  • Clear & Professional Legal Support

    03/29/2017

    Anna Shapiro showed up in my life to defend me against gratuitous hatred at a time when I was alone, shunned and suffering. Her compassion and willingness to serve my best interest were a great help in sorting through the legal issues at hand. She helped me find clarity, heal, and find a new footing for myself. I recommend Anna for anybody who needs kind, understanding and professional legal support.

  • Strong Moral Principles

    06/6/2016

    Anna and her firm handled my situation with the utmost professionalism. My situation could have gone one of two ways; a drawn out litigious battle or a compromise between the two parties. Anna always kept my best interests at heart and explained the pros and cons of both avenues. There are attorneys out there that would have pushed going down the route of a drawn out legal battle for billable hours, Anna is not. You can be assured she operates with integrity. The outcome of my case was the best that could be expected through a mediated compromise.

  • I Highly Recommend Shapiro Law Group

    05/25/2016

    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. The SLG Immigration team, led by Vivian Crowell, processed an L1-Visa that was submitted to ICE, and approved without any request for additional information. 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.

  • 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.

  • "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. She understood our needs, was diligent in getting the work done on time, and was a true professional in the court room. We won our case due to Anna's outstanding work! She saved my niece from the heartache of losing her child. For that we are forever grateful. I highly recommend Anna Shapiro and her staff to anyone needing legal assistance."

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I Highly Recommend Shapiro Law Group

    05/25/2016

    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. The SLG Immigration team, led by Vivian Crowell, processed an L1-Visa that was submitted to ICE, and approved without any request for additional information. 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.

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.

  • Excellent Immigration Lawyer

    5 starsposted by a client, Jan. 24, 2016

    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

    5 starsposted by Fady , Sep. 19, 2015

    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!
