About me

I became an attorney after being serious injured in a car accident when I was hit head-on by a drunk driver.  I understand too well that pain and suffering that comes along with being the victim of someone else's negligence.  While I recovered from my serious injuries, I attended law school with the intention of helping others whose lives have been tragically altered.

  • Lee Samuel Fainman

    I endorse this lawyer. David is an excellent Attorney, and truly a unique Attorney, 1 in 1,000 out there. He's very well known and respected in our Chicago land legal system and legal circles. David has been very successful, in part, because he's brilliant. He knows how to speak with and treat his clients, he knows how to treat people, and he knows how to approach problems and apply outside the box and novel thinking, and arguments to solve such legal issues. Because David is such a good people person, people in turn appreciate that. I noticed he has a couple of client reviews here on Avvo. Very few Lawyers in the area in which David and I practice have that, what his clients have to say about his firm, and their experiences with David, is very important, as it should be for any law firm/Lawyer. David's also very talented and knowledgeable in general law, litigation, and is the type of Attorney I'm fortunate to have used as a mentor, or fellow Lawyer to run things by and brainstorm
