This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
David’s comment: “David stipulated to a public reprimand for taking action that the bar determined was inappropriate. His client was not harmed by the conduct. The Oregon State Bar acknowledged that David's conduct was not motivated by greed or self-interest. David acted competently and zealously on his client's behalf.”

I worked with David for about 9 months through a truly bitter divorce back in 2011. It was complicated by business interests which required more discovery than the usual divorce. At no time did I feel that David or Wyse Kadish billed wantonly. In fact, David did a good job to help me anticipate costs, and provided tips on how to assure I not inadvertently run up bills. Among his suggestions: covering multiple issues in one email, rather than peppering him with multiple emails; and setting up short calls or meetings with a structured agendas for time-effiency.
Clearly my experience with David was good. He knows intuitively when to mediate, when to aggressively negotiate, and when to interject his killer sense of humor.
Finally, David understands how tough divorce is. He doesn't try to demonize the opposing party like some attorneys I interviewed. And he doesn't pander to the pain that we all experience as we endure this process.
I found David to be a tireless advocate, sincere and forthright, and feisty but compassionate. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

David is an excellent attorney who I had the honor to work with through my recent divorce. David kept things professional and he thoroughly explained things which helped a lot while working through this difficult process. I also have a great deal of respect for David's candor when it came to different things. I always felt like I was in good hands and I trusted David unequivocally.
