    I have known Barry Davidson professionally since the mid 1980's. I have worked on many complex bankruptcy cases both as co and opposing counsel. I have represented him as the Receiver in a very lengthy and complicated state court receivership. Barry is one of the best bankruptcy/receivership attorneys in Washington. I highly recommend him.
