Each year, Covington Latin School recognizes alumni with awards that reflect the school’s motto, “Bonitatem et disciplinam et scientiam doce me” (“Teach me goodness, discipline, and knowledge.”) The School has announced that DBL Law partner David Kramer has been selected as recipient of the Disciplinam Award for 2020. The Disciplinam Award is given to a graduate of Latin School who demonstrates excellence in his/her profession and in service to Covington Latin School.
David graduated from Covington Latin in 1976.

His volunteer activities for the School include many years of planning and fundraising for the Academic Advancement Fund, organizing and running the Alumni Golf Outing, and serving on an advisory committee for management of the School’s endowment.
Professionally, David has been with DBL Law since 1986, and has been a partner since 1994. He chairs the firm’s Civil Litigation Practice Group. He has been named a Fellow of both the American College of Trial Lawyers and Litigation Counsel of America, and has been recognized as one of the Top 50 Lawyers in Kentucky by Super Lawyers.
