The services of attorney Richard Shapiro have successfully filed a property tax appeal on our behalf for 3 consecutive cycles and we are very grateful for their assistance!

For years and years I would get these notes in the mail from attorneys offering to help get my property taxes reduced and I threw them away. In 2015 I decided to go for it and pay $50 to Richard Shapiro + a percentage of whatever they can save me. And by golly it worked. I have saved over $3000 and have paid Richard Shapiro $700 of that savings. And the customer service of Richard and his team including Erika in billing has been nothing sort of fantastic. I highly recommend them!

My investment group owned a vacant strip mall in Chicago. We did not realize (until we contacted Mr. Shapiro's office) that we were entitled to a huge tax savings due to the fact that it was unoccupied for four years. Not only did we receive a property tax savings for the current year, the firm was able to file something called a "certificate of error" going back another three years, realizing a gross savings of over $27,000. He sure knows this business!

Can't say enough about Mischa. If there was a scale above five (5) stars, she would earn ten. I have used this law firm for years and each and every time I am in need of assistance, consultation, and/or advice, Mischa never fails. She is courteous, professional, and genuine and always goes above and beyond to help me with matters I know very little about. The service that she delivers is amazing and she is an excellent resource each and every time I have a question or need a resolution. Thank you Mischa. You are remarkable!

I have relied on the Shapiro Group to keep my real estate taxes in line. I feel that I can relax because they are on the job. I feel confident that they are on the job and on top of their game.

I am very satisfied with the service Mr. Shapiro has given me through the years we have been with him as a client. My prior efforts in dealing with the Cook County Assessor's office were not successful but he has been able to lower our assessment to match similar properties in our neighborhood.


This is the third time that Richard Shapiro has been able to reduce my property taxes. Property taxes are very high in my area, and I was pleased that Richard Shapiro was successful again. When I first moved to my house, I got quite a few letters and postcards from firms offering to try to reduce my taxes. I'm glad I chose Richard Shapiro.

Thank you to Richard Shapiro and his law firm for the outstanding representation they have provided me on both my commercial and residential property tax appeals over the years. I’m always happy to pay the bill due to all the savings. They’ve won numerous appeals for us on our 4 properties and I am consistently satisfied with their work. I will continue to refer him to my friends and family looking for assistance...

Richard Shapiro, Attorney is a competent and honest property tax appeal attorney. He saved me over $700.00 on my 2013 property taxes and his fee was more than reasonable. It was a painless process from start to finish. I found him on the Better Business Bureau website when I was looking for someone to handle my appeal.


I recently used Richard Shapiro to contest my property taxes and they did an amazing job and saving me money on my property taxes. They have a polished service where I called them up, they paired me with a representative on their team and they walked me through the entire process. In 2014 their payment structure was a small deposit ($50 at the time) and 50% of the first years winnings. In total I had to pay out around $370 which is a fair price when dealing with any law firm.

They did a great job looking at how my home was assessed and realized that the assessor was counting my attic space as livable square footage when it isn't since it's covered in 12" of blow in insulation. I filled out a few forms, got it notarized and they took over from there. A few months later, I got a letter in the mail stating that my assessment was lowered and that I'd see a tax savings. I was more than happy to send them a check for their services.

Next time, when I feel my property taxes are increasing more than they should, I'll definitely come back to Richard Shapiro and his team to help me make sure I"m paying my fair amount.

Attorney Shapiro and Staff made appealing my property taxes easy, painless, and their approach is obviously very effective! They were able to achieve a reduction both times they filed an appeal on my behalf! I'm very pleased with their services and will continue to use them!
