I worked alongside David in a complex Chapter 11 Bankruptcy trying to save a struggling medical company. Even though he represented the primary creditor, he recognized that the best outcome for all involved was to help the company to continue to operate. Without his contributions, we would not have succeeded. I’d recommend David without hesitation.
