  • Spencer Marc Aronfeld

    I settled a personal injury case involving a minor child. Florida law required that the settlement be approved by a judge and a guardianship established holding the funds for the child until he turns 18. David did a wonderful job. Traveled to Miami on a number of occasions and performed magnificently at the hearing. I recommend him without hesitation for any guardianship, probate or estate matter.
