For 30 years David was an attorney at Newby Lewis Kaminski and Jones in LaPorte, Indiana.  While there David successfully tried to jury both plaintiff and defense cases involving injury or death from vehicle accidents, product defects, animal bites and slip/fall accidents. He also has extensive experience in medical malpractice claims. 

David is an experienced and certified mediator.

In 2024, David moved back to the family farm in Martin County and opened his Mediation Practice.

He is a 7th-generation “Jones” from Martin County. Like most early settlers his ancestors were farmers. In 1879, his 3rd great grandfather Mac Jones was commissioned as a Justice of the Peace. David’s second great-grandfather, first great-grandfather, and grandfather were all born in Lost River Township, Martin County.  Both his parents grew up here and attended Loogootee High School and Indiana University.
