“I spent years as an insurance defence lawyer with an established Vancouver law firm at the outset of my career. I gained unique insight into how Insurance companies strategize, assess and defend claims. I’ve used that insight over the past 25 years to successfully defend personal injury victims against these companies. I approach every claim, regardless of the magnitude with the same compassion and commitment my clients expect and deserve.”


David has over 25 years of success in personal injury law. He’s been honoured with “Distinguished” status in peer ratings by the legal publication, Martindale Hubbell, every year for the past ten.

David has settled and litigated thousands of cases. He has extensive experience prosecuting catastrophic personal injury claims including paraplegia, quadriplegia and traumatic brain injury, as well as wrongful death.

He and his team coordinate comprehensive medical, vocational and economic assessments to truly determine the impact of injuries suffered by his clients and they explore treatment options. In doing so, they set a solid foundation for his clients’ fair compensation. Finally, through skillful negotiation and, if necessary, trial advocacy, he fights hard for the rights and well-being of his clients.

Put simply, David cares.

Before focusing solely on personal injury law, he practiced insurance defence litigation, including ICBC litigation. He attributes much of his current success to the experiences and insights he gained in that time.

David’s clients include legal and medical professionals, as well as the Public Guardian and Trustee of British Columbia. He also helps clients outside of the province.

“I was in a multi-fatality car accident and David was extremely concerned for my physical recovery. He explained my options and referred me to several specialists. David and his staff helped me feel confident in my rehabilitation, showed concern for my deceased friend, and helped get me excellent rehabilitation and a fair settlement. I highly recommend this team.”
