Welcome Our New Partner

Partner David A. Caraway, Esq.

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 Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld LLP. David also brings his Associate, Samuel W. Buchbauer, Esq., to the firm, assuring the utmost continuity and service for all his clients.

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 mortgage 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 Yucatán, 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, and represented individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Social Security appeals and estate probate, administration, and planning matters.

David works in our New York City office, but is happy to meet with clients in the Syosset office upon request. To connect with David, please contact him at or 212.840.6711.
