David Bastian draws on his trial and appellate experience gained from serving as an associate at a large civil litigation firm, as an assistant district attorney, and as an intern for two Massachusetts judges to advise his clients on criminal and complex civil litigation matters and in government investigations.

He handles cases across a range of industries, including health care, financial services, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and education. Fluent in German and a dual U.S./German citizen, David is an asset to teams handling matters with international components. David also devotes a significant portion of his time to conviction integrity matters. He is currently handling a pro bono case on behalf of the New England Innocence Project, advocating for an individual who asserts his innocence after being convicted of serious crimes.

Prior to working in private practice, David served as an assistant district attorney in the Appeals and Training Bureau of the Middlesex District Attorney's Office. While there, he argued several cases before the Massachusetts Appeals Court and advised detectives of the Massachusetts State Police on search warrant matters during homicide investigations.

While in law school, David interned for The Honorable Denise J. Casper of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and The Honorable Patricia A. Flynn of the Massachusetts Juvenile Court. He was also awarded the Jurisprudence Award for Excellent Achievement in the Study of Professional Responsibility and the Study of Evidence.
