Excellent Lawyer!
David is a rare find when looking for a lawyer- he is concise, efficient, friendly and is able to work with you regardless of any knowledge gaps. He is the first lawyer I have met that genuinely cares about the best outcome for his clients who is willing to explain everything you need to know in a way you'd understand. My only issue is that I wish he was specialized in more types of law so that we can hire him as our lawyer for everything!!

Super Lawyer!
I've worked with Dave Ross since 2008 and there never will be another Attorney whose counsel I will seek regarding any business matter. He is honest and has a lot of integrity. Dave's super intelligent and a passionate litigator. When he's defending you, you genuinely feel protected, because it is evident that he genuinely cares.

Meticulous and Effective
David resolved a matter involving unpaid client invoices to my complete satisfaction. He was proactive, super responsive, meticulous, and most importantly successful! I felt he took ownership of my dispute as if it were his own case. I also appreciated that his billing was reasonable and transparent.

Very pleased - Very Responsive - Very Respectful of our $
My husband and I sought David's help in selling our franchise. David was very helpful in reviewing documents as well as having a colleague involved when he felt it was necessary. We had contacted four separate attorneys offices for help in the transaction. Believe it or not, David was only one of two that responded, and the only one that FOLLOWED THROUGH with his word and actions! HIGHLY RECCOMEND!

Excellence in his profession
David Ross was an integral part of the success of my business. He helped make confident decisions with employee situations and negotiations during the transaction of a specialized business. Mr. Ross during some of the most difficult, stressful and emotional up evils of the business environmnet he only showed professionalism and the desire to go beyond the standard of practice. With ever process he showed accessibly, knowledge, understanding, concern,and diligenetence from begin to end. The expertise and perfection shown during our conversations and meetings only reassured my choice in an attorney that was working toward my best interests. During the time of owning my business I could not ask for a better attorney. I alwats felt as though I was the prority. In any event that would require an attorney there would be no question about who I would retain.

A small law firm but high impact
Dave Ross' law firm is small but he can transform it into a firm with large law firm power by his use of strategic alliances with other law firms. He has gone up against some very large law firms and brought home the bacon each time for us. For example, Dave won in Federal court preventing our claims to be forced into arbitration against large national law firm (this is an extremely rare event, but Dave pulled it off). He also engineered a favorable settlement against one of the most profitable privately-owned companies who used a large national law firm. He has shown himself to be fair and honest but aggressive if the need arises. He does not always tell you what you want to hear but, he always tells you what you need to know. If your livelihood is on the line, its in good hands with Dave.
