Truly knowledgeable and experienced professional
Employment dispute. David spent time to go over the risks and options in great detail by breaking down the possible outcome of the given situation. He was there for me in every step of the way with sound advice and kind approach. He recommended mediation process which we did and I put my trust in David to negotiate the 8 hour day process to my advantage. At the end it was such a relief. Looking back on several months of preparation for the hearing I appreciate how organized, calm, attentive and helpful David was at the dedicated time spent on my case.

Efficient and effective consultation on lay-off situation
David provided quick turnaround phone support on all my questions during a recent unexpected layoff event. Due to his ability to consult with me in a timely fashion, I was able to part ways with my employer with a larger severance.

Focused, honest advisor
When I left my last company, David advised me on my separation agreement. He quickly outlined my options and recommended a path forward. Based on his analysis, I was able to achieve the desired outcome without unnecessary delay.

I would definately recomend David!
David did a wonderful job with out dispute. He always responded to our questions and concerns quickly and competently. He always had documents prepared with time to spare for filing deadlines so we could look them over before they were submitted. We were able to go to arbitration and he was there the entire day until 10 PM to get us to a resolution. In the end we got everything we wanted through arbitration.
