I would give him 11 stars if I could!
Hiring David Gross to represent my son was the best decision I ever made. My son had gotten himself into a good bit of legal trouble and Mr. Gross exceeded my expectations by achieving the best outcome humanly possible. From day one he showed a deep level of concern and involvement, I was kept informed every step of the way and communication was outstanding. Stop calling lawyers and hire David Gross, you can thank me later.

Outstanding Service
Attorney Gross represented me in court for my traffic citation. The outcome was in my favor and exceeded my expectation in that he was able to get my case dismissed. His office staff, Madison, was very helpful. The rate they charge is very reasonable.

Truly Grateful
Mr. Gross represented me in court for a traffic violation. I was a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle when I was crossing a neighborhood street off of Carolina Beach Rd. I was charged with failure to yield to oncoming traffic. When I contacted Mr. Gross, I was recovering from a bad injury. I was shocked and disheartened by my circumstance and seeking advisement. In hearing my story, Mr. Gross demonstrated a great deal of compassion and treated me with respect and understanding. He offered to represent me pro bono and revived much of the faith that I had consequently lost in humanity. His staff was friendly and approachable and kept me informed about the status of my hearing. My charge was voluntarily dismissed. I did not need to make an appearance in court. Instead of presenting to court, I was ecstatic to be able to welcome my displaced students back to school after a violent storm stole a number of days from our academic calendar. Needless to say, I am truly grateful to Mr. Gross for his representation and highly recommend him as a lawyer.

Strongly Recommend
Mr. Gross was my attorney for two traffic violations. He was able to get one of the tickets completely dropped and use a prayer for judgment for the other. I received no points on my license and my insurance was not affected whatsoever. Mr. Gross, along with Ms. Packer, were very informative and diligent in their work. Both parties went above and beyond for me and it was very much appreciated. I would strongly recommend the services of Mr. Gross to anyone.

Charged With DUI.... Best Attorney Around!
I was charged with DUI and knew little about what happened due to a medical condition. David went above and beyond what I expected. Mr. Gross and his assistant Kelly treated me like family and investigated so well that they knew the case better than myself or the officers involved. All of my phone calls and texts were answered or returned almost immediately, even after he was paid! You will not find another attorney like him anywhere. He is attentive, compassionate, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. I will not think twice when hiring/referring an attorney in the future. Hiring anyone else should be a crime! Thanks David, your hard work and dedication are undeniable. Couldn't ask for better representation.

Great lawyer
Mr. Gross and his staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient in getting my ticket resolved. After the court appearance I was notified by his office that my ticket had been reduced and all actions were taken to make sure there were no points on my license.

Affordable and Very Good
I sent an email to Mr Gross and his assistant contacted me right away with what I needed to do and the cost. It was very affordable especially compared to having to take a day off and sit in court all day. Very appreciative of the work and very pleased with the communication.

Satisfied customer!
What a pleasure it was to do business with Mr. Gross and Kelly! We are out of town and pushing the deadline for traffic tickets (company). They handled everything and kept us posted on details. Minimum fines and some dismissed. Great customer service, great results!!

Triffic light citation.
Received a traffic light citation after an accident. The officer advised me to get a DA letter and the charge would likely be dismissed. Being as I hate driving in the so called downtown Wilmington I contacted David and his paralegal Kelly. Ask if they could handle this for me with out my having to appear, answer was sure can. Handled everything via phone and Email for a reasonable fee, worth every penny not to have to go to Wilmington. Case was dismissed Friday the 17th June. Thanks Kelly and David Gary
