David is a graduate of the University of Virginia, where he majored in History and minored in Religious Studies. David, a former debate team captain and basketball coach, also led a research team for the Rutherford Institute on civil liberties project. He was editor-in-chief of a political periodical at UVA as well as a feared intramural floor hockey captain for his fraternity. David has an avid interest in Spanish and Hispanic culture that stems from his upbringing in Mexico and studies abroad in Valencia, Spain.
David’s always known he wanted to go to law school so the main question facing him his last year in undergrad became which law school he should attend. It became a no brainer. David’s always been attracted to Atlanta, because of the large size, southern hospitality mixed with international flair, and its market opportunities. Because of UGA’s very strong connections to Atlanta through alumni and physical proximity, this made UGA a top choice. This feeling was cemented after touring the school and speaking to current law students; both of these actions gave him a feel for the warmth and charm of the people, town, and school environment.
David is very much enjoying his law school experience. Fellow students are very friendly, the professors are helpful, and living in Athens is extraordinarily fun. David looks forward to seeing where his passion for lititgation develops in the legal field and where it might take him in the upcoming years.
