In David's Own Words:

"Coming from an academic background, I have always enjoyed history. There was no greater excitement than diving into an archive and crafting a narrative around the primary sources I could uncover. I have carried my love of research into my practice and have learned to balance the factual details of a case with legal analysis. At the same time, my background in theatre has helped me excel at oral advocacy, making me a confident and comfortable litigator. While I still am developing as a lawyer, my clients will be confident in my ability to represent them on any issue."
