    I endorse this lawyer. I have known and worked with Dustin since 2008 when I was at the DA's office and he was with the Public Defender's Office. He is a great lawyer, and it truly is a pleasure when I find myself having him as co-counsel. I always appreciate his legal mind and any insight he shares with me.
