David Bence is a native of Alabama who has a busy law practice in Phenix City, the town where he grew up.
David completed his undergraduate studies at Troy University, where he received a B.S. in Business in 2004. He then worked for a time before deciding to pursue a career in law.
David enrolled at Jones School of Law where he received his J.D. in 2008. He then went to work in the Auburn office of the Slocumb Law Firm, where he concentrated on representing individuals who have been injured.
After a few years, David decided to launch his own firm with a goal of providing clients superior service and a commitment to seeking maximum compensation for them. He opened the Bence Law Firm LLC in Auburn and later decided to move the law practice to his hometown of Phenix City.
Over the years, David’s commitment to improving the lives of his clients has resulted in collecting more than $50 million on their behalf. These verdicts and settlements have included $1.4 million for injuries resulting from a T-bone motor vehicle collision, $750,000 for a misdiagnosis and overmedication of a prescription drug, $350,000 for injuries sustained in a head-on collision in Huntsville, and $175,000 for a train station fall resulting in a broken leg.
Competitive by nature, David enjoys the give and take of dealing with opposing counsel. But he also admits to having a “nerdy” side. “I like to break everything down,” he says. “I like the learning, the preparation, the study, the getting ready. You’ve got to bring your A-game, and I do everything I can to be ready to do that.”
Among his professional affiliations, David is a member of the American Association of Justice and the Alabama Association for Justice. He is admitted to the U.S. District Court’s Middle and Northern Districts in Alabama.
When he’s not working for his clients, David enjoys working out and lifting weights, boating, and hunting.
