Before I hired David, divorce was the most stressful thing I had every been involved with and I think many will agree with me. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. David understands the law, many times informing the judge on current law in my case. He is very organized and remembered facts about my case that I had forgotten about, and knew how to use the information I told him to my advantage, I didn't have to think or try to strategize, he was always two steps ahead. David was also very willing to try to mediate and strike a deal, in order to try to avoid going to trial. But if you go to trial, he's the one you want in your corner. I did go to trial and in the end my ex despised David more than me. David was worth every dollar spent and didn't waste my money with unnecessary actions.

We worked with David for a child custody case. From the initial consultation, David showed nothing but care and concern for us and our case. He is absolutely attentive and extremely timely when it comes to emails and returning phone calls. The courtroom is where he really shines! He is educated and articulate and really "shows up". He also has great rapport with the officials at the courthouse which makes a big impact. Most importantly, he got the job done! We also had a lot help from Tauni. She is extremely professional, friendly and in the know when it came to our case. She was phenomenal as well. If you're looking for an attorney and a team that cares for you, as well as your bottom line, this is it. We would use David for any legal issue/advice we have going forward. Thank you again David!

David Luca is not only a very intelligent and great lawyer, but a great person with lots of great energy. He always was there to answer my questions promptly, precisely. We ended up winning all parts of my case and in the end, results were more than expected.

I know that my divorce and subsequent child custody battle wouldn't have been as smooth as it was with anyone else leading the way. It's been ongoing for over 2 years and although I don't deal with David as much as before, he's still my first phone call when anything goes awry. Not planning on getting remarried/divorced again but if I was, David Luca would be my only choice.

He is extremely professional, educated and gets the job done. He and his team follow up with you accordingly and respond within minutes when asked a question.
He handles my family law case and with him I got the support/alimony and custody that I asked for due to his expertise. (My ex and his lawyer did NOT make it easy-mind you)
He is highly knowledgeable and am confident when he represents me.
I highly recommend him for all your needs.

I would like to thank David and his team for successfully pulling off my divorce case. All I had was a 30 minute consultation with David and we communicated from emails regarding my case . Although there was a lag in Santa Clara family court because of strike and moving to new building, I got my decree quickly than I would have expected. I will gladly recommend your service to my friends and family if they need any sometimes

David was a pleasure to work with. The only reason this review is not better is because the judge he had to work with was new. So, David did not have any experience on how to deal with him. It would have made a big difference too as the judge did things in what I consider inappropriate ways. It was a post MSA support issue and the judge brought his feelings of the MSA into the case. He did not want to make a legal determination on the issue and basically 'suggested' we settle even though the other parties position was ridiculous. Still, David was a trooper and let me know my options and his suggestions. I believe he did all he could given the circumstances. Now that he knows how this judge operates I'm sure he is killing it.

I thought I was in a real messed up situation. My ex-wife works for the county court system and pulled many tricks on me when filing for divorce. When I did my initial interviews with a bunch of attorneys, I saw a wide spectrum. Some were akin to smooth talking car salesmen, some were very technical with the law and some were downright incompetent. But David had the perfect balance between knowing the law and being street smart/clever. His demeanor at the first interview was the total opposite of that of a salesman. He didn't make any promises. He seemed tough but he seemed to know what he was talking about. I decided to go with him and I have not had any regrets ever since.
The main thing with David is that he sincerely tries to close the case as opposed to many attorneys that just try to drag the case. He will advice you to take a deal when it makes sense and will fight it in the back alleys if you decide not to take it. He knows his law but is also prudent with using it. And he is very connected/influential in the legal world which is something that matters a lot more than one would think.
He does not bill for petty things such as pencils or gourmet meals. He has a very regular daily schedule that starts at 5ish. He makes it a point to respond to your emails within a day. He is also usually available for a phone consultation within a day or two.
My case was closed within a year! I didn't have to break the bank and the terms of the settlement were very good too.
All in all, David is an outstanding attorney who works really hard for his clients. He offers the best !/$ that you can find in San Jose. I can't recommend him enough!
