David Angeloff

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 advised, assisted, and represented more than a thousand direct action plaintiffs in employment and personal injury matters and has secured significant recoveries for his clients. A few representative results include $6.75 million dollars for the families of three young men who were killed by an unstable roommate their landlord had matched them with; a $1,000,000 award following a six-day bench trial (including an award of punitive damages) involving two hotel housekeepers who were sexually harassed by their supervisor (Lopez, et al. v. Brighton Management LLC, et al., Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. 19STCV14229), $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 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 suffered minor injuries when a ceiling collapsed; a $450,000 recovery from an uninsured motorist insurance policy 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; and a $150,000 settlement resolved within weeks of case initiation for a warehouse worker for pregnancy discrimination. David has also helped hundreds of other individuals and families get justice through the legal system and recovered tens of millions of dollars on their behalf. Most of all, he is proud of the fact that the majority of his case referrals come from satisfied former clients.

As a an advocate, David believes in seeing the job all the way through, including up to and through the Court of Appeal, where his work has helped to shape California law on behalf of consumers and employees in decisions like Lacayo v. Catalina Restaurant Group, Inc., (38 Cal.App.5th 244), where David struck a blow against the growing trend toward mandatory arbitration of employment claims.

David believes in supporting the legal community both locally and globally 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, and is a former board member for the SoLa food co-op and a former volunteer with the Domestic Violence Project. Abroad, David has done overseas volunteer wildlife conservation work through Lawyers Without Borders and is a member of the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA), an international legal organization dedicated to promoting the rule of law.

David is admitted to practice before all California State Courts, as well as the Central, Southern, Easten, and Northern United States District Courts. He is also admitted to practice before all Courts in Washington D.C. and New York.
