Client Reviews
David and his staff are exceptional when it comes to legal assistance. I had a particular case and his team was very knowledgeable and quick to respond whenever I had a question. Don't bother going elsewhere. David knows his stuff. Bob S.
I've been a taxi driver in the Bay Area for almost 8 years. I made a terrible decision and I was facing a one year loss of my license. I wouldn't be able to pay my rent or provide for my family so I was terrified. Incredibly he won my DMV hearing and I got no license suspension. He also got my DUI charge reduced to a reckless driving. He was very friendly and informative. He will always be the only lawyer that I go to! Jason
