Fraud Prevention, Prosecution, and Litigation
David prosecuted felonies and complex financial crimes for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office from 1999 until 2009. His cases included all manner of white collar criminal enterprises involving investment fraud, identity theft, money laundering, and loan fraud.

He has represented clients from Vietnam, Mexico, Peru, Israel, Lebanon, Hungary, Armenia, Jordan, Romania and the Ukraine as well as numerous US business owners.
Privacy and Cyber Security
To assist his clients in this era of big data, David can advise companies on their responsibilities under California and U.S. data protection and privacy laws. He can help U.S. companies obtain certification under and comply with the US-EU Safe Harbor program for data sharing. He can help companies evaluate their risks, develop prevention and response protocols, and draft a Privacy and Cyber Security Handbook. Finally, if there is a breach, David can help companies navigate the minefields of litigation either as litigation counsel himself or by managing litigation counsel.
David is an avid educator, and his interactive style leaves his audiences engaged and asking for more. He honed his instructional skills as a college professor where he taught aspiring paralegals how to assist attorneys in litigation. He has provided training, seminars and presentations about fraud investigations to diverse audiences that include fraud detectives, the Mortgage Bankers Association, the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators, the American Conference Institute, the Federal Mortgage Fraud Working Group, Fannie Mae, the National Notary Association, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and several major financial institutions. He helped develop the curriculum that is currently used to teach California detectives how to investigate mortgage loan fraud.
