  • Scott Patrick Distasio

    David and I used to be law partners. During the ten years we worked together, David's focus was always on his clients. His passion and drive to provide the best legal representation possible is obvious to anyone that knows him. He is that rare breed of lawyer that can both understand the most esoteric legal point and explain it in a way that is understandable to judges and juries.

    David Weinstein is one of the state's leading litigators. He practices at the very highest level and is among the nation's top environmental attorneys. His breadth of knowledge and legal skills are superb. I recommend him highly.
