Attorney David Witkon has been practicing law in New York since 2008. Prior to that, he worked in the business field, employed by, among others, Viacom and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.
David’s business experiences have prepared him well for his role as a lawyer, giving him opportunities to deal with technology and security as well as real estate and land use issues. As a businessman, David invested in real estate, built and sold homes, and developed commercial properties. He moved into the field of law later in life, motivated by a desire to help people who were facing serious legal problems. That desire continues to motivate the quality of service that he offers to clients today.
David earned a BS in Computer Science and Business Computer Information Systems from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, in 1996. He later received his Juris Doctor, graduating cum laude from the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in Islip, New York. A member of the New York State Bar and the United States Bankruptcy Court, David is licensed to practice in State of New York and admitted to the Federal Court Eastern District, New York.
His practice focuses on landlord-tenant, foreclosure defense, and divorce and family matters as well as light criminal offenses such as traffic violations, shoplifting, and petit matters (e.g., DUI, marijuana).
Regardless of the case, David’s motivation and focus are consistent—he is concerned about people and helping them through the painful and potentially confusing and difficult legal process. “I like stopping foreclosure and stopping systemic abuses,” he says. For example, “Nothing pleases me more than stopping an eviction of an old lady who was ripped off on her mortgage loan.” He is also compassionate and understanding when dealing with clients going through the difficulties of divorce.
When not in the office, David enjoys spending time with his family as well as biking, running, watching movies, and taking road trips.
