Experienced Environmental Litigator Joins McGrath North


McGrath North is excited to welcome D. David DeWald to our firm to join our Environmental and Litigation groups.

David, a Nebraska native, is returning to Omaha after serving five years as Senior Assistant Attorney General within the State of Wyoming’s Attorney General’s Office.  While in Wyoming, he supervised the Natural Resources Section, handled litigation and administrative contested cases on a broad variety of environmental matters, and served as a policy advisor to the Governor and his staff.  Prior to this, he practiced for five years in the commercial trial group of a national firm in its Omaha office and served as a law clerk to former Nebraska Supreme Court Justice John M. Gerrard.

“David brings significant environmental and litigation experience that deepens our capabilities to successfully support our business client needs in these areas across the country,” said Roger Wells, President of McGrath North.  “David and his family will be a great addition to McGrath North and the Omaha Community,” Wells added.

David received his J.D. from the University of Nebraska College of Law with High Distinction in 2010 and was recognized for his high achievements as a member of the Order of the Coif, Nebraska Law Review, and a recipient of the Prize for Outstanding Scholastic Achievement.  He received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nebraska in 2004.
