Why Choose Our Firm
We represent the injured that is all that we do. Many firms advertise that they handle personal injury claims, but at Shapero | Roloff it is our passion. We see the fight for justice and the fight for individuals’ rights as a noble calling. We represent all of our clients, from those with sophisticated medical negligence, employment, or product liability cases, to those with clear fault auto accident cases, with the same level of competence and compassion. We take your personal tragedy seriously, which means that if you choose us to represent you, we will not refer you to another attorney. We will represent you fully from start to finish.
Our passion for justice extends beyond each individual client. In recent years, tort reform measures have been passed by the legislature after aggressive lobbying by large corporations. These tort reform measures seek to strip away individual rights and make it difficult to bring injury claims. Through seminar teaching, community leadership roles, and volunteering, we at Shapero | Roloff strive to educate others about the importance of preserving individual rights.

We take seriously the old adage that “a lawyer’s reputation is his or her most valuable asset.” In recent years, public opinion of lawyers has suffered. At Shapero | Roloff we strive to give not only our clients, but our referring and opposing counsel, a reason to believe that lawyers are good. We listen to our clients, educate them about the legal process, and are available to share information about their cases with them. We also work extremely hard to ensure that all of our actions in vigorously representing our clients are carried out with the utmost professionalism and ethics. We do not feel that there is any need to sacrifice these two sacred tenants in order to be successful, and our widespread reputation proves this.
We are very proud of how much of our business reaches us through word-of-mouth referrals from clients and legal professionals, and we constantly strive to maintain the respect of our colleagues. In the end, our well-regarded reputation benefits our clients.
