David focuses on 2 main areas of law. Family Law, encompassing divorce law, and Property Law in the broader sense, with a strong focus on conveyancing. He also has an interest and experience in general law.
David’s passion lies in family law where he thrives working on difficult divorces. His MBA has given him the financial skills to mediate and negotiate settlements and to address difficult care and contact issues where no settlement can be reached. His core skills extend to the division of assets, including those which are not readily visible or are housed in trusts or other entities.
Although David began his career as a general practitioner running his own practice, Dewar Attorneys, dealing mostly in commercial litigation and property law, he progressed to the commercial property sector, where he got to know the industry from the inside, taking on various roles including FSB compliance, broker, and as a Director for various property investment syndication companies. This journey resulted in him becoming the National Manager for Commercial Property Finance for Bidvest Bank, adding an intimate knowledge of the machinations of Commercial Property Finance to his broader property experience.
David’s time in commerce has also given him practical contractual experience which allows him to anticipate and cater for various eventualities when drafting contracts for his clients. David ensures a multi-faceted approach to every matter before him due to his varied experience and qualifications.
