David represents people harmed in air crashes, semi-truck and motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, product liability accidents, recreational and commercial boating accidents, premises liability accidents, work injury and construction accidents. He has been appointed by federal judges to serve on plaintiffs' steering committees in airline disaster cases, and he is known nationally for his work representing injured victims and the families of those killed in air disasters.

By helping people and holding the at fault parties accountable, David helps make the community safer. David provides customized services to every client he represents, offering the compassion and skill they need to get just results, while staying as comfortable as possible with the process.

As an aviation attorney, David has served on several court appointed plaintiffs' steering committees in major air disaster cases, where he has represented passengers, their families, crew members and their families. He is currently lead counsel representing injured passengers in a lawsuit involving the crash of USAirways flight 1702. David also represents passengers and pilots in general aviation cases. He is the Chair of the Chicago Bar Association's Aviation Law Committee.

David is a member of the invitation only American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an association of premier trial attorneys who are dedicated to preserving the right to trial by jury. ABOTA's general mission is "to foster improvement in the ethical and technical standards of practice in the field of advocacy to the end that individual litigants may receive more effective representation and the general public be benefited by more efficient administration of justice consistent with time-tested and traditional principles of litigation."

Since 1990, David Rapoport has been Board Certified* in Civil Trial Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy ("NBTA"), the oldest and largest not-for-profit American Bar Association ("ABA") accredited trial attorney certification program. Attorneys with NBTA certification have proven specialized abilities through written examinations and meeting rigorous criteria for trial experience and ethical ratings. Mr. Rapoport has proven his currency and substantial trial experience through NBTA recertification in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015.

David is a leader of the movement to encourage board certification for trial lawyers. From August of 2013 to August of 2016, he was the President of the NBTA. In addition to being the Immediate Past President of this non-profit more than 2,000 member organization, he is a Director, a member of the Executive Committee and the Chair of the Communications Committee. David recently explained: "In this era of Wild West style lawyer advertising, it has never been more important for the public to have an easy to use and reliable means of identifying the small fraction of practicing attorneys who truly have substantial experience trying lawsuits. Board certification programs help consumers of legal services make more informed choices. Too many lawyers are out there claiming they have substantial trial experience, when the truth is they have never or hardly ever tried a case. Board certified trial lawyers have proven their substantial trial experience in ways the public can trust."

David is a Diplomate of the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA). He is Board Certified* by the ABPLA in in Medical Malpractice and is the only plaintiffs' attorney in Illinois with dual board certification* in Civil Trial Advocacy and Medical Malpractice. Like the NBTA, the ABPLA is a non-profit organization accredited by the ABA to issue attorney board certifications.
