About Our Firm

MESSAGE FROM DAVID

As a seasoned attorney, I will work diligently and tirelessly on your behalf.  I began my career as a prosecutor and, after nearly a decade of private sector work, I have committed myself to defending the rights of New Yorkers and their families.

As your attorney, you will find that I exhibit a powerful combination of proven legal expertise, solid communication skills, and hands-on trial experience.  I can also bring to the table:

  • Excellent and strategic case-management skills with the experience required to remain highly focused and self-possessed in fast-paced, demanding, and exacting environments.
  • Highly developed and effective communication skills with a proven capacity to gain the support and respect of court officers, peers, jurors, and witnesses.
  • Proven ability to generate solid research, draft persuasive motions, and negotiate fair resolutions.

These skills combined with my strong sense of professional integrity have contributed significantly to my successes as well as my achievements. I thrive on challenges and — rest assured — will spend the time and effort it takes to defend your rights.  Every defendant’s circumstances are unique, and a defense attorney’s discretion and experience is vital when determining whether to pursue trial, plea arrangement, or an alternative sentencing platform.

David has helped my small business (photography) with several proposals and bid letters. He also took the time to explain the language of each letter. I would definitely use David again for all the legal needs of my business! William F Spencer

I worked with David while at the District Attorney's office. David is very knowledgeable in the law. David has outstanding attention to detail and the critical ability to see the big picture, then find and question the inconsistencies in the reports. This is a fundamental skill that makes a good criminal defense lawyer great. I highly recommend David.

David is a first-rate trial lawyer. Having had the opportunity to both watch him in trial and personally try a case with him, I can say that I would be glad to have him working with me on a case. His delivery is excellent, as is his ability to connect with a jury.

Knowledgable and great to work withI can't say enough good things about David. My husband needed his help with language for documents he'd need for his business. David was knowledgeable and told us exactly what we needed to hear. I can't think of anyone else I'd want to work with. The next time we need legal counsel, we're calling David.

When my mother suffered back and shoulder injuries due to a car accident, Mr. Leigh went above and beyond to make sure she was rightfully compensated for her traumatic ordeal. He was tough with the insurance company yet very patient with my older mom, as he navigated her through these complex negotiations. He exemplifies what a personal injury attorney should be and we highly recommend him.

David is a top-notch lawyer who is very diligent in all that he does. He is not only a sharp legal mind, but actually has interpersonal skills that make him a caring advocate for his clients. I have had the privilege of working with David in private law practice and can easily say that few attorneys match him in personability, advocacy, verbal ability, and in-court and deposition strategy.

3 Things Avoid Saying After an NYC Car Accident

The first few moments after a car accident are confusing and distressing. They’re also distracting. You’re not necessarily thinking about the legal ramifications of what just happened.

Is it Ethical to Pursue a Personal Injury Case?

Some people hesitate to call a personal injury lawyer because a lot of very powerful interests have spent an awful lot of time disparaging people who do it.
