David focuses his practice in commercial litigation. He believes in a personal approach to the law, connecting with clients, understanding their goals, taking on their problems as his own, and ultimately formulating the best approach to resolve those problems and reach those goals.

David has tried numerous cases to verdict in Cook County and was part of the trial team that secured the largest judgment in Illinois in 2016 in a case arising under the False Claim Act.

In 2010 through 2013 and 2015 through 2020 Super Lawyers named David as being one of less than 2.5% of Illinois attorneys under age 40 selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars. In 2016 David was named to the 2016 Chicago Jewish 36 Under 36 List by the Jewish United Fund.

Much of David’s career was spent with Much Shelist, P.C., a Chicago litigation powerhouse ranked by Chambers USA and perennially named one of the Best Law Firms in America.

David has extensive experience in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation. Although David prefers to resolve disputes in a collaborative fashion – and do so prior to litigation arising – he recognizes the need to aggressively pursue and protect his clients’ interests in court. He has experience in construction disputes, real estate disputes, sophisticated insurance coverage disputes, and general business disputes.

David regularly represents owners, architects, contractors, and subcontractors in legal matters pertaining to construction and design. Whether it is drafting construction contracts at the outset of a project to minimize the likelihood of litigation, helping resolve disputes that arise during construction, or representing parties in litigation, David has experience from the start of the project through completion. David frequently represents clients in matters involving construction defects, property damage, breaches of contract, delays and mechanics liens, among other issues.

David has authored and co-authored articles, book chapters and other publications relating to litigation, including the “Trial Practice: Pleading Practice” chapter for the 2010 edition of IICLE’s Mechanics Liens in Illinois. David also previously served as the Chair of the Construction Law and Mechanics Lien Subcommittee of the Chicago Bar Association.

Client Reviews
Alex is a very aggressive and hardworking attorney. Alex settled my Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act case for double the amount my prior attorney asked for when the lawsuit was originally filed. I highly recommend Alex Loftus for any unpaid wage or commission claims. David R.
Alexander is a very detailed , highly educated attorney. Alexander represented me in a breach of Fiduciary and breach of contract case with a bank. Great job, great recommendations from Alexander on what to do and how to react to their nonsense and lies. we won the cases. Alexander really takes the time to make sure everything is done correctly and within the law. Mike M.
Attorney Loftus is prompt and highly skilled. I am an artist and he was swift to protect my professional work portfolio and contract with his knowledge of copyright law. Attorney Loftus is bold, professional and compassionate. Amber V.
