Dave Trott is the U.S. Representative for Michigan’s Eleventh Congressional District.
Dave’s story is like that of many in Michigan—he worked hard, earned his education, and was able to live the American Dream. A lifelong resident of Oakland County, Dave is a leader in innovation, problem solving, and job creation. Since joining his parents in their family law firm in 1985, Dave has created and saved 1,800 jobs in Southeast Michigan.
Dave’s leadership in the business community in Michigan makes him uniquely prepared to help craft and provide input to job-creating measures in Congress. Dave is not a career Washington politician; rather he’s a Michigan innovator with a proven record of improving the lives of the citizens of Southeast Michigan.
Throughout his career, Dave has been committed to giving back to his community in Southeast Michigan. Dave spent a semester of teaching American government, and has also served on the University of Michigan Advisory Board, Detroit Country Day School Board of Trustees, The Community House Board, Karmanos Cancer Center Board, Michigan State Building Authority Board of Trustees, and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce Board of Trustees.
In Congress, Dave is focused on fighting for more jobs and better opportunities for the citizens of the Eleventh Congressional District. In the 115th Congress, Dave serves on the House Committee on Financial Services.
Dave received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctor from Duke University. He, his wife Kappy of 25 years, and their three children live in Birmingham, Michigan.
