David currently serves as “Of Counsel” to the firm. Because he began his practice of law in 1973, he offers a long term perspective on the art of legal representation. The basis of that representation is trust - trust that David not only has his client’s interests at heart, but also that his clients feel comfortable enough to ask every question, and explore every option.
David’s practice is now focused on business, estate planning and probate, residential and commercial real estate matters, and in particular, preserving family properties. His former and current clients include, among others, both large and small businesses, large and small estates, and scores of families looking for ways to continue to hold on to their cottages or camps in a democratic and fair family entity.
