I've had the pleasure of working with Dave for coming up on a decade now. Beyond his legal, business, and accounting expertise, Dave is funny, easy-going, diplomatic, and down-to-earth. He's always easy to work with, even when there are time-sensitive needs. Dave is able to explain complicated legal situations and documents in a way that is understandable to the non-lawyer, and always takes the necessary time needed to make sure I truly understand. He has a very strong sense of ethics and does not get pushed around by others along the way. His fine negotiation skills are imperative when determining what battles to fight and how to win the overall war. I cannot say enough good things about Dave and strongly recommend him for any of your legal needs. If he cannot help you directly, he knows someone who can due to his extensive network.

Mr. Hotes represented our Corporation when he was a member of another firm. We found his representation to be so professional and excellent that when he elected to open his own office we were fortunate to be counted among his clients. He has always responded quickly, provided exemplary legal advice, and assisted us in all our negotiations with successful outcomes. We were particularly fortunate to have his good counsel during recent negotiations with a large medical facility that required some crucial decisions with very short lead time. We would be pleased to recommend him to our associates and have done so.

I am a CPA in Bethesda, MD. David Hotes and I have worked on a number of matters for common clients. David is thorough in his approach without adding unnecessary complications. David brings significant experience to his relationships with clients. Not only is David knowledgeable with regard to law and legal procedures he also has experience working with accounting and financial issues. I am happy to recommend David Hotes to any small business/startup, or more established business without in-house counsel. David has also been a valuable advisor in several tax matters for common clients.
