About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Military law
    David’s long familiarity with the military and respect for the sacrifices made by U.S. veterans has been instrumental in his decision to represent disabled veterans and their families.

  2. Personal injury
    In 2000, David helped to form Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban with a specific goal — to help people seriously injured in car, truck and motorcycle accidents, and wrongful death and other cases where he fights for full compensation to help clients rebuild their lives.

David Russotto began his legal career as an attorney with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps. He was stationed at Naval Base Norfolk as Defense Counsel and then as Trial Counsel and Legal Services Attorney at Naval Air Station Oceana.

After attending Staff Judge Advocate School, David went on to work as staff Judge Advocate at FCTCLANT Dam Neck in Virginia Beach, providing legal advice to the base commander. In 1991 he went into private practice and in 2000 Mr. Russotto helped found Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban.

Veterans Benefits. David’s long familiarity with the military and respect for the sacrifices made by U.S. veterans has been instrumental in his decision to represent disabled veterans and their families. Up until June 2007, veterans were not permitted to engage the services of an attorney to apply for benefits.  Today, attorneys may be retained by applicants who have been turned down or received an unsatisfactory level of benefits and wish to appeal the VA's decision. For these reasons, David champions the interests of veterans across the United States.
