Welcome to Liberty law

In law school, David commenced his legal experience as a law clerk in the elite Homicide Task Force of the Cook County Public Defender’s Office, where he learned trial skills from Assistant Public Defender Marijane Placek, an attorney whose legendary exploits in Chicago criminal courtrooms had been made into two books. Later, as a third-year law student, David argued motions and assisted with trials as a Rule 711 licensed law clerk in the felony division of the Public Defender’s Office. David also served as a law clerk in Chicago-Kent’s in-house legal clinic and was awarded the 2014 Fleischman Family Award for Excellence in Criminal Clinic for his zealous advocacy on behalf of the clinic’s clients.
