Excellent attorney
Mr Truman was great to work with. He helped me resolve my unemployment overpayment. He was excellent to work with, fast to reply, and No matter how many hearings were scheduled I had his continued support till the end.

Easy to work with
Mr. Truman was easy to get a hold of, and was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. He was easy to communicate with and was thorough during my experience.

Very satisfied!
Dave Truman is an excellent attorney. When I was terminated from my position (wrongfully in my opinion though my former employer never admitted it), Mr. Truman took me on as his client. He is knowledgeable, hardworking and very responsive. In fact, when I first called him I was very surprised when he answered the phone himself. I was expecting to leave a voicemail message but instead I got to speak with him immediately. Mr. Truman walked me through the process of appealing my termination and he handled all settlement negotiations. As you can imagine, this is a very stressful process but knowing I had someone on my side with the necessary knowledge and experience made it more manageable. I’m very satisfied with the service I received and am happy to recommend Mr. Truman.

Came across as very helpful
David Truman came across as very helpful and offered me good advice regarding an issue where I received Invoice (without having received actual service). His advice alone was sufficient and I did not need to hire him.

When we needed an Attorney we Called Mr. Truman. Immediately we felt at ease and confident in his ability. He is very courteous and professional. I have to admit he does know his stuff when it comes to the law. He even was honest enough to to contact us about funds we had forgotten were due to us. Thank You David.

Review from Kathy B.
My husband passed away in July 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio and at that time personal property that belonged to me and my husband was confiscated from my home. I went to claim the property a week later and was denied getting my property back. I hired Mr. Truman in order to have my personal property returned to me. We just recently settled out of court and my property is now in my possession. My husband's death was very tragic and Mr. Truman was very compassionate and understanding in regards to my grief. I relocated 1600 miles away from Ohio and even with the distance Mr. Truman was always very responsive to my questions and kept me informed on a weekly basis in regards to my case. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and I would highly recommend Mr. Truman for legal services.

I would not recommend
I hired David Truman for an EEOC discrimination case against my employer. I signed an agreement for representation and paid my retainer. He never communicated with the EEOC and never handled my case. He never told the EEOC, my employer or my employer's attorney he was my attorney in the matter. I lost a lot of time depending on him and he did nothing for me.
