I needed help with a dire situation at work. Someone didn't like me and wanted me gone, despite an outstanding job performance on record. This was in the public sector so there was also a union involved and procedure that needed to be followed. I knew I needed an attorney, but didn't know how to find one that had the expertise and street smarts that I was looking for. I made numerous phone calls and consulted (in person) with two other attorneys before asking David Duchrow if he'd represent me. I am so happy he said yes.
My situation dragged out for months and time and time again, I'd be told one thing by the union (who was there to represent me) and something different by David. With his experience in appeals ("appellate law"), David was always one step ahead of the union because David would already know how this or that situation played out in the courts -- and he was well informed of the latest court decisions. It was this big picture type of thinking that ultimately got me a decent settlement considering the employer started out offering $0.
There were times I asked myself, "Do I really want to pay for an attorney? I have a union going to bat for me, won't that be enough?" All I can say is, I'm so very glad I had Mr. Duchrow on my team. I can confidently say that the only reason I got anything at all is because I had David Duchrow guiding and advising.
David Duchrow sees the big picture, the chess pieces, even when others trained in the law (and specifically in employment) couldn't see the same things he did with the same information. He's also one of the nicest and even-tempered people I've met. He was always patient and I did ask a lot of questions. David was careful to walk me through the logic of every piece of advice he gave to ensure I got it and understood the reasoning behind his recommendations. This helped me buy in to whatever it was he was suggesting and also gave me confidence when I had to face the ugliness of the situation before me.
The other thing I'll say is that his rate is extremely reasonable and David doesn't nickel and dime when representing you.
If you're in an employment situation and need an expert eye, someone with true street smarts or find yourself represented by a union, but wondering if you could do better, my short answer is this: Yes, you can do better. David Duchrow is the best I've come across when I was searching for an employment attorney. I'm extremely glad I decided to spend money on proper representation and I'm even more glad that it was on the right attorney.

David did very well with my case, which involved several complicated issues against a big Fortune 100 company. He was extremely easy to work with, responded to my inquiries in a timely manner, and very patiently remained a strong and assuring presence for me throughout the case. If you have a complicated legal matter, then David is the lawyer you want on you side. He just simply rules as an attorney. Good luck to you!

Davidâ€™s firm was originally referred to me by my union. They told me if they were going to litigate my case his firm would be their choice. At that time I had never had the need to hire an attorney. I was looking for an employeeâ€™s lawyer who was honest, direct, and knowledgeable about employment law. I found David to be all of these things and more. It was very important for me to feel comfortable with whom I chose to represent me. Since I am not a lawyer I needed someone who could explain to me what the process was in terms that I could understand. This in turn would allow me to help David represent me. He did an excellent job presenting my case. David Duchrow is an outstanding attorney with compassion, ethics, and an excellent knowledge base. I would highly recommend without hesitation David Duchrow and his firm. We could truly use more lawyers like David, it would make the world a better place.

David Duchrow has been my attorney for the past five years in a class action lawsuit, which is a pay for time worked labor disagreement, with a public entity. During this time we have been in superior court, appeals court and the supreme court over twenty-five times.
David was always on time, well prepared for all court appearances, prevailed in the appeals court and supreme court against a ruling by the superior court brought by the defendants.
If youâ€™re looking for an attorney that knows the labor law you cannot find a more knowledgeable attorney than David Duchrow. His work ethic, knowledge of the law and being able to present statues in a manner that brings a winning status to a case is unequaled.
Without hesitation I can recommend David Duchrow for any court cases you may have in regards to labor law.
