David Gingras, Attorney

Gingras Law

David Gingras is an attorney based in Phoenix, Arizona. He is currently licensed to practice in Arizona and California, but has appeared nationwide in numerous state and federal lawsuits.

David received his Bachelor of Science degree with a major in real estate from Arizona State University in 1994, and his Juris Doctorate degree from University of San Francisco School of Law in 2000 where he was a member of the Law Review.

David began his legal career in Arizona working for a small, five-attorney firm in Tempe where he handled a wide variety of civil matters including family law, bankruptcy, and general civil litigation.

In 2005, David joined a mid-sized firm in Phoenix (Jaburg Wilk PC). There, he expanded his practice to focus on intellectual property and Internet-related matters, including defending cases against website owners involving claims such as copyright infringement, defamation, trademark infringement, and similar civil claims.

A key area of David’s practice focuses on a specific federal law called the “Communications Decency Act” or “CDA”, 47 U.S.C. § 230, an area of law in which David has become a nationally recognized expert. In general, the CDA governs most civil claims arising from content posted online, such as a negative product review on Amazon or false/defamatory comments posted on social media sites like Facebook.

David has served as lead trial and appellate counsel in more than 50 cases involving the Communications Decency Act and related issues. Some representative examples include: Jones v.Dirty World Ent. Recordings, LLC, 755 F.3d 398 (6th Cir. 2014); Global Royalties, Ltd. v. Xcentric Ventures, LLC, 544 F.Supp.2d 929 (D.Ariz. 2008); Crabtree v.

Wolf, 519 F.Supp.2d 1014 (D.Ariz. 2007), and many others.
