Praising Our Service and Results
“I went to another lawyer for my divorce and was told it would take 6 months for it to be final. 3 years later, I decided enough was enough and went to David to take care of it. David told me the divorce was not filed properly the first time and that we would have to start over. We were told again it would be done in 6 months. His knowledge of the process gave us the comfort that this time it would be handled properly. After 6 months as promised, my divorce was final without issues. We are so pleased to have an attorney who delivered what he promised. David is very competent, and I would recommend him highly to friends or family without hesitation.”
