David arrived at Matter in 2006 with an expertise in estate law, gift tax planning, and professional client service. As Central Regional Director for Wealth Transfer Solutions at PricewaterhouseCoopers, he developed complex estate plans, domestic and international wealth transfer strategies, charitable gifting strategies, and family business succession and governance planning. The move to Matter returned David to a smaller, more personal firm environment, as he had previously practiced estate law as a partner in a local law firm.
David studied pre-law at Villanova University, went to St. Louis University for his JD, and then Boston University for an LLM. Since 2001, David has served as an Adjunct Professor at Washington University Law School, where he teaches graduate courses in International Estate Planning and Asset Protection Planning.
David is President of the board of the St. Louis Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association and is an active volunteer at Fair St. Louis. He also serves on the Arch Grants Competition Committee and as a community representative awarding scholarships to students participating in the College Bound program. He loves to get outdoors, skiing, skeet shooting, fly-fishing or just walking his dog in Forest Park.
