Experienced attorney David B. Haber is the founder of the Miami law office of Haber Slade, P.A. He founded the firm in 1997 with the goal of providing high-quality legal services to individuals and business owners from all across the state of Florida, including those living and working locally in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and surrounding Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Mr. Haber began his legal career in 1984 after earning his Juris Doctor from University of Florida Levin College of Law and his admission to The Florida Bar. In addition to his approval to practice law in all of Florida's courtrooms, the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit have also approved him to practice in their courtrooms.
In the 30-plus years since he began practicing law, he has earned the respect of both his clients and his peers thanks to his thorough understanding of the law and his dedication to his clients' needs. He is peer-rated as AV-Preeminent** according to Martindale Hubbell, and, in addition, Martindale-Hubbell also lists him as having a client rating of 4.5 out of 5.0.
*The law firm is a debt relief agency. The firm's attorneys help people file for bankruptcy relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
**AV-Preeminent and BV-Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
