David Ong grew up in Indianapolis, IN. As the son of a federal prosecutor and a 5th generation attorney, he knew from an early age that he wanted to become a skilled trial attorney.
He attended the University of Colorado School of Law, where he excelled in numerous mock trial and transactional drafting competitions—including the Reilly-Pozner Mock Trial Competition, the Hogan Lovells Cup, and the CU/DU Transactional Drafting Competition. David further developed his litigation skills as a student attorney in the rigorous civil practice clinic, a role in which he represented clients in family law cases in Boulder District Court, social security disability cases before federal administrative law judges, and asylum cases before immigration law judges.
Outside of the courtroom, he worked closely with small Colorado businesses to evaluate venture capital transactions and the impact of outside investors on business structures as a member of the competitive venture capital investment team.
After graduating, David clerked for Honorable Judge J. Eric Elliff of the 2nd Judicial District Court (Denver, Colorado) as well as the Holt Group specializing in federal construction litigation in Denver.
David joined the Babcock Law Firm as a law clerk in 2016, serving our legal team by composing demand payment letters, drafting court motions, communicating with clients, conducting preliminary consultations, filing various pleadings, evaluating medical records, and more.
He is now an Associate Attorney, working alongside R. Mack Babcock and the rest of our Denver-based legal team to provide quality representation to all Coloradans. David brings unique experience from both his family roots and personal history of success in workers' compensation and personal injury cases in Denver and across the state.
David loves hiking, camping, snowboarding, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities, but especially mountain biking. He's also a music fanatic whose hobbies include playing drums and producing music. In addition, he enjoys spending time with friends, family, and his dog, Jaylyn.
David is a big sports fan as well, so in his spare time, you can probably find him at Coors Field cheering on the Rockies or in the Pepsi Center at a Denver Nuggets game — unless he's at home watching the Hoosiers or the Pacers play basketball, of course. He also cooks a mean gumbo.
"I grew up listening to stories about courtrooms and trials at the dinner table from my father, and I always knew I wanted to be a trial attorney, too. I've also always valued public service and the importance of helping the disadvantaged. The practice of workers' compensation and personal injury law allows me to do both. I get to meet and represent interesting people from all walks of life, and there are few things more enjoyable than sticking it to greedy insurance companies."
"I'm glad I decided to call your law firm and thank you from the button of my heart! "
"Your staff is amazing. Jane made the intake and outtake processes thorough and reliable--always supportive. Aiden consistently provided a professional and efficient connection--again always supportive. Stephanie: So honest and patient--she is unbelievable and such an incredible guide--especially for someone like me. I didn't know how or where to begin, or what to expect. I am so grateful for the support and most of all, for the means that I need to go forward with treatment. I am continuing with my primary care doctor, and a specialist, able to submit claims through my regular insurance. Thanks you so much for being there! Barbara"
"The Babcock Law Firm exceeded my expectations. I would not have received the special medical treatment I required if it weren't for Mack's resources and persistence, I would not have known how to handle unexpected complications if it weren't for Jan's professionalism and deliberateness, and I wouldn't have understood my rights or how to defend them if it weren't for the firm's thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and top-notch expertise. I am so grateful for their support through such a traumatic and overwhelming event."
