David Cohen joined Miller Wells, PLLC as counsel in 2014. Prior to joining Miller Wells, David spent over ten years in the Lexington office of McBrayer, McGinnis, Leslie & Kirkland, PLLC, practicing primarily in the areas of commercial and complex litigation, creditor's rights/bankruptcy, and equine law. Before that, he spent three years with a Lexington-based boutique litigation firm where his practice focused primarily in the areas of complex litigation, mass torts, and public utilities.

Throughout his legal career, David's practice has been devoted approximately two thirds to litigated matters (including litigation associated with his transactional clients), and one third to transactional matters, serving both individuals and businesses of all sizes. He has practiced litigation matters in state and federal court and before administrative agencies, at the trial and appellate level in approximately 15 jurisdictions.

David has been regularly recognized by judges and by other counsel for his particular facility with drafting pleadings, major substantive motions (and appellate pleadings, when necessary) in complex litigation matters; and for distilling complex legal concepts into manageable prose. He has regularly worked on transactional matters in the energy, equine and commercial financing sectors, including large transactions in the several million dollar range.

Outside of his law practice, David serves as a member of the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government's Historic Preservation Commission, and recently completed a term on the Board of Directors of the Fayette County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. Since 2007, he has been active in site-based decision making groups in the Fayette County Public Schools, first at Glendover Elementary School and most recently at Morton Middle School; and has been a regular participant in the FCPS Super Council.
