David did what I wanted, and he did what I needed. I had an accident, but the individual responsible had no resources to cover my damages, so we had to pursue a claim with the insurance company. David was the only one who explained that to me. I interviewed two other lawyers before calling David, who was recommended by another patient in the rehab facility I was at. The 1st would not look me in the eyes for whatever reason (I do not trust anyone who won't look at me when speaking) and the 2nd one was practically begging me to hire him. Neither one explained in plain English what my options would be. David, on the other hand, looked me in the eye and was straightforward and gave great advice. He also kept me in the loop at all times. If I had questions I could always call and ask. He explained everything he was going to do and what I needed to do. He was personable, very nice, and very good at explaining how things would move forward with the case. I thought 'this is the guy' so I hired him.

They were outstanding. They started out as my lawyers and ended up as family, going above and beyond and being available every time I called them. I appreciate the overall comfort level they provided. From day one they came to my hospital room. They made it bearable when there were times I wanted to give up. They always gave me that positivity level to keep going. They treated me like a human being and not just a case number. They really care about their clients.
I was in a near-fatal car accident. I had surgery and was in a nursing home when I called them for my case. I was in need of an accident attorney. They are excellent at what they do, compassionate, and top notch in their knowledge - far exceeding any lawyer that I’ve heard of or dealt with. It was pleasant to work with the firm. They know what they’re doing
I will refer any and all my family and friends if ever in need of lawyers who care about the person

They have been fabulous. My case was a malpractice lawsuit. My fiancé at the time had passed due to a drug overdose. I did some research and they were the most qualified for what I needed. I researched them online and also talked to other lawyers who recommended the Fine Law Firm for my situation. The litigation I went through lasted about five years and they were great. It was a good experience under the circumstances. They’re very professional, prompt, thorough, and honest.
