Arrested for a crime he, admittedly, did commit in 2004, David 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 motivated David to dedicate his career to helping good people regain control of their future when charged with a crime.

In addition to its accolades and accomplishments for his clients inside the courtroom (see ) David's greatest joy is the work he does for our community, via fundraisers, donations of money and time, and simply helping out wherever and whenever there is a need. David's firm has historically been connected with such great organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Second Chance, Genesis Recovery, and San Diego’s Friendship Soccer League.

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. Some of his best accolades include:

2022 Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics Winner

Dui reduced to reckless driving
Mr. Shapiro is a fantastic lawyer. With myself having never dealt with the legal system in any way he provided me with the help I needed and made it very simple and as stress free as possible. I highly recommend anyone who is in need of a great defense attorney to call the law office of David P. Shapiro.
Response from David Shapiro October 30, 2023

A great lawyer, and a respected person in the community.
I hired Mr. Shapiro at a horrible time when my life fell apart very publicly because of a poor choice of mine. David was very helpful at shooting straight with me, as well as teaching me, my wife, and my family about the different nuances, definitions, and options of the legal system (which is a disappointingly designed system). I will never need to, but would hire him again in a heartbeat. He is unbelievably responsive to communication at all times, and his firm is filled with kind, helpful people. If you are looking at this review, best of luck to you, Shapiro is a good choice.

Simply outstanding work!
While I don’t wish anyone to be in my position, if someone needs help, I will always recommend David and his firm. I received the most exceptional legal representation from David throughout this case. David's dedication, expertise, and exceptional communication skills with genuine empathy made a significant difference during what was undoubtedly a stressful and uncertain time for me. Genuine professionalism, integrity, and ethical conduct were evident at every stage of our interactions. Thank you for your outstanding work.

What a Relief!!! Thank You David Shapiro!!
I had the pleasure of working with David Shapiro on my legal case, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only did Mr. Shapiro provided expert guidance and representation, but his team also went above and beyond to ensure my best interests were protected at all times. They were always available to answer my questions and provide updates on the case's progress. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, we were able to achieve a favorable outcome that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend The Law Offices of David Shapiro to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate lawyer.

Life changing , Great lawyer
Mr. Shapiro is always on top of your case, since my initial call with him I felt the support and great communication . During my whole case there was not one day I didn’t know what was going on. Mr. Shapiro and his office have great communication, anytime I had a question either him or his office was there to help. The outcome of my case was GREAT thanks to Mr.Shapiro’s hard work and his passion for his job. My federal job was on the line, thanks to him I am still employed and went from 3 felony charges to a misdemeanor. To top it off even after my case, Mr.Shapiro and his office is still there if I have any questions regarding my case and what I have to do. My family and I are extremely happy with our choice on hiring Mr.Shapiro. I would recommend Mr.Shapiro and his office 100 %. You will not regret on their hard work and the passion they have for their job and your case.

4 felonies DISMISSED
Attorney Shapiro helped me to get my 4 felony charges dismissed via a mental health diversion program. I was arrested and charged during a manic episode, and the program I completed helped to remove the charges. Attorney Shapiro helped me to get my life back and I can’t thank him enough
Response from David Shapiro December 6, 2022
We are so happy to have played a part in getting your life back in your control, Caleb. You put in the work to turn things around and deserved the outright dismissal!

Immense Gratitude for a Phenomenal Attorney
It is hard to capture in words my gratitude for David and his team. From my first conversation with David, I felt hope and reassurance during one of the scariest and most difficult times of my life. David is communicative, prompt, professional and kind. He made himself available when any change or new development were to arise. Each step of the way, David prepared me for exactly what to expect, took the time to walk through all possible scenarios/outcomes and consistently reassured me. Not only is David knowledgeable and experienced, he also treated me with empathy, kindness and understanding. He simply went above and beyond throughout the whole process. While I found myself unsure of many things in the past year, I always felt confident that the outcome of my case was in the best possible hands with David. My case has closed with a very favorable outcome and it's given me a future and hope that I couldn't possibly have had without David's hard work and guidance. I am incredibly grateful - David and his team have set the bar very high.

Remembering my own experience as a "defendant" in criminal court, me and the entire LOODPS team pride ourselves in doing anything and everything within reason we can to put our clients at ease by providing them with the communication needed to enable them to make informed, well thought out, decisions. Sometimes that information may not be what they want to hear, but it is what they need to know in order to start the path toward regaining control of their future. We are happy to help!

He won my case!
I hired Mr. Shapiro as I was in a difficult legal battle with my ex husband. With Mr. Shapiro's swift expertise , he won my case for me. He left no stone unturned and so, there was nothing left for the judge to do but rule in my favor. I will forever be grateful to him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the future.

San Diego's Finest Criminal Defense Law Firm!
David and his firm are absolute professionals. David immediately put me at ease in the first 48 hours after my incident where I was thinking the worst. Hearing his personal experience coupled with his firm's professional track record was a no brainer to retain his services that ultimately led to a successful outcome.

A+++ Criminal Defense Attorney
Mr. Shapiro and his team did an amazing job at exonerating me from my felony charges here in San Diego. They were relentless with the law enforcement and DA offices, and they essentially saved my life and career. The entire office also has impeccable customer service. Would highly recommend these professionals to anyone accused of a crime. A++++

Helpful and understanding when I needed it most
My life was out of control and I made some bad decisions which got me into trouble with the law and I ended up in jail. I went into treatment and got clean when I got out of jail and David took care of all the legal problems I had. Without David I would have been left with multiple felonies on my record. Thanks to him I now have none and was able to regain control of my life.

Outstanding Attorney and Law Firm.
David and his staff were extremely helpful, responsive, and thoroughly professional from the beginning to the conclusion of my son's court case. David took the time to explain every step of the process and I never felt rushed when I had questions for him. He was always generous with his time and I'm very grateful for not only the successful outcome of the case, but the way in which David and his staff treated us. I highly recommend Law Office of David P. Shapiro. I don't think I could have found a better team.

Exceptional! Firm with clients but compassionate
David knows what he is doing. I got myself in some binds and he was firm with me but also showed some heart. He fought hard for me even when I kept making things worse. :)
Response from David Shapiro May 7, 2021
The balance of telling our clients what they need to know and not just what they want to hear, while still being compassionate to the situation, is what we aim for with each individual my firm represents. Glad to have been able to help you through a difficult time!

With Much Gratitude To You & Your Staff
Almost 2 1/2 months ago, I was involved in a possible criminal charge case. It was surreal, life altering & emotionally consuming experience not only for myself but it affected my whole family as well. I prayed to the divine powers above & tried to find a legal support that can support & represent me during this ordeal. Mr Shapiro was referred by a family friend. I could not had a better choice. From my first contact with his office his efficient staff had me scheduled to meet with him via phone within 2 hours. From our first meeting onward, I was totally impressed with the amount of professionalism he had shown. He projected competence & exudes comfidence during our conversation. He had shown a good listening ear to all our worries & concerns. He has gone that extra mile to meet with us outside and off office hours due to COVID imposed restriction. It was tremendously reassuring to meet & talk face to face with someone to whom you are counting on to bring light to my darkness. The best attribute his office has is the amount of compassion projected by conversation whether through phone calls or emails were so much appreciated during the most emotionally draining that I ever had. It just gave me that level of comfort that Mr. Shapiro & his staff cares. Mr. Shapiro’s legal assistant “ Allysa” has the most soothing voice. Every time that I get a call from her it did trigger some palpitation on my part but she has a way of conveying updates from Mr. Shapiro that gives you calm. Today 4/15 is a memorable & tremendously happy day. I received the best news ever in my lifetime, no criminal charges will be filed against me. I thank God for answering to all our prayers and above my greatest gratitude to you Mr. Shapiro, for all the support & guidance you gave me outside the courtroom . Thank you to Alyssa as well.

Very helpful to me
Mr. Shapiro and the people in his office worked hard on my misdemeanor case, working with the city attorney to get me as good a deal as I thought possible. He also recommended a counselor who I found very helpful. I am very grateful to Mr. Shapiro and his office for their efforts on my behalf.
Response from David Shapiro April 15, 2021
Oftentimes the greatest value we provide to our clients is connecting them with the right people (i.e. therapists, treatment programs, etc.) which will help them in so many facets of life aside from the criminal case.

This is the best attorney you could have in San Diego hands down. Mr. Shapiro assisted us in a DUI and I cannot say enough kind words about what he did for my family member. He would respond quickly to our calls and questions. Got us the best possible outcome in our case and could not be more grateful! To have known him is a blessing and I applaud his professionalism. If you need a criminal defense attorney he is your guy, he will give you 110%

Your in the best hands
Mr. Shapiro has exceeded my expectations as a defense attorney. When I first started researching attorney’s it was clear he was very experienced and had great client satisfaction which led me to call for a consultation. Upon meeting Mr. Shapiro what was supposed to be a half hour consult, turned quickly into almost an hour and a half due to the complexity of the case. But he patiently listened, and gave clear and concise advice. He and his amazing team are always excessible via phone or email to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you are involved in a criminal case there is no one else you will want in your corner.

Didn’t hire him but he still gave me great advice!
Contact him first! *And then read his book! It is the best book that anyone can read. It prepares one for what I thought would never happen to me. I did not end up hiring him however, he still saw me and gave me great advice.

Sorry it didn't work out where my Firm could take your case, but glad you found the book useful! All the best.

Quick Resolve
I was upset and in a panic after my DUI. I called many firms and spoke to dozens of paralegals as well as attorneys, they were all unclear of what needed to be done and the fees were way to high. I reached Davis Shapiro’s off and his paralegal gave me a checklist of things to accomplish and set a quick appointment for me to meet with the attorney. Speaking with David Shapiro gave me reassurance and he handled everything from start to finish. He’s fees weren’t outrageous and he resolved my case in less than a month. I kept my license and my DUI was dismissed. I hope to never need him again, but if the situation arises, I know who to call. Definitely recommend this firm.

Response from David Shapiro April 21, 2019
The key to this review is how the Firm's process worked to the benefit of the (potential) client, minimizing their panic and frustration during such a difficult time, as opposed to quoting a cookie cutter fee over the phone within the first 10 minutes of speaking as so many others do.
