SHJ Welcomes Dave Finkel
We are thrilled to announce that Dave Finkel has joined Schiffer Hicks Johnson as an associate. Dave’s practice centers on complex commercial litigation. As a former federal clerk in both district and circuit courts, he has experience overseeing the entire lifecycle of a case, from pre-trial through appeal.
Previously, Dave clerked for the Honorable Timothy M. Tymkovich of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and as a clerk for the Honorable Jeffrey V. Brown of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division. He obtained a J.D. from The University of Chicago Law School and a B.S. from the United States Military Academy.
“SHJ’s quality of work and collaborative spirit made an impact when I summered here in 2020,” Dave commented. “As I’ve stayed in touch with the firm over the years, I’ve watched SHJ grow in new and exciting ways. Now, I have the opportunity to grow my own practice while contributing to the firm’s momentum. It’s an ideal place to launch a career as a trial lawyer.”
“As a summer associate, Dave impressed us with his enthusiasm, drive, and commitment to excellence,” said managing partner Andy Hicks. “We’re excited to welcome him back to the firm. His experience with the judiciary will be a valuable asset to our trial and appellate teams.”
