About me

David I. Hammond has first-chaired over 50 jury trials and presently heads the Personal Injury and Civil Litigation Department at Patterson Law. He is passionate about putting clients in the best possible position to ensure their legal rights and interests are protected. Often, the most effective method for accomplishing this is through a jury trial.


David discovered his passion for representing victims of personal injury while an associate attorney at the Little Rock, Arkansas, firm of Gary Eubanks & Associates. In 2007, David returned to Southern California to serve as a Deputy Public Defender in Orange County with an eye towards enhancing his already remarkable trial and courtroom skills. He quickly gained a reputation as an aggressive advocate for his clients in both the civil and criminal arenas…a reputation that continues to soar today.
