  • Brandon C. Fernald

    I have known David Burgess for almost 20 years now and have worked with him on several matters. He is a consummate professional, but a bull dog when he needs to be. He knows the law, is extremely intelligent, and as committed to winning as it gets. I would not hesitate to hire him on any criminal matter.
