This group does not even deserve one star!! I had two cases with this group of incompetent people. I hired David Goldman upon being new to the Sarasota area. I had 2 crashes within 2 years and SGBW had both cases for 4 years and never settled anything. The office staff was rude and pretty much nasty when I would call for updates on my cases. I was kept in the dark as to what was going on and never got anything settled. I fired this group and went to Luhrsen Law Group...who settled both cases for full amount in 6 months. Do not hire anyone from this group. And SGBW do not respond to my post. You know I was a client and you did nothing but waste my time and almost cost me my job by not getting me help!

Response from the owner - 9 months ago
We regret that you had a negative experience with our firm. We always try to be polite and prompt in returning all phone calls and correspondence. Sometimes it does take time for cases to be litigated to their conclusion. No matter what problems arise, we will always have an experienced attorney address all issues in a professional manner. Nevertheless, we recognize that you cannot make everyone happy all of the time, but are glad that this person’s case was ultimately resolved to their satisfaction.

David Shapiro has represented me in a civil case. Throughout the case David Shapiro was extremely professional. His knowledge of the law is superb. He handled my case in a timely matter and at all times I felt he was in control of the situation. I could not have gotten better representation. He definitely cared about me and wanted the best outcome for me. He is one of the finest attorneys in Sarasota. His credentials bear this out and apposing attorneys hold him in high regard. I cannot say enough good things about David Shapiro and hopefully I will not need an attorney any time soon but would definitely only use him

We have used this firm on a few occasions. The attorneys are responsive and always call back in a timely manner when a message is left. All matters were handled professionally and promptly. Their expertise has made them a resource when legal council is needed. David Shapiro has handled most of our work and his knowledge of the law is impressive and has always handled our cases to our satisfaction.

This experience was a first for me and went something like this. QUICK, PAINLESS, DIRECT to the POINT!!! My thoughts and views were executed to a T. I was NEVER pushed or forced to do something I did not want to do. All available options were outlined and described in full. If I ever need help with a situation again, it will be this firm. Great experience, very professional and friendly

We had an elderly Aunt who had a debilitating accident. I tried contacting a few attorneys, locally, who would not accept her case, due to her age and circumstances of her fall. Mr. Shapiro was recommended to us, even though his practice was in Florida. He went to work for her cause, spending numerous hours negotiating a settlement and successfully settled the case. He was willing to go to trial. We were more than satisfied with the professionalism, dogmatic approach and sensitivity he displayed. He went above and beyond. I, and my entire family, would highly recommend him to anyone who requires an outstanding, professional attorney. Bob Greeley Retired NYPD, Real Property Administrator, Author

I was involved in two separate car accidents in two years' time, each caused by an at-fault driver. David Shapiro represented my interests each time. I found David and his team to be extremely responsive, knowledgeable and compassionate. His ability to navigate through the process and his prowess in negotiating with the insurance companies made for a timely and very satisfactory result for me. I never felt like just a number, and I know that David and his staff really cared about my medical care and recovery. I hope to never again be a victim in a car accident, but I would not hesitate to recommend this Firm to someone in need who wants a proactive, effective and personal approach to their legal representation.

After an auto accident involving an injury, my father and I worked with Mr. Shapiro and Mr. Goldman and had a great experience doing so. The entire office is punctual, friendly and orderly. Mr. Shapiro and Mr. Goldman both have a to the point and say it like it is approach and that is magnificent. I will contact them again if I should ever need legal assistance.

The International Trade Hub, whose office is at the Port of Manatee's Intermodal Building, hosted an international trade event matching Southwest Florida businesses to international businesses from France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The International Trade Hub placed Florida business owners together with trade representative of oversea manufacturers, high-tech companies and services businesses. The goal is to encourage international growth and to boost trade for companies already in Manatee and Sarasota counties. This is a great time to do international business as the dollar is increasing in value against the international markets and the promise of greater peace in Europe.

Eva Gonzalez, President of the Gulf Coast Latin Chamber and Paralegal to David Goldman, Esq., of Shapiro Goldman Babboni & Walsh attended this cutting-edge international event.

In the last year there have been so many vehicle recalls that even myself and my devoted staff are having trouble keeping up with them. It is my strongest suggestion to all my friends that for the sake of yourself and your love ones that you go to this website, safercar.gov, enter your Vehicle ID # and check to see if your vehicle has a pending recall.
Please do not rely on the manufacture and/or your dealership to inform you of these recalls. Many of the pending recalled defects create a very serious hazard to yourself and to your loved ones.
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT POST I’VE EVER DONE!

Laurie Myers, paralegal at Shapiro, Goldman, Babboni & Walsh, and other local paralegals volunteered as timekeepers at the 2016 12th Judicial Circuit High School Mock Trial competition held at the Judge Lynn N. Silvertooth Judicial Center in Sarasota. Booker High School, Manatee School for the Arts, Riverview High School and St. Stephen’s Episcopal all had teams participate in the event. The competition was fierce, and in the end, St. Stephen’s won the event with Riverview coming in second.

When an automobile accident occurs, one of the first things that everyone, be it victims, lawyers, insurance companies or the law will want to know is the cause of the accident. There are only a few recurring causes for accidents in most automobile cases, and while drunk driving is, thankfully, continuing to decrease as a common cause, distracted driving, for better or for worse, is on the rise, seemingly getting ready to take drunk driving’s place in the most common automobile-related tragedy on the road.

Toyota recalls Avalons, Camrys due to airbag defect.

The AP (4/13) reports that Toyota is recalling 60,000 Avalon and Camry 2016 models in North America due to an air bag defect. The AP adds Toyota “says the cars have a system that activates or deactivates the front passenger air bags depending on the weight of the passenger. In some of the affected vehicles the system was improperly calibrated, so the front passenger air bags and knee air bags may not deploy.” Toyota said it is unclear whether the defect has attributed to any injuries.

If you bring these items to your consultation, your lawyer will be able to provide you with a better idea of what to expect from your claim. These are all documents you will eventually have to prepare anyways, so it is best to get them ready early so you can expedite your suit.
So you’ve had an auto accident and have made an appointment for a consultation with a personal injury attorney. To make the most out of this consultation, there are a few things you want to prepare
