"Unlike most attorneys who merely point out all the risks and leave it to the business person to weigh the pro's and con's of how or whether to move forward, David was always a willing and able participant in such deliberations. His counsel will reduce legal risk but his experience will also allow clients a balanced, nuanced understanding so they can move forward."
