We Won. David Secrest represented me in an Age Discrimination and Employment Harassment lawsuit that lasted over 2 years. During that time David kept me updated with everything that was going on. There were no secrets or surprises. He stayed on top of all timetables and motions from the defense.
The defendant had no intention to settle, so we ended up in court with a jury trial. David put together a case for the jury that was flawless. He was prepared, knowledgeable of the law and he was ready for anything the defense threw at us. In the end, the jury agreed with everything we asked for and more, all thanks to the job David did. He is one of the good guys that you want on your side. And We Won Big.

I selected Dave Secrest to represent me in an employment discrimination and personal injury case and it was my best decision. My case was very difficult against a major corporation and movie studio. Dave took me under his wing and guided me through every step of a two year struggle against a Goliath. In the end they caved and we settled weeks before the start of the trial.
Dave was patient and very thorough in all his work. Where I got my most entertainment was watching him go up against the high caliber defense team in the depositions. He knows his stuff and he makes you feel a part of your case as well. I've already sent a good friend to Dave, whom he also worked with to a satisfactory result for her. In the end I felt vindicated and knew that having Dave on my side was a great choice. I'm happy to feel like I made a new friend. Thanks Dave!!

Like David who slew Goliath, Dave Secrest entered the battlefield created by my wrong termination and faced the corporate giant responsible for this atrocity. With unlimited money to finance one of the most successful legal teams in the Bay Area, the Archdiocese presented a defense in which David skillfully found its vulnerable areas. Using his depth of lawful knowledge, his focused and strategic attack, and his unwavering confidence in the innocence of his client, Dave slew the giant. It was a victory overflowing with satisfaction, and the termination was recognized for what it was, wrongful! My heart is still filled with gratitude for this gifted and professional lawyer.
