    Client Comments

    "I have dealt with David Senter for almost 10 years. He is the ultimate professional. He and his staff have collected 90% of the cases we have placed with them. He is extremely prompt in answering our legal questions and has been a guest speaker on many occasions for our credit association. David is someone who helps make our department and company stronger by being on our team. We would be at a loss without his representation and friendship."
