“Dave made us feel as though we were his only clients … if you are ever in need of a kind, efficient, dependable and thoughtful lawyer, my husband and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
“He has seen it all from complex corporate cases to the smallest — but no less important — personal cases.”
What I Do
I represent individuals, business owners and businesses in financial distress. I handle bankruptcy cases under all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code as well as non-bankruptcy workouts and restructurings. I also advise clients on asset protection issues, litigation strategies and general business law matters. Finally, I devote roughly 15% of my professional time to pro bono work, taking cases through the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society.
