David Carey Shapiro

Owner / Founder / Attorney
Scottsdale, Arizona

A native of Scottsdale, Shapiro attended The University of Arizona, graduated cum laude, and obtained a minor certificate in entrepreneurship at The University of Arizona's renowned McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship. He then attended Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Connor School of Law from 2007-2010. Shapiro was destined to be a civil litigator. Even during law school, Shapiro tried (and won) multiple jury trials. He also clerked for several Superior Court judges assigned to the civil bench. Upon graduating law school and passing the bar, Shapiro worked for a prominent personal injury trial attorney before opening his own firm in 2017.

Over the years, Shapiro has obtained countless multi-million-dollar results for his clients in all types of personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Shapiro is not afraid to go to trial and has done so multiple times.

In David's free time, he enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Elizabeth, their new twin boys, Max and George, and their two puppies, Moe and Harper. David and Elizabeth enjoy volunteering with charitable causes dear to their heart, wine-tasting, traveling, cooking and watching Game of Thrones.

If David Shapiro Law, PLLC, takes your case, you can take solace in knowing that not only do you have a skilled litigator by your side but also that there are no upfront fees or costs during the legal process. This includes court costs, medical record fees and fees charged by the experts we often use to build your case. And we only get paid our fees when our clients receive compensation.
