If you are facing a criminal charge, you have questions, and you need (and deserve) answers. Your choice of legal representation is where you will look for those answers. At the Law Office of David P. Shapiro, we provide guidance, reassurance, and excellent legal representation to clients charged with criminal offenses. Here are some of the reasons why David Shapiro enjoys his reputation as one of the top criminal lawyers in the greater San Diego area:
- A track record of success. While past success does not guarantee future results, a proven track record of success is the best indication of the worth of a criminal defense attorney. David Shapiro is a highly skilled and successful defense attorney in handling criminal defense cases throughout San Diego County. He has received recognition from satisfied clients and enjoys a reputation among his peers in the legal arena as one of the most skilled and sought-after criminal defense attorneys in Southern California.
- Dual track approach. Mr. Shapiro takes steps to insure that his clients are placed in the best position possible, given the circumstances of their case, by utilizing an approach, known as dual-tacking. He investigates the facts, while at the same time mitigating the damage which is already done. While we hear of attorneys being aggressive, a hard-line approach may not be appropriate if it is not supported by the facts in your case, or if your attorney is too inexperienced and in over their head to know what they are doing. This “aggressive approach” is taken many times with the courts and the prosecutors, while ignoring the consequences to the client.
- Honesty and straight talk. At the Law Office of David P. Shapiro, you might not like what you hear, but it will be an honest and forthright assessment of any and all realistic outcomes of your case. Mr. Shapiro views it as his professional and ethical obligation to give honest counsel and, in the words of Aaron Neville, to “tell it like it is.” David is highly skilled at walking his clients through the criminal court process, ensuring they will know what to expect at each and every court appearance, while providing accurate, honest, and extraordinary legal counsel advocating on their behalf and bringing all the facts to light, not just those depicted in the police reports.
