David Elk
Elk & Elk Co., Ltd. - Cleveland

David is the Senior Partner of Elk & Elk in Cleveland, Ohio. As an Ohio personal injury lawyer, he has represented thousands of medical malpractice and wrongful death victims throughout the state for nearly 50 years. He has devoted his entire professional life of almost five decades to helping injured people receive the compensation they deserve.

Dave began his professional career with one of the largest and most prestigious personal injury law firms in Ohio and spent his first seven years under the wing of Ohio’s best. After practicing on his own for several years, his entrepreneurial spirit got the better of him and he ventured into practice with his brother Art, whom together built geographically one of the largest injury practices in the state of Ohio.

Dave believes that quality legal representation allows all people to level the playing field against the big insurance companies.

When Dave isn’t representing the rights of injury victims, he spends his time being an active husband, father and grandfather to his wife Marilyn, three children, granddaughters Meredith, Madison and Celia, grandson Dylan and granddaughter Skye. Dave is also a lifelong Cleveland Indians fan, and frequently attends games with family and friends.
