David Zevan

David M. Zevan is a founding partner of the firm and a successful trial lawyer serving personal injury and medical malpractice victims across Missouri and Illinois. Upon completing law school, David worked in the St. Louis City Counselor’s office, where he gained tremendous experience representing the St. Louis City Police Department as well as the doctors and nurses at St. Louis Regional Medical Center.

Along with Kevin J. Davidson (1964 – 2015), David formed the law firm of Zevan and Davidson in 1995. On behalf of deserving clients, they handled complex personal injury cases and delivered record-setting victories to their clients. Over the years, they earned several awards and recognition, but they are most proud of the gratitude of the people they have helped during difficult times.

In 1997, David was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, forcing him to balance a rigorous chemotherapy schedule with a full case schedule. Now, he feels the experience has given him a unique perspective in understanding the challenges faced by injury victims and motivated his desire to provide them with quality legal counsel.

In 2024, David formed the law firm of Zevan Murphy with Morgan Murphy to continue their commitment to representing the injured residents of Missouri and Illinois.
