David is a lead trial lawyer with a track record of success across a diverse array of claims, including various types of construction and real estate disputes, business tort, significant property damage and personal injury cases.

Clients commend David for his cost-effective representation and his creative approach to resolving business disputes and lawsuits.

Over a 20-year litigation career, David has served as the first chair trial lawyer in a number of cases tried to verdict, and represented clients in state courts throughout Missouri and Illinois and in federal court. He has successfully tried a number of arbitrations through the AAA, and has handled dozens of mediations. In his work with clients, David frequently crafts smart, effective strategies that help companies respond to claims and mitigate disputes long before lawsuits are filed.

David has represented contractors, owners, and lenders in construction disputes that have involved companies pursuing claims as a plaintiff and defending against damage claims and mechanic's liens. David has also handled various high exposure tort matters, including business tort, significant property damage, and personal injury and death cases, often representing the client in claims or communications with its insurer.

In one precedent-setting case, David developed a challenge in the trial and appellate courts to mandatory Missouri jury instructions interpreting a federal statute in a case he tried to verdict in 2003. That challenge culminated in a victory before the United States Supreme Court in 2007.
