Attorney Endorsements

9 total 

  • Steven Wade Edmiston

    It's so easy - and pleasing - to endorse David. I've known him for a decade, and while our practices are divergent, I've come to rely completely on his advice for all family law matters, and his compassion and skills when it comes to referring a client. I know that with David, clients will be treated with respect and dignity, communication will be exemplary, and results will be positive!

  • Sue Stepp Tamblyn

    I endorse this lawyer. David has become one one of the few attorneys I call to discuss ethical concerns and to tease out legal issues. I value his insight.
