David C. Shapiro is the founder of his own law firm located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Providing dedicated representation to clients throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area, he focuses his practice exclusively on plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation, assisting people who have suffered losses due to the negligence of other parties. The types of cases that Mr. Shapiro has handled have involved surgical errors and other forms of medical malpractice, defective products, burn injuries, premises liability and motor vehicle accidents. Throughout his career, Mr. Shapiro has been instrumental in obtaining numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and jury awards on behalf of his clients.

A Scottsdale native, Mr. Shapiro attended The University of Arizona as an undergraduate, receiving a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in 2007. He also obtained a certificate in entrepreneurship from the school's McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship. Mr. Shapiro then went on to attend the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, where he participated in its criminal practice clinic and served clerkships with judges on the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2010. Admitted to practice before all Arizona state courts, Mr. Shapiro is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.

In order to stay abreast of current developments in wrongful death and personal injury litigation, Mr. Shapiro is an active participant in several professional organizations.
