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. Before entering law school, Shahin was a competitive boxer but has since taken the fight to the courtroom instead of the boxing ring.

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.

At MayesTelles, he aggressively advocates for his clients in a variety of criminal matters. Through his unrelenting determination to obtaining the best result for his clients, Shahin was awarded a spot on the Thomson Reuters/Superlawyers 2023 Southwest Rising Stars List. This recognition is awarded to no more than 2.5% of eligible attorneys in the Southwest United States.

During the height of the pandemic, he worked extensively with the Department of Economic Security, and was successfully able to reverse numerous determinations of overpayment and fraud from both Pandemic Aid and Unemployment Benefits. In his free time, Shahin enjoys spending time with his two dogs, a boxer named Damon and a French bulldog named Dwayne.
