David Rudolf (born July 2, 1949) is a defense lawyer. He attended Rutgers University and the London School of Economics, and received his law degree from New York University School of Law. Rudolf has served as an Adjunct Professor at both the Duke University School of Law and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law. He has defended clients such as Rae Carruth and Michael Peterson, the latter trial being the subject of the documentary Soupçons (The Staircase).
In 2014, Rudolf served as local counsel in Durham, North Carolina for New York City lawyer Barry Scheck, who was hired by falsely accused Duke lacrosse player Reade Seligmann to represent him in a civil lawsuit filed against the city of Durham and its former district attorney, Mike Nifong. The case was settled with the city giving the falsely accused players no money, but donating $50,000 to the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission.
