Law Office of David P. Shapiro

Are you a person that embodies the principle that “excellence is a habit and not an act?” Are you looking to find a home with a rapidly growing, San Diego-based, law firm? Do you personify our mission of honesty and transparency, setting new standards, and always doing the right thing?

We are seeking an experienced professional who can take on a wide variety of responsibilities with this management-level position that will work directly with our Owner to oversee the administrative and business aspects of running the Firm. 

Since 2010, our firm has helped good people regain control of their future when charged with a crime, providing unsurpassed service to those who call upon us to help them during what is likely the most stressful times in their lives. We strive to always deliver excellence and create a positive and lasting impact on the San Diego community beyond criminal defense. We revel in being unique in the way we approach everything related to criminal defense and business, and were recently named a 2022 Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics Winner. 


  • Overseeing the Firm’s case management, contact management, and document management
  • Administering payroll (verifying work hours, leave time, overtime) and benefits
  • Managing and leading the non-lawyer support staff and most vendors
  • Creating, implementing, improving, and ensuring adherence to the Firm’s policies and procedures to reflect the Firm’s high standards
  • Preparing dashboards and status reports for the Owner and future Legal Administrator relating to the Firm’s key performance indicators
  • Managing projects to ensure they are timely and successfully resolved on budget
  • Managing the office facilities and office supply inventory
  • Assisting the Owner and future Legal Administrator with recruitment, hiring, staffing, and general human resources operations
  • Embracing attention to detail, transparency, and accountability


This is not an entry-level position. Nor is it a virtual or hybrid position. 

  • Prior supervisory experience at a law firm is a must. 
  • Knowledge of criminal defense will be helpful. 
  • You must be able not only to adapt to change but to lead it. 
  • You must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. 

$80,000 - $95,000 yearly
