This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
David’s comment: “This reprimand concerned a firm administration issue, was not related to David's abilities and honesty, and had no impact on David’s clients.”

I hired David to represent me in my divorce case. David always gave solid, accurate advice, whether I wanted to hear it or not. He made very clear what was possible, and could tell me what likely outcomes would be depending on the path we chose to pursue.
In particular, what I appreciated about David was that he limited our discussions to just the facts, and didn't try to work as a faux therapist while my bill racked up unnecessarily. He was very efficient in communications, and this kept the ultimate bill fairly low. In fact, my total bill was nearly a third of what my ex was billed from her own attorney.
I would absolutely hire David again, and was glad to have his help with this case. While I didn't get everything I wanted, in the end, the settlement was fair, I was able to keep 50/50 custody of my kids, and kept half of the assets in our estate. I wouldn't have been able to do so without David's help.

I have had a professional relationship with Mr Burbidge since 1997 when I retained him for a child support case.
Since that time he has represented me in multiple hearings, contempt & custody modifications. I believe that he always has my best interests in mind each time we prepared for court. I have never questioned his decision making, reasoning or recommendations and he has shown all of the patience that has been needed to earn the best outcome in all of my cases which I had a hard time with. He has done many wonderful things to help make my children and myself have a better quality of life. When I'm asked if I know of a good attorney by any of my peers, I always recommend David Burbidge.

David is a skilled and experienced family law lawyer. He is committed to serving his clients' interests. He is the lawyer I would want to be representing me if I needed one. Also, I am familiar with the circumstances of the reprimand. It concerned a firm administration issue. It was not related to David’s abilities, his honesty or integrity, and it had no impact on his clients. It in no way affects my view of him as a person or lawyer.
