Augustus Corbett loves the Bible story of David and Goliath because in many of his cases like David, he courageously and tenaciously fights Goliath, which are the powerful insurance companies and district attorneys offices. Also like David, his courage, tenacity and faith usually enable him to defeat Goliath, which makes him a much sought after attorney throughout DFW.
