  • Cari Brett Rincker

    I have gotten to know David Fish through the NYC lawyer community and we recently worked as co-counsel together on a week long trial. David is a fantastic litigator and great courtroom presence. He is smart, communicative, and friendly to work with. He is a great lawyer and I recommend him without hesitation.
