About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Through jury trials, arbitrations and settlements, I have regularly obtained significant results for my clients, including my firm Sugarman & Sugarman, P.C.'s largest medical malpractice award in 2016 and a $30.55 million verdict in 2019 with my partner Ben Zimmermann, which is among the highest medical malpractice verdicts in Massachusetts history. I have represented clients in claims involving wrongful death and serious injury in a broad range of civil practice, including claims resulting from defective consumer products, motor vehicles and industrial equipment, medical negligence, construction site negligence, motor vehicle accidents, and other complex litigation claims. In addition, I have represented clients in such diverse areas of civil practice as arbitration proceedings relating to corporate stock manipulation, a breach of contract case on behalf of a member of a world-renowned band, and loss of business income cases.

I joined Sugarman as an associate in 2003 and became a principal of the firm in 2011.

Best Personal Liability Attorney!!!!
Attorney David McCormack and the staff members of Sugarman & Sugarman are immeasurable in personal injury legal expertise and customer service. I hired a prior attorney that was not concerned about my case and gave me the run around for a year. It was a difficult process and painful ordeal not being provided the proper legal counsel. It was a gift of a referral that directed me to Sugarman & Sugarman. I felt a sense of relief and a huge burden was lifted, which allowed me to focus on healing from my auto accident. Attorney McCormack is exceptional, truly professional and kind. I was kept informed of every detail and up-to-date status of my case. There was no second guessing that I was being represented by the best.

Excellent attorney from a premier firm
When I have a serious case, I send it to David McCormack and Sugarman & Sugarman, P.C. There's just no one else in MA that can touch the results they get. As for David, he's an attorney with the expertise to handle any sort of plaintiff's case and the human touch so that I know when I send a client to him, they'll be treated with respect and courtesy. David is very good at communicating, both with referring attorneys and clients. He also benefits from working at the premier P.I. firm in Boston, with the resources to fight until the end on behalf of injured people. I can't recommend David and his firm highly enough.

Rude and in a rush
I was hoping for advice and information from a legal perspective. Instead of providing any counsel when he called David was rushing me to speak and interrupting me to ask questions about what he was focused on rather than my concerns. He did not offer me any information or counsel instead he expressed his lack of interest after only a few minutes of our call.

"As an attorney, finding qualified attorneys in other practice areas to whom I can refer clients is essential to maintaining relationships with those clients. When I refer cases to David Mccormack at Sugarman and Sugarman, I know that I never need to worry about any backlash from the referral. He is immediately responsive and always professional. In addition, Dave has always been open and honest with my clients regarding the merits of their case. I have never been disappointed when referring cases to Sugarman and Sugarman."
Personal injury Attorney | Aug 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I would recommend Sugarman to anyone looking for a firm that specializes in personal injury law. As a practicing attorney, I have worked closely in conjunction with Dave McCormack and the other members of the Sugarman team for several years. They display a level of professionalism and expertise that is comforting to someone who refers them cases. Whenever I have sent them a case, they respond immediately, and get in touch with the client that day. As someone who has both referred cases, and accepted referrals from Sugarman and other sources, I feel this is one of the most important qualities that a firm can display. This, along with the exceptional results they achieve for their clients earns them my highest recommendation."
Personal injury Attorney | Aug 06
Relationship: Co-worker
"David McCormack is the lawyer who I refer all of my Mass. personal injury cases to. I had the pleasure of being his colleague at Sugarman, and I just really can't say enough good things about him. I can attest from first-hand experience that David is a truly excellent lawyer. He is extremely smart, knowledgeable, respected, has a strong moral compass, and is devoted to and really goes the distance for his clients -- who, by the way, all like him very much."
