    When forced to face a difficult challenge, having the right attorney by one's side is critical, especially when what's at stake is of utmost importance. We do have a choice to "shop around" or interview at least 2 or 3 distinct professionals so we can make an informed decision for ourselves, and in this process for me, Mr. David Mettler stood out right away. The big difference: he took the time to listen, was honest and proficient, able to correctly assess what I was truly up against and enlist my options. He then probed my opponent's strengths, investigated the issue thoroughly, and planned the best course of action from the outset.
    The result: A speedy conclusion with a settlement having a cumulative value in the 6 (almost 7) figures, totally exceeding my expectations.

    It was clear who to hire for subsequent cases I needed expert guidance for, and have since referred close friends and business clients to Mr. Mettler. I've heard favorable outcome for their specific cases as well.
    With his integrity and track record of success, I can confidently say: David Mettler truly sets the bar.

    I would strongly suggest that anyone going thru a divorce to seek counsel ANYWHERE else than hiring David Mettler as your attorney. After over a year and close to ten thousand dollars later, no progress has been made. He is consistently at least 45 minutes late to every appointment as well as unable to ever call you at all when you've made a phone conference. He will and continued to go around your wishes to extend a case just to bill you more and rack up your legal fees. He is extremely arrogant for someone who clearly knows minimal in divorce cases. Do yourself a service and hire any other attorney other than David Mettler.

    David William Mettler’s response: “Clients have responsibilities to heed the sound advice of the attorney they entrust their case to. When a client continually fails to do so the desired outcome of the case is jeopardized. Initial goals as set by the client were met here. Unfortunately the client's continued poor judgment and reliance on his girlfriend's "advice" made the case unmanageable by the attorney and his staff causing the attorney to withdraw from the case and decline the client's $5,000 second retainer offer. Based on the tone of the post (and many of its inaccuracies) it appears the client is bitter the legal representation ended, but on rare occasion an attorney may need to withdraw from a case (and refuse offered monies) if the attorney cannot continue to best serve the interests of the client.”
