More About David

Sure, David has the awards and resume that make him look like a highly capable attorney to work with, but what really sets him apart is the depth of knowledge he brings to each case he works on – as well as how easy he is to talk to.

He’s methodical and he listens. David has a way of hearing our clients and connecting with genuine compassion. He’s smart and he’s in tune with what really matters: your family, your finances and your life. He takes his role as your divorce attorney seriously, but no one beats David’s ability to calm nerves.

David’s invaluable experience as a clerk for Judge Raul Vega provided the foundation for his success as a family law attorney. David continues to serve his alma mater community of DePaul University as a member of the DePaul Family Law Center Advisory Board. He was recognized as an Emerging Lawyer after being identified by his peers to be among the top lawyers in Illinois age 40 or younger.

While the whole Merel team strives to replicate David’s charismatic leadership and ability to connect with just about anyone, one thing is clear: he’s irreplaceable to our clients and the culture of our firm.
