About me

After graduating from the college, David served as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. After several tours that took him to Iraq and other trouble spots, David was assigned as the Marine Corps Detachment Executive Officer on the USS Carl Vinson. After leaving active duty he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Seattle University School of Law. During law school, David joined a local Silverdale firm working as a prosecutor in municipal court. David then went to work for a growing firm in Seattle working primarily on construction litigation. But because he missed Kitsap County – he accepted an “in-house” position from one of his longtime clients, the City of Bremerton. In 2005, David formed his own firm. David’s practice ranges from complex civil litigation to residential evictions. He represents property owners, municipalities, businesses and individuals in real estate, construction, land use and other civil litigation. David is admitted to practice in all Washington Courts, Federal Court for the Western District of Washington and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He has successfully tried and argued cases in all levels of Washington’s courts; from municipal court to the Washington Supreme Court. He lives in Poulsbo with his wife, Sarah, daughters, Rebecca, Zoe and Ruby, and son, Benjamin. In his spare time, he coaches youth teams, builds and paddles kayaks, skis, runs marathons and competes in triathlons.
