Our Lifechangers series presents “Legally Yours” with attorney Jeff Shapiro…an extraordinary behind the scenes look at how the civil legal system works and how you can make it work for you!
How can you sue someone and win? How can you protect yourself from being sued? What are the dynamics of a trial from the attorney’s point of view? What is medical malpractice and what is the basis for bringing a case? What about sexual harassment cases—how do you retain credibility at the workplace when a “Me Too” complaint occurs either from you, or about you? And then there are cases where accidents happen-car accidents, construction site accidents, lead poisoning…all of which require a crash course in how to best proceed!
Jeff Shapiro has been practicing law for 39 years and has tried cases in all of the major courts in the New York metropolitan area, resulting in significant verdicts and settlements. Some of his victories include:
· $22.1 million verdict for surgical error on woman during hysterectomy
· $3 million recovered in workplace injury cases
· $2.4 million settlement for injured laborer
· $1.1 million recovered in medical malpractice case
· $1 million settlement for widower of woman killed
