Dave joined the firm in the spring of 2010. He spent the first 6 years of his career working as a trial lawyer for defense firms of various sizes ranging from 6 to 300+ attorneys. During his time at those firms he developed a strong desire to represent plaintiffs in order to help individuals and families in their time of greatest need. It was that, along with Dave's vast litigation experience, which made him the perfect fit for our practice.

Dave graduated from the University of Missouri - Columbia School of Law in 2003, where he was a member of Law Review. In 2000, Dave graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a B.S. in management. He was voted captain of his college basketball team and twice named to the All-Conference basketball team.

Dave is licensed to practice in the states of Missouri and Kansas, and focuses his practice on medical negligence, automobile/trucking accident, and products liability litigation.

Dave, who was born in Houston, Texas, has called the Kansas City area home for as long as he can remember. When not at work, Dave enjoys spending time with his wife, Naaron, working out, playing basketball, hiking and mountain climbing.
