David started Murray Law in 2022 after 13 years with a small firm in Charlotte where he had a leading role in the firm's eminent domain and zoning law practice. Murray Law focuses exclusively on eminent domain, zoning and land use law and litigation. As a property rights attorney, David has always remained committed to working for property owners, often against the government. David primarily represents individuals and businesses in land condemnation and eminent domain trial litigation, but also in obtaining zoning permits and variances, litigating zoning appeals before local boards, and resolving contract, covenant, and easement disputes between landowners. David has represented a broad spectrum of people and businesses in property-related matters including homeowners, places of worship, convenience store gas stations, restaurants (sit-down and fast food), farms, country clubs, subdivision developments, warehouses, small business owners, car sales lots, and hotels. David has been selected to the North Carolina Super Lawyers Rising Stars list every year since 2015 for his eminent domain work and Best Lawyers in America since 2021 for his land use, zoning, eminent domain and land condemnation practice. David was born in Charlotte, grew up in Greenwood, SC, and graduated from high school in Hendersonville, NC. He met his wife in law school and they have one daughter.
