David grew up in a rural part of West Michigan, the son of a math teacher. His educational pursuits took him to Arizona State University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1997. The next step in David’s legal career was Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he was placed on the Dean’s List for several semesters. In 2001, David graduated in the top one-third of his law school class.
In his first legal job, David served as assistant prosecutor for the government. He developed trial skills and significant knowledge about strategy and never lost a felony trial. These attributes are critical now that David is in private practice, defending the rights of those facing criminal charges. His approach aims to maximize defenses and other opportunities, but he will employ all litigation tactics to gain an advantage. David is licensed to practice in Michigan, Arizona, and the US District Court in West Michigan.
When not focused on criminal defense, David enjoys exercise, shooting, and the outdoors. He also treasures time with family.
