David joined the residential conveyancing department at Walker Foster in 2007 as a Solicitor. Based initially at the firm’s Ilkley office, he very quickly became well known and respected as a leading conveyancing force among people looking for conveyancing services and with local estate agents and other businesses in this busy, vibrant town. He continued to work at the Ilkley office until July 2016 when he moved to the Skipton office to step into the shoes of a senior conveyancing partner who retired in the summer of 2016.

Since moving to the Skipton office, David has continued to build up a significant following in the community and has excellent referral relationships with a number of estate agents and other property professionals, so much so that he remains one of the firm’s busiest fee earners. He is the joint head of conveyancing with director Ian Haynes.

David is respected in the business community and is well known for his expertise, depth of knowledge across all areas of conveyancing and his ability to find solutions to difficult legal problems. David deals with all types of residential property and acts for a number of property developers and investors in relation to acquisitions and disposals.

Clients appreciate David’s down to earth approach and commitment to helping them get to where they want to be.

There is no doubt that David has a firm track record for delivering a first-class service in a timely and personable way and clients continue to appreciate this and regard him as their Solicitor for life!
