David A. Williams exclusively represents individuals and families victimized by the wrongful conduct of others and employees injured at work. David concentrates his practice in worker’s compensation and plaintiff's personal injury law, including cases involving construction negligence, transportation (automobile, truck and railroad) negligence, premises liability, wrongful death and the Federal Employers Liability Act.
David was raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, where he attended St. Viator High School (Arlington Heights, Illinois) and, after earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio), attended DePaul University’s College of Law (Chicago, Illinois), where he was awarded a Juris Doctorate. David worked his way through law school, including a post at a prominent insurance defense firm where he demonstrated legal acumen beyond his years and earned an associate position after becoming licensed to practice.
During his time working for the defense, David defended corporations and their employees in a variety of personal injury matters.
After spending over five years honing his skills, David realized that his passion and talents were best served representing victims of personal injury. David’s experience as a defense lawyer gives him a unique perspective and advantage when representing his clients, including a sound understanding of how insurance companies and their lawyers analyze and evaluate cases.
David’s commitment to his clients is demonstrated at every step of a case, from the initial client interview to his presentation at trial. He handles each case with thoughtfulness and thoroughness.
David is currently an active member of the legal community, including the Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association. He volunteers as a Panel Attorney for Chicago Volunteer Legal Services and is an investigator for the Chicago Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Committee.
David lives in the southwest suburbs with his wife and kids.
