David S. Head

David S. Head, managing attorney at Head Law, loves helping others resolve their difficult legal problems. David has extensive litigation experience, including multiple jury and bench trials, and has also filed several appeals to Utah or federal appellate courts.

David grew up in Salt Lake County, Utah and went to the University of Utah for his undergraduate studies. David attended graduate school and law school at St. Mary’s University.

Prior to working at Head Law, David worked at a prestigious litigation law firm—working primarily in personal injury, employment, and family law litigation—in Salt Lake County, Utah. David also previously worked at a prestigious criminal defense firm in Salt Lake County, Utah, and at a legal clinic in San Antonio, Texas performing legal services for indigent members of the community.

David has also acted as a chairperson for medical malpractice prelitigation panels for the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing. In Utah, medical malpractice claimants are required to appear and present their cases before the prelitigation panels prior to filing their cases in the Utah district courts. As a chairperson, David conducted the panels, evaluated the cases with the other panel members, issued decisions for each case, and drafted panel opinions.

When David is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and family, painting, writing, and watching mixed martial arts.
