    I have had the pleasure of working with David in his capacity as a political advocate and as a criminal defense attorney. After working with David on a matter being debated by the State Legislature, I quickly realized that David is a results oriented individual whom I could rely on as an accurate source of knowledge and effective political organizer. David applies this same wealth of knowledge and strong advocacy to his criminal defense practice which has made him a formidable litigator.
