I approached Dave to represent my technology startup company. We had an initial meeting during which Dave introduced me to a couple of his colleagues with whom I would be working on day to day business. Following the meeting, we went through a few iterations on the engagement agreement.
I have been working with Dave and his colleagues for over a year now.
Throughout, my experience has been absolutely delightful. Dave and his colleagues defy all the stereotypes of attorneys. They are always just a phone call away. They share their deep expertise with genuine enthusiasm and without the slightest pretension. They structure their work for us in a manner that produces quality results while remaining sensitive to the limited financial resources of a startup. I value them as much for their deep business acumen as I do for their legal expertise.
Dave is a top notch attorney and is a pleasure to work with.

Dave served as general counsel for our early state startup, as well as negotiating our eventual merger. What struck me most was the incredible level of insight he provided for business issues, not strictly legal issues. He was very engaged in our business, provided excellent advice, and was available and responsive. His extended team is also top-notch.

Dave is a very bright, capable lawyer who will take the time to figure out a challenging issue and get it right. He's got a wide range of experience, including doing work for successful companies such as Amazon.com, and is a frequent speaker on securities law and other topics. I've done a number of deals opposite Dave over the years - he stands out as someone who really seems to love the law and is engaged in his work.
