President & Managing Attorney
Tucson Attorney David Gurney founded the Southwestern Law Center in response to the lack of legal services available to the poor and middle class in Arizona. He is dedicated to the ideals of justice and fairness and believes that people’s income should not determine their access to justice.
Prior to joining the SWLC, David was a Fellow at the University of Arizona’s Wrongful Conviction Clinic where he worked on post-conviction relief petitions requiring intensive investigation. Previously, he worked with the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Arizona Justice Project, the Arizona Capital Representation Project, and the Innocence Project of Minnesota.
