David is a preeminent business trial lawyer in the State of Florida. Rated “AV” by Martindale-Hubbell® since 1986, the premier independent rating guide to lawyers in the United States, he has additionally been named by his peers and the judiciary to Best Lawyers in America from 2006-2022. In 2014, Orlando Magazine has recognized David as one of the "Best Lawyers" in Orlando from 2006-2021, and honored him as “Lawyer of the Year”, citing his recognition for “Bet the Company Litigation.” He has been recognized in Florida Super Lawyers from 2006-2015.

Prior to joining GrayRobinson, David was a partner at several of the largest law firms in the United States, including serving as Chair of a National Litigation practice group of one of the 5 largest national law firms in the United States.
David’s practice is unique, in that he has handled approximately 50 jury trials to verdict, along with dozens of non-jury trials. While many prominent business litigators actually have little or no trial experience, David typically has handled two trials a year over his 35-year legal career.
Beginning in the last decade, David became one of the leaders in pushing for mainstream law firms to handle commercial litigation matters on modified or contingent fee agreements. Today, while he maintains a traditional business litigation practice, David also serves as chair of GrayRobinson’s business contingency litigation practice.
David’s practice areas include commercial and business tort litigation, contract litigation, corporate dispute litigation, class action litigation (both Plaintiff and Defendant), as well as select catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation.
