The Daniel Webster Scholar Program is a two-year bar examination process that is unique to New Hampshire. David was trained to be client and practice-ready immediately out of law school. While in law school, he also served as the managing editor of IDEA: The Journal of the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property, and a teacher’s assistant for Alternative Dispute Resolution. In addition, he was awarded a position with the Rudman Summer Fellows Program for public service in 2015.
During law school, David got a variety of experiences working in a Congressional Office, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, the 10th Circuit Court in Brentwood, New Hampshire, and a private New Hampshire Law Firm.
David was admitted to the New Hampshire Bar Association in May of 2016, the Federal District of New Hampshire in July of 2016, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire in 2017 and the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals in 2019. He is currently a member of the New Hampshire Bar’s Family Law Section and a member of the Webster-Batchelder American Inn of Court.
During his free time, David enjoys running, fishing, movies, reading, and keeping up with the New England sports teams.
David’s work is primarily in Family, Bankruptcy, and Appellate areas, but he does assist in General Litigation across our practice. He has successfully argued and wrote briefs before the New Hampshire Supreme Court, and wrote briefs for successful arguments before the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals. He believes in creative and common-sense approaches that establish long-lasting solutions between parties.
