Excellent Experience
David is an amazing attorney, and a very decent person. He was professional, timely, knowledgeable, and patient when working on my case. His years of experience have given him a wisdom that sets him apart from other attorneys I have dealt with. I truly believe he does his best to advocate for his clients, and does the best he can for them. He got me through a very difficult situation. I can't recommend him enough.
