David Keller is passionate about defending the reputations of lawyers and law firms. For over 25 years, he has devoted his practice to defending lawyer professional liability cases, counseling law firms on risk management issues, and defending Florida Bar Grievance Complaints. He often handles “bet-the-law firm” cases, and frequently represents some of the largest law firms in the country. Most recently he won summary judgment in July 2023 for an AmLaw 100 firm on a $15 million claim. Other notable cases include five trials in a seven month period, four of which he took over from other counsel after years of litigation, as he has done frequently throughout his career. He also has extensive experience with general commercial and insurance litigation.  Keller has tried over 50 cases to jury verdict, and argued over two dozen appeals - in both state and federal courts. Keller has served with distinction on the Seventeenth Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission (including a term as Chair), and on the Fourth District Court of Appeal JNC. He was recently honored to receive the prestigious Lynn Futch Professionalism Award from the Broward County Bar Association.  Keller is an instrument rated pilot who operates his own aircraft, allowing him to handle cases effectively throughout Florida.
