David concentrates his practice of law on litigation, with a special focus on personal injury, medical malpractice, and dental malpractice. Mr. Monteleone’s educational and professional background uniquely qualifies him as one of the leading litigation attorneys in Winnebago County.

His reputation in the community is that of an aggressive and diligent attorney whose understanding and grasp of the law is well established and unparalleled. He has devoted his career to representing tort victims and taking on defendants who put profits over people.

He is a skilled attorney with many years of experience who consistently meets and exceeds his clients’ expectations. His successful track record is extensive, with many litigation victories at both the trial and appellate levels.

Many of his cases settle prior to trial due to his excellent trial preparation and his determination to achieve the best result for his clients. If trial becomes necessary, he and the law firm do not back down, having earned a reputation as excellent trial advocates over the years. Above all, Mr. Monteleone prides himself on putting his clients’ wellbeing first. Mr. Monteleone received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of San Diego in 1991.

He sat for and passed the California Bar Exam, and he maintains his California law license. He returned to Illinois, passed the Illinois Bar Exam, and began representing personal injury and wrongful death tort victims. His advocacy of tort victims extends to the appellate court system, successfully arguing and litigating cases in the Illinois Appellate and Supreme Court.

Interestingly, Attorney Monteleone is also Dr. Monteleone. In 1988, he graduated from the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry. After passing state and national board examinations, he opted to change career paths and enrolled in law school. He continues to maintain his dental license and his medical background uniquely qualifies him for the presentation of clients who have either been hurt by a medical professional and/or have required medical care as the result of another’s negligence. Very few attorneys can match Attorney Monteleone’s medical-legal credentials. And none can surpass his dedication to representing tort victims or his determination to bring injury-causing defendants to justice.

Attorney Monteleone also attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana prior to dental school. He maintains strong ties to the community and prides himself on making Rockford a safer and more just place to live. He is a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, and American Association for Justice, and the Winnebago County Bar Association.
