    I have known David for over 10 years and am impressed by the high level of competence, integrity and caring that he brings to his work. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family who need estate planning services in his area.

    I endorse this lawyer. Dave has a fantastic combination of qualities that you want in an Estate Planning and Elder Law attorney. He is very smart and a very good lawyer. But he also brings the ability to see the bigger human aspect in the lives and needs of his clients, and does so well at combining the head and the heart - so necessary in those practice areas. An added plus is that Dave surrounds himself with good people, so working with his support team is a pleasure as well. Once you work with Dave, you know - he's one of the good guys!
