David Thomas Eastman was born in Provo, Utah. Mr. Eastman began his college education at BYU- Hawaii where he learned a great appreciation for many different cultures from all over the world. He then spent two years in England doing volunteer work where he continued to cultivate his appreciation for diversity and culture, as well as gain a profound understanding of the importance of families. He went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University.
He attended California Western School of Law where he received the Wiley Manual Award for his pro bono services in 2003 for the San Diego Volunteer Program. He then transferred to Arizona State University College of Law where he focused on Estate Planning and earned his Juris Doctorate degree.
David worked in the Phoenix Public Defender’s Office during the last semester of law school where he had the opportunity to participate in misdemeanor trials. He was also given honors for his trial advocacy skills while performing a mock trial before the Honorable Raymond Lee of the Maricopa County Superior Court.
In 2005, David joined the team at Morris Hall as a legal assistant and then as an attorney in the Estate Administration Department. It is here that he has learned the importance of having a well-drafted estate plan and the complications that can arise by not having one.
Mr. Eastman is married with 4 children.
