About Me

David has focused almost his entire career on helping families and children through the legal process. His professional background is a diverse combination of complex financial, criminal and family law, moving between the public and private sectors at various points in his career. David’s eight years a Senior Deputy District Attorney specializing in child-protection and domestic violence prosecution has given him a unique ability to maneuver through high-stakes and emotional litigation. David is equally comfortable in the courtroom and at the negotiating table, and often encourages mediation and arbitration to settle cases fairly and favorably without trial. David also maintains a successful criminal law practice.

  • Sara Michelle Cates

    I recently worked with David as opposing counsel on a dissolution of marriage matter. David tenaciously advocated for his client's interests while maintaining focus on what was best for this particular family as a whole. I believe David truly cares about his clients and their families, and I believe he is an asset to the Denver family law community.
