Before joining The Watson Firm, David was a real estate attorney in the Dallas office of Polsinelli and a real estate and land use attorney in the Portland, Oregon, office of Perkins Coie. Licensed to practice law in Texas and Oregon, David received his law degree in 2014 from Harvard Law School, where he received the Dean’s Scholar Prize for his proficiency with real estate and property law. He earned his bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Oregon in 2010.
An Oregon native, David moved in 2019 to Texas, where he enjoys the warmer weather and — as an avid weather photographer and videographer — the Lone Star State’s propensity for terrifying storms. He enjoys reading, writing short stories, and exploring the outdoors, particularly the Broken Bow area of Oklahoma, with his wife and son.
