Attorney Ankeles was admitted to the Bar in 1970 and immediately began to practice in the field of real estate.  His clients are many and quite varied in that he represents those wishing to acquire a single family home as well as purchasers and developers of large retail, industrial and commercial parcels.  His practice includes zoning and permitting matters, commercial leasing, and development of commercial, residential and industrial projects.  


David has always found time to work with Peabody’s large immigrant community and continues to do so.  He is a long time Trustee and Director of New England Homes for the Deaf.   He is also a Director of North Shore Bank and current chairman of its Security Committee.
