Great attorney - I highly recommend!
David Petitjean has represented my business in both court and as legal counsel for all of my business matters. During our court case, he was extremely professional, reassuring and had a solid strategy to get the case dismissed (which he did). He was quick to share information and updates with me when he received them. He has also negotiated licensing agreements and lease agreements on my business's behalf as well has providing a wide range of legal counsel for all of my business needs. David is easy to work with, highly knowledgeable and will fight hard on your behalf. I highly recommend David Petitjean.

They dont make men like Dave anymore!
Excellent from start to finish. Kept me informed and was not shy in explaining everything to me. Kept me calm and was a great comfort in the courtroom. This man helped me reclaim my life and for that I am eternally grateful.
