David Lin

David Lin has been litigating cases involving financial malfeasance since 2010. David began his career in New York, representing corporations in intellectual property and antitrust matters. After a little over a year, he realized that he was on the wrong side of the courtroom and the wrong side of the country.

In 2011, David moved to San Diego to join a plaintiff's firm handling large-scale securities and antitrust class action cases. Since moving to San Diego, David has volunteered for the California Innocence Project and provided pro bono representation in immigration court to clients of Casa Cornelia Law Center. David also volunteered his time judging moot court competitions at the University of San Diego and helping with the San Diego county high school mock trial tournament. David left his prior firm to work for San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, Inc., where he helped low-income clients deal with issues involving domestic violence, child custody, and guardianship. After that, David joined Graham Hollis because he wanted to use his experience and expertise to help workers recover their rightful earnings and hold employers accountable.

David graduated from UCSD with a degree in physics and earned his law degree from Northwestern University. He enjoys surfing, theater, and podcasts about bad movies. He spends most of his free time trying to get his son to go to sleep and/or stay asleep.
