"I have found David to be a very effective, strategic, easy-to-work-with, and efficient lawyer. I greatly appreciate his overall approach about getting to the finish line. His advice is always right on target. When David is on your team, he is one of the good guys. I wouldn't like to be on the other side."

"Mr. Bulitt skillfully addressed the complex issues surrounding my divorce, not only understanding the "usual" emotional issues, but also my child's special needs. His patience, compassion, and experience were invaluable. Mr. Bulitt clearly recognized the assets and issues that were most important to each party, and helped to negotiate a win-win scenario for both of us. Accordingly, my ability to co-parent my son with his father has greatly improved."

- Lisa Wiederlight-Gibson (Wiederlight/Gibson Consulting, LLC), Baltimore, MD
