About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Fighting for justice for injured victims and their families is my great passion as an accident attorney in San Diego. It is also an enormous honor to help an injured individual during one of the most difficult times of their life. I take that responsibility very seriously, and I’ll fight with everything I have to help restore justice to those injured through no fault of their own. My pre-med background gives me insight into understanding just how signifcantly brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, or soft-tissue injuries can impact the quality of an injured victim’s life. I’m proud that our San Diego accident and injury firm has expanded to three offices to better serve my community of San Diego.

In addition to our main office in Mission Valley, we also have offices in Chula Vista and Carlsbad. Please contact me with any questions, or for a free consultation. Se habla español.

Great Job
I live in Dallas Tx. but my accident happened in California. Mr.Munoz was highly recommend by my attorney in Dallas. The Mission team did a outstanding job from day one they explained and walked me through everything. They welcome me to call,text or email if I had and questions or concerns anytime I wanted to . They actually kept me updated and in the loop during the whole process. They made me a happy and wealthy client. I definitely would recommend and use Mr. Munoz and his team in the future.

Even was able to help an already 100% disabled veteran.
As 100% disabled veteran TDIU who was hit from behind not only once, but twice at a stop light. I was seeking comprehensive legal advice and representation. I was all but expecting to hear from the other insurance company and other attorneys: "Well, you are already injured so this accident couldn't have caused any further damage." Basically ending up with nothing for my pain and suffering. Or anything else that was caused by the accident. Instead, I was greeted by an entirely awesome staff who were patient in my moments of frustration and anger. Who kept me informed and made it as easy as possible to make my appts, get paper work done and turned in, and who were reassuring. Not only reassuring as in talk, but reassuring as in, getting me a settlement that was completely fair and just. Thank you to my team of attorneys, all the girls up front, and the Paraleagal Taylor with whom I felt I was with the most towards the end and who may have dealt with me the most, both good and bad. You ALL did great and in the end went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend any veteran to this great team or any other individual in need of comprehensive legal care. I sure needed it, and it's just what I recieved. They did their job, and well, thats all anyone can ask for. Again, thank you all and thank you David J Munoz.

Excellent attorney for car accident/personal injury
My husband and I were in my car at a stop sign when we got rear ended. My car was totaled and we were both injured. David Muñoz and the other attorneys and staff were all very friendly and helpful, and explained everything along the way. The insurance company did not want to pay and tried to take us to trial, but Mission Legal helped us get our medical bills covered, and extra money for pain and suffering, all without going to trial. Thank you all for your help!

They helped till the last step and I have got a right compensation for the claim. Their attorneys are really competent and kind human beings. Its was a great experience in a really bad phase of my life.
