Bio

David A. Bamdad Chairs the firm’s Trust & Estate Litigation Practice Group and is a Partner in the Trusts & Estates and Mental Health, Guardianship & Elder Law Litigation Practice Groups. In his practice, David regularly counsels fiduciaries, beneficiaries and distributees in contested and uncontested probate and administration proceedings, contested estate and trust accounting proceedings, fiduciary removal proceedings, trust construction matters, discovery and turnover proceedings, and other trust and estate related matters before the Surrogate’s Court and other trial and appellate courts. David is also regularly appointed by Surrogates as a Guardian ad Litem to represent individuals who cannot protect their own rights and interests, and lectures on topics related to trusts and estates litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, David was an Associate at a New York City law firm where he counseled clients, such as the Public Administrators of the Counties of New York and Kings, in all phases of estate administration and litigation, including representing estate fiduciaries in contested and uncontested probate and administration proceedings, wrongful death compromise proceedings, contested accounting proceedings and fiduciary removal proceedings. He also conducted forensic accountings to surcharge guardians for the improper administration and conversion of guardianship assets.

David received his J.D., cum laude, from Hofstra University School of Law, where he served as the Research Editor of the Hofstra Law Review and was the recipient of the Hofstra Law Review Kenneth S. Horton Award of Excellence. He received his B.A. in Philosophy, Politics and Law from Binghamton University.

After law school, David served as a law fellow to the Honorable Sandra L. Sgroi of the Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department.

David is an avid New York Knicks fan and lives on Long Island with his wife, Tal, a physical therapist, and their three children.
