About David
It’s easy and involves no risk for an attorney to tell a client ‘No, you can’t do that.’ A good lawyer works to figure out a proper way to achieve the client’s goal and say ‘Yes, you can do that, and here’s how you need to go about it.
Q&A
  • What do you find most exciting about your work?

    Nothing pleases me more than helping a client unlock value—whether that is by purchasing a business, selling an asset, or restructuring a troubled company. That is why I became a lawyer and why I still enjoy the practice of law.
