We hired David to mediate our divorce after a nearly 30 year relationship. Things for us were tense but we wanted to get it done with little stress and fanfare. David was a calm presence who offered up all possibilities and worked hard to draw us both out so that each of us would have our say and that all details would aired and documented.
He prepared our court documents with attention to detail and patience after many edits. David allowed us to work much of this out via email allowing us to keep our expenses within budget.
He has since offered advice and answered questions as they come up as we finalize the process.
David made a very stressful time much easier to get through and left me feeling that I was treated fairly and with respect.

I first met David Burgess in 2010 after separating from my husband of over 30 years. A family friend who had used him when one of her teenagers needed legal help gave me his name. She recommended him unequivocally. When I first met David, I was shaky and frightened to say the least. His calm demeanor and thorough approach put me immediately at ease.
Whist my division of assets wascalculated by my financial planner, David scrutinized it for fairness and completeness. David then translated this information into a precise legal document that would be accepted by the court without difficulty. He was patience with repeated delays in court dates due to my ex’s schedule and remained unflappable throughout. I highly recommend David Burgess.

I hired David to represent my brother, who had gotten himself into some serious trouble. David represented my brother with extreme professionalism, and helped us all, not only with legal advice, but as a great listener and negotiator.
He has tremendous knowledge and patience with the law and with his clients.
I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.
