Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Dave is a good lawyer. He can settle cases in a reasonable fashion, but isn't afraid to try a case when it needs to be tried. He doesn't keep a case going just to line his pockets. He gives good advice to his clients.

David is a childhood friend of mine and for the past few years my law partner. David is an excellent attorney who gives each client his personal attention so he can understand thier needs. He is extremely conscientious, caring, pays attention to every detail, and completes his work in a timely manner. He is very involved in the Ohio State Bar Association where he serves on several committees and addresses issues that are important to all attorneys and the citizens of Ohio. David is a great attorney and a better person who I highly recommend.
