David treats every case as his only case, thus ensuring that each client receives the personal attention that they deserve.

David B. Lever has been tirelessly advocating for the legal rights of accident victims, injured through no fault of their own, since 1990. David is proud to say that every case he has handled throughout his professional career has been on behalf of individuals, regardless of their financial means, and he has never represented insurance companies or corporate defendants. Known for his integrity and commitment to fighting for what he believes is right, David is well respected by both lawyers and judges in the legal community. If you need a personal injury attorney, David B. Lever has the experience needed to help navigate your case.

David opened the doors to his own law practice at the young age of 30, after having worked for a New York City plaintiff’s personal injury firm. While some things have changed over the years, one thing that remains constant is David’s unwavering passion for his work and empathy for the clients he serves. David derives personal satisfaction in fighting for justice and providing some measure of dignity back to those whose lives have been forever altered.

David received his Juris Doctor from Pace University School of Law in 1989 and his undergraduate degree from Ithaca College in 1986. David is admitted to practice before the courts of the States of New York and New Jersey, the United States District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the United States District Court of New Jersey, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.

David is a member of several bar associations, including the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the New York State Bar Association, the Westchester County Bar Association, the Bronx County Bar Association, the White Plains Bar Association, and the Justice Brandeis Law Society, on which he serves as a member of its Executive Committee.

David has been selected to the New York Metro “Super Lawyers” List for 2020, 2021 and 2022, representing recognition as among the top five percent of plaintiff’s personal injury lawyers in the New York metro area. He has also been named one of the Top 100 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers in New York by The National Trial Lawyers organization.

David is a strong believer in giving back to the community and aims to support others who may be disadvantaged or struggling. He serves on the Board of Trustees for Adults and Children with Learning Disabilities, Inc. (ACLD). ACLD is one of the largest not-for-profit providers of support in Nassau and Suffolk counties to children and adults with autism, intellectual and other developmental disabilities, and their families.

In his personal time, David resides with his wife, daughter, and three dogs in Westchester County. David enjoys golf, racquetball, and rooting for his hometown Yankees, Giants, and Rangers.
