A good attorney and confidant
David is very personable and very good about explaining the law in layman's terms so we can understand the different things that are in there. He is good about noticing the problem areas and to advise as to what is next, whether it is going to be bad or good. I am glad I have him as my personal attorney.

This in reference to David Kaleel, We hired Mr. Kaleel to handle a few things and I have not been disappointed. My husband and I bought a house almost 2 years ago and Mr. Kaleel represented us, He handled all the paperwork,guided us on all aspects and helped us with all the legal things as we had no idea in what direction to head, Made sure we were at the correct destination for each of our meeting with the housing Company and was very punctual ,He was very friendly and informative in what was to be done and made sure it was went smoothly. Mr. Kaleel also represented us in a small matter after we were established in our home with a pesticide company, he handled all the paperwork, sent them information to what we had no idea they needed and handled it beautifully, As they didn't fulfill their obligation to our contract. again very professionally done. I sent my friend to see him also, she was fighting a medical problem and needed her finances handled , housing, bills, ect and she said he was fantastic, everything was so easy and he had such a sincere personality that they didn't feel pressured or embarrassed but got the whole proceedings done promptly. I have had numerous questions that only needed a one word response with his background and would call the office and never once did he turn his back toward us, he answered them.My husband and I feel that if your in need of a competent and knowledgeable Attorney, Mr. Kaleel is your man. Mr. & Mrs. Richardson,Mendota

Great Lawyer
David Kaleel is a very intelligent, knowledgeable, experienced lawyer who has represented me and my family in a number of cases. He won a substantial amount of money from my employer which increased my yearly retirement pension until I die. We sold a house which he took care of all the legal obligations. He has provided us with a number of agreements pertaining to different members of our family. He is a great guy who will do an outstanding job representing you in any legal situation.
