“I believe that with privilege comes responsibility, and that our responsibility is to invest in the lives of others.”
David is a people person. He is energized by spending time with people and getting to know who they are and how he can help them.
Before attending Osgoode Law School at York University to acquire his law degree, David attended Wilfrid Laurier University in the Business Administration program. His undergraduate degree proves invaluable in advising his corporate and commercial clients.
David has been practicing law for 40 years in Waterloo with his partners Bill and Peter (retired). These friends have built a practice based on the premise that they would help one another and their clients reach important professional and personal goals.
David represents and advises a significant number of registered charities and not-for-profit corporations in many areas such as incorporation, corporate governance and by-law development, foreign programming, and charitable registrations. His clients include faith-based organizations, academic institutions, and social service and cultural organizations.
He acts for a wide range of corporate and commercial clients, providing advice on incorporations, corporate reorganizations, the purchase and sale of businesses, shareholder, partnership, and joint venture agreements.
David also provides his clients with residential and commercial real estate expertise.
Through his wills and estates practice, David works with people to put their minds at ease regarding the important decisions which impact a person’s legacy and care at the end of their lives.

David is active on the board at his church and sits on the boards of a number of registered charities which are active locally and internationally.
In his limited free time, David enjoys spending time with his wife and children, especially his grandchildren, at their home or cottage. The Amy clan are known for their hospitality and welcome, which in no small part has been impacted by David’s belief in investing in the lives of others.
