David L. Black represents insured and self-insured businesses as well as insurance providers in civil litigation related to workers’ compensation and general liability claims, including counseling clients on exposure in high-stakes disputes. His attention to the details of each case has earned him a strong track record for obtaining favorable results for local, national and international businesses involved in manufacturing, food and poultry processing, trucking, and public and private transportation services including car rental sectors.

David’s deep understanding of his cases and their relevant facts better position his clients to succeed in litigation matters. For example, David’s investigation and depositions in one workers’ compensation claim and related general liability claim led to the discovery that the claim was fraudulent, resulting in its denial and criminal prosecution.

Outside of the office, David is active in serving his community, including counseling low-income families in Atlanta on matters related to housing, landlord-tenant agreements, contracting and insurance. He also is a sponsor of Back on My Feet, an organization that empowers homeless members of the community with professional training and opportunities as well as support for transitioning from shelters to their own housing.
