s I’ve discussed in the past, I make it my mission to find the right people.

litigation. That’s why you go to law school — so you can go to court and argue in front of a judge.

From our attorneys to the team running the office, every person here is the best at what they do. This allows me to rest easy knowing that, even if I am not managing a case myself, my clients are always in good hands. The newest lawyer in the office is Jeffrey Best, who joins us in sunny Florida after a long career up north. In his brief time with our firm, Jeffrey has already done great work and confirmed I made the right decision bringing him on. This month, I want to let Jeffrey introduce himself in his own words. All my life, I have loved sports. Growing up, I was on almost every team at my school, but football was my best and favorite. I played offensive line, and I grew up working as part of a team. Being a lawyer and working at a firm always reminds me of being on the field. Cases aren’t won by a lone attorney, no matter how smart they are. It takes a team working together to see their clients get the justice they deserve. I’ve never been content to sit behind a desk pushing paper. I got into personal injury law because I saw that it was where I could do the most good. When people get into bad situations, they need help to make it out alright. They need someone who knows how to talk to a judge, interview doctors, and persuade a jury to achieve the best results they’re entitled to. Plus, I enjoy -Marc Shapiro

After graduating law school in 1995, I got my license to practice in Indiana and Illinois. I ran firms in each state for several years. Not long ago, my family relocated to Naples after my wife was offered a job in the medical field. After the move, I briefly switched gears in my

career. But, It didn’t last long, as I knew I needed to get back into law. It’s what I’m good at and what I know how to do.

To practice law in Florida, I needed to retake the bar exam. It had been over 20 years since I’d been to law school, so sitting down to take that test again was more than a little intimidating. But I studied hard and passed. Now I’m here and raring to go. I joined Marc and the firm in June of 2018. Sometimes I feel like a brand-new lawyer but with 23 years of experience. Things are a little different here in Florida, but I love it. We have great clients and an awesome staff. I look forward to seeing what this team can accomplish together.
