Dave is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law and has an amazing recall of specific cases and resources. In addition to being a great attorney he is an exceptional mediator. Mediation is always a tough part of legal work and Dave is excellent. His good reputation for mediation is known throughout the legal community, which is helpful when we collaborate. I refer Dave regularly, he is always in my top 2 or 3 when I am asked for a reference for local mediators.
Dave is the one that coined the phrase, “If you don’t have my cell phone, you certainly should.” With Dave it’s not just a phrase though, he means it. He’s always available.”

“I’ve known Dave since 1984, but I didn’t need his services until about the year 2000. Since then, I’ve utilized Dave for everything from estate planning and benefits to investments and personal liability issues. Dave is a man of character who truly knows the law. He’s very thoughtful. He takes time to listen to what I have to say and then responds with pertinent questions and ideas, allowing me make the best decision based on the circumstances.
I also really respect Dave for his connections within the legal community. When I’ve had something that he feels would be better served by a colleague, he not only refers me, but paves the way so that it’s an easy, comfortable contact for me to make. Through the years, he has always been more than willing to help me.”
