Prompt, professional and concise
He arrived at the time I expected and found me. The traffic citation that forced me to appear was dismissed. He did a great job of clearly explaining what was happening throughout the entire process. My first appearance in court was simpler and less stressful than I expected thanks to his expertise.

10 STARS In My Book!
After calling other bk lawyers for their services which were marginal and fees over-inflated, I took to Google and found David Cahn. I personally spoke with him, he was reasonable, and he outlined a plan for me to overcome a scheduled lawsuit by a creditor. I was skeptical at first--but, was soon very assured with his professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile. The plan succeeded! Even down to the wire David exceedingly did what he said he would do, as I too committed to my part, I emerged from the depths of drowning to a new life-line and peace-of- mind. I highly recommend David Cahn, he is an awesome lawyer, who is a devoted professional, capable, willing, and on-top-of-his-craft to assist anyone who is in need of his services. He is 10 STARS in my book if only these recommendations offered it!

Everything you're looking for in a lawyer
After working with Mr. Cahn for 5+ years, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal advice. He is deeply knowledgeable of the law, compassionate, and personable.

Couldn't recommend him more highly
Not your typical Lawyer, Mr. Cahn was happy to help me, and put his answers to my questions into language I could understand. He was able to help me with information and guidance that narrowed things down into a range I could manage. His service to me was prompt and excellent. My friends recommended him, and I could not be happier to do the same to anyone else.

He has been amazing!
Mr. Cahn is friendly, helpful, affordable and has made me feel comfortable through the entire process. I feel blessed my friend referred me to him.

Great attorney!
After receiving a payable traffic violation, I was unsure whether or not to fight the ticket in court or just pay the fine. Mr. Cahn advised me that paying the ticket, admitting guilt, and accruing points on my driving record could result in my car insurance going up, and advised that I take the chance to go to court and fight the ticket. His advice helped save me hundreds of dollars, as well as helping to maintain my clean driving record. I am very grateful for Mr. Cahn's straightforward and individualized advice, and will certainly consult him first for any future legal problems I may encounter.
