Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

One of Dave's primary areas of practice is car accident litigation. He appears in the courtroom frequently, trying cases before both judges and juries and winning substantial verdicts for his clients. When it serves a client's best interests, he explores ways to resolve cases through arbitration and mediation. He works in the firm's Richmond, VA office and represents clients across the state of Virginia.

Before he joined the Allen Law Firm, Dave worked as in house legal counsel for a major automobile liability insurance company. He represented insurance company policyholders who had been sued by plaintiffs injured in motor vehicle accidents. This experience has given Dave insight into how insurance company adjusters, managers, and lawyers think and work, how they handle and evaluate claims and how they defend the policyholder during litigation.

Dave understands that liability insurance companies believe the plaintiff's deposition is the single most important event that takes place before trial. For this reason, he takes special care to prepare his clients well for the questions a defense lawyer may ask during depositions. Dave also recognizes the "red flags" or weaknesses in a defendant's case, especially those that may worry insurance adjusters and encourage them to settle cases before trial.
