“Dave’s professionalism is unmatched. I have hired Dave on two separate occasions. Both occasions my livelihood was on the line and he went to bat for me both times and he knocked it out of the park. What I appreciate most about him is that he is honest. He will tell you exactly what is going on and not just tell you what you want to hear. He has your best interest in mind with every move he makes. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Because of him I have a second chance. Thanks Dave”. ~ By a client, as written on the AVVO website.
