David Dearing, who joined Beasley Allen in April 2012, practices in our Mass Torts section. He initially worked on the firm’s Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) litigation team, focusing on drugs such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera, which were shown to cause breast cancer in some women. David is now primarily working on two other classes of drugs in multidistrict litigation. Fosamax (alendronate sodium) was released on the U.S. market in 1995 and was prescribed to prevent and treat osteoporosis. However, prolonged use can actually lead to bone deterioration and consequential low-energy fractures, particularly of the femur. David is representing many clients who suffered spontaneous femur fractures as a result of Fosamax use.
David also represents clients injured from taking Januvia, Byetta, Janumet and Victoza. These four diabetes drugs are in a class of drugs known as incretin mimetics, and are intended to help diabetics regulate blood sugar levels. However, studies have shown these drugs can cause pancreatic and thyroid cancer.
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, he attended Furman University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Economics.
David is from Jacksonville, Fla. He 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. After his time as a criminal prosecutor, David’s practice areas on the civil side have included Wrongful Death, Personal Injury, Products Liability, Workers Compensation, and Criminal Defense. He was named one of Florida Trend Magazine’s Florida Legal Elite, as well as a Jacksonville “Top Lawyer” by 904 Magazine. David is rated AV Preeminent, the highest possible rating in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards by Martindale-Hubbell.
David is a member of the Alabama State Bar, the Montgomery County Bar Association, the Montgomery County Association for Justice, The Florida Bar Association, Florida Justice Association, American Inns of Court, The Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and The Christian Legal Society. He has been admitted to the United States District Court, Middle District of Alabama and Middle District of Florida. David has litigated in Federal and State Courts throughout the country.
David met his wife, the former Vicki Millo, in law school, and they have been married more than 20 years. Vicki recently joined the Beasley Allen team as a litigator in our Mass Torts Section after having spent the majority of her career as a Law Professor.
David and Vicki have two teenage children, 18 and 16. The family are members of Frazer United Methodist Church. Between attending their children’s various sporting events, David and Vicki enjoy traveling and spending time on the water. Sadly, David’s mother Norma Dearing died last month after a lengthy illness. The Dearing family needs our prayers.
We are blessed to have David in our firm. He is a very good lawyer who takes the work for his clients very seriously. He is dedicated to the truth and getting good results for them.
