After meeting with several attorneys I finally found David I knew within the first five minutes of talking to him he was the man I needed to hire . I am a licensed real estate agent and was arrested for burglary charge . I have no previous criminal history and my license was at stake . since I did not understand law David sat down and explaid everything to me in a very simple format. he was able to get the case rejected pending further investigation . I am hopeful that this is all going to go away w I am hopeful that this is all going to go away . David is a wonderful man and I highly recommend anyone out there facing criminal charges

Mr. Elden was wonderful! He is professional and carries the heart of a teacher. He will explain the complexities of law in a very simple way and lays down a foundation of understanding so that you will know what the next steps are and what to expect.
He was honest with me and my situation. He even explained that his representation wasn't necessary in my situation and that I didn't need to hire him.
Imagine that! A lawyer who cares about people more than money!
David Elden is a true professional and in the event that I need his services, I will definitely be coming back. I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a questionable spot and needs professional advice or representation!

When I was first contacted by the FBI regarding my case, I had no idea what to do. David was recommended to me by a friend and colleague, and I am glad I chose him to represent me. Initially, I was facing up to several years in jail, but with his help, I ended up with probation. David's experience and connections were crucial in my success. He kept me well informed and was always accessible by phone and email. During such a stressful and tumultuous time in my life, I felt confident with him on my side. I truly got the sense that he cared about me as a client, and I am grateful for what he did for me.
