  • Soheyl Tahsildoost

    David is my go-to-guy for bankruptcy issues and the only attorney who I will ever refer bankruptcy matters too. He is one of only a handful of professionals whose work I can always trust. There are few attorneys who are as dedicated and detail-oriented as David, so I strongly endorse him.
