I have known Dave for over 20 years and have had the pleasure to collaborate with him on many cases. Additionally we have worked together for the last 3 years on the administration of a very large estate. He is literally the "Go-To" attorney on any estate planning or estate administration matters. He has my highest and unqualified endorsement.
