Everyone Deserves Access to the Top Attorney
As practicing attorneys, our friends and family are constantly asking us to recommend lawyers for cases that we don’t personally handle. Oftentimes, the question is, "If you were injured through no fault of your own, who would you turn to?"
We know that the most respected and most successful attorneys often aren’t the ones generally known to the public. Instead, these "hidden superstars" get most of their clients by referral. These attorneys aren’t afraid of going to trial – because when they do, they often get verdicts that are much higher than the settlement offer.
And the best thing about these attorneys - they don’t charge anything unless you win. That means there are no fees out of pocket. It means everyone can afford them.
That's why we started RightCounsel – to give everyone access to the top attorneys when they need help the most. And being a good attorney means more than simply getting results. It means providing personalized, first-class service - regardless of where you live or how much you earn. It means being responsive. It means treating everyone openly, fairly and with respect. Because if you’ve been seriously hurt, you don’t want to make
Robert Shapiro, Founder
Internationally renowned attorney Robert Shapiro is the founder of RightCounsel. He is most famous for assembling the legal "dream team" that defended OJ Simpson in his criminal trial. After the trial, he steered his practice away from criminal defense and towards civil litigation, where he has represented a number of high-profile clients including Steve Wynn and Diamond Resorts International. Mr. Shapiro is a founder of LegalZoom.com. He has authored two books, "The Search for Justice" and "Misconceptions."" He also wrote a children's book on the negative effects of drug use, which is available free-of-charge to schools across the country. Mr. Shapiro has been married for more than 40 years to his wife, Linell and has a son, Grant. His other son, Brent, died of chemical dependency disease in 2005, prompting Mr. Shapiro to found The Brent Shapiro Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to raise drug and alcohol awareness in the wake of this tragedy.

Brian Liu, Partner
Brian Liu has been a practicing attorney for over 20 years. Before helping to start RightCounsel, Brian founded LegalZoom.com with Robert Shapiro. Brian was as the first CEO of LegalZoom and served in that position for over seven years. Since 2007, Brian has been elected as the Chairman of the Board of LegalZoom.
Brian started LegalZoom with the goal of democratizing law. Each year, millions of Americans suffer when a simple legal document could have protected them. But for most people, legal access seemed out of reach.
He knew there had to be an easier, more affordable way to take care of common legal matters. And from the beginning, he sought to set new standards for convenience and service in an industry not typically known for great customer care.
Now, Brian is bringing the same passion and purpose to RightCounsel, because he believes that everyone should have the right to get exceptional representation if they’ve been seriously hurt through no fault of their own. Accolades
