Exceptional Legal Services
David Grey is everything I could possibly ask for in an attorney; Whip smart, aggressive on my behalf and unwilling to accept anything short of victory... He is also kind, compassionate and patient. I have had the privilege of working with some of the finest attorneys practicing law - and David Grey is among the very best. Hiring David Grey is one of the smartest decision I've ever made.

Genuine and Professional
I've known David a few years but it wasn't until a recent, unexpected death in the family that left my wife and I in unchartered waters with regards to the handling and legal ramifications of carrying out the duties as executor of a family trust. While I've met other attorneys in the desert, I felt the most comfortable approaching David with our situation. I've come to know David as an honest, genuine and understanding man of character. Through our conversations and David's explanation of the law, we were left with a sense of peace and confidence regarding the way in which to handle our situation. So whatever legal situation you're facing, I'd recommend giving David a call to analyze your situation and help formulate a game plan to achieve the best possible outcome. Many thanks, David.

Peer Review of David Grey
I have known David Grey as a fellow attorney for eight years. During that time I have referred numerous cases to him. Also, he has volunteered pro Bono for a nonprofit corporation on whose Board we both serve. Based on the client feedback I have gotten and personally observing the results he obtains, it is my opinion that he is an excellent attorney.

I would recommend Mr. Grey to my friends and my family
David represented me in a very complicated civil litigation matter. He was extremely professional during the entire case and was very patient with me in answering all my questions. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.
