About David

Throughout my 26-year career at Verizon, 17 specializing in legal operations, I’ve held a variety of roles and responsibilities. Given the variety of my work experience, I am very familiar with the responsibilities and requirements of various departments within a large company.

As I progressed in my career as a Legal Operations Specialist my passion grew for this specialized and expansive field. I became the department expert in document management, matter management, and legal spend reporting and analysis, paying close attention to spending on diversity and inclusion with hundreds of law firms. During my tenure, I developed process improvements and led initiatives that affected positive and efficient change in how the legal department functioned and performed.

I took pride and ownership of each task, regardless of my job description, taking on every assignment without hesitation and ensuring successful completion. From inception, integration, upgrades, and rollouts of legal support systems, to being a member of the department’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, my years of institutional knowledge and achievement will surely shine within your legal operations department.
