Organized, excellent communicator, did an excellent job for me
I very much appreciated the thoroughness and depth of David's research as well as his tactical advice and clarity of the written reports he sent me. It was also extremely helpful to have useful estimates in advance of the costs involved in each step, both for the research and potential litigation.
