He reviewed everything with me along with his paralegal carol. Got everything I asked for, was enthralled with his service. He’s a very good lawyer especially for a flat rate no retainer absolutely the best bang for your buck. Couldn’t be happier with the results and with his service. I will definitely be rehiring him in the future if the need comes about.

Custody, Child Support, and Visitation.
I just wanted to take the time and tell Tammie (paralegal) and David thank you. They made me feel like apart of a team and very comfortable rather than just a client. I am very happy with the work,effort, and also grateful for the time that they spent on my case. They gave me a sense of reassurance and a no nonsense approach, putting everything out there on the table so I would have an idea of possible outcomes. I'm very happy with the outcome and highly recommend. If I ever need a lawyer again, i will definitely be using David and his staff again!!

Believe me he's no joke
Lived a year stress behind 2 cases but today walked away thanking God first then Mr. Green. Professional and friendly staff but Mr. Green is one amazing lawyer. Makes you feel like you're an old childhood true friend not a client. Met him outside courtroom while he was there for another case as his confident demeanor pulled me to him. I can personally testify why... believe me he's no joke in the courtroom he's a beast I mean the best!

Bar none the best criminal defence lawyer in the area
Mr, Green made me and my family feel comfortable that he would provide us with the best legal assistance we could get. He did just that. He kept me up to date on anything going on in my case, and always returned my calls right away for any questions I may have had threw out the time. I would suggest him to any one in need of a great attorney. I greatly appreciated his legal counsel for my case.

Wonderful Advocate
There was excellent communication. My divorce was taken care of in a timely manner. Everything was very organized and you understandable.

True Justice
I found the general I needed. David Green. He was my counselor, my advocate and my guide. He was tenacious in the pursuits of my interests. My trust was in him and his loyalty was to me. He led the fight in an arena that many consider to be dark and godless, yet he maintained a moral and ethical position, proving to be a man of honor. Because of his tenacity and drive for true justice, David was constant in his pursuit on my behalf. Victory was achieved. All charges against me were dismissed in open court.

Divorce with Children
Do not hire if you intend to contest any part of the agreement. I provided ample evidence of the lack of stability and basic motherly instincts related to a custody hearing. David did not meet with me once before the actual hearing, preferring to allow all of the information go through the paralegal. That paralegal was able to do what was needed for our first hearing, but then left the firm. David was completely unprepared for the second meeting. We were given a joint custody visitation agreement that he counseled me to agree with. I told him multiple times my ex would not be able to adhere to this agreement and questioned him on the impact of child support. He stated the child support (which she was paying me) would not be impacted (i know have to pay her). He counseled me to sign the agreement and we would appeal with the court. After the hearing, I was then told I could not appeal due to a technicality that he should have been aware of during the hearing. When I voiced my concerns over his lack of experience and lack of preparedness, he then let me go as a client, without a refund for the prepaid services he never provided.
