About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing in the Twin Cities and the northern suburbs since graduating from the University of Minnesota Law School, cum laude, in 2004. I strive to develop a relationship of trust and confidence with my clients. I make consulting and hiring a lawyer as cost-effective as I can by providing honest advice, negotiating with your goals at heart, avoiding unnecessary litigation where possible, and litigating your case aggressively in court when necessary.

Over the years I have raced mountain bikes, wrote and sold short fiction, and worked as an editor on various fiction magazines. Before I went to law school, I spent ten years in the business of group health insurance, from opening letters in the mail room to negotiating contracts as an account manager. I used to play chess competitively but gave it up to retain my sanity. I married my wife Amy in 2007. We have an 11-year old son, Douglas. He likes baseball, super heroes and, above all, online gaming. He will tell you I am the very best lawyer ever. These days I spend my free time enjoying good beer and fine cigars, canoe camping in the boundary waters, and putting miles on my road bike. I ride at least one long distance charity event each year, such as the MS150 in Minnesota and the Scenic Shore 150 in Wisconsin.

Exceptional service, exceeded our expectations!
David was honest and forthright, setting our expectations appropriately. Our goal was one that is not typically obtained in family court. In the courtroom, David was professional and steered clear of “mud-slinging” tactics, even when opposing council engaged in such techniques. Instead, David astutely used facts to disprove the opposing party while maintaining the professional standard we had desired when choosing representation. Through David and his team’s exceptional service, truth and justice prevailed. Each and every person involved in our case was genuinely invested in our family’s goal. We now have peace and security, for the first time in a long time and we will be forever grateful.

David is Awesome!
David is the best lawyer I've ever used. He's very upfront with pricing, and responds to my concerns promptly. I've used him twice, and I've referred him to a friend once. When I need legal help again, I know who to call.

Awesome Lawyer!!
Working with David has been a great experience. He is a wealth of legal knowledge and is one the most compassionate, professional and understanding people I’ve had the pleasure of working with during a very difficult time. His reputation in the legal community is solid and well respected. If you find yourself in the market for a family law attorney, I strongly recommend and endorse David.

Amazing to work with!
We have used David on a number of business issues. Starting with our incorporation , then leading through non-paying clients, writing contracts and many more. David has always been through, a fantastic communicator and has always worked really hard for us to get us through every issue. I would highly recommend him!

Absolutely FABULOUS
David was absolutely amazing with my case...There was never a time I wondered what was going on, as he always kept me very well informed. He was totally on top of everything and super professional! Already referred him to a friend and would absolutely recommend him! Also loved that he was willing to work with a payment plan that worked for me : )

Not just an attorney...
My boyfriend and I are in the midst of a very stressful custody battle... I never thought I would find myself in a situation like this. Thankfully, my boyfriend and I got in touch with David Cox. He spoke with me over the phone free of charge about our situation. A number of attorneys won't do that. David is patient, smart and humble. He has been great to work with and I recommend him highly.

Family Law
David is the Best of the Best. During a nasty Family Court case, he reminded me everyday how strong I was, and that this to shall pass. And it did pass, as we won.
