David practices with the firm’s real estate law group, and also represents clients in the areas of banking, small business, estate planning, and probate matters throughout Kentucky and Ohio. Specifically, David sets up new businesses for clients and gets them registered with the appropriate state authorities. Also, David represents builders and developers of residential real estate ventures in both Kentucky and Ohio, which include new subdivisions, as well as the sale and purchase of commercial properties in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and California.

For several years, David has represented clients in probate cases throughout Hamilton, Clermont and Butler counties in Ohio, and throughout Kentucky, helping to guide families through very difficult times. As part of his practice, David has also represented several banks regarding real estate matters both in Kentucky and Ohio, including the creation of closing documents, purchase agreements, and transfer documents, as well as title exams and opinions for both residential and commercial properties.

David currently represents a publicly traded company, and is experienced in making required quarterly and annual filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In his spare time, David enjoys spending time with his family and travelling. David and his wife, Michelle, reside in Independence, and are the proud parents of Adam, Sarah, Ryan, and Nicole, and grandparents of Aubree. David is also a life-long University of Kentucky basketball fan who cherishes, as his most prized possession, an autographed basketball by the 1978 National Championship team, which he proudly displays in his office.
