Affordable attorney with great communication and favorable results We run a small business in AZ and had a customer in New Mexico who hadn’t paid us for product and services rendered. The customer was in the process of trying to sell their business so we had to intervene in their sale to get our proceeds. It was an out of the box kind of situation and David took it on no problem and with ease. We are out of state and David handled it all for us remotely which was a plus. Thanks to David, we ended up receiving our money plus interest. He was a pleasure to work with and his communication during the entire process was amazing. Thanks again David for all of your help!

When you need someone to fight for you- David will be there! David is our go-to attorney for resolving contract and real estate disputes. He isn't afraid to go up against big corporations to fight for what is right, but always keeps an eye on how to resolve matters in a way where the out-of-pocket cost for us is minimized. We trust David's opinion both on when to move forward and when to settle. David is incredibly smart and his work meticulous, but most importantly he has helped us gainfully resolve disputes with individuals and companies that we never expected would come to a favorable conclusion.

Harvard Law graduate serving Las Cruces and Southern New Mexico with a focus on Business Litigation and federal appeals. The majority of my practice involves representing businesses and individuals in contract, fraud, partnership, and real estate disputes. I have litigated in courts all over the country, arguing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and briefing the U.S. Supreme Court. I am particularly comfortable litigating in federal district court, having completed two federal clerkships. Whatever the scope of your project, I will provide you with excellent, diligent representation few other attorneys can match.
