David Myers serves as Senior Litigation Attorney for Southeastern Legal Foundation.
David has worked with Southeastern Legal Foundation since 2023, having spent more than 35 years as a commercial and constitutional litigator in both large and small firms. Joining SLF is a bit of circle-closing for David, who was co-counsel with SLF (while he was with a boutique Atlanta firm) in a case that successfully challenged Atlanta’s first domestic partner ordinance more than 30 years ago.
David’s dedication to constitutional liberty pre-dated law school, and during law school he had the pleasure of two summer internships with The Rutherford Institute, assisting with books and congressional testimony on constitutional issues such as the Equal Access Act and homeschooling. Immediately after law school, he was a judicial staff attorney for Hon. J. Owen Forrester (N.D. Ga.) for two years. In addition to commercial litigation, David has handled constitutional litigation, appeals, and Supreme Court amicus briefs and certiorari petitions on issues involving free speech, religious liberty, and other civil rights issues for individuals, churches, and religious organizations, and among others. One notable case resulted in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit affirming the striking down of the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Committee’s “speech code” for judicial candidates.
David received his undergraduate degree in Pre Law from Bob Jones University, his master’s degree in public policy studies from the University of Chicago, and his law degree from the University of Chicago Law School. He is a member of the Federalist Society and the Christian Legal Society.
David is married to a beautiful Dutch woman, who has taught him the intricacies of “Dutch Bingo.” He has four children and three stepchildren (all adults), as well as three grandchildren (a good start). He is an elder at his United Reformed church. He is a die-hard Braves fan and will eventually own another beautiful German Shepherd.
