A North Carolina native, David was born and raised in a commercial fishing family on the Outer Banks. He decided to attend law school while he was at North Carolina State University earning dual BAs in Economics and Business Management. Even then, he knew that "fighting for the little guy" was his destiny. After 20 years, he and his partners continue to stand for the same principles.
An avid Top Dragster racer (with an IHRA Class B license), David has written articles on the importance of adequate insurance coverage and appropriate legal representation for several racing industry publications.
He spent years dedicated to the Boy Scouts of America as a leader and is the proud father of two Eagles Scouts. Through his local church, David coordinates volunteer projects, including a community food program for the underprivileged and a project for rebuilding homes damaged by tornadoes in North Carolina.
David has been in private practice with Don Marcari since 1995 and is the managing partner of the firm's Raleigh office. He handles the firm's workers' compensation cases as well as other personal injury cases, including auto, truck and motorcycle accidents.
