Real Estate & Beyond the Fine Print



David Zobel assists clients with business and litigation matters, primarily in the areas of contract, banking, insurance, and real estate issues.  David is also a litigator for the firm’s commercial, probate, and insurance-related practices, handling general litigation, trust and probate litigation, title defense, surety defense, and professional malpractice disputes.

While the majority of David’s clients are small to midsize companies, he regularly counsels individuals, associations, financial institutions, underwriters, sureties, and other insurers.  When serving his clients, David utilizes a direct, cost-effective, and common sense approach to evaluate, manage, and timely resolve client risks and claims.

David’s experience includes all stages of representation, from a limited consultation to assistance throughout the trial and appellate court system, and at all stages between.  Along with Danna McKitrick attorney Jeffrey R. Schmitt, David successfully argued Naylor Senior Citizens Housing, LP, et al. v. Sides Construction Company, Inc., et al. before the Missouri Supreme Court. The case clarified the restrictions imposed upon business entities appearing before Missouri courts.

Outside of the firm, David attempts to golf and enjoys boating at the Ozarks as well as volunteering in his local communities.  David was appointed to the Board of Adjustment for the City of Olivette, Board of Directors for the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, and additionally serves as trustee of his homeowner’s association.  Prior to joining Danna McKitrick, he worked with the Missouri Court of Appeals and also handled personal injury and wrongful death matters at a personal injury firm.
