David grew up in West Michigan as the son of a math teacher, before taking the next steps with his education at Arizona State University. He earned his BA degree in 1997 and then continued with his legal career at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. As a student, David made the Dean’s list multiple times. He graduated in the top one-third of his law school class in 2001.
David’s first legal role was as an assistant prosecutor, the attorney representing the government in pursuing criminal charges. He gained extensive knowledge and litigation skills and never lost a felony trial case. David now applies these skills as a criminal defense lawyer, fighting for clients in misdemeanor and felony cases. He develops solutions to mitigate the charges but remains focused on trial procedure. David is straightforward and honest in client relationships, but he is compassionate in understanding how criminal charges affect their lives.
While not helping clients, David enjoys exercise, spending time with family, shooting, and scrolling through TikTok recipes.
