David (Dave) is a consummate professional and a genuinely good person. He's always available when we're dealing with time sensitive matters, even talking by phone when he is out of town on personal matters. I can't say enough about Dave's conscientious work with my family and myself in dealing with the very complicated and sometimes emotionally sensitive issues related to estate planning. He is a true expert and always remembers the particulars of our situation; we're never a faceless client with Dave.

I can recommend David 100% without any reservation. He is precise, attentive, effective and insightful. His work was exceptionally thorough and accurate. He was patient with us as he helped us with our estate planning. He was able to make us understand the scope of our needs and the needs of our family. He was very easy to work with. The experience was actually pleasant, which was a huge relief to us.
