“David is a lawyer who is passionate about his work and committed to his clients,” Yarborough says. “I’ve watched him develop his talent as a litigator and having him as a partner in the firm was the logical next step.”
Since joining Yarborough Applegate, Lail has helped achieve over $106 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured individuals and families, and he exclusively represents those harmed by the actions of others.
“The firm is lucky to have an attorney like David,” Applegate says. “We look forward to his continued contributions to our clients and the firm in his new role.”
