David gives it to you straight and reasonably. I had a very difficult situation with my teenage daughter that could have restarted a custody dispute that had already cost me over $100,000 (and I lost!) while I was represented by another attorney. I went to David on the advice of a good friend who'd used him for his divorce proceeding. David coached me to do nothing - that's right - nothing - and it worked out to be the best thing I could have done. It was pretty selfless advice for an attorney because I was prepared to go to court, and fight and spend money on this emotional issue. I've continued to use David and recommend him to my friends every since.

Glad to have found this site. I actually worked with David a couple of years ago during my divorce. He was recommended to me and as I trusted my friend, and was completely ignorant to the divorce process, we met and I quickly new this was the guy I wanted to represent me.
He explained the entire process clearly and concisely and told me what to expect. It wasn't sugar-coated and I never felt it was about a paycheck for him. And when you don't have a lot of experience with lawyers this was really appreciated.
Here's what David told me and maybe it will help you too. He explained that in divorce court women usually hold all the cards. But instead of just throwing up his hands and looking for a way to minimize the potential damage he went on the offensive. It was never hateful towards my (soon to be) ex-wife, that wouldn't have worked for me. But it was about making me understand that marriage is a business contract and the more 'ammunition' I had the better.
Divorce sucks. But with David I was able to create some terms that I thought were fair. This guy's a pro and I would highly recommend him to any man who needs someone who works his ass off for you.

I needed someone to handle my domestic partner disolution...which was "supposed" to be be amicable, but wasn't. David knew just how to take care of every detail.

I have had the good fortune of working with David on multiple projects and am continuously impressed by his intellectual agility and ability to interact with clients and attorneys alike. David provides excellent representation to each and every client and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney for their family law matters.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have had the pleasure of consulting with David Pisarra on several family law matters, and have referred him a number of cases. I am a litigator and not a family law specialist, but when issues overlap David is my go-to guy for reliable information and good counsel. On those occasions I have referred clients to David, the feedback has been uniformly positive. Finding someone who takes a special interest in father's rights is an added bonus, but I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone in need of assistance on Family Law related issues.
