Tenant rights
He was very experienced and helpful. He took time out of his day to speak to me and answer all of my questions over the phone . He gave me options to my problem resolution and didnt judge me. He gave me the advice i needed to feel more empowered in my current situation.

David Burkhouse was very helpful
David was my lawyer. In January 2015, he clarified the separation agreement between me and my former employer. He explained the draft proposed by my former employer, and proposed new languages. As a result, I got more favorable terms. Throughout this process, my family felt more comfortable and secure. David was professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. He explained the legal language clearly in plain language to me.
