Biography Submit listing

By any objective measure, Attorney David R. Yannetti has reached the top of his profession. Attorney Yannetti has achieved an acquittal in a first-degree murder case after first obtaining a new trial for his client, who had served sixteen years in state prison after being wrongfully convicted. Later in the year, Attorney Yannetti was selected to compete in the annual "Battle of the Lawyers," sponsored by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Attorney Yannetti's re-creation of his famous closing argument in the Jeffrey Curley murder case earned him top honors, as he took home the trophy for having presented the "Most Compelling Argument." Attorney Yannetti treats all of his cases as if they were murder cases -- because he recognizes that each client considers his or her case to be the most important problem facing him or her.
