Attorney Smith is very knowledgable and effective in providing the necessary documents to protect our family and assets in the case of an emergency. He will educate you about the process prior to taking the case, and will provide realistic goals and outcomes.

David is a very competent and thorough lawyer. He handled a complex, multi-state issue for one of my clients with a property in Hawaii. Throughout the process, I could always count on David communicating well and handling the matter efficiently and effectively. I highly recommend this lawyer.
