Helping Individuals and Our Community

Dave Fox, Founder of Fox Law APC, is a former federal prosecutor and local personal injury trial lawyer that has dedicated his law firm to helping individuals going through extraordinary circumstances.

One evening, March 2014, a 27-year-old Ph.D. student at Scripps Institute of Oceanography lost her life after being fatally struck by a speeding drunk driver at the corner of Camino Del Mar and Coast Boulevard. The family hired Dave Fox and his firm brought a civil case against the driver and his employer.

After successfully resolving the case, Fox went a step further by working with Del Mar City Council to enact safety changes to that same crosswalk. “We fight to ensure our clients are reimbursed for everything they have gone through, and we also strive to make our roads safer when we can.”

Fox Law is heavily involved with several local foundations, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). The firm was recently the presenting sponsor for MADD’s 5K fundraising walks held in Point Loma and Carlsbad. “Many of our clients have come to us after they were seriously injured by a drunk driver, or lost a family member. We have seen the magnitude of this public safety issue first hand, and are proud to partner with MADD to help put a stop to it.”

Fox is also closely associated with the Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito. His firm sponsors an annual sunset happy hour at the Del Mar Plaza and invites local attorneys and businesses to participate in a charity raffle for the B&G Club. The firm also sponsors the B&G Club’s Horseshoe & Cornhole tournament at Del Mar’s Dog Beach, and the Del Mar Powerhouse Paddle & Swim contests. The B&G Club recently awarded his firm a certification of appreciation for his efforts.

“Our lawyers represent individuals all throughout California; however, Del Mar has been home for over 10 years, and so helping neighbors and those throughout North County is extra special for me.”

Fox was recognized by his San Diego peers as a Super Lawyer, which extends to just 5 percent of San Diego lawyers, an “Outstanding Trial Lawyer,” and Distinguished Alumni of the University of San Diego School of Law where he has taught trial skills to law students.

In this past year, Fox Law has recovered over $10,000,000 for its clients. “We are a bit different than other firms in this field in that we take a select amount of cases so that we can truly connect with our clients, completely understand the magnitude of their injury or loss, and then fully convey their story to the defense attorneys, judge, and jury. This specialized approach consistently increases the value of our clients’ cases. We take great pride in our work and try our best to make a difference in our clients’ lives and our community.”
