    One of the most important qualities to look for in a lawyer is thoughtfulness ~ caring about the quality of the work, about the process and time and manner in which any matter is handled ~ and then actually doing the work toward achieving a successful outcome for the client. David gives that thoughtful attention to these matters, to the practice of law, and excels in applying resources to accomplish objectives. He is a credit to the legal community and all we serve.
