About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Dear Friends--

I am a trial attorney and father of two wonderful children. 

I believe that in our system of justice people have a fundamental right to competent legal representation, not just a paid advocate.  Anything less than that, and our system of justice fails.  Our firm regularly handles personal injury, criminal, and family law matters, from inception to completion, whether that be settlement or trial.  My partner/brother and I have over 30 years of combined legal experience both in and out of court, that can make all of the difference when it comes to a positive result for our clients.  We pride ourselves on our hard work and sincere efforts at advancing our clients legal interests. 

What distinguishes us in my opinion, from many other firms is our broad range of trial experience.  I have personally litigated cases ranging from among other things, complex criminal cases in State and Federal Court, products liability issues, divorce litigation, auto accidents, contract disputes, bankruptcies, injunctions, and the list goes on.  I draw from those diverse experiences every time I am in Court, and they have served me and my clients well over the years.            

I invite you to contact me personally anytime, day or night, to discuss your legal matter for a free initial consultation.  See if our firm has the experience and drive to take on and win your case.

Cultivated Attorney
I recently hired David to represent me in a contested divorce case. I was impressed with his knowledge as well as his aggressive persistence. He fought for more than I was asking/expecting in mediation...And won! Thanks again! I would absolutely recommend David to my family and friends.

Trustworthy and knowledgeable.
I have been a client of David’s for many years. He has helped me through a few tough situations. I have had nothing but positive experiences with David and his office. He has very fair and well explained billing practices. Never once have I felt nickel and dimed. He has always given me his honest legal opinion even when it’s tough to hear. His legal assistant is amazingly smart and is always willing to speak with me and answer any questions I may have. I feel safe. I feel like I’m in good hands. David cares about his clients. I cannot recommend this firm enough.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Makofka was everything I needed in an attorney and more! Extremely knowledgable and helpful. He made an extremely difficult time much easier to go through and made me aware of what to expect going through the process of my legal matters. I highly recommend Mr. Makofka as not only an excellent attorney but also someone who conducts himself with grace and dignity.

Top attorney in Jacksonville
I switched attorney's in the middle of a custody battle and hired David. My previous attorney was not aggressive enough and I was scared that I would not gain custody of my son. My son is the most important part of my life and I wanted someone who I thought understood the true importance of my sensitive case and who was tough enough and had enough experience to get the job done. After my fist meeting with David I could tell by his answers to my many questions and concerns that he knew what he was doing. My case was tough and took a long time to settle but I felt that he fought hard for me. In the end I was awarded the time I deserved and wanted with my son. I will always go back to David for any future needs and would recommend him to anyone who is in need of an aggressive and knowledgeable lawyer.

Difficult custody case with ex husband
I hired David in 2011 after firing my previous attorney for not being as "forward thinking" as I am. Since the first meeting with David, I knew he would be a bulldog in the courtroom, which is exactly what I needed. It was a long battle, but in the end, David got me the results I wanted. He answered every question I had and guided me through the process every step of the way. I have referred several people to David for divorces, child support, DUI's, you name it. If any legal issues arise in the future, I will only go back to David. He is exactly the attorney you need if you want someone who will tell it like it is - No nonsense. His staff is amazing, and I will always look back on my experience positively.
