  • Samuel Anthony Silva

    I worked for David for approximately three years, first as a law clerk and later as an associate. He is an excellent attorney with encyclopedic knowledge of immigration and international law. David is the first person I turn to with any complex immigration issues, and his clients love him. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
