Charles “Cary” David is a founding partner of Florida Probate Law Group. His law firm is focused on mastering the intersection of probate and personal injury law and works with personal injury attorneys across the state to facilitate probate and guardianship proceedings for wrongful death and child injury settlements.
In choosing this niche, the founders of Florida Probate Law Group made it their mission to collaborate with personal injury attorneys to eliminate nagging probate and guardianship issues that can delay and jeopardize prospective settlements. Mr. David is proud to have since fostered relationships with many leading plaintiff’s firms and to have facilitated millions of dollars in settlements for clients from the Florida Panhandle to the Florida Keys.
In addition to his work with plaintiff’s lawyers, Mr. David occasionally handles high stakes trust and estate litigation for consumer clients. In 2018 and 2019 Mr. David notably represented 18 members of musician Bo Diddley's family in their quest to wrestle control of the rock and roll legend's music rights from a maligned talent management team which had controlled Bo’s business affairs during his lifetime and hijacked the estate after his death. Mr. David successfully returned control to the family and recruited record industry veteran Kendall Minter to serve as the new Trustee of Bo’s intellectual property.
The proud father of four daughters, Mr. David enjoys spending time with his family outdoors and playing sports in his free time. Mr. David is a proud member of Florida Justice Association and frequent contributor to the Trial Lawyer’s Email List. Mr. David regularly authors blog articles and resources to assist injury lawyers in navigating issues related to wrongful death estate administration or child injury guardianship requirements.
