Relying on years of litigation and trial experience, David works to develop a case strategy that moves each case forward and justifies the verdict or settlement sought.

Relying on years of litigation and trial experience, David works hard to develop a case strategy and theme that moves each case forward and justifies the verdict or achievement sought.  The case strategy is supported by facts obtained through directed discovery and comprehensive pretrial preparation.  David finds the facts that really matter and presents them to the jury in a simple and understandable way.  While most cases settle before trial, David believes this approach provides significant benefits to each client, whether the case ultimately resolves by settlement or verdict.

David is a native of St. Petersburg and currently resides in Palm Harbor, Florida with his wife, Jennifer and two dogs Piper and Chief (yes we are FSU fans).   He has three grown children and three grandkids.   David graduated from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and Stetson University College of Law.  While at Stetson, David was a member of Stetson’s Law Review.

David has been active in the local bar associations and has served as an officer and chair of the St. Petersburg Bar Trial Practice Section.  He also serves as a Guardian Ad Litem.
