Meet David Salvin

Throughout his 28 years of practicing law, David has consistently maintained that the best representation is achieved through direct and straightforward communications with the client. David received his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Irvine where, during an accelerated course of study, he majored in history with an emphasis in Russian Language Studies. After studying in the former Soviet Union, David returned to the U.S. to complete his undergraduate work and enter law school at Whittier College School of Law. David currently holds licenses to practice in all State courts in both California and Oregon as well as the Federal District Courts of California.

In addition to serving his clients in private practice, David has served the public through his participation with the O.C. Bar Assoc. Arbitrators Panel, O.C. Judge Pro Tem, Orange County Bar Association's Conference of Delegates, South Orange County Bar Association, O.C. Trial Lawyers Association and the CA Bar Association, and the past President of the South Orange County Bar Association. David is also a frequent contributor to local legal publications to keep others in his chosen fields abreast of the latest changes in California state law.
