About me

Since 1999, I have represented clients charged with crimes ranging from DUI to First Degree Murder.  My other primary practice area is domestic law.  While many cases are resolved without going to trial, I have served as lead counsel in over 30 jury trials and have the experience necessary if your case cannot be resolved.  This experience allows me to give you a realistic assessment of your situation so that I can help guide your through the difficult decisions you will be making about your case.

  • Lawrence James Arnkoff

    David and I are working on a very complex federal criminal case together. We met when he was accepted to the very prestigious federal criminal justice act panel and we have become good friends. I am guessing David is the youngest if not one of the youngest lawyers to be accepted to this panel which speaks a whole lot to his skills as a lawyer. He is very bright and personable and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent criminal defense attorney.
