David Demurjian

Mr. Demurjian became affiliated with Jones & Mayer in 2015. Since the 1980's, as a criminal prosecutor, Mr. Demurjian has witnessed first-hand the dangers of being a police officer in New York City, Boston and in Southern California. Realizing that an aggressive defense was needed for law enforcement officials, Mr. Demurjian formed an independent law firm that handles criminal, civil and administrative litigation matters for law enforcement and military personnel with a special focus on "use of force" scenarios. He also handles employment matters before administrative hearing boards and state court.

From 2005-2008 Mr. Demurjian served as a Deputy District Attorney for Orange County where he investigated and prosecuted cases involving white collar crimes (state and federal), securities fraud, investment scams, money laundering, embezzlement and identity theft, real estate fraud, computer crimes, and political corruption.

Mr. Demurjian is a graduate of New York University (1984) with a double major in economics and in classics. He received his Juris Doctor at Fordham University School of Law (1987). He is a member of the California, New York and Massachusetts State Bars and also the 1st, 2nd, and 9th Federal Circuits. Mr. Demurjian is also a certified force instructor for a large law enforcement agency and serves as a sworn officer with that agency. His assignments have been patrol, gang enforcement and academy staff for the last fifteen years. These assignments have provided him with a unique insight into the split second decisions made in the life and death encounters of law enforcement. Mr. Demurjian is also a captain assigned to the Judge Advocate General's Office.
