Truthworthy & Honest
“Truly the best attorney is David Lawler. When I was arrested I was completely frozen in fear. David Lawler is a man of his word and calmed my worries. He listened to my entire story, gave his advice, then gave me every option to do what I decided. I followed his advice of course. He goes all out for his clients, even calling himself to check on me throughout the ordeal . I’m very thankful for his and his staffs hard work and dedication, honestly he is an amazing attorney. Without him I believe I would be in a huge amount of trouble.” Robin
