I am the managing attorney at Head Law. I love helping others resolve their difficult legal problems. I have extensive litigation experience, including multiple jury and bench trials, and have also filed several appeals to Utah or federal appellate courts.

I grew up in Salt Lake County, Utah and went to the University of Utah for my undergraduate studies. I attended graduate school and law school at St. Mary’s University.

Prior to working at Head Law, I worked at a prestigious litigation law firm—working primarily in personal injury, employment, and family law litigation—in Salt Lake County, Utah. I also previously worked at a prestigious criminal defense firm in Salt Lake County, Utah, and at a legal clinic in San Antonio, Texas performing legal services for indigent members of the community.

I have also acted as a chairperson for medical malpractice prelitigation panels for the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing. In Utah, medical malpractice claimants are required to appear and present their cases before the prelitigation panels prior to filing their cases in the Utah district courts. As a chairperson, I have conducted the panels, evaluated the cases with the other panel members, issued decisions for each case, and drafted panel opinions.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and family, painting, writing, and watching mixed martial arts.

Beyond the call
David did work for me in an appeal before the Utah Court of Appeals. You can see by my rating of him that I was very pleased with his work but what simple "stars" don't indicate are the degree to which this young man worked with me every step of the way to do things "my way". To say that I am demanding is an understatement, and David paid close attention to my needs, wants and desires throughout the process. I couldn't ask for more.
