I have known David for over 15 years, and he's not only the best at what he does but a genuinely good person. Trust is the most crucial thing and skill set when searching for an attorney. David has both. But the thing that I am sure sets him apart from all other immigration attorneys is that David is an exceptional communicator. I would happily recommend anyone I know to him.
