THE HIGHEST QUALITY LEGAL ANALYSIS, ADVICE & REPRESENTATION.

Having grown up in the Rocky Mountains, I love the outdoors.  I participate in local charity runs and other events, such as triathlons, mud runs, and Spartan races.  Working in construction to pay my way through school, and also at a major insurance company as a property and casualty adjuster, has helped pave my career in law.

Excellent job
I rented a place for massage this February, but the premises, I found latter, was too bad -- the neighbors of this place constantly make much noise. I decided to end the lease, but my building owner didn't want to do so. I had to ask for help from David . In less than two months David told me that the lease is successfully terminated and we can just leave it behind. David is very professional in the stuff he does, therefore I highly recommend him.

Legal excellence
David, Richard, and the rest of his staff have been invaluable in assisting with numerous facets of my complicated legal issues. They seamlessly work to ensure my personal and business issues are addressed as professionally as possible. They speak to my other attorneys and business associates to gather not only the content, but also the context that can only be garnered personally. I owe them everything and sincerely appreciate their care! I recommend David Pierce, JD, Richard Stinstrom and his staff without reservation!

Errors + Billing issues
David seems like and probably is a decent guy outside of the profession...but made erros and 1) tried to charge me to fix an error for a fling that was rejected to not understanding local rules 2)Made a verbal deal with the opposing who took advantage of the deal not being in writing which resulted in my being deposed twice and NEVER LANDING A DEPOSITION FROM OPPOSING. The error was compounded with a last-minute attempt for a reprieve that the court rejected and blamed be for not having more diligent counsel..they would not move the schedule. I think people dealing with serious ($$$) cases and especially federal should do their research.
