For over 20 years David J. Churchill has been a practicing attorney in Las Vegas. He is a well-respected and accomplished trial attorney. David was born in Las Vegas and graduated from Bonanza High School. Thereafter he attended UNLV on scholarship. At UNLV, he earned the C. Wright Mills Award as the top ranked graduate for his major. David was awarded a full academic scholarship to attend California Western School of Law. David graduated law school in 2 years. During law school he discovered his passion for trial advocacy as a member of the moot court trial team.
After graduating from law school, David returned to Las Vegas. During his first 4 years of practice, David worked for insurance defense firms. While practicing insurance defense, David realized that the actual truth did not matter to insurance companies. He saw how insurance companies mistreated and/or intimidated injured people. Insurance companies would hire private investigators to harass injured people while they worked including showing up to videotape them in front of their co-workers. Insurance companies had “panel” doctors who they paid incredible sums of money to testify that an injured plaintiff was not really injured no matter how severe the crash or injury. Worst of all, frequently, insurance companies and corporate defendants destroyed important evidence which would establish their liability. Then, the corporate defendants would blame the plaintiff for getting injured.
In 2004, David opened his own law firm. David decided to use his knowledge to help injured people get justice. Knowing that corporate defendants and insurance companies frequently destroyed evidence, David focused his trial practice against dirty corporate defendants and their insurance companies. As a result, David has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts. In 2006, David obtained over a million dollar verdict in a case against a medical office that falsified medical records after the wrongful death of one of its patients. In 2010, David obtained a multi-million dollar verdict when a local casino intentionally erased surveillance video of an attack on a casino patron to cover up the negligence of its security guards. In 2015, David obtained a million dollar judgment against a local restaurant that destroyed evidence of the plaintiff’s incident report, photographs and manager notes. In 2018, David obtained a multi-million dollar verdict against a corporate defendant that destroyed evidence of a plumbing leak and repair when the water leak injured an office employee. In 2020, David obtained a settlement which cannot be publicly disclosed where a corporate defendant destroyed evidence from 15 video cameras.
David also enjoys helping injured workers when insurance companies wrongfully deny their claims. David has helped thousands of injured workers get compensated for their on the job injuries.
David is fluent in Italian and speaks some conversational Spanish. He is a family man with an amazing wife and 5 wonderful children.
