Welcome to the web site for the Law Offices of C. Zadik Shapiro. We represent people charged with criminal offenses, related civil
issues (forfeitures and restraining orders), family law matters, administrative law issues and bankruptcy proceedings.
Please feel free to browse this page or to check out our blog located at: TakingTheFifth-ACriminalLawBlog.com.
If you are arrested or being investigated for a crime DO NOT talk to the police or law enforcement officers without talking to a criminal defense attorney first. Whatever you say CAN and WILL be used against you.
Please note that there is no law saying that the police have to give you Miranda warnings before arresting you. You may give your name and show valid ID. But under no conditions should you answer any question without talking to a criminal defense lawyer first. My phone number is 415-771-6174. Put it on your cell phone. Our receptionist or the answering service can find us 24 hours a day.
If Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) contacts you NEVER talk to them without a lawyer present. Feel free to call us if you are contacted.
