David A. Caraway


David Caraway is a Partner and member of the firm’s Estate Planning, Estate Administration, and Residential Real Estate practice groups. He was a successful, self-employed attorney for 28 years, building a substantial and diverse clientele which he brings with him to CBMS.

Since 1995, David has represented hundreds of clients in estate planning for all individuals, partnered and married couples, and families of every stripe. Such estate planning has ensured that the wishes of the client are honored when circumstances no longer allow the client to express those desires independently.

In addition to hundreds of residential real estate closings under his belt, including houses, condos, coops, and HDFCs, David formerly represented mortgaging banks at scores of closings. He became very familiar with all the requirements and pitfalls that may hinder a transaction. David strongly believes that all open matters should be resolved before the closing so that there are as few complications as possible and that the closing will be a pleasant and uneventful one.

David received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Central College in political science and French. During college, David studied for a trimester in Yucatan, Mexico, and a year at La Sorbonne in Paris, France. While earning his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Iowa College of Law, David studied international and European law in Arcachon, France. He represented HIV/AIDS victims in Social Security appeals and estate probate, administration, and planning matters.
