David Windecher is a criminal defense attorney licensed to practice in Georgia and Florida. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from American Intercontinental University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2005 and received his Juris Doctorate degree from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta, Georgia in 2012. David is also on the Board of Advisors for the GA Justice Project.

Prior to being sworn into the Georgia and Florida Bar, Windecher was an impoverished minority who was arrested 13 times and spent over 7 months incarcerated as a juvenile. He dropped out of high school and joined a criminal street gang in an attempt to overcome a poverty stricken life. Windecher began his path to rehabilitation when he received his GED in March of 1998 and took his first academic step toward becoming a dual-licensed practitioner. He understands the empowering effects of obtaining an education in order to facilitate upward social mobility.

Windecher chronicled his life’s journey of transitioning from defendant to defense attorney in an inspirational autobiography — The AmerIcan Dream | HisStory In The Making. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy is donated to RED.
