About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I was raised in South Florida where I grew up fishing, boating, rooting for the Dolphins, and spending entirely too much time in the sun. After finishing high school in Fort Lauderdale, I attended Florida State University, home of the Seminoles. After graduating, I went to the Florida State University College of Law where I obtained my Juris Doctorate in 1989.

I moved back to South Florida where I began practicing law. I was fortunate enough to have a successful run with my own firm for almost twenty years. During this time, I was instrumental in growing the firm from a two attorney shop into an 11 attorney/ 50 support staff firm with two offices. I devoted my practice to fighting for the rights of the injured and aggrieved, dedicating 100% of my efforts to the rights of the individual, be it personal injury, social security disability or insurance/ contract disputes. I tried over 100 cases to completion in Florida and was successful in obtaining great results- largely by virtue of outworking the other guy. I developed many of the traits that serve me well today- organization, hard work, and a single- minded desire to do the best job possible for my clients.

Far more important though, it was there I met my beautiful wife Rosy. After being blessed with two great little girls, Jennifer and Jessica, we took a look at the proverbial landscape and determined West Palm Beach was not the place to raise kids. Our travels ultimately brought us to Middle Tennessee. I have found this to be the perfect place for us- peaceful, friendly and a heavy emphasis on education. Additionally, we love the people. Tennessee deserves its reputation as the "friendliest place in the country".

Since moving to Tennessee, I have learned to love country music and generally spent a lot of quality time raising my kids. I still fish, boat, and spend entirely too much time in the sun. Now, however, I root for the Titans! After all these years, I consider myself a lnatice. 

Professionally, it was a priority to find a firm committed to providing the best representation available. I firmly believe the client deserves nothing less. Over the course of my career, I have earned certain accolades that reflect this dedication. I am AV rated by Martindale Hubble (the highest rating a lawyer can achieve) and a longtime member of Best Lawyers in America and Tennessee Super Lawyers. It was important to me to join a like-minded group. In that regard, I have been blessed to partner with David Raybin and be a member of Raybin & Weissman. This is a great group that works hard, loves the law and places the priority on the client's needs and results. I look forward to a long future in the Nashville legal community and look forward to helping you in any way I can be of assistance.

Excellent Experience with David and His Team
I had the pleasure of working with David and his staff recently, and I can't speak highly enough of the experience. From the very beginning, David set clear expectations and guided me through the entire process. Communication was seamless, with David and his team always available to address any questions or concerns promptly. I truly appreciated the professionalism and efficiency demonstrated from start to finish. I highly recommend David and his team for their exceptional service.

Amazing Attorney & Staff!!!
Attorney Weissman and his staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. The constant communication and professionalism was nothing short of perfection and I highly recommend this law firm for any case you may be going through. Unlike billboard law firms you see at every turn, Attorney Weissman and staff truly care about their clients well-being and not just a quick resolution. You will not simply be a case number but rather, a part of their family.

Best lawyer around!
After my accident I called around and spoke to multiple people. Mr Weissman was the only lawyer that I spoke to who made me feel like he actually cared. He took on my case and made it a very easy process. He was always very direct and straight forward with me and always just an email or call away. He and his team were beyond kind and fought for me. It was refreshing to have someone looking out for me and not their pockets. I am 100 % satisfied with his service and would recommend him to anyone!

Professional/hard working compassionate lawyer
Had a great experience with great results as I was on the verge of losing my vehicle and my horse but with the settlement David got me I got to keep them both. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs professional, hard working compassionate legal representation.

Best Lawyer for Our Case
David advised us honestly through our entire case. In the beginning we lost our case but after going to trial he & Ben along with the help of Sharon won our case. My husband and l highly recommend David and his team for whatever needs you may have even when it involves the Government.

Compassionate Attorney
When I was injured in a car accident I was already undergoing treatments for a complex medical condition. My hope was flickering when new injuries from the car accident added devastating complications to my day to day life. Dave was compassionate, kind and generous with his guidance and professionalism. He met me where I was at - all along the way - and stayed honest with me about my options. I am grateful for his honesty and humility. His paralegal, Sharon, is a gem. She truly cares about each person they work with and goes the extra mile!

Perfect Outcome
Attorney Weissman did an amazing job. He was extremely communicative throughout the whole case. The outcome he projected the day we met was the outcome we received. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needed legal assistance with any personal injury case.

Professional, direct, kind, patient, and follows through!
I was rear-ended by a reckless/careless driver and have suffered greatly from the crash. David was very patient and kind during the process and insisted I focus on getting the right medical care and my recovery. He reached out to me regularly checking on the medical care I was receiving, how I was doing, and kept me abreast as to what was happening with the case. Thank you David.

Great lawyer, very experienced!
David is very personable and a pleasure to work with. My wife was in a serious car accident, and this was our first personal injury lawsuit. David made sure we knew what to expect and was clear about everything upfront. We always felt like we were in good and experienced hands. Definitely recommend.

Auto Accidents Happen
I put my trust in David Weissman's hands, and he handled the rest. Atty Weissman informed me of what he needed, and after that, he hit the floor running. After a few back and forth talks with the insurance company. Atty Weissman called me to pick up my check. Atty Weissman was kind and easy to talk to about my case. He explained everything to me in the simplest terms. David was always available by phone or email if I had any questions about the issue. Thank you, Atty David Weissman

Greatest Law Firm Ever!
My wife was involved in an auto accident in Fort Myers Beach, Florida and had several injuries. Mr. Weissman and staff handled the case for her. The out-come was GREAT. I have been in law enforcement for 35 years and in the private sector for another 10 years. There is no way my wife's out-come would have turned out to the undisclosed amount if Mr. Weissman had not handled it for her. I assure all out there that there is not a law firm better anywhere in the USA. The entire staff was always very helpful, courteous and professional on each and every occasions. Raybin & Weissman Law Firm is a 10-star firm, 5 is just not HIGH enough. You Go Mr. Weissman. Larry Flair & family!

Outstanding Counselor
My wife and I worked with Dave for the past several years on a complicated personal injury case. Throughout the process, Dave was honest, professional, responsive and very transparent. He at no time misguided us nor made promises a reputable lawyer couldn't keep. He is an outstanding individual and I would not hesitate recommending Dave Weisman to represent anyone should the need arise.
