David attended OU for both undergraduate and law school. He then served over four years on active duty with the United States Army as a lawyer in the Judge Advocate General's Corps. During this period, he gained valuable trial experience.
After leaving active duty in 1982, David continued his military career in the Army Reserves until 2006, when he retired at the rank of Colonel.
Although David's practice is primarily in the injury law arena, his experience involves all aspects of civil litigation. In his initial practice of law in Oklahoma City, his emphasis was in business litigation, both for Plaintiffs and Defendants. He later found more satisfaction and enjoyment in helping injured individuals recover for their losses or damages. So, for the last twenty-five years, he has concentrated his practice in the areas of personal injury, insurance law, and employment law.
