David Drexler is an unusually gifted Attorney with a unique background that has contributed to him being recognized as one of the most preeminent Personal Injury Attorneys in Los Angeles and the entire State of California.
David has been practicing Personal Injury Law for over 36 years and has recovered over $150 million dollars on behalf of his clients. LA Direct Magazine has proclaimed David Drexler “A Big City Attorney with Small Town Values.” LA Magazine has, for six successive years, named David “A Super Lawyer” in the field of Personal Injury Law and David has been nominated “Trial Attorney of the Year”.
David Drexler was born in Los Angeles, the son of Holocaust survivors. “People go through life unaware of what ends up affecting the course of their lives,” said David. “When I think back as far as I can, I was nurtured with a deep and profound sense of Justice and a deep rooted desire to protect victimized people. I’m sure my Mother’s experience surviving the horrors of the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp had a lot to do with that.”
David worked throughout his school years at his parents’ landmark Jewish Delicatessen in the San Fernando Valley, Drexler’s Deli. “This is where I spent so much of my time listening to people talk about their lives and their struggles,” says David. “I learned many things working at the deli, but the most important things I learned were compassion for people and their problems. People are basically good; I like people and love trying to help in any way that I can.”
Drexler’s interest in Justice and social issues guided him to the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), where he studied and earned his degree in Political Science, graduating Summa Cum Laude, with highest honors and was bestowed the Phi Beta Kappa honor, the nation’s oldest Academic Honor Society.
David then went on to study International Law and Diplomacy at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington DC, where he earned his Masters Degree in International Law and Diplomacy. “At that point I was still focused on helping people and serving Justice,” says David. “I was interested in Public Policy, but was always feeling myself pulled toward hands-on ways of directly helping people in their hour of need.”
After being conferred a Master’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University, David was accepted to the Loyola University School of Law, in Los Angeles, where he studied Law. “I’m a people person,” says David. “I knew that by becoming an Attorney I would be in a better position to do what is necessary, in the real world, to help people.” After graduating Law School, passing the California Bar in his first attempt, David began practicing Personal Injury Law. “I’m still affecting positive change in the world and fighting for Justice. Except now,” David says, “I’m doing it one person at a time, one case at a time.”
Attorney David Drexler is licensed to practice Law in all California Courts, including the Court of Appeals, Federal Court and the United States Supreme Court.
Over the years, David Drexler has helped clients, in every imaginable context, in cases such as Vehicle Accidents, Brain Injuries, Medical Malpractice, Birth Injuries, Products Liability, Construction Accidents, Animal Bites, Sexual Abuse, Slip and Fall accidents, Premises Liability, Burn Injuries, Elder Abuse, Legal Malpractice, Business Torts and other types of Personal Injury cases.
While the roots of David’s strong personal beliefs about Compassion and Justice are tried and true, it is his “Client for Life” Philosophy that lies at the foundation of his legal practice.
“When people become clients, they become a Client for Life,” says David. “They can drop in unannounced or call when they or their families are having problems. We don’t charge for that.”
This “Client for Life” philosophy is responsible for engendering the sort of loyalty that brings clients back, after thirty years, to visit and stay in touch with David and his team. It is one of the important ways that differentiates David Drexler’s law practice from the rest of the Personal Injury Law firms in Los Angeles.
