David has developed significant trial, mediation, and arbitration experience in a variety of legal specializations including personal injury and wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, construction defects, professional liability and commercial litigation. He is frequently retained as co-counsel in cases involving issues of medical and legal malpractice, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, premises liability, product liability and business/commercial disputes.
A good trial attorney’s strength is the ability to understand and then clearly, simply and passionately present complex technical and legal concepts to a jury. David has been lead counsel in many jury trials throughout Florida and has been fortunate to obtain numerous multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements. He has settled close to two thousand cases in pre-suit and mediation settings. Nonetheless, David eschews the profession’s typical steep fees in favor of flexible and economical arrangements that make sense for everyone involved.
David is committed to sharing his extensive background as widely as possible, often by supporting other lawyers who can benefit from additional “bench depth.” Support is completely individualized, and can be as selective or comprehensive in scope as the co-counselling attorney finds useful.
