David G. McConkie was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated in 2002 from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in saxophone performance. Before entering George Mason University School of Law in Washington, D.C., Mr. McConkie worked as a saxophonist, and later, as a legislative assistant with two of Colorado’s United States Senators.
In law school, Mr. McConkie received the Bendheim and Murphy scholarships and served as Articles Editor on The Journal of Law, Economics & Policy. He worked as a law clerk with Carey & Allende, a law firm in Santiago, Chile, and with several United States government agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate, and the White House. Before returning to Colorado, Mr. McConkie worked in The Hague, Netherlands, assisting a practice group with representation of the Ethiopian government before an international claims commission.
Mr. McConkie was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 2008 and served as Deputy District Attorney in Colorado’s Fourth Judicial District from 2008 to 2011. As a prosecutor, Mr. McConkie managed all aspects of heavy misdemeanor and felony caseloads. He joined a private civil litigation practice in 2011 and has helped build Torbet Tuft & McConkie as a trial and litigation law firm.
Mr. McConkie has brought disputes to resolution in over 75 jury trials, bench trials or arbitration proceedings, including multiple seven-figure and high-level felony disputes. While he particularly enjoys trial, he has more commonly helped clients obtain favorable outcomes through negotiation, litigation, and mediation in hundreds of business, real estate (including construction defect), personal injury, employment and bankruptcy matters. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court, District of Colorado, and he is a member of the Colorado and El Paso County Bar Associations. Mr. McConkie is fluent in Spanish and enjoys helping his Spanish-speaking clients.
Mr. McConkie and his wife, a cellist, have five children. In his spare time he serenades them with jazz riffs, lugs them to the tops of Colorado’s mountains, and cheers them on as coach and fan of their sporting feats.
