What clients and colleagues have said about David

I worked with David while at the District Attorney’s office. David is very knowledgeable in the law. David has outstanding attention to detail and the critical ability to see the big picture, then find and question the inconsistencies in the reports. This is a fundamental skill that makes a good criminal defense lawyer great. I highly recommend David.
— Greg Green, attorney
David is a tireless advocate for his clients and a consummate professional with whom I’ve worked on a variety of legal matters. His character and integrity surely set him apart from many of his contemporaries. As colleague, I wholeheartedly recommend David to anyone seeking counsel in the NYC area.
— Hari Singh, Court Attorney
David is a first-rate trial lawyer. Having had the opportunity to both watch him in trial and personally try a case with him, I can say that I would be glad to have him working with me on a case. His delivery is excellent, as is his ability to connect with a jury.
— Bryce Allen, Deputy District Attorney
David is solid attorney who offers candid and reliable advice. He has helped my family on legal issues in past and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
— Eric T, former client
