Facing a very tough trial
David was my lawyer on a case that lasted almost four years. He did everything possible to keep the costs down and not waste time and money. As my case started he insisted that every time I made a statement that he was going to use in the trial, I had to have the documentation to back it up. He was extremely diligent with his approach, knowledge and understanding of the facts that he was presenting. He made sure that I took an active part in the proceedings of the trial, by explaining what was going on, what happened and what was his future approach he was going to take. I trusted him completely, he was aggressive when he had to be, communicated well, and his approach to changing situations was amazing. I would highly recommend him to be your attorney. He will give you his best at all times. You can trust him whether he is defending you or you are the plaintiff. You cannot good wrong if you are looking for an honest, forthcoming, aggressive and upright attorney. He is the best.
