Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, David knew early on that he wanted to practice law in his hometown and give back to the community that’s given so much to him. After graduating from Law School, David spent two years in Richland County as a public defender, before opening the doors to the Law Office of David B. Tarr in the year 2000.
David has a unique relationship with each of his clients that goes beyond the attorney-client relationship. He’s always been interested in people, but as a criminal defense lawyer, he’s also invested in them and what their futures hold.
After over twenty years as a criminal defense lawyer, David continues to be humbled by the trust and faith his clients have in him. As a father of three, David has gained an even deeper appreciation of what it means truly dedicate yourself to someone or something you value and care about. His love for his own family makes him that much more aware of how important the cases he defends are. He believes that in defending and protecting people’s rights, it’s not just about the person he’s representing. It’s also about their grandmother, their dad, their siblings, it’s a family affair, and they’re all looking to him for guidance in what, for them, is usually uncharted territory.
Focused solely on criminal defense, David represents people facing a variety of criminal charges, including DUI, juvenile offenses, drug charges, shoplifting and theft charges, and capital murder. David Tarr values each of his clients and genuinely wants the best for them, he is available when you need him, and will vigorously defend you in the legal system.
