David has practiced primarily in the areas of insurance, disability insurance, oil and gas, construction and general commercial litigation. During his 21 years of practice, David has run several trials in the Court of Queen’s Bench, been involved in numerous Special Chamber’s Applications and argued at the Court of Appeal on a wide range of legal issues. 

David now brings the experience of having appeared at all levels of court in Alberta to the mediation process. David has obtained immeasurable litigation experience and gained some sense of what a court may do if a certain matter were to come before it; not to mention having a clear understanding of the significant time and cost commitments of proceeding to trial.

David completed the STARS program at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution through Pepperdine University, School of Law. This mediation training, along with David's litigation experience and balanced approach to problem solving will allow him to assist parties in negotiating a successful resolution of their lawsuits, regardless of the value or issues in dispute. David was recognized by The Best Lawyers in Canada for Corporate and Commercial litigation (2021).
