  • Barry P. Goldberg

    Over the last several years I have become familiar with David's work and expertise in employment law. He is a leader in his field and understands the practical reality of modern litigation as it balances in favor of his clients. He is a tenacious advocate and always places his clients first. These features, combined with his scholarship in employment law, makes him an obvious choice for any employment matter. I have already referred him several matters and I would not hesitate to refer him my most valued clients as well as my own family. I give him my highest recommendation!
