Unemployment compensation case
Dave is a down to earth easy to talk to attorney. He took the time to hear all my concerns regarding an unemployment dispute and was very thorough and persistent with everything. Going above and beyond to have several discussions prior to the hearing. He made me feel heard, understood, and made it known that my discrepancies were valid and of importance.
