Since 2008, David has tried to judgment five cases (four jury, one bench), coordinated the defense of 167 Georgia products cases for Yamaha, and argued in the Georgia Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, including securing the only Georgia appellate decision to ever reverse a plaintiff's verdict in a strict liability case on assumption of risk as a matter of law. David has represented GE in two dozen actions involving aviation contracts, maintenance services, and product claims.

David is the lawyer of choice in issues of integrity and process in government decision-making. He successfully challenged on a pro bono basis two of the largest U.S. school systems in cases of national significance representing dozens of children with disabilities in special education litigation.

The case received national coverage and was only the second time in Georgia history that an elected municipal official was removed from office by his peers.

David works with several Atlanta nonprofits and served previously as Atlanta Office Administrative Partner and head of the Trial Practice.
