Senior Litigation Counsel

David Lavine

David began his career in the highly-selective Honors Program and as an Assistant United States Attorney at the United States Department of Justice, where he prosecuted immigration and narcotics crime, real estate and other financial fraud, and computer crime violations, among other cases.  Since then, he has brought civil cases and defended clients in the federal and state courts and in administrative proceedings. Along the way, he has lectured on criminal justice topics at training programs domestically and abroad, has taught litigation and trial lawyering skills at several law schools, and has served as a judge pro tem in the Los Angeles and San Francisco Superior Courts.

David is equipped to handle all aspects of your civil case and places the greatest value on client satisfaction – that each client is heard, and informs the overall legal strategy and the decisions taken in a case through its completion.  David understands that a successful trial result or settlement of a legal dispute may vindicate a client’s principled position — and, just as often, may propel. restore, or re-set a client on a path toward business success or individual well-being.    

David lives in San Francisco with his wife and twin children.  In his free time, he enjoys swimming, travel and classic rock.

About Our Firm

Our two-attorney law firm offers a broad range of litigation, transactional and mediation services for individuals and small businesses.

We practice wage and hour law where private or public employees are denied either regular or overtime wages, suffered missed meal or rest periods (breaks) or have been required to sign or are being sued for breaking “training reimbursement agreements”​ required by employers. We can assist in the review and/or negotiation of severance agreements.

If you operate a small business in California, we defend your enterprise against unsubstantiated wage claims, craft customized employee handbooks, Injury and Illness Prevention Plans (IIPPs), conduct workplace investigations, and draft business buy-sell agreements. We represent landlords in commercial and residential transactions and in evictions/unlawful detainer actions.

For the past fifteen years, we have served as counsel for the California Pawnbrokers Association and we represent over one hundred pawnbrokers, secondhand dealers and title lenders in California in a variety of regulatory and civil matters and business transactions.

From our first conversation they are very understanding and helpful. Jon has went over and beyond for me. He is very smart and on top of everything. Thank you for everything Mr. Webster.

    thumb Olivia G.
  •   This law firm helped my dad greatly through an age discrimination case. Would highly recommend.

    thumb Faye S.

    Do NOT trust this guy....  he LIES.   PERIOD.  

    NEVER trust a person who lies.  
    When would you know that he is not lying to you.  

    Based on my experience with him, he is a lire and an incompetent attorney - check his credentials to make sure he is worth what he charges you per hour.  

    He is only after getting your money and prolonging the case to get more money out of you.

    thumb Americola A.

      I would give them even 10 stars! Jon is very smart and straight to the point. I won one case with his help! I absolutely recommend him!!!

    thumb Marina K.
  •   I called Mr. Webster and he was so helpful. He was fully attentive to our needs, validated our issues, and gave us many solutions. We felt reassured with his extensive knowledge of the law and sound advice which prevented us from making a mistake. Any other lawyer wouldn't have offered me this help. I know because I talked to 10 other lawyers before I got a hold of him.
    We are very thankful for his time and effort.
    We definitely highly recommend him!

    thumb Maria P.

      These guys changed my view of the industry.  From Charles, to Dustin, to Jon himself, they had incredible diligence on working on my issue.
    They gave me an astounding bit of comfort with defending my rights.
    It took less than 24 hours for them to review what I presented them with and reach out to me.

    thumb Kolby V.

      We met with Mr. Webster as we needed help with recovering wages. He accommodated two in person meetings to listen to our concerns and provide valuable feedback. We appreciate Mr. Webster's time and input!

    thumb Farhan K.
  •   This review is for Dustin Burton. My family and I recently went through the unbearable loss of our mother. Emotionally, I was a wreck. I couldn't think straight, let alone think about all the paperwork and processes associated with ensuring her estate was taken care of. Dustin went above and beyond for us to ensure we were provided compassionate, competent, and professional legal services. He picked up and spoke to us on the phone and answered our questions. When he didn't know the answer, he researched the issue and followed up. He made several personal visits when paperwork needed to be signed and completed.  The services he provided included: legal research, will drafting, notary services, estate declarations, dispute resolution, and lodging documents with the court. Notably, Dustin provided these services during a worldwide pandemic. My family and I are incredibly grateful to have had Dustin help guide us through the most traumatic period of our lives. He is an incredible asset to this firm and a wonderful advocate for his clients.
