David joined Linden and Associates following his 2017 call to the Ontario Bar. He practices a broad range of civil litigation, which includes medical malpractice, occupiers’ liability, product liability, professional negligence, and sexual assault.

Prior to joining the firm, David summered and articled at a large national firm where he defended insurance companies, municipalities, and hospitals from personal injury and medical malpractice claims. Having been on the other side, David knows how defence counsel operates and is able to draw on this experience to effectively represent his plaintiff clients.

David obtained his J.D from Osgoode Hall Law School where he was the recipient of the Ivan Cleveland Rand Prize for excellence in Constitutional Law. He was also selected to participate in the law school’s Test Case Litigation Project where he mounted Charter challenges to federal and provincial legislation.

Outside of work, David enjoys spending time with friends and family. He is also a fitness enthusiast who never misses a day of high-intensity interval training.
