Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis, and Appleton – Accident & Personal Injury Attorneys
The firm of Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis and Appleton has always focused its efforts on one goal: providing experienced legal assistance to those in need. While our firm is based in beautiful Virginia Beach, Virginia, we offer our legal services to clients in states across the Southern U.S., including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington D.C. We are proud to have served injury victims in these states by not only offering them unparalleled legal advice, but by delivering results.
While our law firm is held in high regards by our past clients, we are also highly revered by our peers and the members of the judiciary system. In 2000, the firm of Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis and Appleton was able to secure what was then the largest trial verdict for a personal injury plaintiff in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our law firm also holds the highest law firm peer review rating granted by the Martindale-Hubbell Lawyer rating service and only a few years ago, we were accepted into the Primerus Group, a highly esteemed network of small and independent Plaintiff law firms. Admission into this group is very selective, however, our proven trial record and the satisfaction of our clients with our legal work allowed us to become part of this elite group, being one of only 25 other firms to hold this honor.
The American South has recently become one of the top economic zones in the United States, with over 800,000 citizens moving into the region over the past decade. These citizens have realized the same thing that many American corporations have realized: the Southeast United States has a very large amount of economic and income potential, not only for businesses but for the individual citizen as well. Unfortunately, however, one of the main reasons that businesses and corporations are attracted to the Southeast is because of the trend of lax regulation of business ventures by state legislatures. When businesses are only lightly regulated they can abuse not only the laws but also their employees. Furthermore, these same legislatures that are allowing businesses to easily establish their firms in the South are also limiting the amount of civil damages that can be claimed by people injured due to negligence.
