"As you can no doubt tell from the following information and resume, Don has had a very busy life. To talk to Don, you might not get a sense of all that he’s accomplished, because he’s not big on blowing his own horn like some people. In fact, he prefers quiet competence over the grandiose statements made by others. Under promising and over delivering is a hallmark of Don’s career. So is honesty. In fact, honesty is a lot more important to Don than money or fame will ever be. If it’s bad news, Don will tell it to you straight. If it’s good news, he’ll do the same."

"Unfortunately, in the practice of law, there seems to be a trend developing where attorneys tell potential clients what they want to hear and not want they need to hear. Don won’t do that and realizes that he’s going to lose a potential client or two every now and then because they can’t or don’t want to hear “the truth and that’s a risk he’s willing to take to keep his personal integrity. Your legal problem is a big deal and we want you to know that it’s important to us, too. We also want you to know that we're interested in developing a long term relationship with you that will last well after your case is completed and we’re willing to work hard and treat you right to make sure that happens. That philosophy is probably why so many of our prior clients refer their family and friends with new problems when they need help, too."

"In fact, in December 2010, a prior client called Don for help with a big problem that ended up being world-wide news for several weeks. Don got the call for help because his client knew that he could count on Don when the chips were down and Don didn’t disappoint him. In fact, Don had to interrupt his own vacation to help his client, which he did because that’s what it took. In the end, after the countless interviews and appearances on television talk shows were over, Don and his client remain friends because Don took care of this client and was there when he needed him. Just so you know, that’s exactly the kind of dedication to his clients that makes Don different."

"In case you’re wondering, Don appeared on Good Morning America, Anderson Cooper 360, CNN, Fox & Friends, Sacramento News 10, Fox News, CBS News, ABC News, the Tom Sullivan Radio Show, the Gil Rose Radio Show, Bob Davis – Northwest Nights and was reported on in the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, BBC News, AOL News, UK Daily Mail, MSNBC, the New York Post, Sacramento Bee, the Seattle Times, the Long Beach Press Telegram, the Post Register, Standard-Examiner, 1310 News, KGO 810 News, Yahoo News, the Examiner, the Bay Citizen, Tulsa World, the Denver Post, Express UK, the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia), Mexico Informador and countless others. Feel free to Google Don’s name – the references go on for pages."

The point that we’re trying to make is that relationships count and we don’t just have clients, we build relationships that last. If you would like to talk about how we can help you, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Consultations are always free.
