For the past 40 years, David has represented clients in a wide variety of significant cases including having obtained the largest fraternity hazing verdict in the country on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Meredith whose son Chad died in a hazing incident at the University of Miami. Following the jury’s verdict, David went to the Florida legislature to testify on the subject and helped draft Florida’s current hazing law. In addition to the Meredith case, David has represented other hazing victims both in Florida and elsewhere. Most recently, he represented the parents of Andrew Coffey who died in a hazing incident at Florida State University in November 2017 and the fraternity members who he sued were criminally prosecuted under the “Chad Meredith Act” that David helped to write. He just recently settled a hazing case on behalf of Nicholas Mauricio who received a serious brain injury as a result of a fraternity ritual at FSU. Following his most recent hazing cases, David drafted new legislation to make further improvements to Florida’s hazing laws that he last wrote 12 years ago. The current bill is working its way through the Florida legislature in the 2019 session and he is optimistic that it will be signed into law this year. He has been an invited speaker on the subject of fraternity hazing and what can be done to curtail it in several states. For many years David has been listed in the “Best Lawyers” in America for Personal Injury Litigation, is the 2019 recipient of the “Lawyer of the Year” Product Liability Litigation – Miami from that publication (the fourth time he has received this honor), has been listed in “Super Lawyers,” Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, the South Florida Legal Guide’s “Top Lawyers” and related publications. He is the past recipient of the Florida Bar President’s Award of Merit for “outstanding leadership” for his bar related work, is past chairman of the Trial Lawyers Section of the Florida Bar, past President of the Young Lawyers Division of the Florida Bar, a past member of the Board of Governors of the Florida Bar, a former member of the Third DCA Judicial Nominating Committee and a proud member of ABOTA. In addition, David is the author of “Blue Chip Kids; What Every Parent and Child Should Know About Money, Investing and the Stock Market.” The book was written to help teach his son about money management skills and became the #1 book on Amazon in the category of “Kids and Money.” He has devoted considerable time to the subject of financial literacy for young people and has given presentations throughout Florida on the subject in addition to having been interviewed on more than 50 television and radio stations about the subject in the United States and Canada. “Blue Chip Kids” interstitials are broadcasted on public television in about half the markets in the U.S. He has been active with various charities including the American Red Cross and Kristi House and has held several positions at Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove. David graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Economics from Tufts University and obtained his law degree from Boston College Law School.
