San Bernardino California (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
William D. Shapiro, partner at Robinson Calcagnie Robinson Shapiro Davis Inc., was named the 2014 William Shernoff Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Consumer Attorneys of California, Inland Empire Chapter.
“I am very humbled in receiving this award,” said Shapiro. “I was deeply privileged in 2013 when the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association presented me with their Personal Injury “Top Gun, Trial Lawyer of the Year,“ award, I am extremely honored to be presented with this award by the Consumer Attorneys of the Inland Empire. While these awards are greatly appreciated, the highest honor is helping clients and their families whose lives have been so impacted by the devastating injuries and deaths they’ve suffered. ”
Mr. Shapiro had two recent major victories, the first involved resulting in a catastrophic spinal injury*, the second, serious brain injuries and wrongful death**. These cases were against trucking companies arising from semi-tractor/trailer crashes on major highways. Both cases were tried resulting in a $11.9 million dollar verdict, the other $25.5 million.
Recognized by the California State Bar as a specialist in Civil Trial Advocacy, Mr. Shapiro handles cases involving serious injuries and wrongful deaths resulting from big rig, automobile and other accidents as well as from defective vehicles and products. For over 35 years, Mr. Shapiro has dedicated his legal career to being an advocate for those seriously injured or the families of those who’ve lost loved ones. “Being the voice for those injured or for families who otherwise would have no voice against powerful corporations and insurance companies provides balance to our legal system. This is what I, my partners and the lawyers in my firm have done now going on 4 decades. We’re proud to serve and we will continue as long as able.”
