Annual Dinner Honoring   

David & Elizabeth Schoen

About David Schoen
David Schoen is a  lawyer with practices based in New York and Alabama, but he takes on cases from all around the world.

Following graduation cum laude from Boston College Law School in 1984,   David pursued his long-held interest in civil rights litigation in the Deep South by serving as a law clerk  to a distinguished  federal judge in  Alabama. After his clerkship, David opened the Law Office of David I. Schoen in Montgomery, Alabama.

In bestowing its prestigious National Pro Bono Publico award on David in 1995, the American Bar Association reported that various federal  judges  credited David with accomplishing more through his litigation than any lawyer of this era to positively change the face of public institutions in the South. Those institutions include public schools, foster care, prisons, jails, indigent defense systems, voting rights, fair housing, and more.

From the outset of opening his law practice, David combined criminal defense work with civil rights work and he developed a civil practice designed primarily to seek remedies for some of the systemic problems in the criminal justice system and other institutional services, generally through class actions. The civil litigation branch of the practice continues to include civil rights litigation, ranging from employment discrimination, to police brutality, to prisoners’ rights, religious rights, free speech rights, and more, as well as complex commercial litigation, including allegations of trademark infringement and counterfeiting, as well as contract disputes and fraud, security clearance and government contract issues, and civil forfeiture.

In addition to his law practice and dedication to fly fishing, David has taught as an adjunct professor of law   and regularly serves as a moot court judge at Columbia University Law School and for the American Bar Association. He holds a Master of Laws degree with a concentration in Criminal Law/Procedure and Legal Education from Columbia University Law School.

David has served as a consultant to, mediator for and as an Officer or Director on the Boards of a variety of public interest and civic organizations, including the Alabama Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Alabama Civil Liberties Union,  the Alabama Prison Project,  AMCHA, Congregation Beth Jacob of Atlanta, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (Montgomery, AL Chapter), the Torah Day School of Atlanta,  the Zionist Organization of America (National Board of Directors), and others.

As an athlete who attended George Washington University on a full tennis scholarship and led his team to an NCAA Division I Atlantic 10 Conference title, David enjoys organizing , teaching and coaching a variety of sports in his spare time. With every changing season  he dedicates himself to his children and their friends whether at their schools, in camps, or through the Y or JCC leagues.

Growing up in the frozen tundra of the Great White North, Elizabeth always dreamed of the day that she would marry a civil rights lawyer who would whisk her away, extremely south of the border. Learning a new language and culture has taken a great deal of effort, but the rewards experienced living in such a warm and friendly  Jewish community have proven to be innumerable. Retiring from her work in telecommunications  and consumer analysis  in order to raise her fantastic children,   Elizabeth currently spends much of her time in mediation and scheduling and crisis management.  Always happy to help a worthy organization, Elizabeth has served on the boards and on committees of various local institutions and has been involved in managing many fundraising campaigns at local schools and synagogues.  She currently sits on the board of Yeshiva Atlanta.

Arthur, their eldest child, is a proud graduate of Yeshiva Ohr Yisrael and is currently learning in Yeshivat Har Etzion in Israel.  Simon is a high school freshman  who is adjusting quite happily to the schedule at YOY and is looking forward to the next baseball season.  Maayan, Abraham and Jemima are busy with their classes and activities at TDSA.  The Schoens  love to read, sing, act, talk, bobsled, play piano, talk, and be active in sports. They love living with their family and friends around them and enjoy being actively engaged in their schools and community.
