David was a real Menshe When I first met Dave I was very scared that my life was over because of my serious drug charges . He's demeanor put me at ease He said he could help me After a year and a half of working with Dave he got my charges reduced to Probation . I am so glad I had Dave representing me. I would probably be in jail right now if not for him I feel very privileged knowing him the last year of his life May he rest in peace
