David Mead has a special aversion for those that abuse neglect or exploit the young, elderly or infirm. It’s one of the reasons he became a probate attorney. Specializing in fiduciary litigation concerning estate and trust administration, he quickly identifies key issues and crafts creative solutions to unique and complex problems.

Believing that people should do what’s right, even when no one is watching, David represents his clients with integrity, compassion and effective strategies that produce positive results.

While in law school, David interned at Dallas Probate Court No. 3 for the Honorable Michael E Miller.

After graduating in 2010, David opened his own solo probate, guardianship, and estate planning practice. He was selected and served as a member of the Dallas Bar Association Probate Council and has served as a co-chairperson for the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers Elder Law Committee. He is an active member of the Probate, Trusts, and Estates Section of the Dallas Bar Association. David volunteers as an attorney for The Senior Source and serves on its Advisory Committee for the Guardianship Program. He has made several community and professional presentations on probate and guardianship related matters. He has served many North Texas Courts as a court-appointed administrator, guardian, trustee, receiver, attorney ad litem, and guardian ad litem.
