Top notch attorney!
Mr. Snyder handled our case thoroughly, professionally, and expediously with our best interest in mind. Kept us informed every step of the way during our case from the time he took over until the end. If in the future we or anyone we know have the need for an attorney, we would definitely, without a doubt recommend his services.

Received my settlement rather quickly and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer! Thank You David

Happy with our six figure settlement!
Mr. Snyder successfully negotiated a settlement with the insurance company for a local wheelchair transport company accident involving my Mother. It would be my pleasure to recommend him to potential clients. He is honest, hard working, and dependable. Beyond that, he is also a very caring individual.

Workers Compensation Case
David and his team always made themselves available to me when I had any questions about my case or its progress. David was successful in obtaining a 'partial loss of use' settlement, beyond my expectation and quickly. I would recommend the Snyder Law firm - one hundred percent!

Workers Comp Injury
When things got dicey with the insurance company David was able to step in and get the process back on track. He got a fair settlement that I was happy with. David was always available to me to answer all my questions. I would recommend David to anyone. Thank you for your help David.

Honest and dependable
David and his team were great to deal with, always returned our calls and emails.(even on weekends) David has the knowledge and skills to go up against the largest insurance carriers. He represented me with the highest regard for my well being. I tried to deal with the insurance carriers by myself and quickly realized I need the help of a great attorney. So I searched on the web and called David on a Saturday and he called me back within an hour. That's when I realized how hard of a worker he was and I knew how hard he would work for me. He negotiated with the carrier and got almost double, what they had originally offered.

Recommendation
I highly recommend Mr. David Snyder to anyone having trouble with the law. He provided me with necessary information and was able to help me not only in my defense, but to get ahead of schedule so that I only had to go to court once to settle the issue. Mr. Snyder has been the greatest lawyer I have ever had to represent me, and he answered all my questions, returned all my phone calls, and provided me with the best possible service. He maintained a positive outlook on the matter, and thanks to his expertise on the law, I am grateful. I highly doubt that other lawyers in the area could have been able to provide me with as much help and convenience that Mr. Snyder provided. He was straightforward with me, but truly helped me get out of a bind.

Review David B. Snyder
David Snyder, was an excellent attorney for us, in a time of crisis, he always was availabe to answer any questions we had, he had an excellent response time to our calls. He came to court and supported my daughter, he even appeared in court, when he wasn't required to be there. I have had to call on David's expertise a few times since the court incident we attained him for regarding my daughter. He has been a great help in referring me to some other great advice in personal struggles, that we have been going through, and I would highly recommend anyone needing an honest and sincere down to earth attorney to contact David Snyder, he won't steer you in the wrong direction.
