generate her fee, and true to her word she never asked for a penny more! Based on our experience, we would recommend Shapiro Law Group to anyone in need of their fields of expertise.

In Tough Times, We Are Your Trusted Resource

Filing for bankruptcy is one of the toughest things that a person can go through. My husband and I didn’t even know where to begin, then we received a recommendation to look into the legal team at Shapiro Law Group. Anna and her team made the filing process easy and calmed our nerves every step of the way. I would highly recommend Shapiro Law Group to anyone that feels there is no way out of their financial struggle and is afraid of going through this process. Its been over a year since we filed and we are in a much better place because of Anna and her great legal team!

Caring for Clients as People

Five years ago my wife and I went thru some financial issues. We really had no where else to turn!! My wife was in court, while I was in another and we truly did not know where to turn until Anna approached my wife, unaware of our issue and asked my wife if she was ok. At this point, Anna was awesome!! She made us feel welcome, and truly felt like she really cared about us as people and not just a client. Anna was very informative and completely thorough and navigated us thru the bankruptcy. Each and every phone call, and or email was answered promptly and we always felt like we were her only client!! 5 years later my family is ready to move on and Anna has a client for life!!! I could not recommend anyone more highly and I am thrilled to be able to write this review!!

She increased my understanding of the business dealing as she guiding me through the facts and the fine print. She also backed me up on my decision to not execute the document as it was. Not only did she point out things that would not have been good for me, she also gave me her honest opinion and suggested a solid alternative action plan. As a busy professional my time is limited as is my energy. My business matters are so important to me and I needed to work with someone smart, warm, kind and straight forward. I felt that with Anna, she is amazing and I highly recommend her! She will make you feel right at home.

Providing More Then Paper Work: Tailored Guidance

I am writing to thank you for the extremely helpful treatment I have received from your office. Last year, when I incorporated my business with the help of your office, I was looking for more than someone to help prepare and file the necessary documents, but also someone who could understand the purpose of my company and give tailored guidance in forming it. I was happy to have received what I was looking for and more. In the year since opening my business, I am happy to say that I have grown steadily and have been thrilled to see your practice reach new heights. Our professional relationship has also developed and I continue to place legal counsel from your office in high regard.”

Immigration

You Wont Be Sorry

Vivian was hired by my husband to help me immigrate from my home country in 2011. In 2016 I became a citizen of the United States and I couldn’t have done it without her! She guided us throughout the entire journey with her patience and kindness. Always made the time to answer all of our questions whether by email or phone and we greatly appreciated her promptness! Vivian is very knowledgeable and her attention to detail is incredible. The immigration process can be very challenging and frustrating but you can count on her to ease some of the anxiety…if there’s a problem she’ll definitely find a solution. If you need a great immigration attorney Vivian Crowell should be the first person you contact…you won’t be sorry!

Beyond Excellent

I wish there was more than 5 stars. Vivian is the best attorney I’ve ever had and I will ever have. She’s very informative and knows what she’s doing. She’s always available to answer any questions and she does it promptly. She’s the best attorney one could work with. -Mary

Excellent Immigration Lawyer

I hired her to help me file my US citizenship. My case is tricky in a sense that I had an accident that I was charged with criminal intent. I fought through court was was later dismissed. But the damage is done and may impact how I proceed with my citizenship. She guided me through what I need to do and what documents to gather in moving forward. She was very thorough with my application and was very fast to respond to any questions that I have. She has a time frame on when all will be completed and submitted to INS. She keeps me updated on the progress on my application, even before I get a letter from the INS. She very professional and I feel very comfortable talking to her. Right now I’m scheduled to have my oath taking and eventually become a US citizen.

Immigration Attorney Who Gives Individual Attention to Clients

Vivian handled my asylum case very professionally from start to finish. Before first hiring Vivian to handle my case, I consulted with two other immigration lawyers and I felt I’d be more like a file on their shelves; I didn’t feel comfortable until a friend of mine recommended Vivian and I went for a consultation. She spent almost an hour with me answering all my questions and before I left the office, I was signing a retainer agreement. She prepared my file and answered all of my legal questions through the appointments I got with her and most importantly, she kept me informed with the development of my case. I got my final approval from the asylum office after being interviewed. Vivian prepared me for the interview and held two mock interviews with me. I’d recommend Vivian to anyone; She is very knowledgeable, professional and most importantly, she really cares about her clients. We need more immigration lawyers like Vivian, ones who care about clients and not just about the money!

She Did Her Best and I Got All Done Successfully

was a great job , she did for my case my experience with her was like a miracle ,,, very much believing in her she is doing great ,,, keeping me updated and giving me all updates even before i receive any notes

Highly Recommend Attorney Anna Shapiro When I first contacted Anna about a consultation to go over a termination agreement my former employer wanted me to sign I was expecting little to nothing other than whether or not I should sign the document and what that would mean for me. After describing to her why I felt I was terminated and that I felt discriminated against she suggested that we pursue getting some compensation. She was very honest every step of the way, she said that we should go into this process expecting nothing to come out of it but she felt there was a good chance of recovering some compensation. Through the entire process she was sure not to get my hopes up about a settlement in my favor including on the final day of negotiating with my former employer. In the end, the settlement ended up being 5x what we were willing to settle on. If you are looking for an honest and trustworthy lawyer, look no further! Anna went above and beyond what I was expecting in a professional and timely manner.

Thank you Shapiro Law Ms. Shapiro and her legal team assisted me with a wrongful termination settlement in Massachusetts which is an “at will” employment state. Regardless, I was not compensated appropriately and hired Shapiro Law. The case was settled quickly and fairly with very little effort required from me. Her team handled all of the details carefully and professionally. I would highly recommend them if you feel that you were not treated fairly in the workplace.

Awesome experience I am happy to know attorney Anna Shapiro! Attorney and her team are highly professional and empathetic people. I had employment related situation. My case was closed very soon and result was positive to me. Highly recommend attorney Shapiro

Employment Case To say I was impressed is an understatement. From our initial conversation to the conclusion of my case attorney Shapiro was very thorough and transparent. Attorney Shapiro day one looked at my case and let me know it might be an uphill battle but there is a case and she was willing to fight on my behalf. As we went through the process of communicating with the opposing counsel she allowed me the opportunity to dissect documents to make sure I was comfortable with what was happening every step of the way. Fortunately she trusted me with my evidence and approach to give me the liberty to handle what was needed on my end, without steering me in a way she thought just fit her. Being as apprehensive as I was going into the mediation she was able to relieve my anxiety and be the firm presence I needed to reach the settlement we saw fit. Words can’t express enough my gratitude and appreciation for her. Anyone in search of a lawyer who will make you seen heard and understood, I highly recommend reaching out to her.

John D.

Anna pursued my employment matter on my behalf diligently and to fruition. Her efforts were very much appreciated, and I very much enjoyed working with her and her staff who, too, were very professional! Sincerely, John D.

Validation and Support When I Most Needed It! I worked with Attorney Shapiro on an employment case. I was facing some extremely challenging conditions and at the end of my rope — my mental and physical health were going downhill, quickly. I was in a place of being constantly gaslit about my performance so I was feeling really hesitant to seek legal assistance. When presenting Attorney Shapiro with documented evidence in our initial conversation (which was super thorough and still somehow free), she was honest about the things that weren’t legally relevant and incredibly validating about the things that were. She was clear, she and her office were communicative and explained all answers to any questions, big or small. Honestly, it was also really nice to have a team of incredible women supporting and empowering me to stand up for myself. I’m sure several lawyers could end with a result like we did, one that was a compromise on both sides, but it was extremely important to me to have someone I could trust advocating for me. I highly recommend at least reaching out to see if there’s anything she and her team can help with, they will be upfront about it! And I highly recommend working with her. Boring logistics: fees are on par, has good working relationships with other lawyers (did some research), great academic record, etc etc. but after speaking with several lawfirms/lawyers, I still say it’s the other stuff that stands out!

RN

Went thru after 42 years of being an RN with an impeccable record was on medical leave requiring surgery resulted in myself being wrongfully terminated Contacted this office service and compassion above the norm was able to get a settlement and justice needed in such an easy way Always kept me informed worked hard to get the bast for me so informative and by ur side seamless

Employment case

I recently had the pleasure of working with Anna Shapiro and the Shapiro Law Group PC. Anna and her team were extremely helpful in reviewing my employment case, analyzing the options available, and following through with executing the plan. I liked the fact that I was kept informed of each step in the process. I would recommend Anna and her team for any litigation issues you may have. – Dana

Just the right lawyer for the job

Anna couldn’t have come into my life at a better time. I was going through an incredibly toxic and abusive situation with a former employee(one of the major medical centers in the region). Anna answered the phone herself when I called and took the time to listen. I went on to obtain a consultation from her, and immediately felt at ease in the presence of her calm composed presence. After deciding to retain her, there were times where I remember feeling frustrated and wishing that she would be more aggressive, but in hind sight her composure and restraint were exactly what I needed with my case. Anna had basically gone behind the scenes and taken the time to understand the full weight of the situation I was in, and she knew full well that being more aggressive was a really bad option for me. Anna had taken the time to understood how manipulative, sinister, and evil the powers my former employee was able to wield against me given the institutions in play. Anna was able to maintain enough leverage to keep the wolves at bay and negotiated the best possible outcome given my situation. Anna’s hourly rates are reasonable, and in my case that was really appreciated because the overall cost of my representation ended up being significant. The complexity of the situation required someone brilliant to go through every last detail with a fine comb. For me that someone brilliant was Anna, and she ended up being worth her weight in gold. Thank you so much Anna, my life wouldn’t be the same today without you. If you hadn’t been there when I needed you most, I’d still be picking up the pieces. – Byron

Professionalism Every Step of the Way

Diane, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, from the time I first called your office and we had our first zoom meeting. You did the most important thing you started off just by listening to my concerns and the horrible events that took place during my time at that terrible company. That was the first time I got to express myself, I know when having a spouse we tell them everything, but we don’t because sometimes they can judge us and throw us off course too. So, thank you! I want to say thank you to your staff I know Josh you came in after but thank you for your help too, with taking time to always answer my emails with any questions that I thought of. I’m upset I had to have this experience in my life, but grateful for the support your firm has given me. I wish everyone all the best and much more success throughout your career. – Mr SJ

Winning an Employment Case

It’s been an incredibly busy 5 months – I was able to relocate, enroll my son into school (he skipped a grade!), get a great job at a Bank, and take a family trip to Aruba. I have been able to accomplish so much in so little time, and I couldn’t have done it without your help. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am. Thank you for being kind and patient with me, and for guiding me every step of the way. Anonymous Client
