Meet The Team

  Dave Ganderton

Founder & Managing Partner
 

Dave Ganderton has 17 years of relevant legal experience.

 

However, Dave’s journey into the legal field began in undergrad, 23 years ago, at the Florida State University, when he took a “psychology and the law” class.  The class had a guest speaker who made a significant impact on Dave’s life.  The speaker was a local prosecutor who discussed how the State Attorney’s Office prosecuted cases for the state, on behalf of victims.  He spoke about how the State Attorney’s Office would investigate cases, built their cases from the ground-up, and ultimately take those cases to jury trial if they were unable to reach an agreement.  Dave knew, as he listened to this presentation that this was what he wanted to do for a living – he wanted to help others seek justice. 

After graduating from Florida State, Cum Laude, with a BS in psychology and minor in criminology, Dave went to law school at Stetson University College of Law – Florida’s oldest and most established law school.  During his final year of law school, Dave interned at the State Attorney’s Office, in a juvenile division, and got his first experience trying cases.  After graduating from Stetson Law in 2007, Dave took a position as an Assistant State Attorney in Sarasota, Florida, and lived out his dream of prosecuting cases and helping victims. 

Working as a prosecutor fueled Dave’s passion for working on behalf of victims and building cases from the ground up.  In 2009, he moved to Colorado and lateraled into a position as a Deputy District Attorney where he prosecuted felony cases until 2011.

 

After leaving the DA's office, Dave went on to work as an insurance defense attorney where he worked for major insurance companies primarily on car accident cases, personal injury cases, and bad faith litigation.   During his time working for “the other side,” he learned what the insurance companies were looking for from a plaintiff and a plaintiff’s attorney, and what could be used to help, or hurt, a persons’ claim. 

Toward the end of 2013, wanting to get back to helping victims seek justice, and now understanding the inner workings of insurance companies, he opened a personal injury law firm, and for the past decade he has been handling personal injury claims on behalf of victims. 

The trial and actual court room experience Dave received from working as a prosecutor, combined with his experience working as an insurance defense attorney becomes invaluable when working on your personal injury claim.

Dave has represented, and litigated against, some of the largest insurance companies in the nation.  He has tried multi-million dollar cases, and obtained multi-million dollar settlements for victims of negligent acts.  Dave knows what insurance companies look for, and knows how to present your case to a jury if it ever gets to that point.

With experience, passion and communication, there is simply no better attorney to represent you against an at-fault party or insurance company than Dave Ganderton with Ganderton Law.
