      David Kirch handled a sensitive, difficult and frustrating legal matter for me, leading me through painful litigation with wise, ethical and experienced skill. His conduct of the matter brought him the admiration of the court and other attorneys. Since I am, myself, an attorney, I could detect David's use, on some occasions, of extra-skillful advocacy which might have gone unnoticed by a layman, I am grateful for his services, and would highly recommend him to others.
