  • Nathan D. Alder

    Dustin is an excellent lawyer and I recommend him. Dustin and I worked together at the same law firm for a few years, and then at separate firms where we have had several matters together, mostly working together on the same side, but on occasion our firms have had cases against each other, too. Each time I work with Dustin I come away impressed by his diligence, effort, and work on behalf of people seeking justice. He is a great one to have on your team.
