Go getter...
David is young, energetic and although newer to his practice eager to help and resolve your situation or lead you in the right direction. Best part he answers the phone or returns your call very quickly not like many I have used in the pass. New firm is usually more hungry for success and steps up to make sure clients get best customer service to become repeat clients. That was my experience with David.
