About our Washington, DC: office

Shapiro, Lifschitz & Schram, P.C. is a Washington, DC-based law firm with a unique flair. We apply our experience, infuse our passion, and deliver solutions for our clients in the areas of business, construction, real estate and commercial litigation. Years of practice in big firms have shaped our depth of knowledge in precise areas of law, but we've chosen a boutique environment for a reason: we like our clients and our clients like us, and we've learned that working the way they need us to translates into success for them and us. It is a realization gained from true experience.

We gain strong satisfaction from what we do, and our passion for our practice frees us to fully commit ourselves to our client's objective. One example is our national construction practice. We are serious about construction law, but it is our enthusiasm for it, combined with our extensive experience in private sector and government contracting, dispute resolution and trial work, and international construction transactions and disputes, that elevates us to one of the top law firms in the field.

Solutions drive us. We understand that the practice of law is an art form, so we generate customized methods that lead to winning results. Our accomplished attorneys have a proven track record of success representing clients in sophisticated deals and big-ticket, complex litigation at both the trial and appellate levels, capable of employing whatever innovations are appropriate to achieve the desired result. With state-of-the-art document management and electronic discovery techniques, sophisticated graphics capabilities, and our best resource smart lawyers and staff we push the envelope to create client-centered solutions, close deals and win cases.

At Shapiro, Lifschitz & Schram, we are that rare breed of attorney, the type that are creative in deals and actually try cases, prefer personable relationships with clients, and know the law well enough to have fun practicing it. Whether we're serving as outside counsel to negotiate a sophisticated business contract, trying a complex case in court, or working with a client to develop a real estate project, we work harder, longer and smarter to make our clients winners. It's a big idea from a small firm, and it infuses our every encounter.
