Bio

When you need a proven trial lawyer with a national reach, David R. Shoop is ready to help. David started his career in high-stakes litigation, representing national and international companies and their insurers in numerous multi-million-dollar cases. Now, he focuses exclusively on helping injured consumers and personal injury victims get the justice and compensation they need.

For over 15 years, David has represented injured consumers in a wide range of matters involving the defective design, manufacture, and distribution of dangerous products. He has had a hand in recovering over $100 million in settlements and verdicts for his clients – just in the realms of product liability and defective medical devices alone. One such case involved a $30 million verdict in a product liability lawsuit in Los Angeles County (Case No. BC 594187). He is no stranger to dealing with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) and regularly handles multi-million-dollar cases against the manufacturers of medical devices, including a recent $14 million aggregate settlement for an implantable medical device.

In addition to understanding the inner workings of insurance defense, David has valuable knowledge of engineering and physics, accident reconstruction, biometrics, and other fields applicable to the cases he handles. He uses this knowledge as well as the testimony and work of experts across many fields, such as engineers, economists, medical professionals, and more. He handles cases involving complex engineering, product testing, hazard identification, faulty warnings, and other matters. David is a member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and has litigated a number of fire and casualty cases, with a recent $3.5 million settlement for burn injury clients.

David can take cases before government agencies, as well as numerous state and federal courts. He has coordinated and/or practiced complex litigation in over 10 states, including California, New York, Washington, Oklahoma, Illinois, Texas, and Arizona, to name a few.

As a plaintiff’s trial attorney, David takes pride in recovering significant verdicts and settlements that truly change his clients’ lives. He works tirelessly on behalf of injured consumers to maximize compensation so they can rebuild and move on.
