Originally from Fairfax County, Virginia, David has always pursued three passions: music, boating, and helping others. He worked as a boat captain, job training instructor for youth-at-risk, and a public school teacher. But it was in law that he found his calling. He graduated magna cum laude from law school, third in his class, and served as editor-in-chief of the law review and an extern for Judge Alice Batchelder of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. After law school he landed a job with a top trial attorney in Seattle, Washington, where he gained trial experience and was trained in cutting edge of theories of personal injury litigation.
In 2012 he launched his own practice, inspired by a colleague who enjoyed a healthy practice by keeping a low overhead and small case load. With the addition of Civil Rights and Employment attorney Chalmers Johnson, Of Counsel, David expanded his practice to include employment litigation, fighting for the rights of employees who are mistreated or discriminated against by their employers. Today, David enjoys the small practice paradigm, which allows him to give each case the time it deserves and to build relationships with his clients. David is admitted to practice in South Carolina and Washington state and maintains a caseload in both places.
In his spare time, he explores the near coastal waters with his beautiful wife Colleen in their 22 foot lobster boat, currently named "Hieronymus." The grey and white tuxedo cat stays at home.
His passion for music is fulfilled by his role as front-man and guitar player for the band, Triangle Bluegrass.
