Rear end collision
David did an excellent job right from the very start. David came to me and worked around my schedule for our first visit to discuss my case. David and his team kept me informed through the whole process.

There for me.
David was there for Me and my Family when I needed Professional Help because of something that happened to me in 1999 at my workplace that was not my fault for being in the right place at the wrong time. Thumbs Up to Him and His Team that kept me up to date on important things that they needed from me or progress going forward that they thought I needed or wanted to know as things progressed :) THANKS TEAM

Excellent Lawyer!
Excellent attorney. I consulted him with a few questions I had and he answered back very quick and with precise responses. I reccomend him for any personal injury case questions
Posted by Joe | November 10, 2012
David immediately responded to my Avvo question with very good advice; most highly appreciated and recommended!
I am carring for my dear wife of 32 years who has FTD dementia and her evil stepson's who shun her and hate me have decided to falsely report me to ADULT PROTECTIVE SERVICES (APS) for some how abusing her. Everyone who knows us knows for a fact that I would never do such a thing. Only after her mind is gone have they decided to launch such an evil attack. I did not know what to do, I have very little money left because I was forced to quit my job to care for her. I found Avvo and thought I would give it a shot. Within the hour David responded and advised me to immediately call her doctor's and tell them what is going on, and to let them know AVS would be contacting them. My wife's Primary Care Physician has known both of us for more than 20 years was furious when I explained what these men were doing. She said she would let APS know that we have always been very loving to each other and she knew for a fact that if this was true, my wife would have told her when it happened. Great Advice David! Thank you. Most Highly Recommended!
