Real Estate & DUI Defense Lawyer Serving Philadelphia, PA

Attorney David Downey, arms crossed

David Downey

Attorney at Law

Before becoming an attorney, I built a career working in real estate — mortgage lending to be exact. Having worked through the market crash of 2008, I was forced to expand my knowledge and services in order to continue making a living. With an in-depth understanding of real estate and an educational background in business law, I decided to pursue a career that would allow me to manage my own business and help others in need. Since graduating from Widener University Delaware Law School, I've focused my legal career on assisting clients through real estate matters, DUI and traffic violations, and fighting for just compensation for auto accident victims.


Helping You Protect Your Rights & Freedom

While a traffic ticket for speeding or failure to stop at a stop sign may seem inconsequential, the truth is that those minor offenses can add up and put your driver's license at risk. By working with an experienced defense attorney, you can fight to keep your driving record clean.

More serious traffic violations can include reckless driving or driving under the influence (DUI). You may not have even realized that you were driving "recklessly" when charged, and DUI accusation is much harder to defend, so you shouldn't try to navigate your defense case alone.

As an experienced DUI defense attorney, I can provide you with valuable advice and excellent representation against the prosecution. I'll fight to make sure you're treated fairly by the justice system, and that your rights and reputation remain in good standing.

When your freedom is on the line, it's easy to be overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. You can count on The Downey Firm, LLC to outline clear expectations of what to expect and guide you in the right direction every step of the way. Reach out today and put my skills to work for you.
