Offering them the benefit of four decades of experience, Dave serves as a key adviser and lawyer for clients in both the public and the private sectors. In his practice he has built longstanding trusting relationships with clients, who rely on his legal knowledge and understanding of the law as it works in the local context.

As a trial lawyer with a business and municipal law background, Dave understands the interrelationship of government and business, and applies his experience in contract and land use law to working in the court system.
