He has experience defending major retailers, large and small transportation companies, various product manufacturers and retailers, liability insurers, small businesses and individuals. David also participates in arbitrations, practices in almost all Alabama circuit courts and all three Alabama federal district courts, and was elected in 2014 to the Alabama House of Representatives representing District 46.

    Some of David’s most rewarding work occurs on a different court – the basketball court. He enjoys coaching and mentoring kids from all walks of life through community youth sports. David says there’s nothing like witnessing a child make his first basket, and knowing that he’s had a role in teaching that child a valuable life lesson about setting and achieving goals. He has been married to his wife Nancy for 20 years and has three children – David, Wilson and Elizabeth.
