David F. Edwards is an associate attorney on the RTR Law PIP team, handling all aspects of Personal Injury Protection auto insurance coverage, filing lawsuits against insurance companies to collect medical bills on behalf of providers who were either not paid or underpaid the amount billed.

Prior to joining RTR Law, Mr. Edwards litigated PIP cases for both plaintiffs (medical entities) and defendants (insurance companies), as well as practicing as an associate in commercial litigation-based firms, both defending and prosecuting numerous businesses.

Following the BP Oil Spill in 2010, Mr. Edwards established BlackWave Recovery, a company that successfully advocated for and recovered over a million dollars in payouts for individuals and businesses afflicted by the spill.

With his extensive experience on both sides of the litigation spectrum and broad exposure to commercial litigation, Mr. Edwards has developed a competitive perspective litigating against insurance companies, giving RTR Law’s PIP Team an advantage in their pursuit of justice for their clients.

While attending FSU’s College of Law, Mr. Edwards concurrently completed his Master of Business Administration degree in FSU’s College of Business, being only one of three in his law school class of 286 students to do so. While completing his degrees, Mr. Edwards received a satellite appointment in the Economic Crimes Unit in the Office of the Florida Attorney General, working the unit until graduation.
