I highly recommend David Gotzh. I wish I had met him sooner as opposed to my original attorney who administered my divorce. I had to essentially hire Mr. Gotzh to "fix" the areas that were causing major issues with my situation one year post-divorce (child support and visitation).
Mr. Gotzh was very accessible both via email and by phone. I felt that he actually listened to me and understood my concerns and my situation. I never felt like I was paying for a lawyer to bully me into decisions that I didn't agree with or understand (like I did with my original attorney). When I didn't agree with something, Mr. Gotzh took the time to explain to me WHY he was recommending what he was, and that was very helpful to me in making an informed decision. He was prompt with his paperwork and it was very clear to me that he fully educated himself on my options (even taking the time to head to the legal library to look up if something could be done better). I have never seen nor heard of an attorney who is more fair in their billing practices than he is. I finally felt like I had an attorney who actually wanted to help my family as opposed to take my money and make things worse so he can get more money out of me down the road. I am so relieved to have had him in my corner and I fully expect to hire him again if (when) needed.
To David - I thank you sincerely for you services. I thank you for giving me the tools I needed to stand up for what what right by my children. Keep fighting for families in need, good sir.

Knows his facts and law, did an excellent job in helping me defend myself! Wish I had his help from the start, would have saved me and my family a lot of grief and money. I would say he has a bright future in law!

Mr. Gotzh is undoubtedly a top notch attorney who has skillfully mastered his primary area of practice over the course of his professional experience. His sharp critical thinking and flawless work ethic are perhaps the key qualities which ensured the success of a remarkable number of his cases. I endorse this lawyer and encourage anyone who needs superior legal representation to opt for his services.
