About Our Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Law Firm

At Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton, we focus exclusively on personal injury law and have successfully represented hundreds of victims over decades, including victims of nursing home abuse and/or neglect.  We cannot legally state we are the best nursing home abuse law firm in Virginia, though we can tell you that many of our lawyers have been selected for the highest honors in the field of personal injury law.

Two of our lawyers are currently listed among the “Best Lawyers in America” in injury law practice areas (2010 Edition), and 3 of our attorneys are recognized as Virginia “Super Lawyers” (since 206, Law & Politics Magazine). Our firm is listed as a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News & World Report (since 2011).

Three of the attorneys at our law firm also have the highest available “AV” rating from Martindale-Hubbell lawyer rating service, meaning we have a reputation among Hampton Roads judges and lawyers for very high to preeminent legal skill and the highest level of ethics in our work.

In 2005, our firm was the first plaintiff’s injury law firm in Virginia selected for membership in a prestigious international group of highly ethical law firms, called Primerus. This organization carefully screens law firms and the Wall Street Journal reported “[Primerus] wants to offer consumers a way to pick the good from the bad by establishing a sort of ‘Good Housekeeping’ seal of approval for attorneys.”

Legal awards aside, our firm prides itself on quality, effective legal representation. Below are testimonials provided to us by former clients:

“I was injured in a car accident and a friend told me I needed to get in contact with the Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton law firm. I’m glad I took him up on his suggestion. I was represented by Virginia Beach injury lawyer Kevin Duffan. Kevin and his staff were courteous, efficient, and highly effective. I am very satisfied with the result he got for me and I would recommend his services to friends and family.” Larry H.

“I was hurt in an accident and needed a lawyer. I asked a family member and he recommended Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton. Emily Mapp Brannon was my attorney and she did a fantastic job. I felt like she really cared about my case and the staff with the firm were extremely helpful. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and would recommend the firm to family and friends.” B. Thomas

“I heard about the law firm from my brother and am so thankful he recommended them to me. I was not expecting to get any compensation from my claim, so the attorneys who handled my case definitely surpassed my expectations! I was also impressed by the responsiveness of the attorneys. They returned my calls promptly and the staff in the office was kind and extremely helpful. If I ever need a personal injury lawyer again, I will call the law firm of Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton right away.” Susan
