    II endorse this lawyer's work. Dave possesses that rare combination of top notch technical skill, deep emotional intelligence and down to earth common sense. For more than a decade I have know Dave to be a highly ethical, moral person who cares deeply about his clients. Among his peers Dave is recognized as the expert's expert, yet he carries himself with such an easy going and unassuming manner that he is easy to approach and fun to engage. I have referred Dave to other colleagues and I would not hesitate to refer a client or family member.
