David Butler has devoted his career to helping families cope with mesothelioma and other diseases caused by asbestos exposure.
Butler is a 1993 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of law and holds an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Florida State University. He began representing mesothelioma and other asbestos victims in 1993.
As a young lawyer, Butler spent months at a time combing through company records to build asbestos liability cases against manufacturers and employers on behalf of individuals who were exposed. Since then, he has helped thousands of asbestos victims from a variety of occupational backgrounds throughout the United States. He joined RPWB when the firm was founded in 2002.
With a depth of knowledge about occupational hazards and job sites throughout the United States, Butler is committed to providing his clients with personal attention, compassion and understanding as he builds the best possible case on their behalf to seek adequate compensation for medical treatments and the pain and suffering they endure. He tailors his approach based on his clients’ needs and wishes.
Butler has a technical background and empathy for workers. Born and raised in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, Butler studied engineering before law school and uses his technical background to benefit his clients in complicated products liability and toxic tort cases.
Aside from asbestos litigation, Butler has extensive experience in other product liability cases, consumer fraud and railroad accidents.
Butler is married, has three daughters and is a die-hard Florida State football fan.
