Don’t hire this attorney, he has no idea what he is doing!
I hired David Penny in a high conflict custody situation. David failed to file the proper documents twice in my pleadings and the Judge couldn’t render any verdict as the paperwork was filed incorrectly. David did not listen to me nor did he do what I asked him to do. I never felt heard or understood by David.. Worst Attorney Ever! Do not give any money to this scammer..
