David R. Cantu

David was born and raised in McAllen, Texas. Upon graduating and becoming a licensed attorney with the State Bar of Texas, David fulfilled his dream of working with his father, Arturo R. Cantu, an attorney with a reputation of the highest quality both inside and outside of court.

Since obtaining his bar license, David primarily focused and found a passion in representing those with the greatest need. He represented juveniles and adults in criminal cases, ranging from misdemeanors and felonies against the State of Texas to those charged in federal crimes against the United States of America.

After four years in private practice, David found interest in learning more about his community from a different view and a different area of law; he served his community as an assistant district attorney for the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office in the Civil Litigation Division, in which he focused on government law, to include, government contracts, government procurement, and employment law.

David has since transitioned back into private practice, opening his own firm. David enjoys helping people and looks forward to speaking with you.
