If you or a family member has been questioned, accused, cited, charged or arrested for any crime, it is important for you to know your rights. Only by speaking to an experienced criminal defense attorney can you ensure your rights are protected and your exposure to prosecution is limited.
At the Law Offices of David B. Shapiro, llc, I help my clients by providing them with the information they need to understand the law and make the critical decisions for developing a successful defense strategy.
For more than twenty years I have had the privilege of protecting the rights of the criminally accused in the Justice, District and Federal Courts of this state. The American Trial Lawyers Association has recognized my accomplishments and named me as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Utah. I was selected by my peers to serve as the President of the Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and served as a Board Member or Officer of that organization for nearly a decade. I am committed to improving my profession by protecting the rights of all citizens I have successfully represented individuals facing a wide variety of criminal charges:
Drug Crimes: I investigate all aspects of a drug arrest to determine whether my clients have been the victims of unlawful search or seizure in connection with charges of possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, or crack, intent to sell, or possession of drug paraphernalia.
DUI and Motor Vehicle Offenses: Drivers need to understand the full consequences of a DUI or motor vehicle offense. Conviction for DUI can result in jail time, heavy fines, license revocation, enormous increase in insurance rates and even loss of employment. I defend Utah drivers arrested for DUI or cited for driving on a revoked license, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, speeding, or operating a vehicle with no proof of insurance.
Property Crimes: If you have been charged or suspected of any property crime, including theft, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of stolen property, criminal mischief, fraud, forgery, shoplifting, financial transaction card offenses, identify theft, criminal non-support, workers compensation fraud, unemployment insurance fraud, or employee theft or embezzlement, it is critical to consult with an experienced property crime lawyer as quickly as possible.
Assault and Violent Crimes: Conviction for assault or any crime of violence, especially any crime identified as "Domestic Violence" is serious. In additional to jail time, there are serious collateral consequences that affect your ability to possess a firearm, maintain your professional license, rent a home, adopt or care for a foster child, maintain or adjust immigration status, or obtain employment. I handle all cases involving domestic violence, homicide, criminal sexual conduct, rape, battery, aggravated assault, assault, probation violations, juvenile crime, and immigration issues. For anyone facing a criminal charge, I have the experience necessary to provide a straightforward assessment of your legal situation and handle all the details of your case including hearings, court dates, trial, sentencing and probation.
