Best car accident Attorney I had ever worked with
David Mordekhov was hired by my insurance company to handle a case that i was involved in an accident. David did thorough research, asked lots of right questions in the depositions, he is very knowledgeable about the process, polite, respectful , thus aggressive at the same time. He is patient, efficient, responsive, takes time to explain things, and address all of the concerns and possible questions that we had. I will not hesitate to recommend David to anybody who needs a car accident attorney.

I couldn’t have easily settled without him
I hired Mr. Mordekhov following two unfortunate accidents that occurred within a few months of one another. Neither was my fault and both were complicated for different reasons. The stress from the accidents and my injuries, coupled with navigating all the complex legalities, justified hiring someone to act on my behalf and advocate for what I deserved. I am satisfied with the outcome of both settlements and would hire him again. Although, I hope I never need to.

Definitely recommend
David Mordekhov is the best car accident attorney that my family had a pleasure to meet and hire. He is a lifesaver. He knows exactly what he is doing, knowledgeable about every step of the process, patient and efficient, takes time to explain every needed detail and address all of the concerns and possible questions that we had. My case was fairly complicated from the very beginning - originally, I started with a different attorney, who turned out to be unprofessional and dropped our case two thirds in the allowed insurance claim time frame without having any progress done - and that's during my continued after-accident therapy. We had about a third of our available time left, packs of bills - and no attorney. We contacted David per recommendation and explained the situation to him. He listened carefully, acquired needed information, and... agreed to take our case. David showed himself in the best light: he quickly took care of our immediate problems, contacted the other party's insurance company, started the settlement process. David was available for a personal meeting, via text, email, and phone every step of the way. David took care of all conversations with other party's, settlement process, and all other matters. We ended up finishing the case early and successfully, purely thanks to David's professionalism and skill. My family is enternaly grateful. David has definitely set the bar high for every other attorney for us. Especially after experiencing the first attorney we had to work with in this case. We will gladly be back to work with David if there's ever a need.

Thoughtful and thorough
Like most people I think, when I was in a collision 10 months ago, I was in shock and really had no idea what to do about my injuries. I was lucky enough to get help from David right from the beginning, and as I look back over the months of insurance negotiations and therapy, my appreciation and admiration for his support continues to grow. He gave just enough advice to coach me through each phase without overwhelming me, but more importantly his coaching kept adding up over time to ensure that the final settlement process was as painless as it could conceivably be. He was calm and understanding, sympathetic to my anxieties and pain, and positive throughout. I’ve come out the other side grateful for everything he did to make my recovery and settlement successful.

auto accident
I would recommend mr.mordekhov to my friends and family. he was by far the best lawyer in the court room when he represented me.

Recommend Highly
I believe Mr. Mordekhov's attention to detail, perseverance, and thoughtfulness in asking and answering our questions as well as developing a strategy in our lawsuit was most critical to the positive outcome of our case. He was most professional and polished in his presentations before the judge and in his examination of those he questioned. It was a pleasure to have him represent us.

Highly recommended!!!
I am a dentist. Several years ago I sustained a serious fracture due to a defectively manufactured piece of sports equipment. I hired David as my lawyer. David pursued my case very aggressively and was able to build a strong case against the at fault party, so that they decided to settle out of court. I would highly recommend David.

Highly Recommend
My family and I sought David Mordekhov's counsel for a wide range of legal matters over the past 4 years. He is knowledgeable, attentive, very easy to communicate with, and most importantly, he is excellent at what he does. David speaks both Russian and English fluently, which was a big help since I'm a native Russian speaker. I highly recommend David to both Russian and English speaking communities.
