About me


A native of Boston and the Red Sox Nation, David graduated from the William & Mary School of Law, where he was an editor of the Law Review and served for two years as a Graduate Research Fellow (academic scholarship) for Professor Richard Hynes, researching issues in consumer bankruptcy. Following law school, David served as a law clerk at the Supreme Court of Virginia's Department of Legal Research, advising trial judges throughout Virginia. David has since litigated hundreds of cases and tried numerous cases to both judges and juries throughout Virginia.

David devotes his practice to civil litigation in the areas of creditors' rights in both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy proceedings, as well as business litigation involving contract, fraud, and real estate disputes. He also draws on his experience as a former defense attorney for insurers and large companies and represents, on a highly selective basis, parties who have been wrongfully injured. He works tirelessly, aggressively and creatively in these areas to find the best solutions for his clients.

David is admitted to practice in all state courts in Virginia and various federal courts in Virginia, and is a member of the Virginia State Bar, the Richmond Bar Association and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.
