I highly recommend David Gold
David Gold represented me in my car wreck. I was in a car as a passenger and the car rolled three times. I broke my wrist. At first, the insurance company said that there was no insurance to cover my injuries because the person driving the car was not on the policy. I hired David Gold and the Gold Law Firm to represent me and once David got involved, they accepted liability. We settled the case for $100,000.00. I am very pleased with the result.

David is an incredible lawyer
My name is Kourtney, David Gold represented me in my car wreck. He came to visit me at my hotel where I was staying. The driver who hit me fled the scene. David tracked him down, found out he had insurance. After I was treated for my injuries, David got me exactly the amount of money he said he would. I am glad I hired David Gold and would recommend him to anyone who needs an injury lawyer.

Excellent Service equals Excellent Outcomes
I consulted and hired David for a couple of matters; and both were resolved expeditiously and favorably. I think it's because David's keen knowledge and extensive experience allows him to listen to the details of my case, ask the right questions, and craft a winning strategy. He's professional and courteous; and I rested assured David was handling my case. That degree of excellent service is why David is batting a thousand with me.

Positive Experience
My family and I were involved in an accident in July. A friend recommended that we hire a lawyer. Mr. David Gold was very helpful and knowledgable from start to finish. If we had a question, He took the call. We were never pushed off to someone else. He and his staff kept us updated throughout the entire case. When we finally settled, he came to our home to complete the paperwork. We were always treated with respect and kindness. We never felt like we were just a case, they took great care of us.

Courteous and aggresive car wreck lawyer
I am so glad I hired David Gold for my auto accident case. He was always easy to reach and kept me informed about my case every step of the way. David obtained MUCH more money for me than the insurance company offered and about what he said he could get me. My medical bills got paid and I got quite a bit of money for pain and suffering. If you are in a wreck, let David handle your case.

Great car wreck lawyer!
I cannot thank David enough for the hard work he and his staff did for me. I had been offered $500 from the insurance company after their policy holder rear ended my car. David got me over $10,000. Don't try to handle your own case. Call David Gold. I am glad I did.

Satisfied Client
I hired Mr. Gold to settle my March 2015 car accident. Mr. Gold was very helpful dealing with the insurance company. He settled my case quickly and for an amount I was more than happy with. I would recommend Mr. Gold to any one looking for a personal injury attorney.

You won't find a better Car Wreck Lawyer
My doctor recommended that I hire David Gold to represent me in my car wreck. My thumb got broken in the wreck and I also had pain in my neck and back. The insurance company tried to claim that I broke my thumb at work. However, that was a complete lie. David got my employment records and proved to the insurance company that my thumb got broke from the airbag and not at work. We got enough money for me to get medical care and I got something for my pain and suffering. I would definitely use David Gold again. If you get in a car wreck, call David Gold. He is awesome.

David Really Cares about his Clients
I was in a car wreck in 2012. An elderly lady did not see my car when she turned in front of me. The tremendous impact knocked me unconscious. The airbags deployed. My car was a total loss. After I was transported by ambulance to the hospital, I called one of the BIG TV ADVERTISING INJURY LAW FIRMS. They sent me to their favorite chiropractor who ran up a bill greater than $10,000.00. Once the chiropractor released me, that big firm sent a demand letter to the insurance company. But I was not well yet! How dare they try to settle my case when I was still in great pain? I fired that big law firm and hired David Gold. David got me treatment with many REAL doctors and because my case was complicated, we ended up having to file suit while I was still recovering from my injuries. Eventually, I did get better, but, not all the way better. David and his associates successfully mediated my case for a confidential dollar amount that will provide me with plenty of money for a future surgery if I choose to have one. What I really liked about working with David and his staff is that they really care about me and my health. I am a real person and not just a number to them. I highly recommend the Gold Law Firm if you get in a car wreck.

Mr. Gold is exceptional in every way this is measured
I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Gold for over twenty years. He has handled several different types of cases for me, always with professional excellence and personal care. He goes beyond just excellent. He is exceptional, in a day and age when "everyone is excellent" he stands OUT. I, myself am a law school graduate, and thus can evaluate how WELL he is compared to others. If you are fortunate enough to retain him and his staff, you can count on professional excellence and personal care that just does not exist very much anymore. They know what they are doing, and they do it WELL and do it RIGHT

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2009.

Suspension issued in TN, 2009
updated on 09/19/2017

Suspended means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

David's comment: “This suspension was actually in 2005 but was not set until 2009. It involved a client who lied to me and the police. Rather than face a worse punishment, I accepted a suspension.”
