David Simkins


David Simkins focuses his practice on personal injury cases, including premises liability, wrongful death, and catastrophic injury cases. Dave graduated with honors from the University of Missouri-Columbia’s School of Journalism in 1990 and graduated cum laude from St. Louis University School of Law in 1995. 

Following graduation, Dave clerked for the Honorable Thomas Welch at the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Illinois. From 1999-2021, Dave did predominately insurance defense work at three St. Louis firms and conducted approximately 30 jury trials in Missouri and Illinois, including some with over $1,000,000 at stake. He’s also been named to several Super Lawyers lists for the work he’s done for his clients.

Having grown increasingly disenchanted working with insurance companies, Dave was thrilled with the opportunity to focus his practice on representing injured people. As a part of the Cofman Townsley team, Dave can help people stand up for the compensation they deserve from insurance companies.

Dave continues to be licensed in both Missouri and Illinois.
