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 embody 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 as our next legal assistant or paralegal. To be successful in this position requires the right combination of communication skills, empathy, and the ability to investigate the root of our (potential) clients’ problems.

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. We were also recently named a 2022 Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics Winner.



Daily tasks shall include, but not be limited to:

  • Implementing, improving, and ensuring adherence to the Firm’s policies and procedures to reflect the Firm’s high standards
  • Conveying confidence in person and on the phone, demonstrating exceptional communication skills and an ability to develop rapport with prospective clients, current clients, and referral sources
  • Embracing attention to detail, transparency, and accountability
  • Strong multitasking and task management skills
  • Self-motivated team player with a strong work ethic
  • Treating a client or task at 5:15 P.M. on a Friday with the same care and compassion as one Monday morning at 9:15 A.M.
  • Data entry using common web-based formats
  • Travel to Federal or State Courthouses for discovery pick up or filings


This is not an entry-level position. Nor is it a virtual or hybrid position. We have a beautiful office and you will need to be there to succeed in this role. 

Candidates must have

  • A strong customer service background.
  • Prior law firm experience is a must.
  • Spanish language fluency is preferred but not necessary to apply.
