David Dearing, who joined Beasley Allen in April, is working in the firm’s Mass Torts Section. He will be working primarily on cases in the Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) litigation. HRT, including drugs such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera, was prescribed to treat the symptoms of menopause until 2002, when a comprehensive women’s health study was halted as a result of increasing incidents of breast cancer. The drugs also were promoted for off-label uses, including prevention of cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Our firm is heavily involved in this litigation and David coming aboard will help us greatly.
David received his law degree in 1991 from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, where he served as Associate Editor of the Cumberland Law Review. Prior to law school, David attended Furman University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics.
David is from Jacksonville, Fla., and has been a trial lawyer for more than 20 years. He served four years as an Assistant State Attorney in both the Fourth and Eighth Judicial Circuits in Florida. Since leaving his work as a prosecutor, David’s practice areas included wrongful death, personal injury, products liability, workers’ compensation, and criminal defense. He was recently named one of Florida Trend Magazine’s 2011 Florida Legal Elite, and has the highest possible rating in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards by Martindale-Hubbell. David is a member of The Florida Bar Association; Florida Justice Association; American Inns of Court; The Million Dollar Advocates Forum; and The Christian Legal Society. He is admitted to the Federal District Court, Middle District of Florida.
David met his wife, the former Vicki Millo, in law school, and they have been married for 20 years. Vicki is a Professor of Law at Florida Coastal School of Law. They have two teenage children, and they are active members of New Grace Church, where they each teach Sunday School. David served as New Grace’s chancellor. Between their children’s various sporting events, David and Vicki enjoy travelling and spending time on the water. David has already moved to Montgomery and Vicki and the children will come after school is out. We are fortunate to have a lawyer with David’s ability and vast experience come with us.
