Highly Recommend David
After contacting David short notice with little time for him to prepare he did his absolute best and it was more than enough. After receiving all the details needed he built a great case and got a better result than we anticipated. I would recommend Dave to anyone and he will be my first call if im ever in need of a great attorney.

OVI Defense
I hired Mr. Mortimer as my OVI attorney. David did great work, left no stone unturned and listened to all my concerns with the case. David ended up getting my sentence drastically reduced and I was even told by the judge how great Mr. Mortimer did on my case! Highly Recommend!

Great attorney!
Attorney Mortimer came highly recommended in my search for an attorney following an OVI charge. Having never been involved in a legal matter I was very unsure of what to expect. Dave was very knowledgeable, responsive, and made me feel confident and comfortable in what was going on and potential outcomes. I was very happy with how the case turned out. I highly recommend Dave for your legal needs!

I feel that David Mortimer did an excellent job on my case!
I hired David Mortimer because I heard he was the best in town, I contacted him as soon as my situation became a problem and he was very helpful. My case ended up doing from a F2 charge to a M1 charge, I’m very satisfied with my results and plan to hire him again in the future for my legal needs.
