About Me

I have extensive litigation experience and extensive criminal law experience.  I honed my trial skills as an Assistant District Attorney and was Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney in Gwinnett County at the time I went into practice for myself.  In addition to my criminal litigation experience, I have also commercial litigation and personal injury litigation experience.  I have tried over 75 jury trials so if your case belongs in the courtroom, so do I.


 


I am an attorney that focuses almost exclusively in criminal defense matters, some examples of the types of cases that I handle are listed below:


DUI Charges


Major Felonies


Drug Offenses


along with other criminal defense related issues.


 


Criminal charges are not to be taken lightly, and with extensive experience in most all of the courts throughout metro Atlanta, you can be confident in having me in your corner to defend you and your case.

  • Christa Lea Kirk

    David was my supervisor in the DA's office and mentored me for many years. After he left the DA's office, I had the opportunity to try a case against him. He is a great advocate and extremely knowledgeable. If David is your attorney, you will be in great hands.

  • Matthew David Crosby

    I have had the privilege to know David for many years working alongside of him as a fellow prosecutor and later as a defense attorney. His reputation in the legal community is exceptional. He is a tireless advocate who zealously represents his clients and consistently achieves remarkable results. David has the uncanny knack to win seemingly unwinnable cases with creative and persuasive presentations to juries. I highly endorse and highly recommend this lawyer.
