He completed his Juris Doctorate in 1994 at University of Oregon and University of Idaho where he also graduated with honors in the top 10% of his class.

David practiced in Oregon and Washington for six years litigating real estate disputes and handling business and real estate purchases and sales. While in Washington and Oregon, David worked closely with several companies doing turn-around work on retail and industrial properties. David’s accounting background allowed him to assist his clients with managing the profitability of the projects as well as developing creative solutions to financing, tenanting, refurbishing, and selling the projects.

In 2001, David moved to Arizona at the request of a client to continue turn-around work. In Arizona, David began building his litigation practice. While litigating cases, David continued his transactional practice including real estate and business transactions, entity formation, stock and asset purchases and sales, commercial financing, commercial leasing, and contract negotiation and drafting.

In recent years, David’s practice has focused on meeting the needs of local and national retailers. In addition to handling personal injury claims arising from premises accidents, automobile accidents, and commercial trucking accidents, David has assisted clients with subrogation claims, CAM reconciliations, landlord disputes, indemnity claims against landlords and product manufacturers and distributors, and lease negotiation.
