David has practiced in litigation and dispute resolution for over twenty years and in 2018 he became a Law Institute of Victoria Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation.

David assists clients by applying his expertise to guide them towards a resolution of their commercial and estate disputes.

The stress and uncertainty experienced by clients involved in litigation can typically be navigated better by adopting a calm and disciplined approach and seeking to understand the underlying causes of the dispute.  David finds that advising clients with this in mind is a beneficial addition to providing legal advice about the specific issues in dispute.

During the past year David has become adept at using Zoom as an effective communication option for those who would prefer not to travel into the CBD to meet in person.

After work, David likes to relax by watching a good movie or tuning in to cheer on the Aussies on cricket fields both local and abroad.
