  • David M. Frees III

    I am privileged to be Ross Unruh's partner. I have worked with Ross for many years and when it comes to Land Use and Zoning issues, I have never been able to stump Ross with a question. He is knowledgeable, efficient, and focused on his municipal clients as well as the developers and private clients he represents.
