David is a partner in the firm whose practice primarily focuses on business litigation, business/employer counseling, fiduciary litigation, including will challenges, and trust lawsuits. He also has extensive experience in construction litigation, securities litigation and arbitration, and real estate disputes. A native of Virginia, David attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria before matriculating to Swarthmore College and the University Of Virginia School Of Law. Following graduation, David Clerked for the Honorable Danny C. Reeves in federal district court in Kentucky, where he was exposed to a wide array of federal litigation as well as appellate litigation before the Sixth Circuit. David then moved to Washington, D.C., to practice with a large national firm based out of Palo Alto, California, representing technology companies in commercial, securities, and antitrust litigation. David then moved to a regional litigation firm, where he practiced in the area of products liability before returning to Charlottesville. David lives in Charlottesville with his wife and two young daughters. As a result of the latter, he has no meaningful hobbies, though he does own golf clubs and occasionally pretends he can play.
