David is a partner in Goodsill’s Litigation Practice Group. David is able to talk with clients about complex strategies and technological issues related to cybersecurity, business, aviation, environmental concerns, and internal controls in simple terms they can understand.

He has litigation experience in areas of aviation, environmental law, corporate defense, professional liability, premises liability, dram shop liability, and intellectual property.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and University of California Davis School of Law, David began his career as an associate working in Washington, D.C. and Paris, France as a member of Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP’s securities litigation and anti-corruption and internal investigations practice groups. David has been with Goodsill since he moved to Hawai’i with his family in 2013.


David and his wife are bona fide foodies, so they’re always up for trying a new restaurant or revisiting an old favorite.
