This marks David’s fourth consecutive year to be included on this annual list, which is published in the Texas Rising Stars issue of the Super Lawyers magazine and Texas Monthly magazine.
Attorneys named to the Rising Stars list go through the same extensive selection process as Super Lawyers and are selected based on nominations, independent research by Super Lawyers, and peer evaluation by practice area. To be eligible for inclusion, attorneys must be under the age of 40 or in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of eligible attorneys are named to the Rising Stars list, which indicates that David is among a prestigious list of top young lawyers in Texas.

After graduating with a degree in Economics and being inducted into Omicron Delta Epsilon, an International Economics Honor Society, David moved to Texas and attended the University of Houston Law Center. During law school, he served on the board of the Houston Journal of International Law, earned the honor of Editor of the Year, and was a Law Clerk at Abraham Watkins, where he received his first exposure to plaintiffs’ personal injury work.
Following graduation from the University of Houston Law Center, David practiced at two prominent trial law firms in Houston, a plaintiffs’ firm and a defense firm, where he litigated cases in over 23 states and obtained multi-million dollar verdicts and favorable settlements on behalf of his clients.
