David is a Chicago-based partner with Troutman Sanders, LLP and focuses his practice on insurance matters and complex commercial disputes. David’s wife, Julie, is an Evanston native, and they have lived in Evanston since 2003. Their two children, Ali and Zach, attend Evanston’s Dewey Elementary School. David and Julie are Co-Chairs of the Noah’s Playground for Everyone Committee, which raised funds to build a handicapped-accessible playground at Lawson Park in Evanston and to provide an accessible route to the washrooms at the playground and onto nearby Lighthouse Beach. Although David is not a native Evanstonian, he can often be heard telling people what a great place Evanston is to live.
David was introduced to Y.O.U. by two friends and was immediately inspired by the wonderful work that Y.O.U does for kids in Evanston and by the amazing qualities of Y.O.U.’s leadership and staff. David gladly accepts the privilege of serving on the Y.O.U. Board to provide him with the opportunity to contribute in some small measure to Y.O.U and to the betterment of the Evanston community.
