Attorney Profile

The founder of the Law Offices of David A. Black, David A. Black represents the rights of people in Phoenix, Arizona, and the surrounding metropolitan area. He focuses his practice on criminal defense, handling cases involving internet crimes, murder, credit card fraud, assault, drug offenses, campus crimes, DUI, theft, financial fraud, juvenile offenses, possession of prescription drugs, domestic violence, counterfeiting, federal crimes and unemployment fraud. Mr. Black also handles probation and parole issues.

Mr. Black attended Arizona State University and graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Justice Studies. He then used his studies on law, writing and justice to help graduate students improve their own writing skills and to prepare students for the LSAT.

Afterwards, Mr. Black studied at UCLA Law, focusing his attention on criminal law. He performed an internship in criminal defense and another one in prosecution during his time there. After graduating from UCLA Law with a Juris Doctor, Mr. Black returned to Maricopa County and worked as a prosecutor for a time before changing his practice to criminal defense.

His experience as a prosecutor provides him with an inside understanding of how the judicial system works, and he uses his knowledge to benefit his clients. Mr. Black believes that every person deserves an aggressive yet compassionate attorney. He explains the legal process to his clients and works hard to reach a resolution that is favorable to them. His dedication has earned him an Avvo rating of 10.0 in criminal defense, which is considered superb, and he has been AV Rated for several years.

The Law Offices of David A. Black employs Mr. William Wynn, an associate and graduate of Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor School of Law.  William has experience in construction defect litiation, general criminal litigation, DUI defense, and personal injury litigation.

Kim Davis, lead paralegal for the firm, came on board in 2015.  She brings a zeal for justice and a vast working knowledge of the criminal court rules and procedure.  She is an excellent addition to the team, and we are so happy to have her.
