As a Court Appointed Receiver I need counsel on some cases. I primarily work with Duncan Barber of Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson. His ability to understand the case and what needs to be done is what makes him so efficient with his billing time. The complaints he drafts spell out all the relevant matters, and he gets the Judge to understand the real issues in the case. I would absolutely recommend this firm.

We had a construction defect case going in multiple directions, with numerous carriers and needed a firm to bring the case back in line.

We had a great experience with Steve and Dina from Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson. They were sensitive to the fact that all their billing to us will be out of pocket and it was a big expense to us. Throughout the negotiation, we got updates on the status and we were advised on when strategy should change and more pressure should be applied as court date was close. We ended up reaching an agreement with the insurance companies and all other parties. We are very happy with the service and the way it was carried out, we will definitely use Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson again, for cases like these and for preventive measures.
