Satisfied Client
I have worked with David on both complex business and personal matters for several years. I have been completely satisfied by his services in every matter - which is remarkable since many of my needs are outside of his primary focus. He is remarkably thorough and prudent and brings a very intellectual yet common-sense approach to his practice. My continued reliance on David is the best evidence of my recommendation.
