About Me

I have been in private practice for over thirteen years and I concentrate in the areas of criminal defense and family law.  Prior to my private practice I was an Assistant District Attorney with the Westchester County District Attorney's Office.  


I take great pride in my commitment to my clients and the fact that I treat every case as if it is my only case.  It is extremely important to me that my clients have complete confidence in me not only as their attorney but also as someone who is genuinely concerned for their best interests and who treats them with compassion and respect.


In all of my cases I always make sure that my clients understand every aspect of their case, that they are kept informed and up to date and most importantly, that they know that I am zealously and relentlessly protecting their legal rights and interests at all times.

  • Andrew J. Proto

    I have professionally and personally known David since we started together at the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. David is an outstanding lawyer, co-worker and personal friend. David knows the law, how to argue with other attorneys and judges to effectively represent his clients. His ability to "think outside the box" to come up with creative ways to win cases is extraordinary. I am always amazed and impressed with the clever arguments he presents and just how effective he is in the courtroom. Even other lawyers tell me how impressed they are with David and that they consider him a formidable adversary, someone they can not trick or manipulate. Importantly, all his clients have confidence in his ability and always return with other matters or refer family and friends. If you are charged with any crime, you need to talk to David and you will soon share my opinion. David has gone to trial on all types of criminal cases everything from murder to traffic tickets.
