David is awesome! I was charged with a traffic violation and he got it dismissed! He was fast, efficient and affordable.

David is by far the best attorney I've ever had he is very smart and has so many clients and still managed to keep me and my mother beyond informed. He devotes his entire life to his job more than most attorneys do. He also managed to solve my case of 9 felonies for selling heroin to an undercover detective to just 22 days in county jail and basic probation with just 2 convictions. I would recommend David as your next lawyer he is the best at what he does and to this day I will still call him for legal advice and he is always right! Thank you David!

David not only represented us for traffic violation, he also kept our insurance from going up and handled due to an error by the clerk of court David took the time to drop what he was doing and run up to handle issues out of his control on our behalf. Most attorneys do the one job and then are done with you, not David! He went far beyond measures every time I called in order to get things done at a fraction of the cost mind you! He then followed up after each issue to be sure it was handle! I can't even say enough to thank him!
Brandon Fernald, Litigation Attorney
I have known David Burgess for almost 20 years now and have worked with him on several matters. He is a consummate professional, but a bull dog when he needs to be. He knows the law, is extremely intelligent, and as committed to winning as it gets. I would not hesitate to hire him on any criminal matter.
