Attorney Profile

Arrested for a crime he, admittedly, did commit in 2004, David P. Shapiro experienced firsthand the same fear, uncertainty, and concern for his future and freedom so many of his clients undergo when arrested or under investigation for allegedly committing a crime. That experience motivates him each and every day to provide the best representation possible to any and all who entrust his Firm to handle their criminal defense matter in their time of need.

David has dedicated his career to helping good people get through bad situations and regain control of their future when charged with a crime.

Practicing exclusively criminal defense in San Diego since 2007, David has built one of San Diego's most respected criminal defense firms since opening its doors in 2010. David is also proud to be the Owner and Managing Partner of one of San Diego's largest, and fastest growing (as recognized by Law Firm 500), criminal defense firms, currently equipped with 5 full-time employees. In addition to being the recipient of several peer-reviewed, merit based, awards and accolades (including an AV PreEminent rating) for his work as an attorney, David was recognized in August of 2018 as being one of San Diego's Next Top Business Leaders under 40 and then again in October for being one of San Diego's Top 40 Under 40 Business Leaders by San Diego Metro Magazine.
