David is a top notch attorney. He is brilliant. He helped me settle an international move away with a child custody evaluation not favoring the move. Because of him, my child and I have a better future now and will be around family.
IF I ever need an attorney, I can't think of anyone better than him.
I highly recommend David for any complex child custody case.

As a psychologist I have sought out the assistance of David Glass on various legal questions and found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. His dual professional expertise in the areas of law and psychology make him a great resource for psychologists as well as the general public. He assisted me when a client of mine was going through a lawsuit that required I be deposed. David Glass helped me prepare for my deposition and I felt confident knowing I was following the appropriate guidelines to maintain my client's confidentiality and follow the law at the same time. I would contact David Glass again in the future for any legal questions that arise and I highly recommend him to others.

My wife and I, as I suppose many couples do, hoped to mediate our divorce. It was fairly simple. Our financial situation was transparent, we have two boys that we were going to share custody of, the support was a simple calculation, we were going to be equitable in the sharing of our possessions, in short we were NOT going to become that hostile, aggressive, divorcing couple that we'd seen in our circle of friends.
Then she hired a lawyer - I think their middle name was litigious. I was stunned when served with papers demanding full physical custody, an implication that I must be hiding money and a host of other unbelievable demands.
In a panic I began to canvass my friends for referrals and was led to David. During our first meeting and after painting the picture of our situation he calmly suggested that this case was a "poster child" for mediation. He explained why and essentially told me what he believed the end result would be, both in terms of custody and support. His first letter to opposing counsel indicated his belief that mediation was the most prudent, least expensive way to handle our case.
We received a letter back - the demands were outrageous, both in terms of custody and the demand for forensic accounting of our finances.
We were then forced to travel down this litigious route - I could not have had a more stable and knowledgable partner. After nearly six months of battling it out in mean spirited letters and aggressive hearings we reached a temporary ruling pending a "psychological evaluation".
We ended up in exactly the same spot as David had suggested we would during our first meeting.
There's a bit left to go in this process, but I have no doubt that the outcome will be as he predicted. I'm extremely grateful that David is on my team.
