About Me

I have represented clients in claims involving wrongful death and serious injury in a broad range of civil practice, including claims resulting from defective consumer products, motor vehicles and industrial equipment, medical negligence, construction site negligence, motor vehicle accidents, and other complex litigation claims.  In addition, I have represented clients in such diverse areas of civil practice as NASD arbitration proceedings relating to the WorldCom corporate scandal.

I joined Sugarman as an associate in 2003 and became a principal of the firm in 2011.

  • Eric J Dinnocenzo

    David McCormack is the lawyer who I refer all of my Mass. personal injury cases to. I had the pleasure of being his colleague at Sugarman, and I just really can't say enough good things about him. I can attest from first-hand experience that David is a truly excellent lawyer. He is extremely smart, knowledgeable, respected, has a strong moral compass, and is devoted to and really goes the distance for his clients -- who, by the way, all like him very much.

  • Adam J. Troupe

    I would recommend Sugarman to anyone looking for a firm that specializes in personal injury law. As a practicing attorney, I have worked closely in conjunction with Dave McCormack and the other members of the Sugarman team for several years. They display a level of professionalism and expertise that is comforting to someone who refers them cases. Whenever I have sent them a case, they respond immediately, and get in touch with the client that day. As someone who has both referred cases, and accepted referrals from Sugarman and other sources, I feel this is one of the most important qualities that a firm can display. This, along with the exceptional results they achieve for their clients earns them my highest recommendation.
