FOR ESTATE PLANNING, TRUSTS, PROBATE AND REAL ESTATE LAW, CONTACT ME TODAY! WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN WORKING AGGRESSIVELY TO REACH PRACTICAL LEGAL SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR NEEDS. YOU WILL ALWAYS FEEL COMFORTABLE WORKING WITH US, AS WE WILL TREAT YOU WITH KINDNESS, COMPASSION AND RESPECT.

I have been practicing law for 20+ years and litigated over 75 cases involving wills & trusts, real estate matters, business and tax disputes.  My office has handled hundreds of probates and prepared over hundreds of different kinds of trusts.  I have a specialty in tax law (L.L.M.). The best part of what I do is working with people and providing solutions to those in need.  Usually by the time people come to me, a legal crisis has already happened and they need direction, a road map and somebody to help get them there without breaking their bank.  They need a loyal advocate, a person who can shoot straight and give them easy-to-understand answers without legalese or legal arrogance.  I am that person.  I have seen the inside of more courtrooms than I care to count.  And I strongly believe that litigation makes an attorney better equipped to handle transaction on behalf of his or her client.  My clients vary from Homeowner's Associations to elderly mothers, from multiple franchise owners to children who just lost a parent.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Truly the best Lawyer I have ever encountered! We needed a Lawyer, we looked and researched Lawyer’s. We made an appointment, met with him and hired him right then. No more headaches for me. David took over and guided us. He is a both a good person and Lawyer. I highly recommend him.

Probate, Real Estate and Trust
I have worked closely with David for over 10 years. He is my “go to” guy when it comes to all matters involving real estate disputes, trust disputes and probate matters. I have referred him many clients and they have always been glad I did. David is not afraid to take on complicated and difficult matters. He’s sensitive to client’s concerns and is aggressive when he needs to be. Not only have I referred him to others, I have used him many times for my own personal legal matters that have come up from time to time.

Trust Litigation
I hired David to handle a trust litigation matter. I was a beneficiary of a Trust, which owned several real properties, but we were having issues with the trustee. David met with us, prepared and filed the paperwork in court and brought all of these contentious issues to a close in a way that maximized my interest in the Trust. He even agreed to defer his fees until the properties were sold. David knows this world, and I was very happy with his services. You will be too.

Highly Recommended
I used David for a probate that involved the sale of real estate. True to his word, he advanced the costs and fees and helped me navigate the tricky tax and legal issues that arise in these complicated matters. David is a consummate professional who always looks out for the best interest of his clients. I highly recommend him.

Best independent lawyer in town!
Mr. Jones has helped me for many years. He has drafted estate planning documents, a premarital agreement, and given me crack advice on tricky real estate deals. His advice has been consistently superb, and his attitude pleasant, positive and upbeat. I recommend him to all my friends, who have also been 100% satisfied with his services.
