BOCA RATON, FL, January 07, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- David Shaheen has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Inspired by his father and the injustices witnessed in the present-day court system, Mr. Shaheen pursued a career in law. He began his litigation career prosecuting cases at the Office of the State Attorney in Broward County, seeking to protect the people of the 17th-most populous county in the United States by prosecuting for victims and withholding adjudication for the truly innocent, rather than being motivated by the sheer number of convictions. He then worked at Kubicki Draper, a civil litigation defense firm, defending insurance companies. However, this brief stint in the defense arena showed Mr. Shaheen that the true victims were the ones who could not face the juggernaut insurance companies alone, and who consistently used their financial and political resources to strong-arm the powerless into meager settlements by psychological and financial attrition.
Since 2015, Mr. Shaheen has found success representing the people of Florida who have been shorthanded by their insurance companies. In his position at Ged Lawyers, LLP, he co-heads the property insurance department while supervising and litigating all cases from their inception, all the way to resolution. Throughout his career, Mr. Shaheen has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and favorable jury verdicts, as he remains persistent in the fight to hold insurance companies accountable for their mishandling of claims, including denying and underpaying claims without explanation or foundation. Prior to his career at Ged Lawyers, LLP, Mr. Shaheen managed approximately 1,000 cases at Kanner & Pintaluga, P.A., as one of the lead trial attorneys. Mr. Shaheen's expertise and success earned him the accolade of Top Lawyer by Palm Beach Illustrated in 2019.
Mr. Shaheen earned his Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. Despite his high marks in school, Mr. Shaheen was heavily involved in his school's Honor societies, including being named as a Senior Associate for the Nova Law Review, a Justice of Competitions for Nova's Moot Court Team, and a trial member of Nova's Trial Team. Mr. Shaheen attained numerous awards and recognitions in school, including merit scholarships, Book Awards for the highest marks in a study, and no finish lower than the top 10 in national Moot Court competition.
Mr. Shaheen obtained a Bachelor of Science in business management administration from Villanova University, where he earned the recognition of the Big East All-Academic Team all four years, while being Captain of the Varsity Tennis team, playing both singles and doubles. Mr. Shaheen was also President and Founder of the Amendment One Society that promoted freedom of speech and expression.
A devoted community advocate, Mr. Shaheen also contributes to the less fortunate through Boca Raton Helping Hands, 4Kids Foster Care, and the high school ministry with Boca Raton Community Church.
Looking toward the future, Mr. Shaheen aims to continue to level the playing field by fighting for those who don't have the resources or the capacity to take on the giant insurance companies alone, while seeking to protect members of the community of all ages from being taken advantage of by the insurance companies.
