David's deep insight into every facet of employment law makes him a go-to lawyer for clients across the county.

Specifically, David has served and continues to serve as lead trial counsel on all employment related litigation matters throughout the country impacting employers today. He regularly advises clients on day-to-day matters, positioning clients to avoid litigation or if litigation is unavoidable, to increase the likelihood of success by strategically identifying the issues before final employment decisions are made. David routinely advises employers regarding matters specific to the National Labor Relations Act, either in the form of union avoidance or representing clients in union negotiations and collective bargaining administration.

As managing partner of Shankman Leone, not only is David laser focused in the world of labor and employment law, but he constantly strives to steer the firm in the manner most likely to generate the best results for clients at a value to the client that comparable services and results can’t match. David is a father of four and when work and family are not the priority, “I enjoy time with friends and clients on the golf course.”
