Great lawyer
Had an accident end of 2014 was hit from behind David Fuchs took care of me from beginning to end. My car was repaired immediately and medical attention was given as I needed with no out of pocket to be worried about. Hopefully I don't have another accident but if I do he will be the first I call again.

Settled my case very quickly!
I hired Mr. Fuchs to help me with my accident. He immediately began to aggressively persue the insurance company and got all my bills paid fast. Then he got my car paid for and a settlement for me! Thanks again!

Aggressive but humble!
Attorney Fuchs is aggressive when fighting for the money you deserve due to your accident. He will not rest until you are satisfied with the outcome. He tells you things straight up without any sugarcoating, and that is what I like about him. There were some tough moments through my case (like in all others) but I can say Mr. Fuchs got me what I deserved for my injuries and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him and his staff that also does a great job by keeping clients informed of any updates.

Made my Accident Less Traumatic, thanks!
I am very thankful for the professional and personable treatment Mr. Fuchs provided when I was in an auto accident. He met with me personally, explained the process in detail and set my mind at ease. I recommend his services to everyone I know in need of a great attorney.

Highly recommended
Mr Fuchs went above and beyond the line of duty when I was in my accident. He not only calmed myself and my partner down while I was in the emergency room on off hours but followed up the following day to make sure we were OK. He has always been professional, caring and helpful in making sure that my best interest is at hand . I recommend him to anybody that is in need of a great attorney .

Timely Advice
I have had several instances where I've recommended patients to David who have been injured due to no fault of their own. In each of these cases, they felt David gave them a reliable explanation on how the law either worked in or not in their favor. He is very straight forward and knowledgable attorney and I feel confident in recommending his services.

Very sharp and experienced
I just wanted to take the time to alert others that Mr Fuchs is the consummate professional and Attorney. I was referred to him by a friend as I required an experienced Attorney who knows the laws in Florida and is willing to fight aggressively for the injured party. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient and answered all of my family members' questions and concerns. Unlike another Attorney in the area who didn't think much of our plight or case and wasn't responsive, he rolled up his sleeves and triumphantly steered the defendant toward a settlement we both desired from the outset. I'd recommend him to any individual that also was injured or sustained damages and requires the expertise that Mr Fuchs can offer.

The excellent service i reveived
Mr. David Fuchs was very professional and provided me with excellent service over the past five years. He took care of my two accident cases and they were all successful. Mr. Fuchs explained the process of my cases and stay on top of things at all times. He is dedicated and compassionate about his service he provided. I referred clients to him and will always refer clients to him, because I want them to receive the same excellent service I received.

Never again
His office staff is horrible I had a lien from my health insurance and his office missed one of the thing in the lien (didn't pay it prior to paying me) I now, have a bill in collections that I knew nothing about. Also my settlement went from 150,000 to 30,000 what kind of crap is that he does not fight for his clients at all never again would I go to his office. Also they take weeks to call you back you have to stay on their tails via email and vm horrible.

Response from David Fuchs January 21, 2016
The bill in question was paid by the client's health insurance provider. This should never, therefore, have been into collections. My firm is working diligently to resolve this on our client's behalf.

Very disappointing, no results and after 18 months, just withdrew/cancelled without explanation
18 months after the accident (someone - who had auto insurance I might add - rear-ended my car going at about 30 - 40 miles an hour) and with virtually no communication after the first couple of months, David notified me last month without explanation that he's withdrawing his council, canceling my agreement, and once I have my file (which he said he'll send me) he said he refuses to communicate with me any more. So, if you want a good attorney to look out for your best interests, go elsewhere. He got me an initial settlement offer of about $300 (three hundred dollars) which he declined, passed me on to a litigator, and after initial contact, this litigator never returned my calls. I must admit that David did refer me to an excellent chiropractor who treated my injuries and healed the back and neck pain (she was absolutely wonderful) - so for that I am grateful because I was in a lot of pain - but for everything else, I would run a million miles rather than go back to him to be treated like this. It's not even that the settlement offer was so poor, it's the total lack of communication, no updates, lack of respect, dropping my case like a hot potato without explanation - even though the guy who hit me had insurance!!! I don't understand why David did not do a better job, I guess I just chose poorly. I am going to seek further legal advice elsewhere, and just wish I had done that in the beginning.

Response from David Fuchs January 21, 2016
I regret that this client feels this way. An attorney has a duty to be frank, open, and honest about the chances for success and to communicate that to the client. Contrary to the above assertion, we did that here. An attorney also has an affirmative duty to withdraw from a legal matter where a conflict of interest arises and or where the attorney after a review of all of the medical and other evidence not feel that the client has an actionable claim.
