About David L. Fleck


David prosecuted felonies and complex financial crimes for the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office from 1999 until 2009. His cases included all kinds of white collar criminal enterprises involving business fraud, investment fraud, identity theft, money laundering, insurance fraud and loan fraud. Now he represents business owners, whose business partners cheated them using a fraudulent scheme. He has represented clients from China, Mexico, Israel, Iran, Armenia, the Ukraine, Vietnam, Peru, Lebanon, Hungary, Jordan, and Romania as well as numerous US business owners. David uses all his resources to recover his clients’ funds and dignity, so they can once again prosper in business.

David also represents those business owners who have been accused of fraud either by a law enforcement agency or by a plaintiff in a civil lawsuit. David vigorously defends those who have been wrongly accused. Contact David as soon as you know there is an investigation underway because there are more defense strategies available before charges are filed.


If your company collects and stores personal, medical or financial data about employees, clients or customers, it is almost inevitable that your computer system will be hacked. David can advise companies about their responsibilities under California and U.S. data protection and privacy laws. He can help U.S. companies obtain certification under and comply with the US-EU Safe Harbor program for data sharing. He can help companies evaluate their risks, develop prevention and response protocols, and draft a Privacy and Cyber Security Handbook. Finally, if there is a breach, David can help companies navigate the minefields of litigation either as litigation counsel himself or by managing litigation counsel.


David is an avid teacher, and his interactive style leaves his audiences engaged and asking for more. He honed his instructional skills as a college professor where he taught aspiring paralegals how to assist attorneys in litigation. He has provided training, seminars and presentations about fraud investigations to diverse audiences that included fraud detectives, the Mortgage Bankers Association, the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators, the American Conference Institute, the Federal Mortgage Fraud Working Group, Fannie Mae, the National Notary Association, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and several major financial institutions. He helped develop the curriculum that is currently used to teach California detectives how to investigate mortgage loan fraud.
