I am a graduate of the Catholic University of America Law School in Washington D.C, and worked for the former INS (currently the Department of Homeland Security). I was a Attorney Adviser for the U.S. Department of Justice as well, and worked as a Law Clerk for the U.S. Immigration Judges.

Jacob Sapochnick, Immigration Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have known David for the past 12 years as a fellow lawyer in the community and he was instrumental in the launch of my own law firm. From initial support with his deep knowledge of Immigration and criminal law, through practical advice of being a lawyer, he was always there when I needed him. He is one of the best legal writers I have known. His legal briefs are perfect and he is excellent in the court room. I often refer my complex cases to him to this day. But aside from being a great lawyer, he is a great human being first. He often helps the needy and is interested in many things outside the law. He is a true reflection what a great lawyer should be and I am honored to call him a friend and a fellow member of the Bar.
