Get Started On Getting Justice

Whether you are facing a criminal charge or dealing with the aftermath of a personal injury, you do not have to endure “pay to play for justice.” At my firm, Wallace Law Firm, I do things differently.

Why I Founded
Wallace Law Firm

My name is attorney David Wallace, and I hung out my shingle to form Wallace Law Firm the day I was admitted to practice law. Why? Because I had no interest in following the traditional path for young attorneys. I had already seen what the “pay to play for justice” system did to people trying to find a way to navigate it.

At my firm, I talk to clients like they are my peers – because they are – and keep them informed at each stage of their case. I believe in working on a contingency fee basis when possible; not only do I believe I should be able to tell you how much your legal situation should cost to resolve, I believe in letting the insurance company pay me because they are likely the reason you are coming to me for help.

Also, even though we may walk together through some difficult territory when working to resolve your case, you will find me easy to talk to. Legal conflicts are tough enough without having to feel the tension between you and your attorney, as well.

What I Do And
How I Do It

The main focus of my practice is personal injury. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by someone else’s negligence, I can help you bring your case to court or negotiate a settlement with the insurance companies. These insurers are not your friend, even if we’re talking about your own insurance company. They are in business to make a profit and please their shareholders.

My job is to fight for your interests as tenaciously as the insurance company attorneys are fighting for theirs. That’s why I call myself a “law dog warrior.” My aim is to pursue your case as relentlessly and as aggressively as those who sit on the other side of the courtroom representing the other side.

I also represent families who are pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit after their loved one was killed by the negligence of another person. This kind of death tears a hole in your life, yes, but it also tears a hole in your finances, and I can help you recover the money you need to move forward without your loved one’s contributions.

In addition to my personal injury representation, I do offer services to individuals with family law or criminal law issues. I also have a background in handling complex tort issues in civil court for injury victims suffering from the negligence of a company, governmental entity or multiple sources.

In every case I take on, I bring a direct, cost-conscious, client-focused approach to the table. Advocating for the well-being of my clients is why I practice law.

Personal Injury Client and R.N.

“Dave took my case even knowing I had preexisting injuries from a different car wreck! The other person who hit me didn’t have insurance, and I thought I was out of luck. Dave explained to me about uninsured motorist coverage, and he fought the insurance company tooth and nail so that I could walk away with a settlement.”

“I was injured from a dog bite at the local park when a big dog bit my neck and almost severed my jugular! Fortunately my master, and attorney was able to come to the rescue and make the mean dog pay my veterinary bills! They say every dog has its day, but for me, it’s a good dog darn day everyday with Dave.”
