David is a national leading litigator and advocate in the area of civil rights and education. He is a proud Aggie graduate of NMSU and received his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin. He has been practicing law since 2000.

 

He previously served as the Intercultural Development Research Association’s National Director of Policy and Director of the Equity Assistance Center-South. As center director, he created equity tools and provided technical assistance for schools across the American South to help break down civil rights barriers. David also served twelve years at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), serving the last four years as Southwest Regional Counsel. His litigation and policy work resulted in desegregating several schools, improving state school finance systems, cultivating quality programs for English learners, and preserving access to higher education for immigrants, students of color and military veterans.

 

David also was the chief architect the Martinez plantiffs in the Martinez/Yazzie v. New Mexico, the state’s most comprehensive educational opportunity case. In 2014, he successfully argued in the district court that education is a fundamental right secured under the state constitution. He also litigated other cases in New Mexico in education, employment and immigrant rights.
