Shahin Damoui is a criminal defense attorney at Mayes Telles PLLC. As a native of Iran, Shahin has demonstrated an unrelenting passion for defending those most vulnerable and in the most need. This passion afforded Shahin the opportunity to graduate from the University of California, Irvine, with a degree in Political Science and International Relations. Shahin then obtained his law degree from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
While attending the Sandra Day Connor College of Law, Shahin gained invaluable experience and practice as a Rule 38-certified intern in the criminal division of the Office of the Arizona Attorney General. During his time at the Attorney General, Shahin gained important insight from a prosecutor’s perspective, which has ultimately afforded him a more comprehensive understanding and robust relationship with his clients as a defense attorney.
Prior to joining MayesTelles, Shahin defended clients as an attorney for a private criminal defense firm specializing in major felony and death penalty cases. Shahin had the unique experience of working directly on criminal trials involving death penalty eligibility and first-degree murder.
Before entering law school, Shahin was a competitive boxer but has since taken the fight to the courtroom instead of the boxing ring.
In his free time, Shahin enjoys spending time with his two dogs, a boxer named Damon and a French bulldog named Dwayne.
