David represented me in my divorce. First, he overturned the unfair prenuptial agreement that I had been forced to sign, and which severely limited my options. Then, he got me a fair award of support for myself and for my children. Then, he helped me through a custody evaluation that ended up with the best protection for my kids. He has taken me through the hardest year of my life. No words can ever express how grateful I am for all the amazing hard work he has done for me and my children.

David Glass is an amazing family law attorney. He is extremely professional in his manner, courteous in his approach, and primarily interested in the most direct way to get to the core of the legal issues at hand. He is an exceptional trial lawyer in custody / move away cases. In fact, I sincerely believe that if David had not represented me, I would not have received the Court’s permission to relocate from Los Angeles with my daughter.
Mr. Glass met with me many times to listen to my story so he could organize my complicated custody case to emphasize the core legal, emotional and factual issues. There were no false promises, and he was confident, throughout, of what he could do for me.
Mr. Glass was able to look through the depositions and the Custody Evaluator’s report –which did not go in my favor--to locate the facts we needed to construct an attack on the Evaluator’s conclusions, and to prepare a strategy for the trial. He spent time with me and my witnesses (including time on nights and weekends) to learn as much as possible from us, so he could then “boil it down” to the message that needed to be presented to the Court. He essentially helped me tell my story to the Court in the way that the Court would understand and would want to adopt. And, his unique ability, due to his past experience and training as a PhD-level therapist, to dissect the Custody Evaluator’s report, find mistakes, and also show the Court how the court’s psychologist mis-interpreted much of the data proved to be the winning factor.
David helped change my daughter’s life for the better, and in so doing, helped me, my husband, our son, and our extended families, too. There are no words to describe my respect for his gentle courage, wisdom and professional expertise.

Most attorney's lack participatory skills, that is because the law is a foreign language to most they take charge and dictate what you should do.This has two drawbacks.First, and most importantly you will always know the facts of your case better than any attorney and if you are not an intimidate part of the story construction your attorney will inevitably miss things. Second, your cost will be way more than they should be.
Not all people can do this, but for those who can David Glass is one of the few attorneys out there that will check his ego at the door, and put you in the drivers seat, albeit always keeping a careful eye on things.His unique background in psychology and law is especially useful in child custody cases and he is thoroughly honest. I have won and lost with him but I have always felt well represented by him.

David is a top notch attorney. He is brilliant. He helped me settle an international move away with a child custody evaluation not favoring the move. Because of him, my child and I have a better future now and will be around family.
IF I ever need an attorney, I can't think of anyone better than him.
I highly recommend David for any complex child custody case.

As a psychologist I have sought out the assistance of David Glass on various legal questions and found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. His dual professional expertise in the areas of law and psychology make him a great resource for psychologists as well as the general public. He assisted me when a client of mine was going through a lawsuit that required I be deposed. David Glass helped me prepare for my deposition and I felt confident knowing I was following the appropriate guidelines to maintain my client's confidentiality and follow the law at the same time. I would contact David Glass again in the future for any legal questions that arise and I highly recommend him to others.

Negotiating and settling on a child custody agreement can be a very intense and strenuous process. But truthfully, things do not end there. Issues arise, aggravations continue and questions come up. David has been my counsel through out this process. During the initial custody case he was a great advocate while always being fair, reasonable and child centric. Over the past several years he continues to counsel and adivse as we navigate the issues that arise from year to year. I am sure when my child turns 18 - a call to David will be part of that milestone.
I highly recommend David as an attorney that will get you through the initial custody trauma as well as a trusted advisor that you can consult with through the years that will follow.

I was referred to David by my relative at Pillsbury Law for family law matters. All I can say is, WOW. David is a very knowledgeable attorney, but more than that, an unbelievably nice and helpful man. He is very thorough, patient, and just an overall honest good person. I would highly recommend him to anybody who asks my opinion and my experience. I have dealt with several attorneys for all sorts of matters (business, etc.), but David truly is one of a kind and among the top that I have dealt with. Mostly, he's a very fair person and if I ever have anything that needs an attorneys attention in his field of law I would go to him over anybody else without hesitation.

My wife and I, as I suppose many couples do, hoped to mediate our divorce. It was fairly simple. Our financial situation was transparent, we have two boys that we were going to share custody of, the support was a simple calculation, we were going to be equitable in the sharing of our possessions, in short we were NOT going to become that hostile, aggressive, divorcing couple that we'd seen in our circle of friends.
Then she hired a lawyer - I think their middle name was litigious. I was stunned when served with papers demanding full physical custody, an implication that I must be hiding money and a host of other unbelievable demands.
In a panic I began to canvass my friends for referrals and was led to David. During our first meeting and after painting the picture of our situation he calmly suggested that this case was a "poster child" for mediation. He explained why and essentially told me what he believed the end result would be, both in terms of custody and support. His first letter to opposing counsel indicated his belief that mediation was the most prudent, least expensive way to handle our case.
We received a letter back - the demands were outrageous, both in terms of custody and the demand for forensic accounting of our finances.
We were then forced to travel down this litigious route - I could not have had a more stable and knowledgable partner. After nearly six months of battling it out in mean spirited letters and aggressive hearings we reached a temporary ruling pending a "psychological evaluation".
We ended up in exactly the same spot as David had suggested we would during our first meeting.
There's a bit left to go in this process, but I have no doubt that the outcome will be as he predicted. I'm extremely grateful that David is on my team.
