David de Armas became the third name partner of the firm of Cramer, Price and de Armas in 2001. As a member of The Florida Bar since 1985, he works with business and individual clients throughout the state as a litigator and negotiator. He also represents commercial entities as their corporate general counsel and in their commercial litigation.

Coming from a prominent litigation firm, David focuses his considerable trial and problem-solving skills in the areas of insurance bad faith, insurance coverage, commercial disputes and personal injury. His sense of personal principle leads him to be a strong advocate for churches and other not-for-profit corporations, helping them successfully fulfill their diverse missions. While David believes in aggressively representing his clients, he understands this often means using creativity and experience to minimize litigation expenses.

David is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator in Circuit Civil matters. He is fluent in Spanish, and serves the Spanish-speaking community extensively, both as attorney and as a mediator.

David is married to the former Dr. Dana Carter and they have four children. David also volunteers as a Guardian ad Litem to aid those children who find themselves in the legal system through no fault of their own. In his free time, David enjoys bicycling and barefoot water skiing.
