About David

I am a Partner at Grant Morris Dodds. In addition to handling the estate planning needs for some of Nevada's wealthiest families, I also regularly speak and write on the topics of trusts and estates, taxation, and asset preservation. I have an AV® Peer Review Rating from Martindale Hubble and have also been recognized as a Mountain States (NV, UT, MT, ID and WY) Rising Star by Super Lawyers®. I was named as one of Nevada's "Legal Elite" by the Nevada Business Magazine, recognizing me as one of "Southern Nevada's Top 100 Attorneys," as well as being named as one of the "Top Lawyers" for Estate Planning by VEGASINC, a weekly business magazine, recognizing him as one of the "Best of the Best in Southern Nevada." I was also named to Desert Companion's "Top Lawyers" list for Estate Planning. I graduated from Southern Utah University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting (Magna Cum Laude), from the University of Utah with a Master of Accountancy, and from the University of Houston with his Doctor of Jurisprudence. Before attending law school I worked for the international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche. It is very important to me to give back to the community. I serve as Vice Chair of the Nevada State College Foundation Board, am on the National Advisory Board for the Southern Utah University School of Business, serve as a Trustee for the Henderson Community Foundation, sit on the Vegas PBS Planned Giving Council, and served as founding Chair of the Gift Planning Advisors. I am licensed to practice law in Nevada and Utah. Click here to see a list of articles published by me.
