Dave is a very knowledgable and passionate attorney, with high energy. I have and would again, recommend him to my own clients. His past tax experience gives an added level of knowledge that is hard to find.
Posted by George
David has represented our firm from start up through mergers for over a decade. He has been able to follow our growth and strategy through strategic support of numerous issues including, partnership matters, large insurance claims, banking issues, tax situations, purchases of assets, acquisition of other entities, formation of entities, as well as strong personal support of owners. His understanding of small business operations as well as specific financial matters has allowed us to grow from three to nearly 30 associates. From a single production facility to now three. His strength is in understanding our needs while simultaneously broad enough to obtain key support for areas requiring outside the box resolve. His reputation, character, and performance exceeds expectations. This is the opinion of an owner who really dislikes attorneys. David is an excellent attorney.

I endorse this outstanding lawyer. David and I were associates at a Dayton firm and I was impressed by his high quality written product as well as his excellent professionalism. As a budding lawyer, I tried to model myself after his legal expertise and incredible attention to details.
