Excellent Attorney and Team
I contacted David's office for guidance and Kate was very professional and thorough with asking me questions and answering mine. Bryan and David both helped me and walked me through every step of my case and provided me with sincere honest expectations. I would recommend this office to anyone in same or similar situation they genuinely care for not only their clients but also how the case could potentially affect their health and well-being.

From the first call I knew I choose the right lawyer
From the very first call to Kate who took all my information, I realized that his team were truly old school professionals. After being let go after eighteen years for restructuring, David and Bryan were able to give me back the confidence that I needed to push forward with his knowledge and professionalism. Listening is an ART that has to be practice daily and his team delivered. I would highly recommend!

Highly Recommend
The first time I met David I walked in with mixed feelings and emotions about my termination from my previous employer. After telling David my story, he assured me I had been wrongfully terminated. He gave me the confidence I needed and made me realize that I did have a strong defense. He was honest and gave me facts. He assured me there would be obstacles and nothing is a guaranteed “slam dunk”, but he believed in my case and was confident it would be a good outcome, and it was. His knowledge in his field of practice is unsurpassed and I felt comfortable following every suggestion he gave me regarding my case. Not just David, but his entire team as well, were amazing. I cannot thank them enough. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone dealing with a wrongful termination.

Diligent Professional and Honest
David was amazing to work with throughout my entire case. He gave a very detailed and honest assessment on how my case would be handled and advised of any points that may need further explanation or documentation. David never once gave me a reason to question my decision to hire him or false hope in his ability to represent my case. In fact it was his knowledge and Professionalism that made me very comfortable with the entire process. David is extremely knowledgeable with employment law and remained persistent to protect my rights. Highly recommended

The best decision I made was hiring Mr. Young
David and his Team are amazing at making you feel comfortable with a circumstance that is anything but easy. Based on the information they provided, I was never uncomfortable and never second guessed anything I was being told. They are honest and upfront, and will always make sure you are 100% on board with everything before making decisions on your behalf. I couldn't have asked for better representation.

Wrongful Termination
David took on my case and he did a wonderful job of representing me. He was very upfront and honest from the beginning. Providing me with a realistic outcome. His staff communicated consistently with me throughout the entire process. I was wrongfully terminated. I felt as if I didn't have a voice. David and his staff were my voice.

Would Hire Again
Mr. Young provided excellent representation in my dispute against my former employer for age discrimination and retaliation. He expertly guided me through the legal maze and proved to be a calming force in what could easily be described as a very anxious time. He and his excellent staff were always promptly responsive to my requests and inquiries. No question was ever insignificant, no phone call ever ignored, no concern ever without merit, and no rock ever unturned. Mr. Young put my interests above all others, (including his own) with his main goal being my total satisfaction in the successful resolution of my case. As I have served in a retail venue for many years, I know how important it is to develop a lasting, personal relationship with someone who truly cares about you and your situation. This is particularly important since the wheels of justice often churn at an exceedingly slow pace. Although I do not anticipate encountering a similar situation in the future, I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Young again as my employment attorney. I am totally satisfied with the settlement of my case, but more importantly, with my decision to engage Mr. Young as my attorney. If you want an honest evaluation of your case with realistic expectations and expert counsel, Mr. Young is the person to call...you will not be disappointed.

Extremely knowledgeable and professional
David Young and his staff are truly professional, knowledgeable, considerate and extremely fair. I went to him for a wrongful termination suit. From the very beginning, my spouse & I felt so comfortable and in far better control of the situation. He & his staff made us feel like we were important and told us up front what to expect. He provided us specific details of the step by step process and kept us informed at every turn. I would highly recommend Mr. Young if you require representation. I am so glad we turned to him after speaking with other counsel. He made me feel important after the situation I was in and showed me that I was not just another client but a very important client to him.
