    We make every effort to keep these databases accurately updated, but please read the terms and conditions under which the information is provided by bestlawyers.com. The fact that a lawyer has been voted by his or her peers into Best Lawyers in a legal practice area does not signify that the lawyer has been certified by a state board of legal specialization in that practice area or specialty. A listing in Best Lawyers does not guarantee a desired legal result.

    The Texas Board of Legal Specialization has a board certification process that determines whether a lawyer may hold himself or herself out as a specialist in a field of law. The lawyers listed in Best Lawyers are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers and have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. Clients are urged to check a lawyer's firm web page to determine whether he or she is board certified in a specialty or subspecialty.

    Endeavor Real Estate Group
    "David Armbrust has worked with our company on several different major projects involving securing local government approvals, public financial assistance, lobbying for several changes in state law, and litigation. David is truly a gentleman and is well known and well liked by all with whom he works. His style is to advocate on behalf of his clients efficiently and with clarity, and then to listen carefully to the feedback from the public officials. Further, he responds quickly, and in-depth to even the most complex set of circumstances. The information that he gives to his clients is concise, frank, and to the point. His advice is always well founded, complete, and directed towards achieving the goals of the client. As a large, multi-national, public corporation, it is most important that our interests are represented in the most competent, yet discrete manner. David presents a local face for our corporation in a manner that is both well trusted and respected, and can be relied upon to be of the highest integrity and competence."

    "David Armbrust has represented me in real estate contract as well as entitlement work for many years. He is helpful, articulate, and has a complete grasp of what it takes to do a deal. He is not a deal-breaking lawyer, but rather a deal maker, and he understands the importance of timely responses. Mr. Armbrust is my "go-to" guy for the tough deals."
