David’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts. He primarily represents policyholders seeking recovery under their insurance policies, including commercial liability, property, directors and officers, and errors and omissions coverage. He regularly handles insurance claims on behalf of businesses seeking coverage for asbestos, silica, and environmental liabilities, as well as additional insured coverage claims. He also litigates disputes with insurance brokers.

In addition to insurance matters, David’s practice includes general litigation. He represents manufacturers in defense of product liability lawsuits, has handled numerous breach of contract actions, and helped defeat class certification in a case involving consumer fraud claims.  He also regularly reviews and drafts commercial contracts for product manufacturers.

David is committed to public service. From 2016 through 2018, he served a three year term as an elected member of the Township Committee in Manalapan, where he resides with his family. He currently serves as a member of Manalapan’s Planning Board and Environmental Commission.

David also routinely engages in pro bono work. He helped secure political asylum in the New York City Immigration Court for refugees fleeing persecution in their home country. Through the ReLeSe program conducted by Volunteer Lawyers for Justice, he has successfully expunged criminal records for numerous individuals seeking employment.

During law school, David interned for the Honorable Mary Catherine Cuff of the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division.
