  • David Philip Shapiro

    I had the privilege and opportunity to work for Kerry from 2007-2009 at his criminal defense firm in San Diego. Aside from being a good friend, Kerry is an even better criminal practitioner. His likeable personality shines through in a courtroom and I have seen him obtain some amazing results for his clients throghout the time I have know him. Kerry still maintains the utmost respect of judges, prosecutors, and court staff to this day.
