David’s Philosophy:

“I believe the issues raised by our family law clients are some of the most challenging issues lawyers face. I am a zealous advocate for my clients and professionally help them navigate the legal, emotional and financial complexities of their cases. My clients’ issues affect the most personal parts of their lives and have long term implications for their critical relationships and financial well being. It is an honor and privilege to help resolve those issues by tirelessly working to help my clients understand their options and get the best results possible.”
