About David

How do you help businesses and individuals?

I assist businesses and financial institutions in navigating complex commercial transactions. My experience is broad in scope from facilitating the transaction on the front-end to providing solutions when problems arise. After gaining an understanding of the needs of our clients, I work collaboratively with them to plan the best route to achieve the desired outcome, whether that outcome requires an “all hands on deck” approach or, as is frequently the case, a simple solution.

What sets you apart from other lawyers in your practice field?

Communicating early and often with clients is a key aspect of my practice. The most perfect technical achievement is not valuable to the client unless the client is informed and understands the solution.

How do any of your community interests or activities facilitate how you represent your client?

The non-profit boards with which I participate allow me to exercise the judgment and discretion that I have learned over the years. My practice has assisted my ability to serve on those boards, and in turn, the service on those boards helps my practice. A true “win-win.”

Q: What is the most important ingredient to making a positive legal experience?


Clients have a more positive experience when they participate with their lawyer in setting realistic goals at the beginning of an engagement and when they are kept abreast of the progress throughout the course of the matter.
