David M. Paris, managing partner at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, started with the firm as a law clerk while attending the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Over the past 40 years, he has appeared in more than 50 jury trials and has represented thousands of injured victims as well as 700,000 consumers in class actions. He has achieved in excess of 50 seven-figure and eight-figure settlements and verdicts for his clients with more than $250 million in total recoveries.
Many of the cases he has championed have had a direct impact on the rights of consumers in Ohio. Some of the more notable decisions have been Baughman v. State Farm Mutual Insurance Co., 88 Ohio St. 3d 481 (2000) (establishing important criteria for certification of a consumer class action) and Holeton v. Crouse Cartage Co., 92 Ohio St. 3d 115 (2001) (our client was a companion case which declared Ohio’s workers’ compensation subrogation statute unconstitutional).
David has developed an expertise in and has successfully litigated cases involving wrongful death and catastrophic injuries, which have occurred in a variety of circumstances including defective products, medical negligence, construction sites, workplace activities, and trucking accidents.
David and his wife of 36 years currently live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. He’s proud of the close relationships he has with his two daughters—one is an Events Director in Manhattan’s fashion industry, and the other is a partner at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy. Out of the office, David and his wife enjoy skiing, traveling, and cruising on his motorcycle.
David lives by a few simple but effective mottos:
Prepare hard, play hard but fair.
Make good calls and don’t whine.
Be humble in victory.
Shake hands when you lose.
Learn from your mistakes.

“I was introduced to David Paris through a work associate. When we first met, I was very comfortable with the conversation and his frankness. During the long process relating to my case, David always kept me informed about how the proceedings were moving along. If I ever had any questions, David would either take my call right then or call me back as soon as he was available. David did not talk over my head and listened to me when I had concerns. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the specifics of my case and very honest in his dealings with me. I have come to think of David as more than my attorney. I also consider him a friend.”
“Dave is the best. A first rate person, a first rate trial lawyer, and the managing partner of a first rate firm. I am proud to have worked with Dave and his firm.”
“I was very pleased with how David handled my case. I appreciated his openness with me as we discussed the difficult parts of my case.”
“I endorse this lawyer. I have handled civil cases in virtually every state in the country. David is one of the best personal injury lawyers I have ever encountered. He is extraordinarily prepared at all times and thorough in all aspects. Unlike some lawyers, David’s word is “gold.” When he commits to doing something you can count on it being done. David clearly stands out amongst his peers.”
“David is an excellent attorney. He knows what to do and how to do. Perhaps most importantly, he is a professional.”
“David is an excellent advocate and a true gentleman. I hold him in the highest regard for the way that he handled my case and me as a person.”
