He is an advocate for people fighting for long-term disability benefits due to accidents and illness and people fighting insurance companies for life, accidental death, and property insurance benefits.

He is available to meet with clients in Houma by appointment. David is a native of Louisiana and a graduate of Harvard Law School. While in law school, he participated in a clinical course on Health, Disability, and Estate Planning Law and Policy at the Harvard Legal Services Center, and he has continued to focus on related issues during his legal career.
Before starting his own firm, he began his career with a Houma law firm handling BP Oil Spill claims for shrimpers, oystermen, and other individuals and businesses, as well as long-term disability cases, SSDI cases, maritime personal injury cases, and car and trucking accident cases.
