Mr. Fineman was born and raised in Southwest Florida and is a graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University (B.S. Legal Studies and Criminal Justice). In 2007, he obtained his Juris Doctorate from Barry University School of Law.


While in law school, Mr. Fineman served as a Certified Legal Intern for the State Attorney’s Office of the Ninth Judicial Circuit which allowed him to prosecute several criminal cases for the State of Florida. He was also a Senior Note and Comment Editor on Barry University’s Law Review and graduated second in his class. Mr. Fineman was invited to be a speaker at the Fifth District Court of Appeals Induction Ceremony as a result of achieving one of the top scores on the Florida Bar 2007 Summer exam.


Mr. Fineman is licensed to practice in all state courts in Florida and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. He began practicing law in Punta Gorda, Florida in 2007. Since becoming licensed, Mr. Fineman has worked in various areas of law including criminal law, personal injury, land use, construction law, real estate law, landlord/tenant law, judgment enforcement and association law. However, Mr. Fineman focuses his practice around consumer protection, foreclosure defense, and bankruptcy.


Prior to practicing law, Mr. Fineman served the community as a law enforcement officer. He served as a deputy for the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office and a police officer for the Punta Gorda Police Department as both an auxiliary, and full-time member for a combined 10 years of service. Mr. Fineman brings his law enforcement experience to the legal field, and uses it in representing clients on criminal matters as well.

  • Shaun Amarnani

    David Fineman is an attorney who I would trust sending my family members to. I have known David for about 5 years. David has done nothing but work hard since I have known him. What many do not know about David is that he scored one of the top scores on his Florida Bar Exam in his graduating year. He is excellent at anything he does pertaining to the law and I am happy to have him as a collegue and mentor.
