David was raised in rural West Michigan, the child of a parochial school math teacher. His education journey took him away from the area and off to Arizona State University, where he earned his BA degree in 1997. David then attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he was recognized on the Dean’s List for multiple semesters. He graduated in 2001 in the top one-third of his class.
As his first position out of law school, David served as an assistant prosecutor. He never lost a felony trial while fighting on behalf of the government. Now, David concentrates his efforts and talents on advocating for defendants in criminal cases. He develops strategies that minimize the impact of the charges, but he focuses on tactics to gain an advantage in litigation. David has handled numerous capital felony cases, though he is equally dedicated to defending minor misdemeanors. He is honest, diligent, and compassionate, qualities that benefit the client relationship.
In his free time, David enjoys exercise, being outdoors, cooking, and family get-togethers.
