Thank you.
Thank you David for helping me navigate through a difficult situation I am in. It’s hard to know where to start when you live in another state. Your free advice was helpful and appreciated.

THE BEST LAWYER!!! He gets the job done & stayed in constant contact with me from beginning to end!
I Hired David to write a demand letter in a civil fraud case. The letter got things moving quick. After weeks of delays, the corporate office responded immediately to letter by offering me a full five figure refund. He was always available to answer all my questions and help me navigate Thru this difficult process. If you have ever been financially “wronged” or “cheated” by a big company and feel you have no options. You do!!! Contact David and he WILL make sure your money is returned. He even went above and beyond and was able to get everything i was entitled to. I will use him in the future for any and all legal matters. I highly recommend him. Smarted thing i did was hire him immediately. Thank you David!!! You clearly know the law and u treat people like their case is ur number one priority. The company who “committed fraud and took a LARGE sum of money from me wouldn’t return my money. After Davids well written letter they called the next day with ALL my money! He helped me step by step to guide me Thru it! Ur my Angel! Thank u so much!!!

Couldn’t ask for a better first time experience regarding legal cases
David was quick for consultation, reaching out and providing possible solutions for my case. He made the whole experience easy and comforted my anxiety as a first timer dealing with legal troubles. He is understanding (a quality every lawyers should have with their clients), sensible, and passionate about doing what’s best to get the most favorable outcome for your situation. I recommend Mr. Nazzaro to whoever seeking representation or an attorney. He contributed to my TRO/DVRO dismissal and I am forever grateful for all of his help!

Great advice
I consulted with David through email about the outcome of a case that a prior attorney had been very unhelpful in. He was great in explaining my options and what my potential future steps were given what had happened. He also was not at all pushy in recommending his services. Based on my interactions, I would recommend consulting and potentially retaining his services for any future legal needs.

Vandalism San Mateo
David is an excellent attorney! His advice and the letter he wrote helped me a lot. With the letter I was able to move out from a not safe community. Thanks David.

Life Saver
When I hired Mr. Nazzaro I was in desperate need of help. I was in the middle of a divorce and custody battle. She had a father with deep pockets who was creating a life where I couldn’t see my kids and was paying child support that was 90% of what I made. The ONLY REASON I see my kids today is because of David Nazzaro. My child support has been corrected and all criminal charges have been dropped. I went from ZERO HOPE to getting to see my kids and go to work without having ALL of my money taken out of my paycheck. Thank you Mr.Nazzaro for giving me my life back!!

Davids sound advice
I consulted with David on the phone, He listened, he never cut me off, I did ramble (Legal matters can be very upsetting) He never pushed to sign a contract, or want a retainer? Yes free legal advice! I felt like I was talking to a friend who cared. If and when my situation changes, David will be my first call

Hands Down The Best Attorney in Town
I needed an attorney for a DUI. Dave charged me a reasonable rate and provided more than legal representation. He was genuinely concerned with my well being and offered valuable advice on my life situation. The court results were better than expected. I owe Dave much more than thanks for a job well done in the courtroom but gratitude for helping me improve my life. Thank You Dave!

Great lawyer
I had a tenant-landlord case. I did not employ him since lawyers are not allowed in small claims court but he helped in assessing my case and gave me useful pieces of advice.

Very Pleasant Experience
I have worked with many attorneys in the past and David, by far, was one of the most organized, knowledgeable and professional people I have ever dealt with. He was always there to answer my many emails, on time to court, walked me through the intimidating process of the court system and had a reassuring tone to his voice. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Fantastic lawyer
A little over two years ago I was involved in a road rage incident. I was recently charged with misdemeanor hit & run because of that incident. David was absolutely great. He’s very knowledgeable and has a great way of explaining things. After speaking with him on the phone I felt a lot better about things. I hired him and he was able to get the charges dismissed. I highly recommend him.

Best lawyer I ever spoke with
Mr. Nazzaro promptly replied to my question on this website. With every question I had, he provided an answer, even during private messaging. The information was clear and realistic; and without judgement and without limiting information. Mr. Nazzaro is a good kind man.

"David Nazzaro provides many thoughtful answers on the pages of Avvo, and I am grateful for his service to the community and legal profession.
