Highly recommend
I’ve been a lawyer in Greensboro, representing Social Security claimants, for over 30 years, have had several cases where my work with clients overlapped Cheryl David’s work. She is extremely competent and great to work with from my viewpoint and that of her clients I’ve heard from.

I contacted Justin Plumer in 2014. He helped with an estate for my stepmother which was complicated. Justin and the team at Cheryl David and Associates got all the research I needed without me having to do anything. At the time I was living 200 + miles away and working full time. This was a huge help for me. I recently needed some receipts from their office and they dug through old files to once again save me time and effort. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs legal advise and estate planning and someone who truly cares. Kristina Hobgood Smith

quick response, very personable during a tough time
I had to find an attorney quickly, since my brother passed without a will. Cheryl was quick to respond to me. Although, ultimately she referred me to someone else in her practice, that specializes in probate, Cheryl was caring and understanding and explained to me the process. I highly recommend her firm.

Cheryl David couldn't be more professional!
Cheryl David provided me and my family the utmost professionalism and personal care as if we were her own family. The information she provided is literally life-saving when it comes to your family's future. We hired her and we appreciate the professional relationship that has begun.

Good advice from our trust attorney
I called Cheryl David, the attorney who drew up our trust quite a while ago and had all of my questions answered on the phone. The information and advice was very clear and very helpful in addressing my current and future financial and legal needs.

Such a genuine person,....
We had some clarification issues with my Trust set up by Cheryl sometime ago because my partner was apprehensive about what would happen if I were to die. (We're both in our 70's and 80's and I am the younger). Cheryl was so sweet and patient with us, leading us back through the process and completely satisfying and soothing my partner,...I was so grateful,... I told her that there was no problem or changes that had to be made because she, "had done such a great job to begin with,..."

A Positive Experience
My husband and I attended a seminar hosted by Cheryl David to get information and help with the papers necessary as a couple approaching the sunset of their lives. We found the presentation extremely helpful as Cheryl and members of her staff covered many topics and we decided to arrange for a private consultation with her. In this meeting she answered all our questions in language we could understand about wills, power of attorney, medical power of attorney, trusts, long term care, Hippa laws, life insurance etc. She covered every aspect she thought pertained to our situation including items we hadn't realized mattered. She was very friendly, easy to talk to and she gave us the feeling she genuinely cared about our situation. I would recommend Cheryl David and this firm to anyone needing advice on elder law and help with legal documents. A very positive experience.

Cheryl David
Cheryl helped my family through a very tedious time with her kind and professional guidance. I can only say positive (and not enough) about Cheryl. She listened to our needs and helped us make sound decisions to protect our loved ones. What had been a tough situation initially resolved and ended well for all parties. Her approach was to consider relationships and the humanity of everyone involved first. She made herself available and never had to be reminded of our case's circumstances, even if it had been a while between conversations. She was always clear and comforting.

The Best of the Best
If anyone is interested in protecting your financial resources, Cheryl David provides the best method to do so. This has really helped us in planning our future and the future of our family. She and her organization deserve a "job well done" and is clearly cost effective.

Competency and compassion
After my husband passed away unexpectedly this past spring, I knew I needed to create a will and a trust to protect my family. After a little internet research, I chose Cheryl David based on reviews and her picture, in which she appears to be approachable and caring. Compassionate, caring and competent is exactly what Ms. David is. Her staff, as well, were warm and thorough and all exhibited sensitivity during what has been an extremely difficult time in my life. I appreciate what they did on my behalf and the time they took to explain things. Additionally, I felt her prices were fair. I am grateful knowing that me and my children are now legally protected should anything happen to me (which I don't plan on for at least another 50 years or so).

Long over due
Wow, it's over! It is huge process if your files are not kept up-to-date. My husband and I put off the organization of all our financial records. We had all the papers, just not organized. Cheryl and staff walk you through the process. Once you complete the work book, you know where everything is and it's all together. It's amazing how good I feel knowing my children will not my have a burden to hassle with after we both die. My children have already thanked us for having this living trust done. My thanks goes to Cheryl David and her great staff.

Appreciative
Cheryl and her staff could not have been more accommodating. I could not believe how much was involved in setting up a trust. As seemingly complicated as my trust was, it was handled seamlessly and in a very short time. Every member of her staff was wonderful to work with. I never felt that any question I had was unimportant I am very appreciative of their work on my behalf.

Cheryl David
Have known Cheryl for many years and she has been a trusted counselor as well as a truly genuine person for the entire time. Her guidance has always been spot on, and she stayed with us personally as many documents were prepared, reviewed and executed. On a personal side Cheryl listens and understands as well as offers proactive solutions to situations presented to her. Highly recommend her to anyone needing care in this area.
