David has always been professional in our many encounters. He knows his practice area well and takes the high road in an area of the profession that is known for greedy "ambulance chasers." I respect David as a fellow attorney and trust him to handle my family's affairs.

2 Questions Answered

Q. What happens if I decide not to go through with medical treatment that my settlement is supposed to cover?
A: That's a good question. It could have negative implications for your health. In addition, it could affect your settlement. Furthermore if you wait too long to treat you may never be able to resume treatment.
Q. If my husband was driving on a suspended license, but got injured and wasn't at fault can he sue the other driver?
A: Yes he may be able to. It all depends upon the total facts. I am here now if you wish to speak.
