""Being injured in a car accident is a stressful experience," says David. "Not only are my clients in pain and worried about their future, but they don't know where to begin. They are overwhelmed at the thought of dealing with an insurance company and what amount of compensation they are entitled to. I am able to take on the insurance company for them and maximize their compensation so that they can focus on getting better"."

About David

David is a Partner on the Accident and Personal Injury team who helps injured victims of car accidents, slip and falls and disability claims. He understands the unwanted stress and difficulties that come with injury claims and makes it a priority to listen to his clients’ concerns.

Raised in Truro, Nova Scotia, David grew up watching his father practice law and welcome clients into their family home. It was at this early age that he learned the dedication it takes to being a great lawyer -- a mix of hard work, unwavering integrity and sincere client relationships.

David has proven experience in obtaining settlements without going to court but has also represented and argued for compensation in court when necessary, having appeared before the Small Claims Court, Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and various tribunals and boards. He is determined to understand each of his clients’ unique situations and works to achieve the best results for each of them.

David offers free consultations to his clients so that he can explain to them whether they have a claim, and if so, whether it makes sense to hire a lawyer. David does his work on a contingency fee rate so that his clients only pay fees if he is successful in obtaining a settlement or reward.

Currently, David sits as BOYNECLARKE LLP’s Chair of the Articling Committee, where he annually leads the firm through the hiring process. He is also an active member of the Atlantic Provinces Trial Lawyers Association, the Canadian Bar Association and the Nova Scotia’s Barristers’ Society. In 2013, he completed the Intensive Trial Advocacy course at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
