David was always available to me and returned calls/emails in a timely fashion. He was professional, honest, knowledgeable, and articulate in his communications with me. I would highly recommend him to others.

Knowledgeable, resourceful, responsive, cost aware
I've worked with David Hrina on IP issues from registering trademarks to defending trademarks and creative work. He is knowledgeable, resourceful, responsive, and willing to work with me to control costs.

Most Highly Recommended Attorney
My husband and I engaged Dave Hrina’s legal services several years ago when we started the process of opening our own business. From the very beginning, Dave has always been 100% committed to making sure that we have all the necessary information to make the many decisions we have been faced with. He has handled all legal aspects of the business, from drawing up documents and contracts, to helping us secure a registered name, to providing advice when we decided to bring in another partner. Knowing that we were a start-up business, he always took into consideration the cost of certain services versus the value, and made recommendations on what would be our best route. We have never once questioned his integrity and know without a doubt that his legal advice is soley in our best interest. Dave’s expertise in the legal field is, simply put, incredible. Every time we have a communication with him, whether it be in person, on the phone, or through email, we are always amazed at his knowledge. I find law to be extremely confusing, and he has never hesitated to answer the same questions multiple times, no matter how many different ways we ask it, never losing patience! Last but not least, one of the most amazing things, to me, is how Dave makes you feel like you are his only client, no matter how “small” you might be. His responses to our questions are nearly immediate. His ability to remember details about our business is incredible, and I never doubt that he will be 110% prepared for any meeting we have with him. In conclusion, we would recommend Dave Hrina to anyone we know. We trust him completely and know that get nothing but the best legal services from him.

Extreme ability and talent. I strongly recommend Attorney Hrina
I have engaged Attorney Hrina on several occasions and cannot recommend him strongly enough. I feel the same way about lawyers that we all do; however when you need a whip-smart and talented lawyer to help protect and defend your business Attorney Hrina is who you should turn to. Over the years I have noted that many lawyers - and doctors - get "up to speed" on your case in the few minutes before they meet/speak with you. Attorney Hrina is always thinking about your case and your needs and is never - never - without immediate answers and/or salient and sage advice. My only regret about Attorney Hrina is that he doesn't practice in every field because I would hire him for all matters. And trust that is not hyperbole...his competency and ability is far and away the best in the field. My father always said, "If you buy the best you will never go wrong"...well, Attorney Hrina is the best.

Our Attorney David Hrina- An Intregal Part of Our Business
Since our business began 10 year ago, David has been our attorney. He helps us create our consignment contracts, our lease agreements, our incorporation documents and any legal matter with which we need guidance. He steers us away from potential harmful situations that could damage our company's profits or harm our ethical reputation. Being an online company means having many risk factors. David has been invaluable in not only guiding us in the right direction but educating us along the way. For example on a recent lease agreement, David again went the extra mile and checked the EPA reports regarding this property and it turns out they had 149 violations reported in the past. David not only notified us but taught where to look and how to pull those reports for ourselves as another safeguard for our company when looking at potential properties. David is honest and trustworthy in his dealings with us. We had a collections issue recently and David compared the chances of winning the lawsuit and the possible gain against the fees for pursuing the debt. He gave us his honest appraisal and allows us to make the decision. I believe most companies would simply pursue if asked, no matter the cost, even if it were to be loss after winning the suit. David is able to break down legal documents and explain to us in a manner that enables us to fully understand in a language we can follow. Let's face it, a 17 page document to lease an empty building for a 1 year term, contains a lot of legal verbiage that even most college educated people would find hard to follow. David is able to explain each paragraph and offer change suggestions that affords the most protection for us as the lessee. David has always made himself available to us. Our business is open 24/7 and key personnel work long hours, seven day a week. We sometimes work late into the night or on weekends and need immediate answers to critical questions. Our company had issues with zoning compliance at one of warehouses and the zoning department decided to perform an impromptu site visit on a Saturday afternoon during a customer pickup period. Although not one of David's scheduled work days, he answered his phone and guided us through the visit which resulted in allowing our customers to pick up their purchases and resume our business. So, to conclude my review of David as our attorney, he is an integral part of our business and considered part of our team as we continue to grow and move forward!!

Trusted Partner
Dave has worked with our company for several years. I have found Dave to give good advice and if he doesn't know the answer he will find it even if it means getting another person involved. As the CFO I can greatly appreciate the fact that he doesn't waste time or run up billing and will tell us if pursuing an issue/problem is a waste of money from the get go. Dave is an excellent attorney in my opinion and I trust him to do the right thing for us at all times.

Outstanding Lawyer with a Firm Grasp of the Regulations
As a senior environmental consultant, I have worked with Dave for the past 12 years assisting his clients on a number of complex environmental and due diligence issues. Dave not only has a firm grasp of the environmental regulations, but also combines this with solutions that are reasonable and beneficial to his clients. He is service-oriented, highly ethical, and looks out for his client's best interests. I have recommended my own clients to Dave when they are faced with environmental legal issues.

Uses his knowledge to screw over renters
I am sure he is a very good attorrney with contract but has no ethical values for those who rent from him!! According to him, a building is not required to have name on it or way to contact the owner'(s). So he doees not and does not expect life to happen to anyone! Then uses his knowledge to screw his renters over!
