Representing those in Duchess County, David Akerib is managing attorney at Jacoby & Meyers. He handles cases of personal injury and has almost three decades of experience protecting the rights of the injured in more than one thousand cases.

At the National University of Singapore, he earned his bachelor’s degree in law in 1988, then went on to the Ohr Somayach Institution to obtain a master’s in Jewish Philosophy in 1992. Since then, he has been providing legal representation with exceptional personal service that is focused directly on the needs of his clients.

Anyone who has been injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of another will find an advocate in Mr. Akerib.

Some of his more successful cases include a $750,000 settlement for a construction worker, a $450,000 settlement for a pedestrian that fell on a sidewalk and a $250,000 settlement for a client injured while working on a military base. As clients recover from their injuries, Mr. Akerib works to set up a financial situation that allows them to have a successful future.
