Client Comments

"David handled a challenging and potentially costly case for us with a high degree of skill and professionalism. I couldn't be any happier with the job he did for us. He was mindful of costs but was very thorough at the same time. David was able to secure clean victories at both the District Court and State Supreme Court."
