Very simply, the best and smartest lawyer I have ever known
David Smallman has been an invaluable help to me for many years, both with personal and artistic legal issues. No lawyer I have ever known is more responsive, more thoughtful, considered, generous with his time, or better able to negotiate the best possible outcome. I trust him implicitly, and have recommended him many times, to friends and family. All agree: Smallman is at the top of his profession.
