He is recognized as a Criminal Defense “Super Lawyer” in Boston Magazine, listed in Best Lawyers in America, and maintains the highest possible rating by Martindale Hubbell.

David has spent decades representing criminal defendants in state and federal courts. He has tried or been co-counsel on major criminal cases representing clients accused of murder, larceny, real estate fraud, tax fraud, rape, sexual assault, drug crimes, firearm offenses, perjury, various forms of criminal conspiracy, and other charges.

David brings exceptional trial skills and wide-ranging knowledge of civil legal issues to his civil litigation practice. David has extensive experience in a number of civil practice areas, including personal injury, business litigation, employment matters, and property rights. His personal injury cases have included slip and falls, automobile accidents, bicycle accidents, and assault and battery suits. In a personal injury case, David’s client, the victim of a hit-and-run driver, received an $850,000 settlement after David brought suit against the driver. He has represented a company in a real estate matter against its insurance company, as well as owners of a startup in a lawsuit over the dissolution of their business. In another case, David represented the shareholders of a small corporation against a breach of fiduciary duty suit. In that case, he won on a motion for summary judgment, resulting in the case against his clients being dismissed.
