Few associates have the exceptional combination of education, experience and accomplishment that David Yellin brings to clients. A magna cum laude graduate of Georgetown University Law Center with a Master of Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science, David supplemented his education with a federal clerkship for a recognized expert on evidence and procedural rules.
As clerk to the Honorable Paul W. Grimm, District Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, David handled 13 trials in just two years. He saw first-hand what trial lawyers do to make or break a case. The invaluable insights that David gained as a federal court clerk guide his approach to Ifrah Law’s client trial strategy.
David began his legal career working side-by-side with a partner in the New York office of an Am Law 100 litigation firm. In this role, David was involved with everything from motions practice to appellate work to pro bono trials and administrative hearings.
David has learned legal strategies from some of the best minds in the field. At Ifrah Law, he applies these insights towards each matter, working closely with his colleagues to identify the legal principles that will support their client’s goals. David continues his pro bono work, focusing on human rights and asylum issues. With an insider’s knowledge of how judges think and how lawyers succeed in court, David is a welcome addition to the Ifrah Law team.
