At Zappitell Law Firm, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide our clients with the personal attention found at a boutique law firm but the proven experience and vast legal resources typically available at large firms.
At other law firms, it’s often a give and take situation: smaller firms can give much more personalized attention to you and your case, but lack sufficient, widespread resources, including the ability to sue. Larger firms have access to these resources, but have so many cases on their plate; yours is likely to be just another lawsuit. Zappitell Law Firm in Delray Beach, FL doesn’t make this compromise. We specialize in a vast array of practice areas, have the means to fight for them properly, and the time to truly get to know you and your needs. Let’s start talking.
Led by founder board certified civil trial specialist David J. Zappitell, our team of attorneys, of counsel members, paralegals and legal assistants are deeply committed to helping you achieve legal results that make a positive difference in your life, whether you are pursuing compensation after an injury or you are involved in a complex insurance dispute.
Meet the founding partner of Zappitell Law Firm, David J. Zappitell. After attending Michigan State University and then the University of Miami School of Law, Mr. Zappitell decided to stay here in South Florida, becoming Board Certified by the Florida Bar in the area of Civil Trial Litigation in 1999 until today (making him a specialist in his area of practice). Mr. Zappitell is a member of the Florida Bar, U.S. District Court (Southern and Middle Districts of Florida) and has been a repeat guest lecturer at the National Business Institute Seminars regarding the technical issues surrounding Uninsured Motorist Insurance coverages. Mr. Zappitell is also often found sharing his legal expertise with the community, and has been a guest lecturer at round table discussions regarding the elderly with the Palm Beach Guardianship Association, as well as guest speaker on I Heart Radio’s Legal News and Review talk show. A fixture in Boca Magazine and Delray Magazine, Mr. Zappitell is also listed in Who’s Who in Executive and Professionals. Mr. Zappitell also sits on several boards throughout the community and is especially active in Roots and Wings, a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding children at public schools.

Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area, Mr. Arzabe attended the University of Maryland, where he was a dean’s list student, member of The University of Maryland Mock Trial Team, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. After one too many cold northern winters, Mr. Arzabe moved to Fort Lauderdale to attend the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern University. Mr. Arzabe excelled academically at the Shepard Broad College of Law as a dean’s list student and a member of several honor societies, including the Nova Trial Association and the Moot Court Society.
During law school Mr. Arzabe clerked at two personal injury law firms learning injury and tort law from the early pre-suit stages throughout the entire litigation process. Upon graduating law school, Mr. Arzabe accepted an attorney position with a prominent civil defense firm wherein he gained extensive litigation experience defending insurance companies and their insureds in various injury and wrongful death actions.
After three years of defending the insurance companies, Mr. Arzabe joined Zappitell Law Firm, bringing the tools he had learned working for the opposition with him. Mr. Arzabe now dedicates his entire legal practice to representing individuals and their families in personal injury and wrongful death cases. He values the trust his clients place in him and strives to achieve the optimal result in every case.
