About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I am a trial lawyer whose background and experience provides the unique ability to handle a wide range of litigated matters.

 

I am rated AV (Preeminent) by Martindale Hubbell, the highest such rating available. I graduated cum laude in three years from Duke with an economics degree, then graduated law school magna cum laude from Georgetown.  I began my career as an associate with Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, where I specialized in complex litigation, insurance coverage, and products liability.  I moved back home to Rockland County in 1995, where I have honed my trial skills and expanded my practice areas ever since.   

 

I have recovered millions of dollars for my clients who were injured by the negligence or malpractice of others.  For example, I recently obtained an award of over $5.2 million for a child who suffered cerebral palsy as the result of a physician's malpractice in failing to recognize signs of fetal distress and timely deliver the baby.  The recovery included enrollment of the child in the N.Y. Medical Indemnity Fund, and is one of the highest ever recorded in Rockland County.

 

I have also successfully represented clients in many other litigated matters, including eminent domain, contested estates and accountings, zoning/planning disputes, and environmental matters.  I have achieved historic victories in these areas as well; I was the first and only lawyer in New York to use environmental laws to close an adult book store, and was the first in over a century to successfully defeat the use of eminent domain on the ground that the municipality acted solely for private benefit, not the public.

 

I am active in the community and charities. I coach youth hockey and lacrosse and live in Valley Cottage with my wife and three children.

My Sincerest Thanks
I highly recommend David MacCartney Jr. because he is honest. The most important quality that I respect about being a recipient of his services is that I know that he is sincere. David cares about his clients as if he was representing himself. I could not give him a five star rating because he deserves a Rare Diamond rating!!! It’s very comforting to speak with an attorney to just ask a question, and the conversation turns into a 3O minute dialogue about your family and your life. Thank You so much, David for your words of encouragement. As a man who Honorably served in the United States Air Force, I salute you for your service. To those who need honest Legal Representation, contact him! Frankie Ford, DAV USAF Retired

"I have been practicing 26 years and have known David for the past 6 years. It is my opinion that he is among the sharpest minds New York practice has to offer. He is capable of analyzing most legal matters and handling them from start to a trial/appellate finish. If your matter has merit he will know it and present your case in the best possible manner."
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I just had the pleasure of working together on a significant personal injury matter with Mr. McCartney and it was an excellent experience. He was always prepared, knew the facts and issues of the case thoroughly and was always patient, courteous and responsive to the client. I would never hesitate to work with him again and highly recommend him. An excellent lawyer!"
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"It is unusual to find a litigating attorney with the talent exhibited by David M. He is a superb advocate with Courtroom skills to compliment meticulous preparation. Perhaps there is a strong genetic tendency to be such a consummate counselor as he follows in the footsteps of his grandfather - a legend in trial circles as he does in his father attorney John's footsteps. With David advising and advocating you have the benefit of a stellar and compassionate attorney with an ethical compass to match. I say this from personal experience as a fellow litigator. The bottom line- this attorney's clients are in able hands. I strongly endorse Mr. MacCartney"
