David Shapiro Recognized as The Daily Record’s 2023 Top Leader in Law

David Shapiro, Corporate Principal

Paley Rothman is proud to recognize that David Shapiro, a principal with the firm, has been recognized as The Daily Record's 2023 Top Leader in Law. 

Annually, The Daily Record solicits nominations of lawyers and judges in the legal industry that serve their clients and the community in exceptional ways. The nominees are reviewed by a panel of community based judges and one representative from The Daily Record.

We’re excited to share that David P. Shapiro was recognized as one of 19 recipients (out of 180 nominations) to receive the 2023 Leadership in the Law Award.

In addition, once the recipients of the Leadership in the Law Award are selected, The Daily Record asks all of the awardees to vote amongst themselves for which among them should be awarded The Daily Record's 2023 Top Leader in Law. This additional recognition serves to identify the person who the 2023 awardees think most exemplifies a leader in the law -- someone who most exemplifies the combination of professional achievement, community involvement and mentorship that all of the honorees have. The recipient of this Top Leader in the Law is a closely guarded secret, not being announced until the end of the live award ceremony. We are excited to share that, at the end of the award ceremony on April 25, 2023, David P. Shapiro was also recognized as The Daily Record’s 2023 Top Leader in the Law!
