  • Danielle M. Griffith

    I had the pleasure of getting to know Dustin as opposing counsel on a large construction defect matter approximately five years ago. While we were on opposite sides, I found Dustin to be an extremely knowledgeable, competent, civil and zealous advocate for his clients. He was always exceptionally prepared and an absolute pleasure to deal with. In addition to being an exceptional attorney, Dustin is an equally exceptional person. I highly endorse this lawyer.
