David Van Os Shareholder David Van Os & Associates, San Antonio David Van Os says he’s always had a philosophical interest in pursuing justice for working people. As a lawyer primarily representing unions and their collective members, he feels like he’s done just that for the past 25 years. “I’ve had a lot of extremely rewarding experiences fighting off union-busting campaigns, helping workers to organize unions and helping workers keep their jobs,” the lawyer says. From day one of his legal career, he’s been immersed in union representation. After graduating in 1976 from the UT Law School, Van Os worked as an in-house attorney for labor unions and at an Austin firm. In early 1984, he co-founded a firm that is a predecessor to his current firm. Van Os switched locations in 1999 when he moved his office to San Antonio, where his wife’s family lives. “I’ve had a lot of rewarding experiences helping workers obtain and maintain their collective rights to union representation,” he says. Van Os, 50, argues dozens of cases a year, often before the National Labor Relations Board and labor arbitrators. Although he lives in South Texas, his clientele is statewide and much of his work is still in Austin. “As far as labor law work is concerned, that was just a change of address,” he says of the move to San Antonio. “I have clients that I have been representing for over 20 years. There’s a lot of continuity.”
