David Kamp defies just about every (unfair) trial lawyer stereotype. Known more for his respectful, reasonable and compassionate demeanor than any cutthroat courtroom tactics, David is a family man and helper of people, who makes lives better. By his very nature a caring lawyer, David’s love of the law allows him to use his legal talents to accomplish his great desire to help those in need. His work ethic is legendary, his compassion authentic, and his intelligence outstanding. Seeing his clients greatly benefit from his legal acumen brings him great joy, and he has many friends whom he met on the other side of a case because he is able to communicate with respect to get the best result.
David’s accolades are many. A “lawyer’s lawyer,” David has “one of the most creative legal minds.” His “ability to work with a set of facts and craft a legal strategy, direction and theme [is] a beautiful thing to observe.” He is, therefore, a greatly sought-after mediator of disputes.
David received his undergraduate degree in 1978 from Thomas More College and graduated from the UC College of Law in 1981, where he served on the Editorial Board of the Law Review. He clerked at the firm of Rendigs, Fry, Kiely & Dennis while attending law school, then worked for the firm of Dinsmore & Shohl, before joining White, Getgey & Meyer in 1987, where he has been the Managing Partner since 1989.
David is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a member of the Ohio Association for Justice and has been named an Ohio Super Lawyer from 2004 to the present, with top-three ratings for the past six years. He takes great pleasure in providing hands-on training to young lawyers at UC’s annual National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
His greatest loves, however, are his wife of more than 30 years, Eileen, daughter Jenny, sons Jeff and Evan, and grandson Corran.
