  • Eden Rose Brown

    I highly endorse this lawyer's work. I have known David for many years through our membership in a number of national estate planning organizations. David is one of the most intellectually gifted attorneys I know. Not only is he technically brilliant, however, he also combines his intellectual gifts with compassion for his clients, an innate understanding of human nature, and a true passion for his craft. I have oftened asked David for his counsel, which he has shared willingly, and we have collaborated on a number of issues and cases. David is a top tier, national-level estate planner, comfortable with the most sophisticated of clients and most complex estate, tax, charitable and business issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
