  • Stacey Michelle Goad

    David is an outstanding attorney. He is remarkably intelligent and well-versed in the law. He consistently provides excellent defense representation for his clients, regardless of how difficult a case may be. I know this because he and I handled many criminal cases as opposing counsel while I was a prosecuting attorney. Through the years, I grew to greatly respect David's legal skills. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly endorse him.

    David Abbott is an exceptionally capable attorney. He is highly intelligent and a persuasive speaker. He is also an energetic and determined advocate for his clients. He is cares about getting good results and is always well prepared. David has the experience which is often essential to protecting a criminal defendant's rights effectively. He has an exceptional memory for the precise details of our often-complicated system of constitutional criminal procedure. But he never neglects the big picture for legal technicalities, i.e., he works just as hard to help the client make his or her best personal impression on the judge or jury and he is well equipped to assess the importance of every witness and every piece of evidence realistically and with a view to protecting his client. I strongly recommend this attorney.
