David’s motto “EXPERIENCExceptional” drives everything he does. For example, David works hard to “be responsive” to his clients, rather than just “generally available”. This means he proactively engages in conversation with every client on a regular basis to discuss their case and personally learn how each client is doing. He strives to develop a case strategy, theme and story that moves the case forward and justifies the verdict or positive result sought. David finds the facts that really matter and presents them to the jury in a simple and understandable way so that each juror can truly relate to the issues and facts that make up each case. While most cases settle before trial, David believes this approach provides significant benefits to his client, whether the case ultimately resolves by settlement or verdict.
David currently lives in Palm Harbor with his wife, Jennifer. He has three adult children and three grandchildren, with whom he enjoys spending much of his personal time with. David graduated from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, and Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida. While at Stetson, David was a member of Stetson’s Law Review. He has been active in the local bar association and has served as an officer and chair of the St. Petersburg Bar Trial Practice Section. He also volunteers as a Guardian Ad Litem.
