About David J. Faber

David lawyers so you don't have to.

David is a native of Port Townsend, WA. He grew up on the hard streets of east Jefferson County, playing at the Rec Center and making art at the Boiler Room. After college, David worked as a cook at Sirens Pub in downtown PT. David grew restless, however, and, after deciding he wanted to help people seek justice, he enrolled in law school. David received his J.D. from Seattle University School of Law, and his LL.M. from University of Washington School of Law. After graduating, David volunteered at Landesa (formerly the Rural Development Institute) before entering the paid workforce, first at Perkins Coie on a short-term contract, and then at the Yakama Nation Office of Legal Counsel. Throughout this period, however, David was afflicted with acute pangs for home. Determined to return to Port Townsend, David convinced his wife, Laura, and his business partner and good friend, Sam, to move to PT, where Faber Feinson PLLC was established in the spring of '14 (gold in them thar hills).
