For over 30 years, David L. Meyerson has been litigating workers’ compensation, personal injury, and wrongful discharge cases. He is the head of the Workers' Compensation Litigation Department of Seaman & Associates. Dave is board-certified by the Ohio State Bar Association in Ohio Workers' Compensation Law, and is considered one of Ohio’s leading litigators in this area of the law.
For eight years, Dave has been named to the Ohio Super Lawyers® list of the top attorneys in Ohio, an award bestowed upon the top 5% percent of lawyers in Ohio.
Dave doesn’t like to blow his own horn – but he is actually very good at it. Dave is a gifted trumpet player. He began taking lessons when he was in second grade and by the time he was 11, he packed his bags for the first of many enjoyable summers at the prestigious Interlochen National Music Camp in Michigan.
“Playing the trumpet was a wonderfully enriching experience for me,” says Dave. “It fueled my lifelong love of music, and helped me meet and interact with many exceptional people from all walks of life. It also taught me how to be a good team member.”
