Our Speaker and Moderator

David B. Falk
David B. Falk is an American sports agent who primarily works with basketball players in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He started his legal career interning in Sidley Austin’s Washington, DC office while in law school before finding an opportunity to help Donald Dell represent tennis players at a boutique law firm which eventually became ProServ. Falk helped expand ProServ’s sports representation practice to include the NBA and NFL stars—most notably representing Michael Jordan when he turned professional in 1984. Falk continued to represent Jordan when starting his own agency, FAME, in 1992. In addition to Jordan, Falk has represented more than 100 other NBA players and is generally considered to be the most influential player agent the NBA has seen. Falk actively marketed his players, fielding shoe deals and even producing the movie Space Jam. Falk also is credited with dreaming up one of the most iconic marketing campaigns of the 20th century—the concept of “Air Jordan.”

Falk graduated with an economics degree from Syracuse University in 1968 and a law degree from George Washington University in 1972. He lives in Bethesda with his wife Rhonda, and has two grown daughters, Daina and Jocelyn.

The Network’s Lawyers Division

The Lawyers Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Network is committed to bringing together Jewish legal professionals in the DMV for unique networking, programmatic, and learning opportunities. The Lawyers Division convenes lawyers, judges, political leaders, and business professionals. Participants meet new people in these areas and exchange perspectives on the law and the business of law. They also learn about the impact that lawyers and lawyering skills have and can have in our community, including exposure to opportunities to serve those in need through Jewish community-organized legal service non-profit groups such as Tzedek DC.

Through strategic programming we will ensure a multi-generational connection within this group, linking senior professionals with entry to mid-level professionals, while creating a pipeline of community leadership amongst the latter population. Ultimately, this group will gain a further understanding of the important role that Federation plays in the community and the power of their philanthropic dollars in creating and maintaining a vibrant Jewish Washington.
