Highly Recommended
We were in a complex business situation with many parties involved and approached David for help. David Burgess is sincere, knowledgeable, and resilient. He always advised us on the best possible solution in the best interest of everyone involved. He helped us, going above and beyond regular business hours to resolve highly time-sensitive issues. David is a master negotiator and an excellent problem solver. He demonstrated sound intellect, effective & timely communication, and emotional intelligence during the entire process.

Our Attorney
When it came to selling my business I was very nervous about all the contacts i would be facing and I wanted to really get a hands on attorney who could walk my partner and I thru this process. David was just that person, he was a very good man who handled our needs with the most deal of professionalism I could have hoped for, we certainly picked the best person for the job and would have no problem recommending him to anyone who is looking for a good attorney..

EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT
My small business has used David Burgess on many occasions for construction related issues and employee related issues pertaining to my business. He is knowledgeable in his field and was recommended to me by my previous lawyer who has since retired. Over the past year we have made several telephone appointments. I like the fact that he follows up via email and closes each action in a timely fashion with no reminders! I highly recommend his services!

President/CEO/Manager
Attorney David Burgess is wonderful to work with. His law firm provides all the necessary legal advises for your specific needs & will guide you all the way through. I'm a self-employed business owner in healthcare who came to seek the assistance of Atty. Burgess to make sure I have restructured my company the way it should be. Atty. Burgess will listen and will carry on, accordingly. He provides good input regarding the pros & cons of your thoughts and suggestions. His firm is well reasonable. Services comes first before anything else. Money in not everything at this law firm. He is very flexible when it comes to terms and conditions. I truly value all the time, effort and most of all the patience he had to experience with me with all the questions and concerns I had in my process. His willingness to help others is outstanding!

501(c)(3) Tax-Exemption Work
David Burgess provided excellent legal advice and support in our process to complete the 501(c)(3) application with the Internal Revenue Service and State of California. David was very thorough in his communication with the Board of Directors and kept us informed of the progress of our application. He was very persistent with the very involved process, and we always had great confidence in his ability. We celebrated with him when we received final approval with the IRS and the State of California.
