Meet Our Biker Lawyers
DAVID COLE, Founder and Managing Partner
David grew up in a small Texas town where he learned the importance of community, the value of a hard day’s work, and the enjoyment of simple things like a ride through the Texas countryside on his motorcycle. He’s now married with a family of his own, and a law practice to show for his hard work. David appreciates the sense of freedom and happiness that riders get from being out on their bikes. So, when the opportunity came to partner with attorney Bill Ley to protect the rights of injured motorcyclists, it was a natural fit.
During more than two decades of fighting for accident victims, David has built a reputation of fearlessly taking on insurance companies, fighting “biker bias” in the courts, and ensuring that Texans injured in motorcycle accidents can get what they deserve. Because of his success with large life changing cases, David is a member of the prestigious Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group that recognizes trial lawyers who have won multi-million dollar cases. He is also a member of Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Bar Association.
David proudly works with bikers from all walks of life. Weekend warriors and life long riders; men and women; white collar or blue collar. Every client is treated with respect, and every effort is taken on their behalf to fight for the damages they are seeking. If you have an accident on your motorcycle, David wants to help you get maximum recovery.
