Experienced Nashville personal injury and social security disability lawyer

David has devoted his practice to fighting for the rights of the injured and aggrieved, representing individuals in personal injury, social security disability and insurance/contract disputes. A battle-tested litigator, he has tried more than 100 cases to verdict. Thanks to his legal prowess, work ethic, organization and passion for his clients, he has established an exceptional track record of success.

In 2008, David and his family relocated to Tennessee and he was hired by John Hollins, Sr., to run the civil litigation & personal injury practice. David is honored to be a partner at a firm committed to providing clients the best representation available. He firmly believes his clients deserve nothing less.

Everything Mr. Weissman said he would do, he did. Everything Mr. Weissman said would happen, happened. I can’t express how satisfied I am with Mr. Weissman’s representation.

David Weissman really helped me and my mother. As a teen developing into a young lady, I have never been so empowered. We never felt like we were just a case. They made sure we felt like we were apart of their family and I will forever remember that.
