David DePiano is an experienced attorney in both litigation and real estate transactional work. He is a South Florida native who began his career at a prestigious international trial firm. There he gained significant experience handling high stakes products liability matters and contractual disputes for fortune 50 companies. These included several significant class action disputes.
