David was raised in rural West Michigan but left the area to explore education opportunities. He attended Arizona State University and earned his BA degree in 1997. After graduation, David continued his education at Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he was recognized on the Dean’s List for multiple semesters. He graduated in the top one-third of his class in 2001.
In his first role as a legal professional, David was an assistant prosecutor representing the government in criminal cases. He gained significant experience during this time and never lost a felony trial. David then moved into private practice, successfully transitioning his prosecution skills into fighting for defendants in criminal cases. He is equally dedicated to simple misdemeanor cases up to the most serious felony charges punishable by life in prison. David’s approach to representation is multi-faceted, encompassing mitigation options as well as intense trial advocacy. He is admitted to practice in Michigan, Arizona, and federal court.
While not busy working, David enjoys cooking, exercising, shooting, and spending time with his family.
