"Over the years I have had interaction with many lawyers, and I would put Dave Palmer at the top of my list for any litigation issues. Integrity is very important to me and Mr. Palmer has impressed me with his loyalty, ethics, and concern for me as his client. He gets his point across without intimidation and yet he has the personal presentation that controls a courtroom. Mr. Palmer doesn't miss any details and he shares open communication with me without trying to either, "sugar coat" or downplay his expectations of the case.
