David A. Francis
Director of Claims
David A. Francis
David Francis was born in Salt Lake City and raised in Teton, Idaho prior to graduating from Brigham Young University and California Western School of Law with honors. David's interest and passion for personal injury law began when he was sixteen years old. It was then that his sister, Suzie, was killed in Idaho in a motor vehicle accident as a fault free passenger. David watched the insurance company attempt to place a value of $32,000 on his sister's life, despite there being a $1,000,000 policy available for the claim. David learned early on that even though an insurance company says they will take care of you, they don't always do that. David has used this and other experiences with him to assist in the best possible outcome for a claim.
In his spare time, David loves to create memories with his family by exploring the Wasatch Mountain Range through hiking, backpacking and skiing. David is an avid cyclist and was a member of the US Cycling Team for three years. During his time on the team David lived in France, Mexico and raced internationally. His teammates included Lance Armstrong, Jonathan Vaughters and George Hincapie, among others.
