David’s practice focuses on environmental and natural resources matters, with an emphasis on endangered species, wetlands, water pollution, environmental compliance, and site remediation issues, both in California and throughout the Western states.  He has done extensive work in Hawaii continuously since the late 1980’s.  His clients include large landowners, residential and commercial property developers, oil producers, renewable energy companies (solar and wind), electric and water utilities, timber and mining companies, vineyards, universities, and municipalities in identifying and achieving compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.  


David received his B.S. degree in Conservation of Natural Resources from the University of California, Berkeley in 1981, and his J.D. with honors from the University of Oregon in 1985.  Prior to attending law school, David worked in the Enforcement Division of the Environmental Protection Agency in San Francisco.  After graduating from law school, David first practiced land use and environmental law in Seattle, before joining McCutchen in San Francisco in 1987.  At McCutchen, he initially practiced environmental compliance and litigation, emphasizing CERCLA and Clean Water Act matters.
