Learn David’s areas of practice.

Practice area
  1. Social Security & Disability
    I represent individuals who have been denied in applications for Social Security Disability or Veterans Disability benefits.

    19 years, 1,000 cases

I was born and raised in Macon, Georgia. I graduated from Georgia State University College of Law in 2002. During law school, I was an active member of both the Moot Court Board, serving as Vice President of Appellate Advocacy, and the Student Trial Lawyers Association. I received special recognition for my performance in Research, Writing and Advocacy and Litigation classes.

Since graduating from law school, I have devoted my career to helping people in need against the powerful interests of the government, large corporations and insurance companies. I have been lead counsel in over a dozen jury trials, have written and argued dozens of successful pre-trial motions and have successfully assisted over a thousand individuals obtain their Social Security disability benefits.

I have been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2002 and am licensed to practice in the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Georgia and the United States Northern District Court. I am a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives, the Atlanta Bar Association and the Dekalb Bar Association.

Very Satisfied
My representation from Mr. Stevens has been excellent. He and his Assistant made my attorney client experience seamless by keeping me informed. He was very professional, and presented my case issues in a timely manner. I am very pleased with my case outcome and would recommend him to others.

I was represented by Attorney David Stevens in my claim for social security benefits. I would recommend Attorney Stevens to any potential client because of his professional demeanor. Attorney Stevens has a very knowledgeable and capable staff working for him. I was treated with both kindness and respect by this Attorney and staff.

Review for David Stevens of Atlanta, GA
Mr Stevens has been my attorney concerning Social Security & workers compensation for almost 4 years and has kept me VERY well informed of what was going on in both cases. I would (and have) recommended him to several people I know. He has always responded when I called (usually within the SAME DAY). He has been very patient with all of my questions and always answered them so I could understand what he was saying instead of using "lawyer language". He has ALWAYS been very caring in both of my cases.
