I was referred to David after I was involved in an automobile accident in the fall of 2014. That accident changed my life going forward in my daily activities and life as I knew it.
I called David the week after and was surprised how diligent of an attorney he seemed to be on that first conversation. His work ethic and concern for my case was expressed very quickly. He called me himself when I needed to know something about the case or he would answer the phone when I tried to reach him. He always made me feel as if I was the only case he was working on, never rushed and constantly updating me. He called after I had procedures done, asking how I was and if I needed anything.
I would refer David to all my family and friends, he's hard working, very knowledgeable and dedicated to getting the most positive outcome for his clients!!!!

I badly injured my shoulder in 2008 while working as a truck driver and filed a workers compensation case. I had several surgeries and was never able to return back to work. The insurance company denied different treatment and sometime failed to pay me. In 2013, a friend told me about David and I had already fired 4 other lawyers. Other lawyers would never call me back or would fail to follow through with the plan. Because of my issues with prior lawyers, David was very reluctant to take my case but he ultimately decided to help me out. After my final surgery in 2014, my doctor gave me permanent restrictions of only a light duty job and because I am older and have no education there wasn't any real work for me anywhere. I was still about 10 years from retirement age. After several court appearances, David was able to settle my case in the end so that I had money for future medical care and money to replace the income that I have lost. He worked hard to get me the settlement that I deserved.
