Growing up in West Michigan, David’s formative years were influenced by his parents’ background in education. He attended Arizona State University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1997. The next step in David’s education career was Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He earned Dean’s List honors several semesters before graduating in the top one-third of his class.
David’s first position out of law school was assistant prosecutor, the attorney who represents the government in criminal cases. He gained significant knowledge and experience during that time, and never lost a felony case in his role as prosecutor. David has successfully transitioned these skills into criminal defense and representing defendants. Having managed numerous capital felony cases, he is prepared to handle matters from minor misdemeanors to serious charges. David’s approach aims to minimize criminal charges and leverage gains in court, no matter how complex the case. Clients benefit from his honesty, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving goals.
While not working, David enjoys shooting, exercising, and spending time with his family.
