David Abernethy has spent more than three decades as a trial and appellate lawyer, prevailing in court for some of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical and medical device companies, insurance carriers and other Fortune 100 companies. He has defended hundreds of product liability claims, complex insurance coverage actions, contract and commercial disputes, and consumer class actions, at trial, on appeal and in complex arbitrations. David employs his decades of experience throughout the country to develop litigation strategies that work for clients — whether the ultimate decision is to try the case to a jury, a judge or arbitrators, or pursue a settlement that makes business sense.
Before entering the private practice of law in 1986, David served as a judge advocate officer in the United States Army, prosecuting dozens of challenging criminal cases, including drug offenses and child sexual assault cases.
