David Windecher is a defense attorney in Atlanta, GA. He represents clients facing major felony and misdemeanor charges. David will share his life story which he wrote in the book “The American Dream.” – the story in which he portrays the difficulty of obtaining the American dream as an impoverished minority.
David grew up in the streets of Miami, and was first arrested at age 11 for shoplifting, stealing out of desperation to feed his family. For the next seven years, David was involved in a criminal lifestyle racked with violence, drugs, and money. He later joined a gang and was arrested over 13 times. Despite a life of crime, deep inside, David dreamed of becoming an attorney and fighting for justice for all. David’s faith in God and Love for his family were the catalyst for turning his life around.
David founded RED (Rehabilitation Enables Dreams, Inc.) which is a domestic non-profit organization to help administer rehabilitation for pre and post adjudication first time nonviolent offenders.
