David M. Paris, managing partner with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, started with the firm in the mid 1970s when he served as a law clerk while attending the Cleveland Marshall College of Law. He became a principal in 1988 and began taking on managerial responsibilities. He then became managing partner in 2002.

For more than 30 years, David has been a trial lawyer, successfully representing clients in a wide variety of complex injury and wrongful death cases, including: defective products, medical malpractice, construction accidents, employer intentional torts, and motor vehicle collisions. At Nurenberg Paris, he chairs the class action department and has resolved consumer class action suits against insurance companies on behalf of a class of 600,000 members and against auto dealerships on behalf of 75,000 class members. David is a board certified civil trial specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, who has recovered in excess of $180 million dollars in settlements and verdicts for his clients.

Many of the cases he has championed have had a direct impact on the rights of consumers in Ohio. Some of the more notable decisions have been Baughman v. State Farm Mutual Insurance Co., 88 Ohio St. 3d 481 (2000) (establishing important criteria for certification of a consumer class action) and Holeton v. Crouse Cartage Co., 92 Ohio St. 3d 115 (2001) (our client was a companion case which declared Ohio’s workers’ compensation subrogation statute unconstitutional).
