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 was recommended to this firm to handle the workers comp part of a hit and run that happened while I was on the clock. I worked closely with Stephanie Tucker and could not be happier with how the handled the situation. She made sure I got the care and rehabilitation and needed and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. She was compassionate and friendly, and quite honestly change my perspective on lawyers ( I used to have quite a negative one ). She helped me get a settlement for lasting injuries and has even been there to help me after the case was closed. If anyone needs to be represented in a workers comp issue I highly recommend The Babcock Law Firm and Stephanie Tucker. Thank you for everything you did for me, you and your team where absolutely amazing"
"I am very happy with how my case went. I went through the facts of the case once with Stephanie, signed a form here and there, and was able to focus on getting healthy again and moving forward with my life. I was worried there would be a lot of work and stress involved in this case for me personally. I was very grateful to everyone at Babcock because they knew that I would prefer they handle the bulk of everything and just contact me when it was really necessary. I had already been through a lot of stress with my employer and didn't want to relive that stress again in this case. They saved me a lot of headaches by being excellent advocates for me. In the end we were victorious based on two factors, we were on the right side of truth, and Babcock Law were excellent representatives for me."
"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"
