It is without hesitation that I endorse David. He is technically skilled in and out of the court room, while offering clients creative business solutions. Equally important to my endorsement of David is his tenacious and zealous advocacy for his clients. His tenacity is balanced by his ability to resolve highly emotional disputes in an efficient and economic fashion. He has a keen sense of knowing when and when not to push to best represent his clients. David is an excellent negotiator and litigator.
