David Hammond, Esq. is a former military defense lawyer and prosecutor and has over a decade of experience fighting for the rights of service members and their families. In addition to this, he served nine years and went on two combat tours as an active duty US Army officer. He then joined the Reserves and moved to Syracuse to be near his family.

During his time in the Army, David helped commanders and leaders in combat understand the legal parameters of warfare. As a prosecutor, he sharpened his trial skills in the courtroom and moved on to help hundreds of different servicemen and women accused of serious criminal offenses on appeal. 

Now representing clients throughout Central New York charged with traffic offenses, David puts the same amount of commitment into his law practice for civilians. 

Not only does he defend the rights of Central New Yorkers, but he also has a veteran-focused practice. David represents servicemen and women before the military appellate courts and takes cases to fix service members’ military records. 

David earned his B.A. from North Carolina State University, magna cum laude. He then attended Syracuse University College of Law to earn his J.D., summa cum laude.
