About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I am an attorney at Peckar & Abramson, P.C. I represent businesses and individuals in litigation matters.  My mission is to work hard to see that you get the best possible result in the most cost-effective manner. I will be there to protect your interests, whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant.

My experience includes claims for insurance coverage, products liability, defamation, fraud, and breach of contract. My environmental expertise includes handling significant litigation matters, including Superfund cases and wrongful death, personal injury, and property damage claims arising out of underground storage tank leaks, spills of chlorinated solvents, and other chemical releases. I have represented clients before the U.S. EPA, the Illinois EPA, and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in enforcement matters.

I have counseled clients on compliance and/or permitting issues under the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and Toxic Substances Control Act. I have also helped clients take advantage of state and federal audit policies. In addition, I have advised clients on mergers and acquisitions concerning environmental liability and permitting issues, and conducted due diligence and prepared representations and warranties for corporate transactions.

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, from Marquette University, and a Juris Doctor, summa cum laude, from DePaul University College of Law. While at DePaul, I was on law review and an extern for The Honorable Blanche M. Manning, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

I am accepting new clients and appreciate any referrals. You are welcome to meet with me for free, without cost or obligation of any kind. To set up a free initial consultation, please contact my office by phone at or e-mail at
