David Angeloff is a dedicated trial lawyer who practices in all areas of civil litigation, including personal injury and employment law. He has a reputation for being a committed advocate and for balancing civility and professionalism with tenacious representation of his clients.
Born and raised in Southern California, David graduated from UC Santa Barbara and studied law at the University of San Diego. Along the way, David lived and studied internationally, studying international law at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, and was selected to study slavery and human rights issues in Tanzania and Zanzibar under the guidance of a former UN prosecutor.
During law school, Mr. Angeloff was a two-year member of the national mock trial team and won several CALI awards for top-in-class grades, ultimately graduating in the top 10% of his class, Cum Laude and Order of the Coif. As an attorney, he has been recognized by his peers as a “Super Lawyer” and a “Rising Star”, an elite award reserved for less than 2.5% of practicing attorneys in California.
Over the course of his career he has secured significant recoveries for his clients. A few representative results include $6.75 million dollars from a landlord for the families of three young men killed by a roommate the landlord had matched them with; $1.8 million dollars for the family of a boy who died as a result of eating a poorly labeled food product; $1 million dollars for an in-home nursing care company whose attorneys had committed malpractice; a $550,000 trial verdict for a client who badly broke his arm falling off a dangerous ladder; a $640,000 settlement for an Uber passenger who suffered a knee injury in a crash; a $275,000 trial verdict for an elderly woman who was injured when a ceiling collapsed; $450,000 in uninsured motorist coverage for an injured driver when both liability and coverage were disputed; a $380,000 settlement for a medical services company in a legal malpractice action; a $500,000 settlement for an exchange student who suffered a non-surgical pelvic injury in an auto crash; a $350,000 settlement for a whistleblower who reported a dangerous defect in a product to his employer and then was fired; a $150,000 settlement resolved within weeks of case initiation for a warehouse worker for pregnancy discrimination; and a $160,000 settlement for a female employee of a military contractor who was sexually harassed on the job. David has also helped hundreds of other individuals and families representing tens of millions in total verdicts and settlements get justice through the legal system and is proud of the fact that most of his case referrals come from satisfied former clients.
David believes in supporting the Southern California legal community through volunteering. He is a periodic guest lecturer at the University of San Diego School of Law on the subject of employment discrimination under the Fair Employment and Housing Act. He also volunteers as a Fee Arbitrator for the Los Angeles County Bar Association, as a board member for the SoLa food co-op, and has done international volunteer wildlife conservation work through Lawyers Without Borders.
David is admitted to practice before all California State Courts, as well as the Central, Southern, and Northern United States District Courts. He is also admitted to practice before all Courts in Washington D.C. and New York.
