About David

As a lawyer, my goal is to practice law at the highest levels of integrity, legal ability, and commitment to my clients. My law practice provides legal representation for individuals and families in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. In law school, I studied to become the kind of lawyer who made an important difference in the lives of my clients. I aspired to stand up to large corporate interests and others that were unwilling to take responsibility for injuries and damages they caused. I now have more than 28 years experience fighting for individuals and families in state and federal courts in Texas. I have handled thousands of cases and obtained millions of dollars in damages for my injured clients. I have been fortunate to receive recognition by other attorneys for very high legal ability and ethical standards (Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory). Recently, I was recognized by the National Trial Lawyers as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in North Texas. I completed mediator’s training at the SMU Center for Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management. I have served as a mediator and successfully mediated the settlement of over 50 lawsuits. My experience as a mediator has helped me to be a more effective advocate for my clients during mediation conferences. My interest in helping others led me to become active in many community service positions. I was appointed, by the Denton County Commissioners Court, to serve as Chair of the Denton County Child Protective Services Board. I have also served, for over 15 years, as an adult volunteer leader for the Boy Scouts of America.
