About Me

David is a sixth generation Las Vegas native with diverse experiences. He was honorably discharged from the United States Army in 2001. Following his military service, David worked as a construction superintendent during one of the largest periods of growth in Las Vegas.


 


David entered law school with the goal of opening his own law firm in Las Vegas, focusing in family law, criminal law, and personal injury law. As such, while in school, David focused his studies in those areas to help accomplish that goal.


 


Immediately after passing the Bar Exam in 2011, David opened his law firm. Since then, David has represented hundreds of clients and has gained hundreds of hours of experience in all the different courtrooms in Clark County. Moreover, David has additional training through continued legal education classes by attending the family law conferences in 2006, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 as well as attending many family law bench bar meetings. In addition to his continued family law training, David has attended many continued legal education hours in DUI, criminal law, and family law.


 


Most recently, David has been the recipient of more than a dozen awards for his legal expertize in 2014 and 2015. While David humbly accepted these awards, David still considers himself in his infancy in his legal career, and he studies constantly to become a better attorney for his clients.
