David began his legal career as a law clerk at Florida's First District Court of Appeal - the court which has statewide jurisdiction over all workers' compensation appeals.  Since then, he has handled nearly 150 workers' compensation appeals to that court and to the Florida Supreme Court on behalf of employers and carriers.

David continues to concentrate his practice in the area of workers' compensation defense, both in Georgia and in Florida.  Formerly employed as in-house counsel for a major insurer, David has been assigned the rating of "AV Preeminent," the highest rating possible by his peers through Martindale Hubbell. David represents local and regional employers and national insurers.
