About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

The Lyons Law Firm is located at 1526 Gilpin Ave. Wilmington, Delaware 19806, right next to Trolley Square. I was born in Delaware and have lived here all my life. I attended Sanford Prep School, Brandywine High School (1975) , The University of Delaware, The George Washington University (B.A.1980) and The Delaware Law School of Widener University (J.D.1984) I passed the Delaware Bar in 1984. In law school I was selected as a member of the  Law Review based on my grades and writing ability. My law school classmates have acheived success as lawyers and judges, and in other fields, such as banking, including one who is currently the CEO of the Bryn Mawr Trust Company.  I have been a Trial Lawyer for over 26 years focusing exclusively on Personal Injury, Workers Compensation, and Social Security Disability litigation. I have appeared as an advocate in all Delaware Courts: the J.P.Court, the Court of Common Pleas, the Superior Court, the Court of Chancery, the Supreme Court and the following Federal Courts:  the United States District Court of Delaware, and the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.  Depending on the severity of their injuries and the type of accident  sometimes my clients are forced to seek recovery in more than one of the practice fields referenced above at the same time. It is an advantage to them to have all their claims under on one roof. Suffice it to say experince counts. And If you want zealous representation -- Call me.

Excellent Attorney
In my complex social security disability case, which involved international totalization law, I talked to many attorneys but by far David J Lyons Esq was the very best. There is no way I could have won my case without him. In fact, he won my case two (2) times as the first time the judge made a legal error so we had to go through it all again with a second hearing and he won it all again to get full SSDI benefits for me. Prior to each hearing, I could see that he over prepared and had accurately covered all angles of the case and knew all of the evidence very well. I highly recommend David J Lyons Esq as a social security disability attorney for anyone who has a genuine disability claim.

Great Lawyer
I was injured in a slip and fall accident. Mr. Lyons took care of me from the very first day we spoke. Not only did I get all my medical fees taken care of, I also got a settlement that helped get me back on my feet. He's a Great Lawyer who obviously cares about his clients.

Awesome lawyer that cares
Mr Lyons has represented me in a workers comp case. He was very informative and professional through out the process. I believe he truly cares about your physical well being as well as getting what you need to get back into life's journey. I would recommend him ( I have) to anyone seeking an injury lawyer.
