Practicing Attorney

Before joining Robert E. Long & Associates, Ltd., David participated in many types of complex litigation in both state and federal courts. These cases involved contracts disputes, Constitutional civil rights claims, personal injury, and labor law.

 

Since joining Robert E. Long & Associates, Ltd. in January of 2007, David’s primary practice areas include family law, criminal and traffic defense, estate planning, and business law. David is a certified Guardian ad Litem and has extensive experience representing adults and children in custody disputes.

 

In 2013, David was invited to become a member of the I’Anson-Hoffman American Inn of Court, an organization devoted to enhancing civility and cooperation among attorneys and judges.

Passionate Teacher

David then moved to Chesapeake, Virginia and became a Social Studies teacher at Oscar F. Smith High School. He taught Advanced Placement American History, Honors American History, American History, World Geography, and Government. David enjoyed the unusual distinction of being named Teacher of the Month for his first month of teaching (his AP U.S. History class stuffed the ballot box).  David still enjoys keeping in touch with many of his former students.

 

Since becoming an attorney, David has continued to be active in the classroom, teaching undergraduate courses in U.S. History and Criminal Law and Drafting Contracts in law school.
